Good Point!

Figured this should fall under the category of praise.

Just noticed, actually yesterday, that the "good answer" next to the star has been replaced by "good point". Never liked the "good answer" option as many topics really didn't get "answered". Well done Koodo/GetSat!

Good point! :-) Now, let's see who has the best ratio in terms of number of comments and stars. It may show who is viewed as the "best" with answers.

You are 15% Sophia vs. 10% for me. I gotta stop commenting. :-) No ability to 'star' someone even if they have a good point. :-( If someone wants that they'd have to respond in 'reply to this topic' window.

If someone has a "Question" it says "Good Answer".

If someone has an idea it says "Good Point"

There's nothing if someone posts praise.

@KA,I've watched both and while I liked the drivers as individuals, alot of what they (producers) show you as far as technical aspects is total made for drama BS. For instance the brake application guage doesn't go up when the brakes are released, it goes to zero. Half of us don't even have our radios on yet these guys seem to have an amazing range on theirs. And my favorite bit of bs was irc episode where the chicks truck broke down while she was in the middle of nowhere. And she had to huddle with another chick to keep warm, how they travel in the dead of winter with no aux bunk heater is beyond me unless they idle all night and no employer wants to pay that bill.

I don't think you get Koodo coverage up in Nunavut...

Up in the bush we use vhf radios - 25 mile range, I'm running a 50 watt Kenwood radio. (IRT/DR) Agreed on the BS, wayyy too much drama, the chics were there to increase ratings and a few of the "accidents" were staged.

Other stuff retracted :)

I ran without an APU/ABH one year in -30 degree weather, not fun, had to keep the truck running at 1800 rpm to stay warm. I have one now, lol!

Ahem. Unless your foor is on the brake, the application guage should be at zero. YYou're thinking the reservoir guages primary and secondary

I don't have that gauge in the 9900i, run without one for years (looking at the instrument cluster now) but in that case you are correct.

This one's about two maybe three trucks ago. I've gone through a few myself.
On a bit of an angle because cars had to get by me. '08 Western Star C-15 550hp 13spd. Rare reefer run.

Another just to clarify:

The Two Guages to the right of the pin are application (A)
