Re: Leaving Truck in the Cold For A Month

A friend of mine says that's a horrible mistake, while another says that one month in the cold and snow won't be a big deal (it might snow maybe 1 or 2 times while I'm gone.)

I'm torn. It would be difficult for me to bring my truck with me, at the same time I don't want to damage my truck. Anyone who could help me would be a hero.



I didn't think it got that cold in AZ. Here in MN at times it doesn't get above 0 for a while and our vehicals survive. We make sure our batteries are up to par and if it gets really cold we plug in the engine heater and things are running again. (Yes that is what that plug is for that you may of seen hanging out of some cars here in MN)

I just wanted to post about MN here.

Like the others have said. You shouldn't have any trouble.
