Hey Vic, yes the truck can be locked and started but you’d need to have a key in the ignition for the AC to work. It might be tempting for a thief who sees a truck running with a key... smash and go. But if one has a pit bull with a spike collar I guess the thief would pass it up.!

Huh, my remote starter for the truck does all that.  Nothing fancy there.  Or am I missing something?

 How long will it run on the remote starter?  

My 2020 F150 times out in 15mins IIRC and you can hit it once more for another 15 but that is it, again, IIRC.

 

Never had remote start in any of the vehicles I built a system for.  96 F350 11 FJCruiser 15 and 18 Transit

 

Haven't yet made one for the F150- may not, if I can extend remote start run time to at least an hour.

It will run forever.  Made for Cold northern winters where the old practice was to not shut off diesels.

Not from me... mine was in the truck when I bought it.  It has great range... like 6 blocks or more?

Make sure you dog is allowed to go where you are going. Many parks, National Forests, Monuments, State Parks, etc have restrictions on pets. Best to look up where you are going and read the restrictions, if any. Death Valley is quite restrictive.

Six pages of people talking about their pets and no photos? 

 

My tip: if you have a dog like my current doodle, don't let him wander through the fields with you, unless you like spending hours pulling burrs out of his hair. Never had that problem with furry dogs, only the hairy ones.
