Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

      Millennial Farmer : @17:02 Gladhands... Lube man, lube!!! Spray those rubber seals with some silicone spray periodically. It helps them to slide together & seal. Keep a can of spray silicone in the truck. Also, the steel "cam locking plate" on the sticky gladhand may be bent slightly or rusted/pitted which can cause binding when coupling 2 gladhands together. Also, some gladhands have detent balls in them that get frozen up from corrosion. Penetrating oil & tapping on the detent ball(s) with a hammer will sometimes free them up. But, since time is money, sometimes you're better off just replacing the sticky gladhand & move on. It's good to keep a spare pair of new gladhands in the truck, or at least on the parts shelf in your shop.

    I will play the devils advocate... Ethanol burns cleaner for sure... The environment is really where it fails, believe it or not, according to scientists... Their claim is, acres of corn that are now being grown for ethanol leaves a gap in corn , & other crops being grown for food . And these crops are now being imported from cental/south America.. And so, the transport of these crops back to the U.S. leaves a bigger carbon footprint, than whats being saved burning ethanol... Now this is a simple explanation of why "ethanol" has become less popular... There are other reasons...! I can tell you, in Texas , gas stations who do Not have ethanol in their fuels are gaining in popularity by the day.... Its been a boom for farming states , & I doubt you can buy gas in these states without @ least 10% ethanol going into your tank... Im not taking sides, & I do not work in the oil industry. I only know , in part, why some do not want it. On a personal note, I think its done more good maybe than harm . For some yrs now, any vehicle bought in the U.S. is fully equiped to burn ethanol ... And if it helps the farmers, that helps America. Farmers feed the world & thats getting harder to do by the minute... And that is the other big debate in our future... Should we be growing crops to make ethanol , or crops that can feed the human race..

    I haul fuel for a living in a super b. We tried something similar on the 5th wheel on my truck, it lasted 3 months. I go into a lot of small stations and the truck a trailer end up at odd angles. The shear with the angle and weight chewed the disc up. The manufacturer had never seen it happen. Would be interested in how it works out on your rigs.

    Ethanol's low Btu's make for crappy gas mileage. Not sure how "clean" it is since all corn has to be harvested and trucked by fuel burning vehicles. But keep talking trash about oil.

    Batteries? Do they have a corrosion problem? Bad ground somewhere most likely. Burnish ground attachment points and the lugs on the wires. Check to see if both batteries are to same specs. Don't put two different capacity batteries together. Have to replace both at once. Possibly sticky relay if first two don't solve it.

    You say that ethanol isn't subsidized. I say you are wrong. Even if the industry isn't getting money directly from the government, the oil industry is FORCED/MANDATED to put a certain percentage of ethanol into the oil. If that isn't being subsidized then what is? Ethanol blended fuel... good for corn farmers, BAD for everyone else. Ethanol isn't even as clean burning as oil. It also ruins engines, especially the older ones. You really need to stop LYING to people about ethanol.

    First, I really appreciated the insight into your financial operations. I don’t know why, but I find farm finances to be tremendously interesting. Ethanol is mandated by the Federal Government. While a mandate may not be a direct subsidy, it is certainly not the free market. I agree that the Oil and Gas industry should not be subsidized (and I am in the Oil and Gas industry), but Ethanol is not what the free market would choose even with fuel blending mandates.

    We get those plastic plates from our local truck shop $30 but they clip onto your trailer around the king pin rather than the plate Take about 30sec to install and no drilling They're actually a CNH part With a special clip I don't think they'd let you drill the fith wheel plate in Aus But super handy regardless how you go about it Same as you the gravel dust turns the grease to grinding compound and wears everything out super fast

    4:37 - before touching the starter check the voltage drop on the battery (check for both in series if you have two 12V in your truck) when cranking, and also check the cables going to the alternator and to the starter. Check for corrosion on the terminals (especially contact surfaces) and for the voltage drop between the ends. Those are pretty fast and easy to check and If they prove to be good (clean terminals and voltage drop below 0,1V for the cables, battery voltage above 19V for the battery when cranking), it's time to get to the starter itself.
