Help ! Need to move a Big Rig ASAP !!!!

So our only driver who opperates at this location ended up in the ER. We need to get this truck and trailer ( attached ) out of the loading bay before noon tomorrow . I need to drive it 3 miles 1 exit of the highway to our storage yard .

Boss wants me to do it because I'm the only one who can drive stick . Do you need to do something to get the air brakes off aka ready to drive ? It's an 18 speed . And no I dont have a Cdl but this needs to get done !

If you don't even know how to disengage the air brakes via the ****ing push/pull switch you shouldn't drive a loaded semi.

Flipping the proper switch to get it into the next range of gears.

Just go find a trucker and tell him you will give him $20 to drive the truck 3 miles. Solved.

Plenty of youtube vids showing how to drive an 18 speed. Unloaded you should be able to just leave it in high and split gears if needed.

I looked at the YouTube videos and everyone had a different shift pattern .

I moved it just using the first 5 gears and didn't go over 20 . Left the flashers on .


Success
