Is there any way to bulk remove duplicate trailers with existing data?

Answer

Duplicate trailers that have existing records should not be removed because this will delete the DVIRs associated with them and remove the deleted trailers from existing HOS logs. The best course of action is to move all the duplicate trailers into a Group that drivers do not have access to. This will prevent the drivers from viewing and selecting these trailers but will not affect any existing data. Once the appropriate amount of time has passed so the HOS and DVIR logs no longer need to be kept for FMCSA audit purposes, the trailers in that group can be removed.

Additional Notes

The 1803 release no longer allows duplicate trailers to be created.
