    You'll need the Truma blown air version Dawn.

    You might need to put in extra ducting to accommodate it.:Smile:

    Got an electric one only uses 60 watt helps to keep the chill off but ideal for what it is designed for ie warming/drying towels, socks,underwear etc. was told long ago that the truma gizmo was next to useless but never tried one

    I fitted one on a wall in the toilet in the RV cost about £30 off EBay 70w 240v, We use it all the time to dry towels and smalls and it keeps the toilet cubicle nice & toasty :Smile:

    Like you say a complete rip off for an item that is virtually useless, relying on the remnants of warm air that finally reach the washroom, £90 odd all for a bit of hollow tube. this is the one we have in the washroom

    I always used to read people banging on about how good the Alde heating systems is as I was always quite satisfied with the Truma blown air system we had in our Rapido.
    Now that we have Alde in the new van I can appreciate what everybody was raving about. It's really good and the best bit is we have a heated towel rail in the bathroom. Fab!

    Our problem is where to fit the thing. One possibility was on the back of the bathroom door.
