if you are planning to have the computer powered by the truck and have the AE pluged in to the OBD II port, you need to look into a ground isolating inverter.
From AE's website in FAQ's:
→ Can I power my laptop from the vehicle I am testing?
We do not recommend trying to do this even though it is possible with a laptop DC/DC adapter or an AC Inverter connected to the PC power supply . The issue at hand is the design of the power adapter you are trying to use and if it truly is an adapter with an isolated ground circuit. If in doubt or the manufacturer can't tell you, do not use it. The following are two examples of why we do not recommend power adapters: Damaged Connector 1 , Damaged Connector 2.
