NITE Day Cab Battery Specifications
Required for NITE Day Cab Warranty Considerations
The NITE Day Cab air-conditioning system is an all ELECTRIC, 12 VDC system, designed to maintain cabin comfort for 2 to 4 hours without requiring your engine to idle.
The NITE unit requires 1-2 batteries that meet the following specifications:
- AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat)
- Deep Cycle
- Group 27 or Group 31
The newer type of sealed non-spillable, maintenance-free battery uses "Absorbed Glass Mats,” or AGM separators between the plates. This is a very fine fiber Boron Silicate glass mat. These type of batteries have advantages over gelled and can take much more abuse. AGM Battery will not leak acid if broken.
- NITE battery system requirements:
- 1-2 batteries required or 110 (minimum) amp hour capacity
- Check wiring diagram for installation
- Voltage – 12Vdc
- 12 volt batteries must have a minimum of 105 amp hour rating
Use of any non-approved Battery Technology will automatically void any warranty and may impede the performance of your NITE system.
The NITE system batteries recharge in approximately 2 to 3 hours while your truck is running down the road.
Please note that the stock alternator will have to be replaced with an alternator with 30 amps additional charging capacity.
