    On another thread someone said they bought a cab heater and battery charger from Canada Tire. It would sit on the trans hump in your truck and keep the inside warm and keep you battery(ies) topped off. Does anyone know if a product like that is offered in the states? i went to Canada Tires web site and they dont sell it online.

    Somebody from Alaska or maybe Montana or such should be able to help you out with this.

    The cab heater I have is just a cheap 120 volt heater from Wal-Mart but it keeps the windows clear when it is outside in all kinds of weather. Those car specific heaters are very expensive. The equivalent of what I have was about $80 rather than the $17 I paid. Trickle chargers are not very expensive either. Your local parts store should be able to fix you up on that.
