    There is a newer 2019 International model on our yard. I know the guy that drives it, and it has an inverter built into it. Shop even showed it to me, when it was in the shop. I believe it's 1500 watts? However, if you're new here, doubtful you'll get one of those. Like most companies, you won't get a new truck until you've been here a few. Sometimes it could be months, or years. I didn't get a new truck until I was here for right over a year and a half. It is, what it is. But, what issues I did have with my previous 2 trucks I was fully paid for, unless I was at home....and sometimes I used a 'loaner'.

    Thanks for explaining the hotel thing, that makes total sense. Like I said, I'm not opposed to sleeping in the truck, it should be fine as long as you have a descent mattress and can keep the truck at a suitable temperature for sleeping.

    Well since they don't mind you idling at all, the temp should be easy to regulate. As far as everything else goes, I've already made my priority list for outfitting the truck: Inverter (if TM allows), cooler and either a hot plate or microwave (contingent on the inverter), finally my Helix mattress (best mattress I've owned so far).

    Do any of you get paid for live tank washes and live steaming...the payroll lady is telling me negative but I am pretty sure I saw a tank wash pay on the brochure I was shown during my interview.

    On a side note...I enjoy sleeping in my truck. I have never done the hotel thing on my long layovers. I rather pocket the 10 bucks.

    Currently on a 41 hr layover...and it's awesome. Love the layover pays here. I take online classes so it's just freakin perfect

    That's what I thought...now gotta figure out what sheet to report it on. That o/o rate looks enticing...looking into it. First I gotta find me a good truck.

    On another note I took a nap and woke up to find snow falling. First snow of the year...the fun begins

    and yes, you get get paid hourly for steaming as well! I've had 2 loads, this year that required steaming and got paid for both of them.

    Best thing to ever do, well what I did, go to Walmart and get one of those 'twin foam' sheets for a bed. It makes it nice and comfy for sitting and sleeping. Unless you like to sleep on a rock. Everyone's different! lol

    Ya those things make a big different on a mattress. I find the mattress in the truck decently comfortable. It's not sleeping on clouds but I sleep pretty dammn good on them. But I only weigh about a buck fifty also
