    After you train yourself to the timing needed to start your assigned tractor and then you get into something totally different. It's very awkward. You don't know what the hell you are doing. And what you are doing isn't working out. Which gets frustrating quickly and snowballs into wanting to blow :shit: up and roast marshmallows. At least, that's how it is with me.

    Please help I driving a 2017 freightliner and I had no training on how to release the fifthwheel. I been standing on the passenger side looking for the release. Oh wait there it is on the drivers side.
    Should have had a video showing the change.

    Is this what your driving? The latch handle is under the seat. Just keep looking for it. While the video comes out.

    Don't laugh. One of the fac guys called dispatch, can't get unhooked from pup. Went out. He says I can't open the door, handle is broken. He said this, leaning out the open window. Really happened.

    Here's your sign.

    We realy hire some winners don't we. I saw a senior driver high hook a trailer and almost run the back of the cab into the trailer. He go out bitching up a storm about the trailer be dropped high. I said why didn't you just look out the back window and look. That thing you he'd sit on is a neck and is used to rotate you head. That really pissed him off.

    Driving a truck is just like being with a woman everyone is different and you need to do something different to start that engine.:1sm364jumpbed:
