You are correct. I suppose whiney arse thinks he is the only person that has ever driven a truck with air brakes. I have had to sit many times and let the air pressure build up before I could move the truck. Just because of the necessity to over use the brakes in hilly country.

You have no idea what you are talking about monkey. One of your sentences is half right. Everything else in your statement is incorrect. Everything!

Sure, Bluewhiner. Did that air brake switch somehow get manually released? If an airbrake switch is engaged, that truck will not move even if a line blows and looses all pressure. The truck brakes remain locked until near full pressure is regained. Why would I post lies? You are the one that blew it out your arse, not me. You being a lying whiney arse hurts your credibility. The only way you could make the Citizen Times is place a want ad for goats.
I've been a truck driver the better part of twelve years. You probably can't tell me something I don't know about air brakes. On reading your statement here, I can see you also don't have any biz telling a man his biz.
Like primate you also don't have a real understanding of air brake systems, service or emergency.

One thing for sure quar I know how the $h!t works.

This right here is about the dumbest statement you could've made!>>>>

Since you just made quite the idiot out of yourself, I'm done with you for the night.

I do hope another driver weighs in and also points out your idiocy.

Not at all pedophile. That was the first time I ever saw anyone give an air brake refresher that only knew 1/2 of one little thing about air brakes. And then follow it up with a bunch of dribble that didn't
mean squat.

Since I dogged you so bad over this one, I should probably explain. And since you express an interest, I will explain.

When air brakes fail on a downgrade it is almost always due to brakes overheating because of driver error.
Here's why;
1)As one begins the steep downgrade he should already be in the required gear for the grade. One gear too high can lead to problems(you'll only go down too fast one time)
2)mashing too hard on brake
3)using the brakes too much.
4)Some brakes out of adjustment can lead to overheating also
In all of these examples brake failure will be because of overheating. Brakes over heating can and does lead to a runaway truck. When they get hot enough you can stand on the brake and it will do no good. In none of these was low pressure a factor.

Low air;
1)mechanical failure
2)ice in air lines
3)brake chamber froze up
4) something broke leading to a sudden bleedoff of air
5)using brakes a whole lot while at low RPMs(compressor won't keep up)most of us really never have this problem unless trying to maneuver into a real tight dock or parking spot, at which time you take a few seconds to let the air build back up.

Emergency brakes;
When you push in the brake knobs to release parking brakes a few things happen. Now that you have sat and idled up and all air tanks are full. When you push in the knobs air is sent to powerful spring brakes. At 60-80 pounds of pressure your parking brakes release, all the way around. And they will stay that way as long as there's at least 65 or 70lbs of pressure in the system. If driving along and all your air starts bleeding off, at 80 or 90 lbs an alarm starts sounding. At around 70lbs of pressure those park/emergency brakes are gonna pop out. First the trailer wheels will lock up, then the tractor.
But it shouldn't have got that far because you noticed your air pressure dropping and got pulled over. Unless, of course something drastic happened and all air dumped very quickly.

One more thing if somebody has to repeatedly pull over to build brake pressure up(per uni farthead), something is broke. If nothing is broke and the vehicle isn't junk then the driver is a
non-driver. No two ways about it.

If you are on a steep downgrade and you must stop to build up brake pressure whoever you are, you need to stick to driving four wheelers. If air pressure drops that low coming down a steep grade,
pulling over and getting stopped without losing too much air and locking up the brakes is probably nearly impossible.

This doesn't really cover everything Primate but it should clear up
some of your ignorance on the subject. Now you know more about air brakes than a lot of truck drivers.

Expressing your SOBhood again. Brakes don't just let go. They have to be set, in order to let go. What's more some idiots set the trolly brake, then the air bleeds off and trucks start to roll.
Yeah well I publicly got you on the misquoting more than once.
One more thing since I can see I got your ire. When you say>>"I excel in knowlege of everything except sports and that's mainly because I don't like most of them."....The fact that you misspell knowledge hurts your credibility."
All the rest, I won't even bother. It was your usual dumbcrap. What's more, you know you are posting straight up lies coward.
Just wondering, what is a trolly brake?
