mine has an annoying alarm that sounds constantly as long as the air is off the tags.  There is also an indicator light on my dash that alerts me to the fact.

Jim,

Just as another data point, we are 24/10 on the back.  If I had a way to do it (I don't), I'd actually move 3/4 ton of that from the drivers to the tags.

Oh come on, tekebird.

The busnuts without a background in the commercial transport industry look to this board for help and advice.

And they are left wondering whether they should be lifting/unloading the tags when cornering in order to save tire money.

There might be a question as to whether the calibre of today's commercial driver might not be what we like to think it used to be, but that is clouding the point.

Tags stay down unless I need the extra weight for the drives to get out of the parking lot in the snow.

happy coaching!
