This is after our shop added some stuff. Tvs satelite fridge....etc.

They are still missing fender mirrors and the suspension gauge as well and i think that fifth wheel is different but im a noob so ive only dealt with mine. Also missing an auto greaser. But it has an Apu.... Which i dont know much about either.

My point was i need my suspension gauge!

APU:

Auxiliary Power Unit

On tractor trailers, and APU is a small diesel engine that powers a heat and air conditioning unit while charging the truck's main batteries at the same time. This allows the driver to remain comfortable in the cab and have access to electric power without running the main truck engine.

Having an APU helps save money in fuel costs and saves wear and tear on the main engine, though they tend to be expensive to install and maintain. Therefore only a very small percentage of the trucks on the road today come equipped with an APU.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but it sounds like you are saying your trucks come with tv and fridge? If so that's a really nice perk! Are you charged for that?

They sure do! And no we are not charged. Also come with a direct tv subscription and satelite radio at no charge. Im a little nervous ill get one of those new ones when its time to upgrade i have a 2017 with 418k miles but ive heard they dont get you a new truck until your 500k plus so i think ill avoid that batch of 25 or so.

Also is it odd there are no load lock bars? I just noticed that.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
