Because the ECM will not support two ELDs and only one driver can be logged into the ELD, the driver in the front cab must log into the ELD and make an annotation that he or she is operating with a tillerman. The tillerman has the option of manually adding their hours of service to the ELD under their ELD driver account or keep the previous 7 days of their records of duty status in their possession for roadside inspections. The same options apply to the motor carrier maintaining the tillerman’s records of duty status for 6 months.
