If your truck has a bunk heater turn it on and go back to sleep when you wake up you will have sweat that crap out of you and think you are in hell.

Well, I guess I fell for the "click bait." I was intrigued by your title, but your remarks weren't even along any line I would have imagined. You did give me a good laugh though. I know exactly what you mean. I had a truck that the bunk heater (Webasto brand) would just about cook your internal organs even when the outside temps were below zero. I've seen some drivers use their bunk heater to cook with.

Indeed, just place that can in front of the heat for a little while. I dont generally use mine (espar) unless it gets in the 30s or lower outside. I think the 40s and 50s is great sleeping temps. When I do use it I set it for about 60, with only the front curtains closed or when i wake up to warm the chill out.
