    Newby question, do the windows in the sleeper open? If so do they help to keep it vented?

    ha ha ha...Conway now XPO..have APUs...lmbo...I drive here and your lucky you got a 1500 watt inverter...idling of the big motor is fair though. ..but they are bean counters...will never install APUs...they actually said in a recent voice heard call in from a driver asking about them, that it's cheaper to idle the truck...lol...bean counters ya knows what I mean....

    You just idle away and risk a ticket in states like CA, NY, NJ, PA, MA, and some others. ...shut motor off if you see the white pickup driving around at truck stop in CA...he the man give you a ticket for idling...lol...I've never gotten one but have come close

    Yes, those cameras, wingman, adaptive cruise are really not driver creature comforts. Have a safe one driver. As for me yes I have my own fridge/freezer, microwave, crockpot, etc..because I like my cooking and I can freeze chicken,pork chops,etc , and we'll I'm a good cook...so my inverter get some good use. All in all though rather have apu and inverter interconnected (the way it should be..lol)..but anyways driver enjoy.
