the drive axles and trailer axles need to be adjusted. The adjustment
may be only a few holes.
How many times after doing an initial pull of the
trailer's tandem release arm does a driver have to repeat this
get out of the cab,
check on the setting,
get back in the cab, and
slide the trailer tandems more
-- until the setting is right and the release arm can
locked into place?
Every time a driver enters or exits his/her truck,
he/she risks a slip
and fall. Not only that but the truck is burning fuel idling or working
to move the trailer tandems the whole time.
This trailer locking pin locator (Generation II) uses an
system to tell you when to stop sliding the trailer.
