Electric APU | Battery-Based No Idle Systems for Sleeper Trucks and Day Cabs

Arctic Breeze Truck AC: 12V/DC air conditioning keeps cabs cool without wasting fuel

And there are others out there.
. . . . and think about how much smaller the sleeper cab of a truck is compared to a Class A coach.

One of them is an 8000 BTU unit. About half the size of a normal RV roof unit.

It requires 4 gp31AGM batteries, on top of what you have.

They recommend a 200amp alternator for recharging.

If you use 6 or more batteries they recommend a 250 amp externally regulated 3 stage alternator.
