    Just start a parked re-gen. It'll be lite for a good thirty , forty five minutes. Sleep to the sweet sound of the engine hum.

    The Mack I drive is good for 55 minutes, the problem is...due to the miles, it rarely needs a manual re-gen.:sour:

    Apparently none of these things work on the 2015 freightliners. They say that you can bypass the idle shutdown when the ambient outside temp is above 75 and below 30 degrees by hitting the throttle when the engine shutdown icon starts flashing a couple of times. Then they will idle for driver comfort in adverse conditions. Don't know though. Wouldn't bet too heavily on it.
