Feedback for Truma Heater

By: on 28 June 2019

The install was a little tight but doable. The output of the heater is excellent and warms the Vantage 2.1 Camper very quickly being such a small space. The package was missing the RJ12 connector but I was able to source one from the supplier. Thank you.

No More Cold Mornings In The Van

Super happy with the Truma Vario Eco Gas Heater purchased online from Caravan RV Camping. Had the unit installed before our last trip away and couldn't be happier. The control panel is easy to use and program for an early morning start-up meaning the van is nice and cosy when we wake up. There is a little fan noise but with night mode selected it's not intrusive; definitely quieter than the overhead reverse cycle aircon!

  • How does the exhaust duct of my Truma Vario Heater be installed and what needs to be considered with the exhaust gas system?

    Exhaust ducts should always have a slight incline from the heater towards the cowl, they can not be installed on the annexes side of the RV and have a firm fixing point when installation is complete.

  • Does the Truma Vario LPG heater require maintenance?

    Not to a great extent, However heaters that are fan driven with wheel fins are required to be cleaned with a fine paint brush or vacuum cleaner before the cooler months arrive.

  • Can I install the Truma heater in an outdoor location, Such as an annex or awning?

    No, The Truma Vario is approved only for recreational vehicles. There for installation in an annex or awning is not permitted.

  • Can a Truma heater be installed in a demountable office? or relocatable building?

    No, Truma heaters are not approved for relocatable / demountable homes or offices as they are only approved for the caravanning and recreational vehicle industry.

  • Is the Truma Vario a direct replacement for the Truma E2400?

    Yes, the new Truma Vario Eco Gas Heater is a direct replacement for the Truma E2400. The only difference is the actual physical size of the new unit is a fraction larger and a new LCD display board for easy operation. 

  • Is this model a single outlet? What will I need to make a twin outlet if so?

    This is a single outlet heater but can be adjusted to be a twin outlet with the additional kit - Truma Warm Air Additional Kit.
