😄 That depends. Empty or loaded? Are we talking a few hours or cross country? Are there any mountains involved? All trailer brakes is something like 40 percent or more of a rig depending on the number of axles. Soooooo many variables and counter questions.I asked one guy a question if he'd brake an air line to a parking brake on the trailer. Service brakes still functional.
Would you cage the spring brake and zip tie the air line to get you home to fix it in the shop?.....
Holy Hanna broken brakes Batman. You'd have thought I'd asked him to betray HRC.
He was gonna report the company to the Dot, he was being expected to operate an Out-of-service piece of equipment. Illegally. Time to call the US Marshalls.
I asked him if he know of a book from cvsa that gave oos criteria. Was he aware you could have a percentage of brakes non-functional.
I was so out of touch. I had no business running a trucking company . On and on and on....
And then I told him I wasn't interested in leasing him on..
It was a personal insult how I wasn't willing to bring someone on of his caliber......
Yeah, he'd have been one of those big into #BSM.
