Generator Model Auxiliary Power Unit By RigMaster Power
*Must have unit installed by RigMaster Authorized Dealer in order to keep warranty valid
Do you want to save money on gas? It is estimated that idling burns 5 percent of all fuel used in US, amounting to about 1.2 billion gallons. With this APU you will not only save money but also get ahead of growing anti-idling regulations!
A number of factors are creating a growing need for Auxiliary Power Units (APU) on sleeper cab tractors. Chief among them: fuel prices keep rising and are a significant portion of the operating cost for fleets and owner operators; anti-idle laws that prohibit truck idling - done to keep drivers comfortable, engines warm, and batteries charged - are growing in coverage and enforcement, and continuing environmental concerns over diesel emissions. A typical over-the-road tractor will idle approximately 2,400 hours a year. Approximately 2.3 million diesel trucks are in the US, of which some 600,000 are equipped with sleeper cabs. These are ideal candidates for APUs to handle complete climate control, as well as perform other functions, including providing on board power.

APU Warranty Coverage
It is the responsibility of the installer and the Owner to ensure that ALL RigMaster APU components are
in proper working order at the time of installation. The manufacturer is not responsible for failed
components that are a result of improper installation. In the event the Owner/Fleet wishes to install
the APU themselves, it is the Dealer’s responsibility to provide installation instructions to the
Owner/Fleet with the sale of the APU. In order to validate your RigMaster warranty, the installation
must be inspected, certified, and the charging of the air conditioning system with Freon by an
authorized RigMaster Dealer within 30 days of purchase. The cost of inspecting, certifying, and
charging of air conditioning system with Freon of any RigMaster APU is at the Owner’s expense, and if
validated, warranty coverage begins from the date of PURCHASE and NOT the date of certification.
Failure to follow these procedures will disallow APU units from RigMaster Power’s standard warranty.
Parts Warranty Coverage
All RigMaster parts sold separately are covered by a “6 Month Part Only” Warranty when they are
installed by a RigMaster Dealer, which covers the price of the part should it fail due to defect. The
installing dealer provides the customer with an invoice showing the “part serial number”. This invoice
can be presented to any RigMaster Dealer within 6 months of the installation to initiate a “Parts
Warranty Claim”. This claim covers the cost of a “part only” if it is found to have failed due to “defect”.
Neither labor nor any other parts relating to the replacement of the failed part are covered under the “6
Month Part Only” Warranty.
