Video: How to shift a 10 speed tractor trailer

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!!!
