    What's the air temp in your truck?

    Checked my thermometer a foot down from the dashboard where the sun doesn't hit it, and it read 121F. Turned just the blower on at high speed and the one stuck in the vent stabilized at 125F.

    My last truck I was in for 2 days during a heat advisory was at those temps. If the company had that trucks ac working right I may have been able to make it, but got let go 'cause I couldn't handle the heat. I've had heat stroke before & without a cooling off place between service calls I'm dead in the water. Seemed like good people, but it's not right to send a man out in that heat all day without an air conditioned van IMHO.

    If the truck a/c doesn't work..neither do I. I didn't sign up to be tortured like a Vietnam POW.

    I went through it for 2 days & they acted like I was less than a human for getting overheated. Stupid crap.

    We had a guy that came to us from Tennessee, down here to the swamp. He was found unconscious beside the condenser. Now there is a reason that people didn't live here before disney came around, and a/c became affordable...Because this **** is hot. 100f and high humidity on a daily basis. What kills me is that the official temperature is measured at the airport..Which is the coolest place in town. The weather man says "it was a little warm today with a high of 96". FU weather schmuck. I measured 103 F @ 43% RH. So yes..you must have a working a/c in that uninsulated metal box that I have to sit in....

    Thumbs up Its even HOT in WI this summer

    Hey I really feel for you guys. The truck I drive only has working A/C when we drive, and that's bad enough. On Wed. we had 100 degrees and high humidity. Good for business, but, I agree... after working in a mobile home all afternoon with no A/C it's too much too have to leave in an even hotter truck.
