Need Help...SSDI Employment Questions

Hello. I need some help........please. I'm filling out my husbands SSDI online aplication. I'm at the Employment section. My husband worked as a outside salesperson and I'm not exactly sure how to answer all of these questions. He drove a car or truck and called on customers working 10 or more hours a day and average driving over 200 miles a day. He walked, stood, sat, climbed, knelt, crawled, stooped, crouched, reached, used both his hands and his fingers, etc. It wants to know how many hours a day he did each of these things, from 0 hours to 8 or more hours. Maybe I'm making this harder on myself than I should. He did all of these things all day long. I'm worried about not filling it out correctly and putting either too much or too little. How should I break it down? Divide the hours into his day or each item individually? Our goal is to try filing the first time by ourselves, and then if he gets denied we'll get an attorney. He had surgery January 8th of this year. Alot of nerve damage was caused during the surgery. He's been on long term disability and the insurance company has told him he needs to apply for SSDI. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
