I thought I’d start a thread, and see what kind of mistakes all of us rookies make, that make it obvious we are rookies, and understand any mistake piloting a big truck can be a dangrous one, I’m just curious to see what others have done, here are two of mine

1. Found a spot at a ta that looked like an easy pull through, didn’t go out wide enough and got ripped a new one by the guy who owned the truck I almost hit with the trailer (only reason I didnt hit him was watching my trailer in the mirror)

2.pulling into a small pilot in Nebraska, with no one in the fuel aisle, and no clear marking on which way to pull through…ended up going in backwards and of course as I went to get turned around the place got busy

Oh and made the mistake of calling a guy who’s been driving for 20 years a super trucker
