    Hi Alf, I have one on my RMB and I think JJ has one on his Hymer. Mine works fine, although it is not as good as a mains one. They have a separate 25 litre water container and can be used to cool the air or as an extractor unit. Mine pulls about 4 amps so can be used with a good battery bank and solars. Am not so sure that they are available new now.

    No worries pal. Am here at Cwymcuttan with JJ and Frankie at the minute enjoying the scenery and piece and quiet. The Travel-cool is a good bit of kit and I use it quite a lot when on site or when on the road. We don't have dash air and this does make a difference. I must admit I have never put water in the container as its been cold enough without. The great thing about it for us is we can use it when no hookup and when on site with low amp hookups. I have had the mains airos but found I had to run the onboard genny when on the road or if on site as they trip the electrics.
