The very best thing to do is get a set of guages, monitor the temps and thatll tell you when to shut off. As said above too much idle is bad too. Generally only after extreme towing will you need long cool down times. I dont agree w/it, but ups runs their trucks wide open into the parking lot slams on the break shut it off run in pick up packages at work, star it run off. 2x a dayx how many othe rbuisnesses and they dont have any major problems.
