GM Idle Timer can it be disabled

I camp in my vehicle when I travel for certain events and having just purchased this suburban I found out this weekend that it has an idle timer. Is there any way to disable this feature? I need the vehicle to idle and not shut off every two hours.
In case you are worried, there is a monoxide alarm inside the car etc.

2017 suburban L. It is a thing on all of the new models apparently. They shut down if they are left idling 1 hour without the key and 2 hours if the key is in the vehicle.

Interesting. Seems like a good safety feature. I don't know how to disable.
