You might want to put a note on the windshield saying "Dog is OK – A/C is on." An Inverter (12V to 110V) 2000W 65A is included with the Standard Equipment Package. Also be sure that your gas tank is not low, leave a couple of windows down a little and lock the doors. Note: in some states it is illegal to leave the engine running in an unoccupied vehicle.
Various paging systems are available with a temperature sensor and high and low settings that you determine. When the temperature reaches one of these settings, an automatic two-way pager will alert you by audio and/or a vibrator. No service is required. Portable. Long-range antenna optional. Other options are available such as engine start, turn on A/C, attic fan and engine heater.
