Replacement of the Truma gas outdoor socket and two gas valves
During the course of its quality assurance Truma has established that there may be leaks in the Truma gas outdoor socket and two gas removal valves. This only affects products with a yellow handle cap and the following codes below:
This can cause gas to leak uncontrollably from the affected products. In unfavourable circumstances this can lead to gas deflagration and injuries. We have not heard of such a case yet.
As a manufacturer of premium products, Truma attaches great importance to supplying reliable and safe products. The safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority which is why, to avoid any risk, we and our supplier have decided to replace all affected products. The probability that campers will encounter this fault is very low; nevertheless we would ask them to take the following precautions:
- Ensure that the gas system is immediately turned off. To do this, close the cylinders and/or the gas tank or the external gas supply. If the external gas socket is connected to a separate shut-off valve (e.g. on the so-called valve block), you only need to close this shut-off valve.
- If there is an awning, ensure good ventilation.
- Check the code below the yellow handle cap (picture 1 below). To do this, you may have to turn the ring to read the code. Ensure that there are no ignition sources nearby during the inspection.
- If your product has a code between …01.2016… and …01.2017…, please contact your dealer, a Truma Service Partner or the Truma Service Centre for a free replacement. The products may only be replaced by trained personnel; this process does not take very long. Do not use the gas system again or re-open the separate shut-off valve (e.g. on the so-called valve block) until the parts have been replaced!
- If your product has a different code than those in the table above, the gas system is safe to use again.

You finally arrive at your holiday destination after a long journey. Now all you want to do is get the caravan set up and relax. If you want to position your caravan manually, you will need patience and high levels of physical strength. However, if you have a mover, you can simply manoeuvre your caravan safely into the correct position by remote control.
The benefits of a manoeuvring tool
Gas cylinders have the annoying habit of becoming empty in the middle of the night. You can put a stop to this with the Truma DuoControl CS which automatically switches from the empty operating cylinder to the reserve.
The Truma dual-cylinder gas pressure regulator automatically switches to the reserve cylinder. The integrated crash sensor allows you to operate the gas system safely even when on the road.
With an air conditioning system from Truma you can always have exactly the temperature you want inside your vehicle. It is not only the cooling output that counts, there is another function of the air conditioning system that is equally as important: it can dehumidify the air reliably. The higher the room temperature, the lower the humidity should be, because the body can discharge excess heat much more easily when the room air is dry. A high level of humidity often feels oppressive. The temperature and humidity level are perfectly aligned in all air conditioning systems from Truma.
Even if the weather is tropical outside, you should only cool down your motorhome or caravanmoderately. Experts recommend only cooling the temperature by around six degrees. This even applies when it is 35°C in the shade. If the temperature difference between the inside and the outside is too large, then this can lead to circulatory problems and illness.

Want to turn on the Truma Combi heater whilst you are still on the ski slope so you can return to a warm vehicle? The Truma iNet System makes it possible.

A reliable power supply is imperative if you want to make sure manoeuvring your caravan with the Truma Mover® is possible at any time. In conjunction with the Mover® PowerSet, the Truma SolarSet 23 protects the battery of the Truma Mover® against deep discharging. The set also maintains the voltage in the battery, even when it is overcast outside.
It is important to keep the battery of the Truma Mover® PowerSet fully charged because the SolarSet23 is only suitable for maintaining the charging level. The Truma BC10 charger is ideal for gentle charging.
Deep discharging and its consequences
The battery has deep discharged, if the battery voltage drops below 10.8 Volt, i.e. more capacity has been drawn from the battery than allowed. The battery capacity should not drop below 70 percent; this ensures a long service life that is measured in charging cycles.
The following factors can lead to deep discharging: Continue reading
