    2017 Cummings in derate mode, dash say to shut engine off, it’s 115 degrees outside, truck center doesn’t open till tomorrow. Will idling the engine to keep ac going damage anything?

    2017... the computer should automatically shut it off when she’s had enough.

    What's a Cummings? That's not what it says on them engine, I guarantee you.

    Get a room, driver. If your boss won't pay for it he ain't worth working for.
