To accomplish this, it’s important to have a plan for maintenance issues whenever and wherever they occur.
So, we’ve established some specific guidelines for the most common repair items. Many of these repairs can be made by utilizing the tool and bulb kit that was provided to you.
This chart will help determine whether the requested repair should be scheduled for a roadside repair or if it can be scheduled for a more cost-effective repair at the nearest repair facility
Each of these repair items will fall into one of two categories:
1) OOS (or Out of Service) – This is when the needed repair meets the out-of-service criteria and a roadside service call is needed.
That critera being a vehicle defect that creates a condition so dangerous that the vehicle can not be driven until the condition has been repaired.
2) RFR (or Route for Repair) – This is when the repair does not meet the out-of-service criteria and can be routed to a repair facility.
The first repair item is the ABS light. The ABS malfunction indicator light is located on the trailer or dash light in the cab. In most cases this does not require a roadside service call.If the light remains on after the initial cycle check at start up, we will generally route you to the nearest repair facility.
The next item is the Brake light. If you’re pulling a trailer, these are located on the rear of the trailer. But if you’re bobtailing, these are on the rear of the tractor.If all brake lights are malfunctioning, a roadside service call is necessary.However, if you have at least one working brake light, then we will typically route you to the nearest repair facility.
The third item is the headlight. If both headlights are out, a roadside service call is necessary. However, if at least one headlight is working on low beam, we will most likely route you to the nearest repair facility.
The Taillight is next. In most cases this is the trailer taillight. However, this will be the tractor taillight if you’re bobtailing. If all taillights aren’t working, a roadside service call is necessary. But, if at least one taillight is working, we will generally route you to the nearest repair facility.
The fifth item is the turn signal light. Like the taillight, this is usually on the trailer. But if you’re bobtailing, it will be on the tractor.If any rear turn signal lights are not functioning properly, a roadside service call is necessary. We will most likely route you to the nearest repair facility if it’s the side or front facing turn signals that aren’t working correctly.
The mud flaps are next. In most cases, this does not require a roadside service call. If you can not replace or repair a mud flap on your own, we will typically route you to the nearest repair facility.
The seventh item is the tires. A roadside service call is necessary for any problems with a steer axle tire, as well as a tire with a noticebale leak or less than 50 percent of the maximum inflation pressure, which is 60 psi or less. We will generally route you to the nearest repair facility if there is minor tire damage, such as low tread depth or a leak with air pressure above 50 percent.
The final item is the windshield wipers. Windshield wipers can typically be replaced at the nearest repair facility, unless you’re in inclement weather. In this case, if your driver’s side wiper and washer are not working or damaged so much that they’re ineffective, a roadside roadside service call is necessary. If it is damaged but still clears the driver’s side effectively or if it’s the passenger side, then we will generally route you to the nearest repair facility.
To help avoid any possible citations if you are routed to a nearby repair facility, you must note the defect on the pre-trip inspection checklist and receive a message detailing the scheduled repair plan via the MCP200.
The most cost-effective solution is key. As stated earlier, many of these repairs can be made by you, the driver, with the tool and bulb kit provided to you. This chart is available for review, download, or print on the Driver Portal. Please contact your fleet manager or the safety hotline with any specific questions.
