No offense, but the operators of these big rigs should be held to the same testing and regulations as a commercial driver.
The only time the air drained down enough to set the alarm was when I was stopped with the parking brake set and I was trying to figure out the issue. The alarm never went off while I was driving.
No offense taken but I hear truckers complain all the time about motorhome drivers and the lack of a CDL like a truck driver. The thing is, the CDL is based on weight, not size of the rig. My coach comes in at 26,000 and change when loaded and a 18 wheeler is around 80,000. Big difference there. Also as posted above by a fleet owner or manager, his own professional drivers ignore the air hiss as well, so , so much for testing and regs. I have seen truckers do some pretty stupid things and illegal things and they are "professional" drivers....... Should an RV driver also have to have a medical card too?
