    • After reading your post ....I realized that most of us.....and alot more of us over think this testing thing.  I'm in North Carolina and I took my class A test this past summer....and passed.  The examiner asked me to explain the airbrake process, not perform it. An then asked me to take the rig down the road and follow where he told me to go....1st turn was to the right and HEY...looky there...a R/R crossing.  Note...slow down and when you cross do not change any gears.  It's a fail if you change a gear going across a R/R track.  Be sure to tell the examiner why you are doing this because alot of accident's happen changing gears on R/R crossings.  Then we drove down to the stop sign, made the stop, made a right turn, drove about a mile and made another right turn and behold...another R/R crossing and then on to a stop sign that he told me to make a right turn and there was the license examiner station where we had started 10 minutes ago.  He said...Well done, let's go inside and get your license.  The point here is that I tried to cover everything in the book and as many of us often do.. we over think the problem.  Texas is not I believe that much different than North Carolina when it comes to testing in the realm of a class A non CDL.  If you read up on the airbrake section and here I can't over stress this...be humble and agreeable..be polite.  These guys are slammed with work every day and I'm sure they can get pretty stressed out.  If you can show them that you can work with them...they will do their best to work with you.    Best of luck hope to see you out there on the road.

    • I made a bolt on hitch plate using 1/2 x 6" bar stock and a 5/8 plate.     This is for a 20 ton pintle hitch, 3/8 and 1/2" would work for a 20K trailer. Steve
    • One of my memories of growing up in Illinois is the roadside signs that said, "Cars towing trailers restricted to truck speeds." Our little pop-up trailer was a truck? Plus, I always thought having different speeds for different types of vehicle just made for traffic jams. "Look, ma, we're leading a parade!" Linda
    • Hi all,  I am in need of installing a bumper hitch for my trailer i pull on my T2000 Kenworth. Any recommendations on a place to start. I have looked on E-trailer and they have a weld on one but I do not think it will work.  Trailer weight 18k Length- 35' Any help appreciated
    • I looked up some other charts and I see what you mean. The only thing I can come up with is the inclusion of temperature? Most of the charts I saw seemed to be for a set temperature like 80F. We do have pretty big temp swings right now. 50-60 for the high in the afternoon and 25-35 for the low in the morning. It's a little less of a change under the skirting but it's still probably a 20 degree temp difference when I check before I go to bed and get up in the morning. Could the temperature be what I'm seeing in the voltage differences?
