Kohler, Dometic team up to provide APU for trucks

Kohler Power Systems has selected Dometic Environmental Corp as the supplier of air-conditioning components for its new auxiliary power unit (APU).

Kohler has introduced an integrated package, consisting of a 5-kilowatt siderail-mounted air-cooled diesel genset and a Dometic-supplied 115-volt air-conditioning and heating system.

The Kohler 5-kw APU is designed to minimize intrusion into the truck's existing systems. This unit measures 27" × 26" × 23" and weighs less than 350 pounds. The unit's direct-drive alternator design provides for higher reliability and lower maintenance. The oil-service interval is 500 hours.

Dometic's auxiliary HVAC system, offered in 10,000- or 14,000-Btu capacities, consists of an external condensing unit and a low-profile compressor/evaporator/blower unit that mounts inside the sleeper. The two units are connected by flexible refrigerant lines that are precharged at the factory for easy hookup without special tools.
