    Just idle. Release tractor break. Pull trailer break. You can idle as much as you want then without worrying about temperature cutoff

    I've been disabling regen when idling. Been in 2 truck stops when trucks have caught fire while idling Also one of reasons looking for company with APUs

    Even Schneider as large as they are have changed to upgrade as follows, all new trucks will have factory APUs, Fridges, Satellite Radio/paid Subscription, TVs, and their adding thicker new Memory foam matresses. They said something that their also monitoring on a weekly basis the driver pay. CFI is an okay company, but the many years I been here they have to be forced to loosen those purse strings truth be told.

    That's where I'm at with Robbie D Wood ... 2016 T680 APU Bunk heater factory fridge with a small freezer ... 68 mph top... No safety carp if I coast up to 75 going downhill ... Do they still tell you you'll be fired if they catch it ? I left Conway in 2015 ... Ok working for but I would stay out 4-5 weeks to make the bacon.... I go
    home about every 12-14 days now ...some weeks I'll stay out til third weekend but not often.... I l live in southwest Florida so it's difficult to find regular home time!

    Actually... I've cooked this in my microwave in the truck using a microwave grill. Prob the best steak I've ever had too actually. It's called a rangemate. And it grills your food in the microwave instead of well...microwaving it. The microwave just heats up the grill is all. Granted this was off my inverter. Screenshot_20181101-061535.png

    I have just the solution. I use the same thing for cleaning my table and silverware and Tupperware. It's these Clorox anywhere whipes you find in Walmart. It may be Clorox but it's not dangerous to consume. Even advertised on the label. Safe around children . Pets and food. 15470591540103114328850196308469.jpg
