I took this pic last year, but the return of summer reminded me of it. AC broken? No apu? No problem! 2cd7kgo.jpg

APU:

Auxiliary Power Unit

On tractor trailers, and APU is a small diesel engine that powers a heat and air conditioning unit while charging the truck's main batteries at the same time. This allows the driver to remain comfortable in the cab and have access to electric power without running the main truck engine.

Having an APU helps save money in fuel costs and saves wear and tear on the main engine, though they tend to be expensive to install and maintain. Therefore only a very small percentage of the trucks on the road today come equipped with an APU.

I didn't know Caterpillar makes planes.All I've ever gotten out of Keen was Cat parts, in North Carolina and Texas. I guess that Illinois plant handles the aircraft.
