38 | Overdrive | September 2020 SPOTLIGHT INCAB HEATERS BY DEAN SMALLWOOD Peterbilt no-idle fuel-fired heater Peterbilt offers a factory-installed no-idle fuel-fired heater on its Model 579 and 567 trucks equipped with 44-, 58-, 72- and 80-inch sleepers. The self- contained system includes an underbunk heater, fan-powered circulation and a digital control panel mounted in the sleeper. The system doesn't require a plug-in energy source. It is complemented by a low-voltage disconnect that automatically disconnects non-vital battery loads at low power and automatically reconnects them when the batteries reach a sufficient charge. peterbilt.com Aqua-Hot 12-volt cabin heaters Aqua-Hot's AH-100 and AH-200 cabin heaters are 12-volt DC auxiliary heating systems that come with a rigid mounting bracket designed for 180-degree rotation.
