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. ECO-HOT. 1. Heat water in Truma. 2. When it is hot and you are ready to shower turn on 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. Take shower. It will still take a few seconds of running the water when starting the shower for the hot water to get to the shower head but (supposedly) less time than before. Note that when the ECO-HOT valve is ON what is happening is that the water is cycling through the hot water pipes.
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.
