Member wins RigMaster APU at truck show

| 4/15/2004

OOIDA member James “Jack” Norton of Denver, NC, won a new RigMaster Power auxiliary power unit in Rigmaster’s drawing held at the Mid-America Trucking Show last month.

The RigMaster Power unit provides 20,000 Btu of air conditioning and 12,000 Btu of heat. RigMaster also offers 4,000 watts of 110-volt power for electrical appliances and the truck’s block heater and a 40-amp DC alternator that charges the truck’s batteries. It is independent from the truck’s coolant and freon systems.

Norton’s name was randomly drawn from more than 4,000 ballots collected during the three days at MATS. The new unit will be installed on Norton’s 1996 Peterbilt 379.
