Ha ha, yes it is a super long pivoting tongue, NO I am not hauling sewage LOL. I am hauling landscape rock, sand, gravel and things of that sort. LOL sewage your a comedian. The truck and trailer combo is called a transfer. How you operate those type of trucks is to get it loaded, travel to your delivery location, then unhook, dump the truck, then back up over the tongue butting the trailer, then the box on the trailer transfers into the truck and you pull away and dump the trailer box. When you have both boxes dumped you reverse the process and hook and book.

Yeah things are tough, this guy had a idiot in his truck tearing it up every other day. I use to be a owner operator and I made him feel real good about hiring me. When I did a road test for him he hired me as soon as I hit 10th gear. So one idiots loss is my gain. LOL
