Happens Ace the State of Wisconsin is big into it now days and growing state by state every day I noticed a ad for DOT people in the Idaho paper they are looking for 2 requires a collage degree.
Swift transportation has people that retrieve all that info from their trucks every time they hit Phoenix they don't care about the engine just the data about the driver and the way the truck has been driven they could care less about any codes that part is for the mechanics,I think it is just a way to stoop around in the trucks myself and fwiw I have saw the officers checking the ABS brakes on the trailers with that little hand held also it is a electronic age we live in now

good luck

John, the backup battery on a DDEC has to work in the trucking industry

nowhere to hide with a electronic engine they can check your log book against the data in that little box lol and it doesn't lie it has all the history in there  
good luck

CXlifford,

Wouldn't dream of challenging you on any subject trucking.  Or D engines and a host of other topics all of which I am not yet aware of.  As conversion "owner operators" are we responsible to keep DOT associated engine data available to any enforcement officer that wants to check our log books?  Say, what?

As for lying....I have ferreted out too many crooked defense contractors that postulated that "numbers don't lie", "test data can't be forged" and "computers cannot be manipulated".  Admittedly, that circumstance isn't always likely, and this is probably one of them, but I will hang my hat on a homily never again.LOL

And my hat is still off,

John

I don't think any law officer would worry about RV now a commercial bus is a different story never heard of a RV owner keeping a log book or the owner having a physical unless he has CDL's some of the bus owners I have met over the years the physical would do them in lol 

good luck

I know on the Ice Road Truckers show last year that the trucking company checks the ECM for max speed and average speed.  One of the drivers on the show almost got fired because his ECM showed a max speed in the 60s.  I recall they wanted the average under 40 MPH I think.  I can't imagine averaging under 40 MPH on a 1000 mile trip.

I understand why you need to average under 40 MPH on that road.  I just don't know that I could personally stand to drive under 40 MPH for 1,000 miles.

Clifford, I would love to take the course as well.  There might be enough demand just from this group to justify a special session - perhaps at a rally somewhere.

If it take it, will my hair grow back Grin?

Belfert 

 It must be a age thing.  I now have no trouble traveling at 35 to 40 mph up the Blue ridge parkway and then the Skyline Drive.

Also on my way to Jacks rally  I travel down 321 then 301 then 17 to Arcadia. Great trip.\

May take several days but why hurry. Life is to short.

Also means the difference between 3 to 4 mpg and 9 to 10 mpg.

If you can get hold of an old, not working ECM, take it to your local geek, computer hardware repairman.  Depending on the ECM generation, the battery maybe a button cell or the type that plugs into a chip socket and the memory chip plugs into the battery.  The repairman may also know how to change the battery without killing your ECM.  With all that info you can decide if you want to chance the battery replacement.
