    Default Not a vehicle, but it has wheels and an engine

    Wasn't sure where to post this, so I went with the "Vehicles," section. My unit loves these DRASH machines and they're all over the unit. When we needed A/C it came in steady and without any change (cold air being pushed out it's vents without stuttering, or change) however we're using it for heat now and I'm noticing that it will blow warm air through it's vents for about 30 seconds, then just blow air (which is typically cold) then back to warm air and repeat the process over and over again. Any idea if this noise box is messed up somehow? I asked a generator mechanic a few days into this field trip, however he got called away before he could give me a good answer.

    sounds more like a cooling system problem than anything else....

    That'd be fantastic to have in a tank. There's no AC just a fan. And half the time the exhaust blows crazy smoke out of the exhaust so we can't use it.

    Lol wish I knew. When we have we have a problem with the heater we do the same thing. "Yo we're cold. Get us a mechanic!" Lol.
    TANKER - That dusty, crusty, grease-covered, dirty, sweaty, bright-eyed, fuzzie-faced,
    haircut-needing, beer-drinking, underrated, over-worked, underpaid,
    oversexed, little shit, who can take a tank and do more battlefield damage in
    ten minutes than a Grunt squad can do all day.

    If you ain't Armor, you ain't shit.
