    Look I have a fridge and a tv with an xbox I run at night.. I can run it don't get me wrong.. but it would be nice to be able to idle it atleast for awhile.. I have tried every trick in the book.. I pressed the yellow valve down, put something on tbe clutch, hell I even put something on the fuel peddle and had it stay just right on 900rpms and still it shuts off.. it irritates me to no end.. any suggestions?? Btw I only spend maybe an hour on the game a night..

    An hour shouldn't run the batteries down enough to notice, unless there is something else wrong.

    Try the red valve.

    You can also press the brake pedal.

    Those two tricks worked for me.

    Try pulling down on the trailer brake valve when the shut down light comes on.

    Pull down on the trailer brake bar on the steering column. You don't have an APU?

    My t660 has unlimited idle, but I don't idle it much. When my cooler, computer, etc use up too much power and the batteries start to get low, this beeper starts going off till put the key in and turn it on.

    Yea I have a friend of mine on the account and his truck # starts with 58 and mine is 59 which is the 2012 model so all he has to do is press the yellow tractor valve in and it idles no problem for him.. I don't need to idle long just enough to get a good charge on the batteries before I go to bed

    I have a 2012 T660. It only idles when the temp is below 29F outside. I run the bunk heater for about 15-20 min every few hours, and sometimes I'll start the truck and set the ignition timer and go back to sleep.
