Dear, please tell me how to understand from the description, what heating system is in dachlüftung camper: liquid or air? Here they write in the description: "central heat", how should this be understood? As I understand it, if it says "Truma", then it is air?

Truma makes tankless water heaters. The main heating systems in RVs are LP/Propane furnaces. The heat source is the LP and the fan and thermostat operate on 12VDC from the battery.

It sounds like a Truma Alde system. That is a hydronic heat and hot water system. A propane burner and/or electric element heats glycol which is then circulated through a series of heat registers in the trailer. Dry quiet, super efficient. It’s a common system on higher end trailers. They have excellent reputations.

Hope that helps.
