    You need a Sine Wave inverter for the CPAP. So that along with idling or an APU are your choices.

    Our trucks have inverters, but I'm not sure if they are sine wave.

    Idling is controlled by the ambient temperature... for the most part.
    But if you rely on a CPAP, which relies on a charged battery, the shop can obviously change those settings if needed.

    And still... you are not getting any younger.
    Give it a few years and you will start to feel it more and more.

    FYI, where I work we make a guaranteed $1650/wk not dependent on miles. $1350 if you go home on the weekends. Dry van. All 48 as far as I can tell. Full benefits, disability, sign on bonus, company matching 401k, paid holidays, paid DOT inspections & sign-on bonus. Trucks 1 to 2 years old. My truck didn't come with much but I put an inverter in & run my fridge, microwave, laptop & the light for my semi-professional manicure off of it. I have HBO, Netflix, Prime, Tubi, Discovery+... Company is great about getting me home whenever I want to be there for as long as I want to be there. I make $84k/y r because I do go home...sometimes.

    Swift is for people that can’t get a good job at a good company. There are so many other great companies to waste your time with not so Swift.

    @Moosetek13 has been with Swift 10+ years. Dollars to donuts, he is an excellent driver with an excellent record and an excellent reputation.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!
