Can anyone tell me if I run out of gas can the heating still be run on electric
It certainly can on my Autotrail so I'm sure it can on your van. It is not as efficient as gas but I'm sure it will work.
Someone with better knowledge of your model will be along shortly.
Need to know what sort of heating you have but if its the normal truma combi then yes it will run on elevtricity if you have hookup but your cooker won't work so you may be warm but hungry. Best answer is not to run out of gas.
if your heating is the same as in our sunseeker then no, gas runs the furnace and the 12v electric runs the fans.
Gas run out we are on hook up new van with digital system and it won't heat up
I have just watched a youtube review on the van. It was stated that the Truma fire is both gas and electric...
On My Autotrail we have an electric element in the fire and it can be run on 500/1000/2000 watts.. You maybe need to read up on your manuals or look at what controls you have... As stated the electric is never as fast as gas for heating from cold but good to keep it nice and constant.
Thanks Steve I will have a look on you tube
Friends have a Lifestyle 696 Electric heating is not very effective when it is very cold, think 0 degrees, but it does work. They ran out of gas at Newark oops
