  • Initiate a defrost
  • Execute other manufacturer-specific commandsIn addition, users can monitor a range of other vital information quickly and easily without leaving LoadMaster, including:
  • Trailer location information and latest trip information
  • Real-time set point, supply, return, and ambient air temperatures, including multipleprobe product temperatures
  • Real-time engine and operating hours
  • Real-time reefer manufacturer alarms
