The rubber lines are actually old school, the coiled plastic is modern. Back in the 60's we didn't have fancy coiled plastic lines. ;)

@Trucker_71 you are right then the bean counters took over and went as cheap as they could where they could do so.

@joschac2 Probably because they are ATS and ETS2 sites, not SCS site. https://americantrucksimulator.com/

@supersobes The big fleets spec sliding 5th wheels for resale value but take the locking pin out so it can't be slid by the driver.

Coiled lines are still common actually. The rubber straight lines are much better and less prone to breaking in the winter time. The coiled lines are just plastic and break in the cold.
I hope that when they go to Canada, that they bring switching between plastic and rubber lines, since rubber lines are much more ubiquitous north of the frontier ;-)

When using a day cab on the SCS Freightliner Cascadia, the fuel tank moves forwards underneath the steps when you add a sideskirt. Searching around, I cannot find any real-world examples of this, not even on Freightliner's website. What happens to the battery box when you put the fuel tanks under the steps anyways?

The battery box goes under the trailer cable stand.

I have a doubt about our Cascadia. Looking in used trucks website, I saw to much Cascadias with 300 gallons tanks, and our Cascadia have a max of 240 gallons to choose... 300G its a 'external' tank accessory?

PS: Sorry if this has already been discussed here and I haven't paid attention before. If so, if anyone can mark me where they have that answer I would be grateful.
