    The you can set the ignition timer to keep the truck running up to 30 minutes after shutting the truck off. If its not above/below the outside temp thresholds, then it will still automatically shut off after 5 min.

    I run my truck for about 5-10 minutes every 3-5 hours when I run my bunk heater. Seems to be okay. It's enough to keep the engine warm as well since I don't have a place to plug the block heater into most of the time.

    there is a trick but idk if it will work on 18 wheelers. u can unplug the air temp sensor and stick a resistor (idk what ohm) but if u can get the right one so it reads 30 degrees, it will keep running... ill mess with it this weekend to figure it out

    I take one of those gel heating pouches tnat heat themselves and attach it over the temp sensor under the driver side mirror. Works great. Also if it is just under the upper temp turning on the mirror heaters adds a few degrees.

    On my t660 I don't have to wait for the shutdown timer to come on, I just turn on cruise and hit set. Goes up to 800rpm and will idle as long as I desire. Though our trucks may be programmed differently, and I have an APU so I don't idle much

    like speedemon1084 said if you just pull your trailer brake or push ur brake pedal down it should work i have a 2012 t660 and i just pull the trailer valve and push in my truck brake and it idles as long as i want the only down is u will burn through brake lights faster but its a small price to pay for comfort

    ok there's two tricks that work 100% you can either bump the idle up and it won't shut off or as soon as your wrench light starts flashing on your dash press the clutch in and hold it for 2 seconds and when you let it back out It will idle all night just don't tell too many people about this It pisses companies off lol
