    110 VAC plug-in

    On the side of my '06 Freightliner Columbia, is the standard 110 VAC plug-in. Is this plug for charging the onboard batteries or just for the engine block heater...or both?

    This may seem like a fairly silly question, but I am just not sure. I have never had to plug in at night as my tractor has always been kept indoors.

    My new house has over 40 acres and I am now keeping my equipment at home with all the room.

    Unless you specifically have shore power, then all that plug is for is the block heater. Any truck with a shore power system is going to have some kind of labels informing you of it.
