The Sleeping Well Arctic Plus is the latest generation of the Sleeping Well battery-powered auxiliary air-conditioning system for commercial trucks. It is sold as a complete aftermarket installation kit that fits almost any sleeper.
The all-electric A/C system maintains a cool, comfortable cab and sleeper environment while the truck engine is turned off, burning no fuel and producing no emissions. Improvements include an all-12-volt system with twin compressors; upgraded system diagnostics; and a wireless remote control with an "Option" button to reduce compressor speed and extend system operating time and battery life.
Maximum power consumption is 55 amp/hr, a 26% reduction compared to the previous version.
The Sleeping Well Arctic Plus 2000 also has a shore power option, using 120V AC to provide indefinite cooling without idling or use of onboard batteries. The shore-power-equipped unit is eligible for rebates up to $1,600 under the Shorepower Truck Electrification Project (STEP) administered by the U.S. Dept. of Energy and Cascade Sierra Solutions.
The Arctic 2000 Plus provides up to 6,150 Btu/hr of cooling and can maintain a comfortable temperature inside the vehicle for 10 to 12 hours in typical use. It's a three-piece system: an evaporator (mounts on the inside of the sleeper); low-profile condenser (mounts on the exterior of the sleeper); and compact compressor unit. Total weight is approximately 80 pounds.
The Arctic 2000 Plus is powered by four dedicated auxiliary Group 31 AGM batteries (not included) with a standard low-voltage cutout.
