Can Truma heaters also be operated while I’m driving?

Yes, heating while driving is possible with Truma Combi and VarioHeat heaters.

With Truma S and Trumatic S heaters, operating the heater while driving is possible only with a cowl top, which must be installed freely in the air flow. Truma recommends the cowl tops T-3 or T-2. Otherwise the flame can blow back and cause damage to the heater.

The cowl top must protrude at least 10 cm above roof attachments, such as roof boxes, ski or luggage racks so that the heater works properly.

For heating while driving, Directive UN ECE R 122 for motor homes and caravans specifies a safety shut-off device. The Truma MonoControl CS gas pressure regulation system fulfils this requirement. Throughout Europe, a type-tested LPG heater may be used while driving (according to Directive UN ECE R 122) if the system includes this regulator with an appropriately configured gas installation. National regulations must be observed.
