why do you SNI drivers keep dropping your trailers so low?

    From what I was told my my ICA a DVIR does nothing but meet paper trail requirement by D.O.T. if the trailer has issues if the trailer does not have issues then it just fulfills a SNI corporate requirement.

    Only a macro 12 or a phone call to SEM notifies the proper department of the trailer issue.

    Last issue I had at a shipper (air line broken) it took 5.5 hrs to fix well 4.5 hrs before the Mechanic showed up and an hour to fix. But that was winter of 2014,ay e it's gotten better with SEM.

    From what I heard all the trucks will have an adjustable suspension - not really what I think of as a dump valve but works similarly.

    For the air hissing out 'standard' - if I have 40k plus AND a Joust style landing gear if I don't give the extra cranks I risk having the frame rail jump when the 5th wheel clears the nose and having the trailer land on the drives/frame. Don't have the same problem with the Holland.

    Yes a phone call is required to be sure (2 calls in fact) 1 to SEM and the other to DBL/ICA. I had to set at a customer pickup site for 5 hours waiting (after of 45 min. troubleshooting the problem) on a trailer repair that had no brake lights. the nose hook-up receptacle had to be replaced. The purpose for really performing pre and post inspections.

    Suspension raise/lower toggle to left; load-transfer toggle to right. Differential lock is button above.

    Yes sir it is. I don't like the automated (I'm a 13 speed kinda driver) and sure as there's a hell, DO NOT like the OnGuard. OnGuard is dangerous and a hazard more than the intended benefit.
