PIB TIP: CHOOSING A TRAILER. Among all owner-operators, trailer ownership brings a $6,000 gain in yearly net income. Even with the additional costs of operating your own trailer, the average added earning potential in flatbed, dry van and reefer segments returns the investment in roughly two or three years. The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Freightliner Trucks.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
