EXCELLANT UNITBy: RON TROUGHTON on 23 April 2019I purchased and installed the Truma AC unit under the double bed in our 16' Avan "The Oscar". The unit came with all instructions and a floor cut out template which was very handy. You need to ensure that the inlet air, outlet air and both condensate drain holes are clear of any metal framework, wiring ,gas or water pipes underneath before you cut the holes in the floor. I had to position the unit to clear a floor support bar under the caravan. I cut the internal inlet air grill on one side of the under bed cupboard and had 2 conditioned air exhausts at the front of the bed and one on the opposite side to the inlet air grill. Lucky I could easily hide the power connections under the bed where the caravan 240v control is and ran the AC control cable internally up into the side of another tall cupboard. The unit works very well. It is not noisy as I fixed a 3mm yoga mat between the unit and the floor just in case. The remote control works well, is easy to use and easy to pair with the wall sensor. Very happy as it is a quality unit.
Q) I have a 22 foot off road full height caravan and looking for a under bunk reverse cycle air conditioner, will the Truma Saphir suit my requirements?
A) Yes, the Truma Saphir will comfortably heat and cool a 22-foot caravan as it has a internal cooling and heating capacity up to 6.5 metres.
Q) We are wanting to install an air conditioner in our pop top caravan and was wondering if a roof top or under bunk unit is better for our pop top application?
A) Great question, you can install either a roof top mount or under bunk air conditioner although there are a few pros and cons of each unit in your application. Firstly, the roof top installation will be more time laborious as a hole has to be cut in the roof, 240-volt power has to be run and a H - frame will more than likely be required for structure and rigidity. There for the labour factor will be higher than having a under bunk unit installed and will be costiler on the hip pocket. Installing a under bunk unit is more cost effective all though you will lose a minimal amount of space as the under bunk is installed under your bed or dinette seating arrangement, under bunk units are usually a little bit more expensive than roof top units so it will all boil down to the owner's personal preference.
Q) I've got a Truma saphir installed in my caravan which was the best decision I've made since owning the caravan, it serves its purpose in every way possible in high and low ambient temperatures and could not be happier. Just wanting some advice on what size generator is suitable to run this unit?
A) That's great to hear, the Truma Saphir is a superior unit and always gets the job done efficiently and economically. The required generator to start and run the Saphir is a Briggs and Stratton 3kva Invertor Generator which is compatible with all our Rooftop and Under Bunk Air Conditioning Range.
Q) We have a small Jayco caravan and are thinking of installing the saphir, we are a family of five and are just concerned because of limited space. The unit will have to be installed under the dinette, in our arrangement our youngest sleeps right on top of where we are wanting to install the unit, will the noise level of operation be too loud for someone to get to sleep?
A) No, as the Truma Saphir is the quietest under bunk air conditioner on the market and even with the fan on high and the unit working at its maximum capacity it's still whisper quiet and you would not even know the unit is in operation. So, to answer your question yes it will be fine to install the Truma Saphir in your required position.
