    September at the One

    It's a new month and I'm ready to roll. The only problem I have right now is hurricane Dorian. I don't want to leave my family with that storm stalled offshore. Hopefully it will get moving today.

    Low Battery Shut Down

    Our low battery shut down appears to be kicking in while the truck is running. Everything that is connected to it shuts off for no apparent reason. Accessories, interior lights, fridge, bunk A/C, etc. The voltage meter on the truck shows it is charging at 13.9 volts and the batteries are a month...

    Anyone using a Chromebook?

    Anyone using a Chromebook? I'm getting sick of Windows. Primary use would be web surfing and doing a few spreadsheets. I already have Google sheets and docs. I am aware of the limited storage but an SD card or thumb drive would hold more than enough for me.

    Breaking down while on a load

    If you broke down while on a load and no vehicle could be located for a transfer what would your company do? Would they allow you to rent a vehicle to complete the run? If they had you towed to the receiver who would pay for the tow?

    One of the happiest days of my life

    January 7th was one of the happiest days of my life. On January 13th, 2014 my wife, Shayne, flew home to Florida from Newark, NJ to take emergency custody of our six week old granddaughter.

    Removing road dirt from vinyl

    When FedEx installed the graphics on my box they did a complete wrap in white vinyl first. Now that I am pulling the FedEx signage off I can see just how much road dirt has accumulated on the vinyl. (The letters come off easily.) Anyone know of a product that will take this road grime off? I've...

    Sleeper Air Bag

    I need to replace a sleeper air bag on a 2006 Freightliner Columbia with the factory condo sleeper. I think the leak is to fast to try and get it to my local shop. Do I have to release the shock absorber and jack up the sleeper to get the old one off? I have a floor jack and a piece of wood I...
