The Truma Combi furnace and water heater has caught the eye of Winnebago Industries and will now find its way into the Winnebago Travato 59G and 59K Class B motorhomes.

Truma says its combination of a forced air furnace with a water heater reduces space and weight. As well, Truma boasts that an efficient heat exchanger, along with elements such as tube-in-tube exhaust and intake, allows for over 90 percent efficiency, while the variable speed fan means near silent operation.

“Our goal is to create an environment that optimizes comfort and function,” says Russ Garfin, Winnebago product manager for the Travato. “The Truma Combi helps us achieve that with an incredibly quiet performance.

“With a smaller motorhome you’re dealing with a lot of things to fit in. Having the water heater and furnace combined and the flexibility with the remote intake and exhaust was really key for us.”

The Truma Combi is available in four models: eco, eco plus, comfort, and comfort plus. The eco and comfort models operate on propane and are rated at 14,300 and 20,400 BTU, respectively. The eco plus and comfort plus include an electric option and can operate on propane, electricity, or both. The “plus” models have two 850 watt electrical heating elements at 120 VAC that can heat not only water, but the inside of the vehicle as well.

“These models also have smaller LP tanks. That the Combi can save on LP fuel as well as electricity is a nice feature for our customers,” says Garfin.

The Combi features a CP plus digital control, which includes functions like a boost setting that is designed to heat the RV quickly and warm up the water quickly. A timer function allows the user to preset the furnace and hot water system, ensuring a warm vehicle and hot shower after a day of exploring.

“The Truma Combi is engineered for what RV consumers and OEMs are looking for in the next generation of furnace and water heating options for RVs,” says Gerhard Hundsberger, president and CEO of Truma Corp. “It brings a new level of sophistication that complements what next generation RV models, like Winnebago’s Travato, exude. With its exceptionally efficient use of power sources, the Truma Combi is both environmentally friendly and easy on your wallet. At Truma, we believe we’re paving the way for a better RV experience, with some of the most vital RV functions.”
