The freightliner cascadia 2010 I drove for PAM had one that locked up the front brakes. My cousins custom 379 had one......never used it so I have no clue what it was for. Just no it was there.

You cant drive with no air in the trailer, no air or low air locks the brakes up. Dont set the trailer brakes in cold weather, dont pull out the knob on the dash

No way, the front brakes are not lockers , an for over 25 yrs I have owned many peterbilts an not one ever had it nor came with one, the brake system is one in the truck, not seperate. Once a brake is applied ALL BRAKES ARE APPLIED.

Just telling you what my trainer told me on the freightliner. As to the custom I have no idea what the hell it did or what it was for.

Oh that was a life learning exp there. Never set the trailer brake in cold weather unless the trailer is gonna be dropped.

The little pedal under the dash on a Pete? That's for adjusting the steering wheel.

I don't know about trainers but when truck brakes freeze up we just hit the drum with a hammer.

The reason u can do the hammer on the drum tech is becouse the tractor will power through it the trailer wont do anything but drag behind ya. I have over 2 million miles behind the wheel I love people that have never drove tellin me how this work its great. I have backed up more miles than than most have pulled foward. No offense meant to YOU CINDER, YOU DO KNOW WHATS WHAT ON A TRUCK.

Like I said I've never worked on trailers and I've never driven a truck other than around the lot. And I never have claimed to know everything.

Truck Driver school grads? As you can see a driver of 25 years and a well you get the idea? We have hired hundreds of OTR drivers over the years. The real ones are hard to find. The others can not pass a Pee test?
