PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Kenworth T680 and T880 trucks, and Peterbilt 567 and 579 trucks, all equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. The display software that indicates which transmission gear the driver selected may display incorrectly. The display can indicate ‘N’ when the shifter is set into ‘D’ or ‘R’, and the as a result, the truck will not move. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 102, “Transmission Shift Lever Sequence/Starter Interlock/Transmission Braking Effect,” and number 101, “Control and Displays.” A truck that does not move as expected can increase the risk of a crash.

PACCAR will notify owners, and dealers will install a transmission software update, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 2, 2018. Owners may contact Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000 or Peterbilt customer service at 1-940-591-4000. PACCAR’s numbers for this recall is 18KWA and 118-A.

This is a vac trailer I set up about a year ago for hauling shit (literally)... Air operated gate valves controlled in the cab by a toggle switch. Customer also wanted a splash pan & towing point on trailer, built to his specs. I don't have a pic of the air lines coming out of the trailer but I tied everything up with the glad hands & pigtail on the pogo stick, quick connect fitting on air lines for easy disconnect from trailer. Air lines ziptied & protected from back of trailer to the switch in the truck. I always give 100% on everything I do, no cutting corners, no cheap shit, always what the customer wants.
