Adding or Removing Trailers

Your organization might use the trailer functionality, so that you can complete separate Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs) for your tractor (also referred to as vehicle) and your trailers.

Adding Trailers

To add one or more trailers so that they are assigned to your vehicle, follow these steps:

 

1.Make sure that you have selected your vehicle or that you have been automatically assigned to a vehicle.
2.From the WorkPlan Home screen tap the Trailers button.

 
3.When you are asked whether you want to add one more trailers, click Add Trailer.
4.A list of trailers is displayed. You can scroll through the list and select the appropriate trailer, or start typing the name of the trailer in the search field to reduce the number of trailers in the list. If your trailer does not show, tap Refresh to update the trailer list (on Android devices) or pull down the screen to refresh (on iOS devices). If you have the appropriate permissions, you can create a new trailer.

 
5.When you have selected your trailer, it shows on the Trailers screen. Tap Add Trailer if you want to add more trailers. Tap Continue if you have finished adding trailers.

 
6.You might need to complete a DVIR, if your trailer has a pre-trip DVIR defined.

When you complete an on-demand DVIR, you can now select any of the trailers that you have added and complete a separate DVIR for each trailer.

If you have any co-drivers, they will see the trailers that you have added in their trailers list.
