    Auxillary power unit. One of those diesel powered generators on trucks that heats and cools while the truck is not running.

    I worked at CFI for a couple years, and thought is was one of the best otr companies I had ever work for. They had the best equipment I have ever drove, you were treated like a person, not a number, they got you home when you asked and the trucks did seventy mph. Which I thought was a boneus coming from a company truck that only did fifty five mph. I worked there for two years before I decided to buy my own truck and become an o/o.(didn't buy though CFI, or some lease program/scam) Thats when I decided to make the move to another company. CFI was good for company drivers, but the eighty five cent per mile just wasn't cutting it for me. Plus the fact that other companies offered better pay rates ,and better fuel incentives, I would have lost my truck if I would have continued on working for CFI. I really didn't want to quit a good company like CFI, but it was either sell the truck, or move on, so I moved on. If I was to go back to being a company driver I would defiantly like to return back to CFI. I still tell people how good of a company CFI is even though I don't work there anymore.
