Winter grill cover, when? How cold?
I bought a grill cover for this winter. Because the truck runs so cold that sometimes I loose heat in the cab.
Right now, it's about 0-8° celcius here in the morning. I start the truck with the remote start about 10 minutes before leaving, and use the turbo timer in the remote start unit. It runs for 1 minute after I get out.
I noticed lil bit longer warm up time.
How cold it should be outside before I can safely install the cover ?
I will be towing a 20' race enclosed trailer with the car and tires inside for ice racing this winter. But wheater does get under -20°C sometimes. Saw -32°C in my car last winter.
