This is my third week in Feeders. I came from PM Air so I knew nothing about driving rigs until I started my training. I was awarded my Class A last Monday, and my first day own was yesterday (I wasn't called in to work all week until yesterday). My first week of training wasn't the greatest because my supervisor was new, and my second week, although better, was with a trainer who expected me to learn everything after only having been told a procedure once. I'm a visual and hands on guy, so him spouting out quickly how to do something didn't really help, especially when I would ask him a question like, "How do I _____?" and he'd respond with something like, "How did you _____ yesterday?" Well damn, you got me on that one. How about you just train me on everything I need to know in just one day, then? No point in 2 weeks of training if you can just tell me everything in a day, that way I have it all memorized... >_< Since yesterday was my first day on my own, I was kind of iffy on the way I was doing it. I mean, I got em hooked up properly, but I probably didn't do it in the best order. My procedure is: 1) Find a dolly, pre-trip it and drain all the air by pulling the cord, and attach it to the back of my tractor 2) Spot the dolly in front of the lightest loaded trailer. 3) Get the heavier trailer, spot it in front of the dolly. 4) Attach the nose of the dolly to the back of the front trailer - plug in light cord - attach safety chains in a criss cross manner 5) Get in tractor and back the dolly fifth wheel into the kingpin of the back trailer - - - - - here's the part i'm kinda iffy about - - - - - 6) pull out red knob so that air isn't going through my trailer 7) attach hoses - blue dolly hose to blue front trailer glad hand - red dolly hose to red front trailer glad hand - other blue dolly hose to blue back trailer glad hand - other red dolly hose to red back trailer glad hand - plug in light cords to both trailers (does it matter which one?) 8) go back to the tractor cab, push red knob in, pull down trailer hand valve brake 9) go to the back of the front trailer, turn dials below glad hands (blue first, then red) 10) pull black dial so sponge comes out and locks dolly into the back of the front trailer ------------------- That's everything that needs to be done, I'm just not sure that's the actual order it goes in, or if there's an unnecessary step in there involving my red knob. -to the point- What is the best method to use for coupling and uncoupling trailers?
