Air Brake Check List


Recommended Posts

I thought since this discussion came up in another thread I would post the Air Brake check list I have laminated in a book that I keep in the truck for reference. This is from the truck driver training institute we took our air brake endorsement that is required for anyone driving an air brake vehicle in Canada. It was a 8 hr course then a practical exam then a written exam at the government approved office. Hope this helps.

What's a foot valve?

It's that thing on the end of your intake pipe down in the well to keep you from losing pump prime. LOL!

Today is just the tomorrow you worried about yesterday!

Good stuff! One additional item missing for a tractor- the breakaway valve (RED) should also pop at about 60, if you have a trailer (w/air brakes)


There are many other points if you have an air brake trailer but I posted exactly what the title of the document says and is very specific to the title.

Figured I would add the CA air brake check list. These are the eight steps you must go through to receive your air brake endorsement in CA.

2018 Polaris RZR Turbo S (fits in the garage)
2016 Smart Car (fits in the garage or gets flat towed behind the DRV when the RZR is in the garage)
