Peterbilt announced its factory-installed, no-idle fuel-fired heater is now available for Model 579s and 567s equipped with 44-inch sleepers.
With this addition, the system can be spec’d with the full range of Peterbilt sleepers: 44-, 58-, 72- and 80-inch.
According to Peterbilt, the self-contained system requires no plug-in energy sources and is complemented by a Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD) that preserves battery life to maintain adequate starting power. The LVD automatically disconnects non-vital battery loads and will automatically reconnect loads when batteries reach a sufficient charge.
The fuel-fired sleeper heater system includes an under-bunk heater, fan-powered circulation and a digital control panel mounted in the sleeper.
