Why may I ask would you leave it idle? is there a reason you can not just plug it in and shut it off. No diesel engine is made to IDLE. You might want to look at a Gas Motor. Just a thought!
I agree with not idling a newer diesel truck b/c of the DPF, but thats the only reason... Why would you recommend a gas motor if your going ot let it idle? They burn more fuel at idle and spark plugs don't like it. You will not hurt a diesel by letting it idle. (save for the DPF and regeneration)
