I have put them in a cooler with hot water bottles or even gallon jugs of hot water. I have ot had any problem. The nuc sounds like it would be a little more trouble. The incubator will work if you have a way to power it in the truck.

I could move them but I want my cells here at my home where I can monitor them. If I move them I will have to drive 20 miles every time I get ready to manipulate them. I am using the cloake method. It is just more convenient to me to have them here.

You could also move your queen mother(s) to where your cell starter(s) are. I keep my mother queens in nucs (so they don't have to work as hard), immediately adjacent to my cell starter/builder/finishers, and even my mating nucs and mating nuc condo's are right there, too.

Michael, I bought some 5 frame nuc queen excluders. Was thinking I could put queen in 5 frame nuc, then excluder, then second box. Could work it like a cloake board and move capped brood down and open brood up. Put an empty frame in bottom when I need eggs for larva.
