It's dead if no display is ever seen, so get it in the shop as you wrote. It could be something as simple as a blown fuse or a wire not hooked up. If that's a new truck, I would think everything mechanical under the bunk is there. It should be a quick fix.

Look under your bunk with a flashlight and see if the bunk heater case is empty.

When I got my new Cascadia a few months ago they didn’t have the parts for the bunk heater. They just installed it last month when I brought it in for a PM… Being summer I had no idea.

Welp sure enough looking under the bed and under the metal answered my question. The bunk heater doesn’t work yet, because well it hasn’t been installed lol😂

I would bring it up asap to your DBL. If you have to idle to avoid freezing they will probably work with you until its fixed so it doesn't impact your bonus. It's been a few years since I've driven for Schneider but I'm sure not too much has changed with that. Also curious, Do they have any manual trans in their fleet still or are they going full-auto these days?

That’s funny. My bunk heater went out during the winter and I was able to stay warm because I had a small electric heater that I plugged into my inverter. I still catty that little heater with me on the truck. The heater is a cube about 8” on all dimensions.

Excellent! That takes care of the troubleshooting portion. Hope you get one installed ASAP.
