It also served as a platform for collaboration and fostering positive change for the rest of the year ahead, according to HDA Truck Pride. link hidden, please login to view The week commenced with a charitable “Toss Up For Love and Hope” Cornhole Tournament to raise funds for Kids Matter International, an organization committed to empowering children in the Grapevine area by providing essential items like clothing, shoes, books, and backpacks, along with educational initiatives, fostering hope for a brighter tomorrow.
      Tina Hubbard, president & CEO of HDA Truck Pride, set the tone for the meeting with an inspiring anecdote, “The Story of the Baby Elephant and the Rope.” The narrative illustrates how past experiences or perceived limitations can sometimes hinder progress, emphasizing the importance of breaking free from self-imposed constraints to achieve greater success, Hubbard emphasized.
      “Together, we can ‘Be The Change’ needed to help each other break the ropes that are holding us back. And that is why HDA Truck Pride is committed to transforming the commercial vehicle aftermarket into a community that inspires people and businesses to realize their full potential,” Hubbard said.
      HDA Truck Pride said it “remains at the forefront, launching new resources and programs that not only bolster the network’s competitiveness and expansion within the market but also enhance accessibility and prominence among national fleets. Additionally, this plays a pivotal role in the recruitment and retention of talent across all facets of the business.”
      As the week progressed, enthusiasm for the “Be The Change” mantra prompted action and collaboration between members and suppliers throughout engagement sessions that “delved into critical issues vital to our industry fostering valuable exchange on challenges such as supply chain disruptions, regulatory shifts, the evolving dynamics of talent acquisition and retention, the expansion of online sales channels and effective strategies for digital commerce,” HDA Truck Pride said.
      “With the generous backing of HDA Truck Pride supplier partners, notably platinum supporters – Grote, Bendix, and DriV – alongside the unwavering commitment of the entire HDA Truck Pride member network and industry attendees,” HDA Truck Pride said they rallied together for several philanthropic opportunities over the course of the week. As a result, the HDA Truck Pride community raised $35,000 in support of Kids Matter International, protecting future generations to come.
      “2023 was a pivotal year for our community, full of new engagement opportunities and growth,” said Hubbard, “As we gaze ahead at the evolving landscape of the trucking industry and its challenges, the HDA Truck Pride network stands poised, ready to ‘Be The Change.’ What barriers will we break next?!”

      During HDA Truck Pride’s recent Annual Meeting, attendees raised $35,000 for Kids Matter International.
      link hidden, please login to view Kicking off its 2024 Annual Meeting, HDA Truck Pride hosted a Cornhole Tournament & Welcome Dinner, where teams competed in a friendly yet spirited competition, with all proceeds being donated to Kids Matter International. Throughout the week there were additional opportunities for attendees to contribute to the charity partner and make an impact.  
      “We are honored to partner with Kids Matter International and incredibly proud of our network for their passionate efforts in being able to raise $35,000 for kids in need. The Kids Matter commitment to the Grapevine community deeply resonates with the values we hold within our HDA Truck Pride network. We’re all about communities coming together to help each other and protect future generations. What better way to do that than through some friendly competition?” said HDA Truck Pride President & CEO, Tina Hubbard.
      Founded in 2006, Kids Matter International has been instrumental in providing essential resources and educational opportunities to children in need in the Grapevine, Texas, area. From providing new clothing, shoes, books, and backpacks, to offering educational programs, Kids Matter International empowers children and instills hope for a brighter future, HDA Truck Pride explained.
      For a child who lives in poverty, wearing tattered, worn-out clothes and shoes can negatively impact their self-esteem and confidence. It can also negatively impact their ability to learn when not appropriately dressed for weather conditions. With a donation of $100, Kids Matter International provides up to $350 worth of new clothes and shoes to a child in need, the organization said.
      “This donation will enable us to provide clothing to an additional 350 kids in 2024, resulting in a total value of $122,500 in new merchandise,” expressed Marti Conner, president & CEO of Kids Matter International. “On behalf of the children we serve, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to HDA Truck Pride and the attendees for making a significant difference in the lives of these children.”

      Good car covers are invaluable and can really transform the appearance of a car. Do you have any brands to recommend?

      For now, I use alfa-ways.com and they work very well

      This winter, extreme weather patterns have been disrupting daily routines nationwide. Flooding, snowfall and subzero temperatures all have taken a toll on our roadways and vehicles, leaving many stranded or unable to leave their homes. For those who can make it out to the streets, driving conditions can be hazardous. Having a reliable, fully charged battery is critical during these weather events.
      Several news reports lately have highlighted the negative effects of extreme weather on the growing segment of electric vehicles (EVs). Just as the lead-acid batteries found in conventional automobiles suffer during cold snaps, the battery packs found in EV and hybrid vehicles endure a similar kind of stress. As temperatures drop to freezing and below, EV efficiency (measured in miles per kilowatt-hour, or m/kWh) can be reduced by as much as 34%, shortening effective range. Unfortunately for EV owners, the reduction in range brought about by these cold temperatures means more frequent charging events.
      As temperatures plunge, these charging events can take even longer. EV batteries need to achieve a minimum internal temperature before accepting a charge, so the vehicle prioritizes battery preheating before it begins the actual charging process, which itself is less efficient at low temperatures. These delays can lead to lines at public charging stations, and increased numbers of immobile EVs stranded roadside when batteries go flat before reaching a charging station.
      Our customers with EVs still have the same type of 12-volt auxiliary battery commonly found in ICE-powered vehicles featuring stop-start technology. The BCI groups 400 and LN1 are just two of the popular AGM applications in this category. For ESS or hybrid vehicles, this battery is necessary for powering accessories when the engine is off, while EVs need a 12-volt power source isolated from their high-voltage traction systems. Maintenance-free AGM batteries are most often used in these applications, due to their ability to recharge quickly and a longer service life when compared to other types of lead-acid batteries.
      Lithium-ion batteries (like those used in cordless tools around the shop) are becoming a popular auxiliary option for EVs as well as ICE-powered vehicles. Lithium-ion batteries have a higher energy density than their lead-acid counterparts, so they can pack the same amount of power into a smaller (and lighter) case. Tesla has been using lithium-ion technology for its auxiliary battery in the Model 3, S, X and Y since 2021.
      Intelligent Battery Sensors
      As batteries and charging systems become more advanced, use of an intelligent battery sensor (IBS) is becoming more commonplace. BMW has used battery sensors since 2002, and uniquely requires “registration” to notify the PCM that a new battery has been installed. This update allows the PCM to tailor the battery-management system to the output of the new battery. The sensor now has a reset “baseline” to make decisions on charging voltage, idle speed and other parameters that affect drivability and battery life. In addition to measuring current in and out of the battery, the IBS also may monitor battery state of charge, state of health and even temperature.
      No matter if you’re daily-driving an ICE or an EV, a properly maintained battery and charging system is critical to reliable starting in all kinds of weather. Fortunately, given today’s battery technologies, it’s even easier to maintain and monitor these systems than ever before!
