The 2012-2013 Recommended Practices Manual – compiled by the Technology & Maintenance Council of the American Trucking Associations – has been updated to provide the latest comprehensive maintenance and spec’ing information, comprising more than 2,900 pages.

The 2012-2013 manual includes the latest recommended practices for:

• Tires and wheels;
• Engines;
• Electrical and instruments;
• Fleet maintenance management;
• Chassis and brake systems;
• Cab and controls;
• Trailers, bodies and material handling;
• Cost control methods;
• Energy conservation; and
• Onboard vehicle electronics.
