The NITE system is a compact electrical 3 000 or 3 600 for 4 battery upgraded system . BTU air conditioning system This unit is quality engineered to provide a dependable. means of air conditioning to the cab area without idling the engine The NITE unit is. completely self contained and runs on 12 volts using the greatest deep cycle battery. technology , This no idle air conditioning system is designed to provide cool air to the cab interior in. order to maintain passenger comfort In order to conserve battery power and life this. system is not designed to instantly cool down a hot cab that has been sitting under an. extreme solar load If these kind of conditions occur it is recommended to start the. trucks engine and let the OEM a c system help cool the cab for a few minutes Then. the truck can be shut off and the NITE system will continue to keep the cab cool and the. driver comfortable , The NITE system operates independently off of it s own deep cycle batteries and is.
completely isolated away from the trucks starting batteries The A C is operated by its. own 3 speed control It cycles through 3 blower settings low medium and high On. high speed the system will run for 1 hour and then automatically switch the blower to. medium speed in order to conserve battery power The control has a battery indicator. light so the driver always knows how much charge he has A green light equals full. charge a yellow light equals half charge and a red light means the batteries need to be. recharged The NITE batteries will be fully recharged after about 4 6 hours of driving . 4, NITE INSTALLATION PROCEDURE, GENERAL COMMENTS,AIR CONDITIONER LOCATION. Depending on the type of vehicle the best location for mounting the a c unit will vary . Generally the units are mounted underneath the matress in the sleeper either in the. center compartment or one of the side storage compartments However the unit can. be mounted anywhere else inside the cab of the truck provided you adhere to the. following conditions , Unit must be mounted flat on the floor of the vehicle . Do not mount the unit outside of the vehicle to prevent weather damage and lack of. performance , The condenser air inlet and exhaust must be diverted out underneath the truck with. openings in the floor , For ease of installation make sure the condenser openings do not interfere with any. support structures underneath the floor , Also consider the following when selecting a location .
Ducting, Electrical routing, Condenser inlet exhaust openings. Recirculation air,AIR CONDITIONER MOUNTING, A mounting plate and the hardware are provided with the NITE kit . Choose the air conditioner unit location, Use the provided template to mark and cut out the two rectangles needed for the. condenser openings , The mounting plate gets mounted to the floor then the unit attaches to the mounting. plate , For ease of installation make sure the condenser openings do not interfere with any.
support structures underneath the floor , 5, A C DUCTING INSTALLATION. Ducting kits are application specific Depending on the application some kits are. designed to tie into the OEM ducting and others are universal and supplied with a 4 flex. hose In routing and installing the systems ducting the following criteria must be. observed , Route the ducting with smooth bends and transitions Avoid crushing the duct work. with tools and etc , Be sure all of the treated air is routed above the mattress as close to the driver s. body as possible , Kits are supplied with a T Duct . POWER KIT INSTALLATION BATTERIES ISOLATOR ,BATTERIES.
The NITE system is powered by two 6 volt batteries or 4 for upgraded system running. in series to give you 12 volts The batteries are a sealed deep cycle dry cell battery . They need to be mounted inside the provided battery box es The battery box es are. generally mounted on the frame rail of the truck However if there is no room on the. frame rail the batteries may be mounted inside on of the trucks side storage. compartments Since the batteries are sealed and dry celled there is no hazard in. doing this Things to observe when mounting the battery box . Find a general location on the frame rail usually just behind one of the fuel tanks . Be sure to have at least 4 inches of free space on both sides of the battery box to. allow room for wiring and the rubber latches , Try to locate existing holes or bolts in the frame rail to capture It is difficult to drill a. hole into the frame so this will help ease the installation . 6, SEPARATOR, The separator is mounted in the sleeper under the mattress. It is electrically connected between the truck batteries and the NITE batteries. 7, NITE AIR CONDITIONING AND HEATING SYSTEM, OPERATION MANUAL. CONTROLS, NO IDLE AIR CONDITIONING NO IDLE HEATING. OFF LOW MEDIUM MAX OFF ON TEMPERATURE CONTROL, BATTERY INDICATOR VENTILATOR.
OPERATION NOTES, After 1 hour of operation the MAX A C setting will automatically switch to the. MEDIUM A C setting This feature is done to provide optimum system energy. efficiency With the upgraded 4 battery system the max A C setting remains. constant , The heater ventilation mode is to be used for continuous operation of the heater at a. pre selected temperature setting The temperature control knob has no function. while in ventilation mode , The Green battery light indicates normal operation When the battery light changes. to Yellow it indicates the batteries are at about half charge The light will change to. Red and the system will shut down automatically when the engine needs to be. started in order to recharge the batteries , 8, NITE AIR CONDITIONING AND HEATING SYSTEM. OPERATION NOTES, For optimal comfort Bergstrom recommends to close the curtain between the cab.
and the sleeper when using the NITE A C and heating system . The NITE systems A C is designed to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the. cab without the engine running , The A C unit will not pull down a hot cab that has been sitting in the sun without the. factory A C running To assist the NITE system in cooling down the cab start the. engine and run the factory A C system for a few minutes This will help cool the cab. to a respectable temperature Once the cab is pulled down the NITE system will. maintain a comfortable temperature , The system must be turned off every time the system is not in use or the batteries. May not charge properly After use of the system be sure to turn the control knob to. the off position even if the unit is not running . BATTERIES FUSES, The NITE A C and heating system uses its own batteries A battery separator keeps. the starting batteries from being drawn down , The NITE A C and heating system switches off automatically when batteries charge. level is low , The system must be turned off every time the system is not in use or the batteries.
