    I have been accepted into the kllm driving training and I have some questions for current drivers. I was reading that inverters arent allowed and I got wondering about keeping food so I wouldn't have to stop and eat out all the time. I see coolers that plug in but they only cool to 40 below the outside temperature. Does anyone know how to store food without an inverter or if an inverter is allowed. That one policy kind of bugs me if it's true

    I use one of the mentioned coolers for lunch meat yogurt milk and other things it does quite well. I got mine at Walmart for 97 bucks

    How does it do in really hot weather? I can do the cooler and then just get a small freezer for my meat and other frozen items

    Wal-Mart has many different kind of coolers with storage spaces.Also check out the camping dept and buy Tupperware.You'll probably be at one of their terminals often you can heat up your food when you get their.But you should be able to keep cold food like sandwiches,fruits fresh with the right Tupperware.

    Im concerned about keeping meat and other frozen goods in the cooler. Unless im mistaken they only cool to a certain point. I can get a really small 11 quart freezer from dometic for like 350 plus the cooler that would be like 450 invested and i could store meat and other frozen goods in the dometic and the milk, left overs and everything like that in the cooler

    You'll just have to cut back on buying too much.Go shopping every couple days.

    Dominic makes real frig/freezers but they are not cheap or the storage space you get. The electric one from truck stop no so great in the summer and the fans don't last very long but they are cheap. Could also try regular cooler and buy ice every couple days. Not sure f the truck stop still sell ice bags.

    Ok so I remember my uncle telling me that he would stop once or twice a week at a walmart or grocery store. He'd just buy a little meat and cook it that day. I can get a 60 quart dometic or whytner but I think the little 11 quart freezer and a small cooler would work.

    It works fine for refrigeration I am unsure on what your options would be for freezing there are probably some higher end products you could order online that can freeze

    Ive came across a few options. Option 1 is too buy a whytner or dometic for 700 dollars that has both a freezer and a refrigerator compartment with two separate temperatures.
    Option two and the cheapest option buy a small dometic for like 300 to 400 ranging in size from 11 to like 24 quarts. Then the coleman powerchill my uncle uses and he said its like 75 dollars at Walmart and most truckstops have them. Id save close to 200 dollars that way
