Awesome they run you hard. Today I drove 665 miles. They put you in a either a peterbuilt or a kw with apus , fridge and 1500 inverter.

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.

DANG nice equipment, Mike ~! Pay must be pretty good for you to jump over, as well. Keep us in the loop! I'm already fond of your 'Pete, haha! (I'd post that 'stop starin' meme .. but PJ already did (methinks) awhile back, hahaha! He owns that one, bet his ears are ringing!)

Where all do you haul to & from? Mostly live? Drop & Hooks? All reefer? Inquiring minds.. ya know! Not much about Freymiller on TT . . . I'm the 'curious' wife person, after being 'cooped up' all these years, without my OWN ride yet. . . LoL~!

No matter . . . carry on, be safe, and be happy !!

~ Anne ~

ps: If and when you have time, and make your bed, (lol~!) some inside pix of the new Pete would be cool. . . and I'm sure others share my sentiment, LoL!

Be safe, man..carry on! Happy for you, if this is what works for ya!

embarrassed.gif Lol Anne, I don’t get near the starring that my gf does. I laugh when I see drivers looking at her in disbelief when she drives up. Pretty sexist in my opinion. She drives it just as good as I do!!!

Nothing special about Oregon, anyway.....LoL! Heck, I'd try a NYC for an extra $250 .... at least 'once!'

Gotta admit, PJ . . . she (the g/f) 'is' a looker ~! ('Course, as is the ride! .. ie: truck! haha!) ;) Heck, maybe when I drove 'this' ole gal ... the guys were looking at me, and NOT the truck ?!?!? (At least we aren't in the 'market' for one as of late, thank Gawd!)

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

What do I mean? On Duty and Driving all come off the 8 Day, 70 Hour clock. Once that time is used, it's not coming back.
