Finally done my training and had a horrific time yesterday(ask me and I'll tell) after I finally got my truck. The truck in question is a 2015 Freightliner Cascadia I aptly named "Free"... I want to know if anyone knows how to get this truck into auxiliary mode so that the outlets in the sleeper work?(I miss that good old international I trained in, one button press and all outlets were working)(the heat works tho!!! Thankfully!!!)I see the knob on the floorboard to the left of the driver seat and it's on auxiliary but is there something else I need to do cause none of my outlets work. I even have the drivers/maintenance manual and still can't figure this one out. I'm currently stuck in Maryland until they dispatch me a load heading toward my house in Georgia for my few days of home time, so it's pretty slow without plugs for my Tv and PS4. And solutions??

.

Get your manual out, locate the fuse panels. You will probably find a blown fuse is the cause of your problems. If memory serves me correctly, there is 1 on the firewall in the engine compartment on the driver side. Don't remember where the 2nd one is. Hope this helps.

Have you tried googleing it? I know there's a trick to it because we had to watch training videos on it in case I got a freightshaker but I don't remember it. I think it had something to do with pushing the clutch in and putting the switch up on the shifter? Maybe someone else here has one that can help.

I have the same truck and I wouldn't know how to turn them off. That makes me think it's a fuse or breaker. According to my book try fuses 30 or 31. Breakers 22, 24 or 25. The book I have isn't clear on where these are though, sorry. Hope this helps.

Same here. Mine are on all the time. Same with my trainer's truck his is a 2016, mine is a 2015. I would guess a blown fuse

You have to pull out the glove box to get to the fuses...

Scott O. is right you'll need to check the fuses behind the glove box, 4 screws it's easy to remove
