Re: refrigerator car heaters/reefers

PFE heaters were marked with their name on the heater jacket. I have a
buddy who has a PFE heater in his basement and it is clearly marked as
such. The one that he has is about three feet high and about 1.5 feet
in diameter. Not exactly something that would walk off on it's own!

Do not the heaters belong to the company furnishing the car to the

Yep, Larry has it exactly right, for cases where the car
owner had such equipment. How it worked for URTX or GARX or other
straight leasing companies, I don't know.
