    Heartland is changing their policy on inverters. The problem has been that with all the Internationals they have had, the wiring and battery was not set up correctly to be handle to handle the inverter loads, and the problems with plug in inverters were not covered under warranty. They have been working with International for quite some time to get that fixed, and now the new ProStars they are getting will have a built-in inverter pre-wired to the battery and covered by warranty. Also, on the Cascadias they are getting, they are going to allow a certain size inverter but I don't know if there is a built-in or not.

    Nothing ground breaking, but I know a few of my friends will be happy to hear about Heartland getting the inverter thing hammered out.

    and more brand new trucks on the yard to trade out the older 2010's. I bet we will see the Heartland CSA score go to single digit within a couple months. (at 10.9 now).
