Just to let you all know the danger of the heat .

Been working in a shop on equipment , been seeing and hearing a lot of A C noting working , And engine temp concerns On hills on trucks.

Here's the deal . Been fixing as many A C's as we can get , we got a temp gun point it at something it give you the temp right then and there .

Yesterday afternoon a Mack truck door during the playing of the gun , 112 , tire 118 , frame 101 , plastic tail light 99 ,rubber floor mate 109 shaded , sun shin through wind shield on seat, dash ( both door glass down ) 163.2 .

What is a good reading on the inside temp of that truck . Don't leave small children or elder people or animals in these cars and trucks .

Thats HOTTTTTTTT We got cooling centers all over for people to goto. This heat is real bad and I feel for people that are working outside or doing road construction. Having ac in a truck sure helps but never thought it would get to 160+ degrees :shock:

That 163 was parked with front of truck to the west sun beating through windshield .
Probably not near as bad if moving . But Bad enough he looked drained .
