    Idling effects MPG bonus right? Just trying to figure out the best way to keep and cook my own food while taking advantage of maximum bonuses. I guess freezer packs?

    Yea it goes against, all the oc’s have a ice machine and I’m close to one every other day so me and Coleman(my cooler) are usually cool as ice lasts around 4 days for me. I also got a 12v fridge off amazon that works really well. Haven’t tried to cook anything but I normally get a bunch of fruit from sams and some fresh sliced lunch meat..

    I've been looking at these https://www.amazon.com/Pack-Large-C...+for+coolers&qid=1557782972&s=gateway&sr=8-11 to keep fridge cool on downtime. Obviously, I'll need a decent freezing compartment to get the icepacks to the proper temperature, but these look like they can keep a fridge cool and the freezer frozen for a few days.

    That could work I don’t know how long this last vs how long you would be staying out and also could you set it up on the road. My set up is

    Coleman Cooler | Steel-Belted Cooler Keeps Ice Up to 4 Days | 54-Quart Cooler for Camping, Barbecues, Tailgating & Outdoor Activities https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009PURKE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_zXH2CbAWMWEJ5

    Coleman strapped to my front seat

    Smad 12v/110v Fridge Refrigerator Domestic Portable Mini Cooler,1 cu ft https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073H2HKL6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_kZH2CbTZHVCJV

    Fridge fits in the cabinet and works as a 12v plug in but I got a 50$ inverter to use it in its normal mode.

    +5 dollar 6 gallon bucket from Lowe’s for ice..

    I’m usually out a week or 2 and I typically only need ice every 3-4 days.. fridge was plenty of room for the and condiments and stayed cold if I had to turn it off for the night.. but I mainly ate and snacked on fruit
     
    TruckBuddy440 Thanks this.

    Picked up a trailer from Basf with a tire that that had a whole the size of a golf ball in it...

    Nothing more frustrating than being held hostage by the guy that pulled up at the fuel island to take his 30 when there’s a lot of parking spaces
