    Hello, i got a parked old freightliner in Juliet, IL that has a tripac thermoking APU and i was wondering if there's someone to help transferring that APU to my new truck. The old truck needs a new engine and i'm considering selling it as salvage but i need that apu on the new truck. Do you guys know someone who can get this done in Chicago area? Thank you

    shouldn't be too hard..

    Unbolt everything from old truck, bolt apu power onto frame of new truck.

    Mount inside unit into new truck, run new lines, recharge system, give it some diesel and 12v goodness, and you're back in business.

    Couple holes in the cab, some caulk, a little bit of stereo wire and an inline 12v fuse rated for 50amps....6 beer job on the weekend!

    How many hours? How much are you in the truck? Is it worth buying a new one for the new truck?

    You may be able to get the guys in Joplin MO to do it. They sell used ones so might install one if you can take it to them.
