Perfecting the pairing: Designing the truck-trailer combo

    Some of us were doing this 10 years ago. 4 extra truck battery’s under the bunk, and a 2500 watt inverter in the sleeper did a very good job maintaining the temperature as long as it was between 30 and 90 degrees. Got a little warm in the dead of summer, but we saved a lot of fuel shutting down all but 10 or 12 nights a year. Slept better and had tv and video games too. No worry about running the starting batteries dead with a fridge or xbox ether. Small free standing air conditioner behind the passenger seat, two 12 volt heaters in the bunk. A webasto would have been even better, but considering I only had 400 bucks in the whole system, that was not an option.

    Rutherford is a joke… Nothing but a snake oil salesman.

    Rutherford is a sales man but I have airtabs, fass, fleet air filter, ops, straight pipe weed burner, tst tpms. I get over 9 mpg with my flatbed. Yes you can get a straight pipes cheeper than a p power muffler, yes fass stole his fauther design on the Airdog and I caught him lieing at the cmc live.
