Santa Fe Springs (January 26, 2011) The January issue of Qwik Tech Tips discusses measuring techniques to determine the proper coiled electrical cable length for tractor/trailer combinations. Length is one of the most important issues in a coiled electrical cable- if it's too short, it could pull out at the average turn and if it's too long it can drag on the deckplate, Qwik Tech Tips offers four quick steps fleets can take to make sure they purchase and use the best length for their own operation.
