Long Haul Trucks Should Have a Battery-Powered APU

As a truck driver, you are always trying to save fuel and conserve energy in your truck. Every bit of fuel counts when driving for long periods at a time. What if your truck’s horsepower engine could automatically sense that you no longer need power to the drivetrain and will reduce power to just the cab and sleeper? This is possible if you install a battery-powered APU.

A battery-powered Auxiliary Power Unit is encouraged for driving long trips or across the country. The APU captures energy produced by the truck engine alternator and stores it in an independent battery bank which is powered by a battery. After the engine is shut off, the stored energy can be used to:

  • Keep the engine warm
  • Power 120v devices like televisions, microwaves, and other daily necessities
  • Power A/C and heating throughout your truck


APU Center sells new, used and refurbished auxiliary power units and battery-powered units including their parts. Buy a brand name APU from our eBay store, then come pick up your unit at our store and we’ll install it for you. So if you’re ready to start saving energy and fuel cost, then give us a call today and we can help you find which APU will work best for your truck.
