How do I use the ECO-HOT feature in my Travato?

Follow these instructions to reduce the amount of water you need to use getting hot water to the shower and sink faucets. 1.  Heat water in Truma. 2. When it is hot and you are ready to use the fixture turn on the water pump. 3. Turn ECO-HOT valve 1/4 turn (that’s all it will go). 4. Count to 20 or 30.  (The manual says less than that but it’s not enough.) 5. Turn off ECO-HOT. 6. Use fixture. When the ECO-HOT valve is ON hot water from the Truma purges cooled standing water from the main hot water pipes and returns the purged water to the fresh tank for reuse. It will still take a few seconds of running the water for hot water to get from the main hot water pipes to the fixture but in (supposedly) less time and with less wastage than without Eco-Hot. Eco-Hot doesn’t work for all coach hot water fixtures. The G and K Eco-Hot systems don’t behave the same. Read this document for the why: EcoHot Explanation

Which holding tank does my sink and shower drain to and what kind of “trap” does it have?

In the G/GL both the galley and bathroom sinks drain to the Gray tank and both sinks (and the shower) have “waterless” traps.

In the K/KL the galley sink drains to the Gray tank and the bathroom sink drains to the Black tank.

In the K/KL the galley sink (and the shower) have “waterless” traps and the bathroom sink has a “P” trap.

In all Travatos the shower drains to the Gray tank and has a “waterless” trap.

In my K, why does water spray from the shower connection on the wall when I flush the toilet?

You have to turn the shower OFF using the valve on the wall.  If you don’t turn it off there then when you use the toilet or otherwise make the water pump run it will put too much pressure in that line and the water will come out of that connection.

How do I insert/remove the shower hose in the port on the back wall?

Having trouble inserting or removing the shower hose in the port on the back wall?

Usually it’s because the pressure in the line needs to be removed.

In order to use the shower port you MUST be sure that you have relieved all pressure in the water line – that means you shouldn’t be on “city water” and your water pump should be turned off – and, as a final measure, open a faucet inside of the van to relieve any residual pressure. THEN try inserting the quick connect. If you still can’t do it use a wooden pencil with an eraser or the like to apply pressure to the brass cover that you can see through the opening – but be VERY careful and don’t use anything like a screwdriver or you will damage the connection.

Once you have finished using it and are having trouble removing the hose:

Relieve pressure in the line and have the water pump and city water off. Push in on the movable chrome sleeve and pull out on the quick connect.

How can I repair the shower faucet in the 59K?

Group Member Dan Kamada put together these instructions for replacing the cartridge and seals in the K shower faucet.  This was for a 2018 but the same faucet is probably used in other years.
