    If I recall correctly, the shop will install bigger inverters, but the 12v outlets are rated at 400w, so in the 2yrs I've been here, I just use a 350w inverter. No high-draw stuff, just a laptop and guitar amp.
    APUs on the few Cascadias in the fleet, no others.

    There's probably about 200 trucks in Arnold's fleet with APUs that we brought over from LinkAmerica. The internationals have the built in HVAC systems with outlets. The majority of white Petes have TK units with 1700 watt inverters. Most of the Penske lease cascadias have them as well.

    Company policy is no hard wired inverters unless medically neccesary.

    The people with APU units hang tight on their truck so getting assigned one will be very slim

    Just went thru orientation in Austell .
    The shop foreman said that inverters are allowed under the following conditions -
    They must be installed by them. They supply the wiring and inline fuses .
    1700 watt max.
    They won't drop what they are doing to put one in , best time to get it done is when truck is in the shop for a P.M. which is every 35,000 miles .
