    Oh no you’re not wrong , every driver who goes to sleep in a truck stop should fully expect to be poisoned and die in their sleep.
    But hey that’s trucking everyone knows that sleeping In a truck stop carries great risk.
    I will admit the mounting of his 1970s homelite generator With a rusted off muffler was perfection.
    From the ratchet straps holding it up to the bottom of the trailer to the leaking plastic fuel can with a hole drilled in it for a fuel tank it was an engineering marvel to behold.

    Yes, it's a 12,000 BTU Senville Leto.

    The generator is a Predator from Harbor Freight. It goes 12 to 15 hours on 2.5 gallons but it's the last Chinese made generator I will ever buy.

    Honda makes two inverter generators in North Carolina—the EB2800i and the EG2800i. When this one dies, that will be the replacement.

    Where do you get one of these installed? I need a new APU but I guess this must be cheaper. I'll get a detector.
