    Thanks and yes ill give two weeks notice for sure I don't want no abandonment on my record. Leaving on good terms is good because in a emergency if you need some income that company will take you back

    I think it depends on what engine the truck has. I don't remember what the Kenworth I drove liked.

    Depends on the motor and driver.

    I always went 1600 on normal acceleration and 1750 if I wanted a little more umph.

    The drop was about 300 rpm.

    Pressure from others?! Who's pressuring you that truly matters? This is why i advise inexperienced drivers to either stay out of truck stops or to not talk to every driver out here. Many drivers, especially new drivers get influenced to make moves to easily. If you feel you want to learn something new, that's fine. Don't ever let any driver tell you what you are or aren't. Don't make moves to fit a mold. You're just as much a truck driver whether you drive an automatic, or a manual. No matter what truck you get in, you have to learn how to drive it. Each individual truck is different in some way. Anyway, it's best to be discerning about who you talk to. Minimize who you have dialogue with at the truck stop.

    I'm in my 15th year. I stay out of truck stops for the most part, except fuel, shower, and heat up my food. I don't mind truck stop food, as one can't overdo it lol
