How to shift a 10 speed tractor trailer

by: drbandach1
*****WHEN GOING DOWN A have to be in the proper gear BEFORE you start down the hill...failure to do so may lead to an "Out of control situation" that may cause DEATH!!!***** How to shift a big truck in 3 easy steps, LOL! When I got the silly idea I wanted to drive truck I searched You Tube on how to shift these things and really couldnt find anything good. I tried to make this as simple as I could. The biggest thing is not NOT over complicate this! Just think of it as a 5 speed... Lift the "high / low selecter" and it's another 5 speed. Slowing down is the harder part. Look at your speedometer, add the two numbers together and put it in that gear....Sounds easy? it is.... after a few days. Just remember when slowing down, in a worst case scenerio, if you mess up and can't get it in gear, you to come to a complete stop and start over...just throw your 4-ways on. Don't panic, stay calm, it's just a truck! In a few days you'll be shifting like a pro!!! Hope this helps! If you have any questions, just drop me a line.
