    Texas Exempt Class A (Non-CDL)

    Getting ready to take both my written and skills test for a Class A Exempt (non-CDL) Texas license. Other than the Texas driving handbook, can anyone recommend a site that will help me with the test questions? And, since I have a big rig in the form of a fifth wheel that I pull with a semi truck, what kind of skills in Texas will they expect me to demonstrate? For instance, will there be an air test I have to perform? I just now found David & Cheryl's post on the subject that was posted in this forum in 2016. It has been updated. Excellent post answering most of my questions that I have requested here. Specifically, there are still a couple of concerns my wife and I have about the skills test. Does anyone out there have any dealings with the Waco test site. We live in Waco, and we are apprehensive about testing in the city. Also, David and Cheryl recommended that we study the section in the handbook on air brakes, but did not mention whether or not we might be asked to perform an air test. We are driving a mid sized Freightliner with air ride suspension and brakes. Being newbies, any help would be appreciated.

    Buying into RV Resorts

    My wife and I recently bought a big rig from a couple which also included a membership into Thousand Trails as part of the package deal. We are currently experiencing difficulty transferring the membership, and we wonder if it is worth the effort. We would appreciate hearing about any experiences you seasoned travelers have had concerning this resort in particular and any other rv resorts you may have had experiences. It is a big investment, and while we have read other review sites on Thousand Trails, we are not sure we trust all the information on those sites, probably from our lacking very little rv experience. We find it hard to separate legitimate from illegitimate complaints in those forums. We look forward to a long association with the Escapees RV Club and hope to meet many members. If you think you can help us, please jump in and comment. We will value any input.
  3. 1999 Freightliner FLD120 single axle tractor. In excellent shape with very low original miles. 12.7 liter Detroit Diesel, up to date on all services. Steer tires are new, drive tires approx 35% remaining. Has commercial fifth wheel and fold away goose neck ball with all the electrical hook ups to pull anything from a commercial trailer, car hauler, or a camper. Plenty of accessories inside and out, 5' stainless steel exhaust stacks, 1000 watt inverter with two plugins, toolbox for storage or generator, bunk hardly used, aftermarket steering wheel, Eaton 9 speed manual trans, new paint, stainless steel fender covers, stainless steel wing, dual 120 gallon fuel tanks, cb radio, and new cd player. Truck recently used to haul cars, but we are getting out of the business. The mileage will change some as it will still be on the road until it is sold.
