    I guess you know what I mean, if not here

    Do many people have these fitted ? and any feedback on them ?

    Wondering if it really is safe to drive with the gas supply on....

    Driving these days is not that safe,however it's more enjoyable when you and your passengers are nice and warm!

    I suppose they must be fit for purpose if they sell them .The question is ,do we really need everything they try to sell us ?

    yes it is.....they have a built in impact sensor set to around 3.5g which shuts off the gas in an accident and a restricter valve if the gas hose or regulator is ruptured/sheared to stop a sudden outrush of gas if the impact sensor isnt triggered.

    Buy the newer type with an added filter, saves a lot of heartache in the long run our van was fitted with this from new but four years on we are now left with a Gaslow regulator after the Truma gunged up, when my ship comes in will definitely be having another fitted and travel in comfort. :Angry::Angry::Angry:

    Installed a Truma Monocontrol CS today. Easy install and looks very well made indeed. I went for the ceiling/horizontal mounted version.

    Be aware that you also need to buy a special Truma hose connection from the unit to the bottle, this is another £25.

    There is also a duo version that switches automatically when bottle 1 is empty, but that's more money again....
