Thermo King will hold a Truck Stop Day event at three separate U.S. locations on Wednesday, Nov. 30 to increase awareness of Thermo King’s TriPac Auxiliary Heating/Cooling Temperature Management System. The events will take place at Petro Stopping Centers in Kingman, Ariz. and Fargo, N.D., as well as the Flying J truck stop in Dade City, Fla.

“It’s important for customers to know all of their options when it comes to idle reduction technology,” says Doug Lenz, director of transport product management for Minneapolis-based Thermo King. “We want to give drivers the opportunity to experience the TriPac’s technology firsthand, and truck stops are the obvious choice.”

The TriPac system is designed to allow drivers to reduce unnecessary truck engine idling, conserve diesel fuel and save money while providing truck engine preheating, battery charging, truck cab sleeper compartment climate control and electric power.

At each event, truck drivers will have the opportunity to see Thermo King’s TriPac system in action, as each location will feature a demonstration TriPac unit. Local Thermo King dealers as well as Thermo King corporate district sales managers will be available to answer questions and lead the demonstrations. Visitors participating in the demonstration will receive coupons worth up to $325 in discounts with the purchase of a TriPac unit. Each location also will have complimentary giveaways.

“We’re definitely excited to have this opportunity to build customer relationships and get valuable feedback from drivers,” Lenz says. “We believe the TriPac is an excellent option for truck drivers to consider, and look forward to sharing its benefits with customers.”
