Default Loud semi idling outside my hotel room?

Or maybe not idling? The thing shuts off every half hour or so then fires back up. What else could it be? Refrigeration? It's damn annoying.

Ya'll should call the front desk and complain about it. Maybe I could go sit in the lobby and point my laptop cam at the front desk and stream it to the interwebz while you harass the night desk dood.

Probley a onboard generator so truck doesn't have to idle all night but still has power for things, either that or a refridge unit on a trailer. I like the phone call idea as long as its done true gl4x4 style.

If it's the truck, the driver is an most likley an idiot. Most newer trucks are set so if the idle for xx amount of time they shut off. The bypass is to turn on the cruise and bump up the RPMs. If it's a APU, which is used for power, heat, AC ect in the truck they are pretty quiet, and shouldn't hear it. If it's a refer trailer.. well... nothing can be done about that.
