Jack,

There are all kinds on this forum as there are on most forums where people can join without screening and approvals.

Don't let people get the best of you, it isn't worth it.

Just focus on offering your opinions and advice. Also facts when backed up with data and written proof.

You will find that there will be some people that are clueless and others that are thankful.

Just keep taking the "high" road and the others will most likely find themselves run over eventually if they don't step aside.

Mel,

C'mon, you will need a set of chocks to perform some Air Brake tests.

They are related and relative!

Did you miss that part of the thread?

Just say'n.

I read all of the posts on a thread, but do not pay much attention to "off
topic" posts.

BTW I don't perform Air Brake tests..... I don't have air brakes.... but I do carry chocks.

Heck....go for it....adjust all you want ( without certification)....just against the law! Same regulations apply here in Canada and will "void" your ICBC insurance in BC.

You also did a good job of insulting, demeaning and assuming. Didn't quite see all of the pertinent and informational data that you now posted in that other post. You are excused however even though you still sound rather snippy.

texas DMV says

Slack Adjustors
Look for broken, loose, or missing parts.

The angle between the push rod and adjustor arm
should be a little over 90 degrees when the brakes are
released, and not less than 90 degrees when the
brakes are applied.


When pulled by hand, the brake rod should not move
more than one inch with the brakes released.

Brake Chambers

See that brake chambers are not leaking, cracked, or
dented and are mounted securely.

Brake Hoses/Lines

Look for cracked, worn, or leaking hoses, lines, and
couplings.

Drum Brake

Check for cracks, dents, or holes. Also check for loose
or missing bolts.

or missing bolts.

Previous post on chocks + brake inspection applies.

Yes a good set of wheel chocks are a must have when you have to inspect the undercarriage of your rig or do any kind of work on your rig. Then clean your hands with a certified towel that meets dot regulations lol.

I carry 2 rubber chocks & I use them anytime I am parked for an extended amount of time. I believe I never have actually needed them , but that doesn't stop me from using them. I use them & I stow them in the same place each time. I know where they are & if I need them I can go directly to the correct compartment & get them with ease. Old habits , I use them at work every day.

Ditto.

I never used them and would never raise my rear wheels off the ground.
