Frigette APU ’s Are Designed A s
“ Stand-Alone” For Good Reason!

Experience and years of feedback from all corners of the trucking industry
helped shape the design concept of our anti-idle system. This is what the term
“stand-alone” means. Everyone agrees that the trucking industry is hard on
equipment. Sometimes things can go wrong as a result of many factors. The last
thing anyone wants is for the truck to be incapacitated as a result of an
aftermarket product being “Tied-In” to OEM systems causing a problem that
could have been avoided.
For this reason, many people agree that a non-integrated system has terrific
appeal. Our many years of experience in the APU market have reinforced
Frigette’s unwavering commitment to keep this common sense philosophy
because it is a major benefit es pec ia lly when O E M wa r r a nties a r e c onc er ned!
Coolant: Frigette systems DO NOT integrate into main truck engines. This poses
the risk of coolant leaking due to loose clamps, improper installation, or
punctured water lines. Shut off valves, and longer labor times are part of this
process. Instead, Frigette APU’s make 120V electricity, and can easily operate
block heaters for quick, easy and effective solutions in winter months.
HVAC: Frigette systems DO NOT integrate into OEM HVAC systems. Period.
This eliminates many problems resulting from dual compressors, lengthy
installation customization times, poor airflow, and expensive re-do’s.
Frigette has its own dedicated air handling module under the bunk
supplemented with its own duct system. NO tie-in to the factory duct system
because this has proven to be ineffective.

OEM Main Wiring:
We leave the main wiring of the truck alone- this only invites
major problems if something is shorted, miswired or incorrectly done. Frigette
APU’s will use a small amount of truck battery power for starting, and offers its
own battery charger for charging the truck battery bank.

Exhaust:
Frigette APU’s DO NOT tie into truck exhaust pipes, mufflers or DPF
systems. This avoids unnecessary and certain failures resulting from heat,
carbon, flex pipe, or connection fittings. Tampering with DPF’s is a no-no!!
Frigette APU’s come with their very own dedicated exhaust muffler for a reason.
As you can now appreciate, the Frigette purpose and intent of its engineering
reduces the risks while still offering all the benefits of an anti-idle system.

I bought this unit used from a friend who stated, it ran when he removed it from his truck. Once installed the problems started. Everytime something failed, I would repair it then something else failed. Went a entire year without it running. Finally after alot of money invested in parts, the unit has been running. The bad is the company went belly up, so parts are getting harder to find. I personally service and repair this unit myself and find it very easy to do since I have the original paperwork.

I have also been spending a lot of money keeping this unit running along with the aggravation of having to go to Ft. Worth for service since I have no paperwork/manuals. I would not recommend this unit to anyone.
