    Only had 20 p2 left at 1 pm today. Made a residential stop and my izuzu reach takes a crap on me. After waiting for a tow and then waiting on a second truck, got done and clocked out a 6 pm. What a start to the weekend ..

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    How long were you in code 24?

    At our station, unless you're right there in town the wait is usually 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 hours.

    All together 3 hrs. The tow got there in about 2, then another hour to get another truck to me, since no one was available to switch and no one available at the station to just drive a truck up. Only down side to the whole ordeal was not being near a gas station to get some water, just sitting there with no ac and sweating away.
     
  4. That's why you always bring supplies with you.

    I should say, I ran out of water. Resident actually came home as the truck was being towed away. Last was definitely not drinking well water

    On our farthest extended route that I cover I broke down about 150 miles from the station,(this was at 4 in the afternoon) sent all my pups to the closest route and took me until 21:00 to finish the deliveries and make it back to the station

    It didn't used to be that way. Only since FedEx bought RPS. Before that, our trucks would be blown out too.

    Thats because we're Express... not ground. I'm sure the ground peeps have the same walkway issue that you do. Do your air drivers still have a blocked aisle at 11?

    Yesterday was light. I did 4 routes in total because DRA went split crazy.

    Did you have a newer reach? I didn't think the older ones had a cig lighter.

    So are we.
    SOME trucks have lighters. Most have AC unless it's real old and mechanics won't fix it.
