Truma introduces the 'Combi D - next generation'

Truma has launched the next generation of its “Combi D” models which offer weight savings of up to 3.4 kg plus a variety of ‘optimisations’.

Truma “Combi” heaters have combined a heater and hot water in just one appliance since their market launch in 2007. They have proven a versatile, economical and efficient addition to everyday camping. 

A key advantage of the new ‘Combi D – next generation’ is that it provides weight savings of 3 kg less than its predecessor and the Truma “Combi D (E)” is 3.4 kg less.

The new models also run more economically with very low battery power consumption and reduced diesel consumption. The key to this is in more efficient combustion control, which also leads to an increased service life in the long term. They also enable up to 25% faster heating in mixed mode (diesel + electrical) thanks to a powerful output of 6,900 W (“Combi D 6 E” model).

A second pump (altitude kit) was previously required for longer heater operation at altitudes of up to 3000 m. Depending on the altitude, an integrated pressure sensor now ensures an ideal diesel/air mixture by automatically controlling the combustion air speed.

Control functions via the new Truma iNet X System, which enables intuitive operation and has plenty of additional functions readily available. The fault indicator with simultaneous instructions on how to eradicate issues is extremely practical.

The Combi D – next generation can also be operated with the digital “Truma CP plus” (iNet ready) control panel and “iNet Box” and can be conveniently remote controlled using your smartphone via the Truma App.

On the whole, the optimisations provide greater ease of use and increase energy efficiency, so users hardly need to consider when to refuel their tanks. And in the worst-case scenario, diesel according EN 590 is very widely available across the globe, explains Elmar Ströhle, Technical Product Manager of Heating systems.

The “Combi” variants with additional electrical mode achieve a high level of efficiency with extremely low consumption. The “Combi D 4 E” and “Combi D 6 E” models enable maximum flexibility on your travels. Whether you prefer the convenience of a campsite or a self- sufficient holiday in the wilderness – the energy source can be chosen which best meets your needs. In doing so, you can use the reasonable flat rate and save diesel when the opportunity arises. Other benefits of electrical mode: The “Combi D 4 E” and “Combi D 6 E” run virtually silently and with zero emissions.

The accompanying advertising campaign for “Combi D – next generation” uses camping experiences in classic holiday regions to show the high level of independence available when travelling with the claim: “Setting new standards in heating. The next generation of the Combi D. Economical – for your customised RV experience.”

“This message enables us to present the next generation as a further milestone in Truma’s success story. Indeed, the Combi Diesel variant is the leading 2-in-1 solution on the market for heating and hot water in one appliance with an additional hybrid function. We have further developed this competitive edge with new product characteristics”, says Strategic Product Manager for Heating Systems, Craig Hawthorne.

All Truma “Combi” heaters are produced at the headquarters of Truma Gerätetechnik in Putzbrunn, near Munich.
