    My beef with today's society is, the lack of using paragraphs, in what is often, very informative posts.

    if you bought the truck and you own it, take it to a dealer and have the ecm settings changed to your liking you should have a pto mode as well that you can use to bump the idle up using the cruse switch's. if that is also disabled in the ecm that is also just a setting that can be changed by the dealer.

    Thanks CF,.
    But it's been discussed many times, this isn't a grammar class.
    Trucking, generally attracted people that didn't have the best social or grammar skills, we were "leever pullers", the only thing we physically wrote out was a "comic book" and our time cards.
    Today, everything is typed out, push a button, heck, they even have "voice activated", so you don't even have to do that, and "spell check", years ago it just wasn't that big a deal.
    So, I hope the paragraphs look better to you, quite frankly,
    I couldn't,,
    care,
    less about grammar,,,even though I do strive to make it look understandable, so I don't look like a schmoe.

    A steady pressure on the brake or throttle will not do the trick.

    One trick i learned was to use the trailer brake to park.

    Later on it became the cruise button. Does that trick not work now?
