Reefer Training with Steve


Have you ever wondered exactly how to work a refrigerated unit? Do you have issues getting through loaded breakdowns? Our trailer analyst Steve talks about these questions and more in our latest driver training video!

Working a Refrigerated Unit

Turning the Reefer On/Off
On the reefer unit, press and hold the reefer on/off button. Use this same button to turn the reefer off.

Changing Reefer Temperature
Push and hold the up arrow on the reefer control panel until you see the desired temp, then press the equals key. 

Completing Reefer Pretrip
Press the menu key on the reefer control panel. Then select pretrip and the equals key. Pretrips can take up to 20 minutes to complete. 

Reefer Trailer Fuel
Be sure to have more than a half tank before going to bed for the night. This allows the truck to preserve prime fuel, which helps drive fuel economy. When dropping a reefer, even an empty, be sure it is fueled completely. 

Loaded Breakdown
Submit a MACRO 16, put in the trailer number and alarm code. Please include what the trailer is doing or not doing properly.
