Make optimum use of your air conditioning system in the caravan

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.

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.

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 following factors can lead to deep discharging: Continue reading
