In June of 2006 I purchased a diesel truck APU to provide eclectric power, heat and airconditioning for my tractor trailer so that I would not have to idle my tracotr trailer while parked and to meet anti idle regulations in many states. Since the beging of my purchase I have had problems with the unit. First after the installation the unit would not work, PowerTech provided and new electronic control box to fix the problem, three months later the heat system stopped working, PowerTech that I contact the maker of the HVAC unit they sold me with their diesel generator (they sold me a complete package they put together), a few months later the generator stopped working,,PowerTech advised me to open the electroinic control box and place a jumper wire between 2 terminals to slove the problem, I did so but the fix made the Auto start function that would automatically start the generator when the truck batteries got low to not work anymore.
I called PowerTech's service departmeant several times and sent several emails and never got any return calls or any contact from PowerTech to help me solve the problems I had with their Truck APU. A short time later the unit stopped working on hot days when outside temperatures rose above 95 degrees. I then sent called and left messages with PowerTech's service department with no results,,I then sent emails to all email addresses listed on their website and finally got an email back and was contacted by their service department. I was told that they knew of the problem and that I should remove the electronic control box and put a spacer between the control box and the mounting so more air would circulate between the control box and where it was mounted. It did not slove the problem. Next the encloure door fell off. I caintacted PowerTech again and they did send me a replacement door. After 20 months of problems when temperatures again got about 95 degrees and the unit would stop working I tried to cantact PowerTech again several times by phone and email I got no results.
I paid $6500 for the PowerTech APU and it came with a 3 year warranty and I can not get powertech to solve my problems . I do not reccommend their product.
