Truma Plans LevelCheck Launch for Louisville
Germany-based Truma Corp. is entering the North American RV market with its LevelCheck device, an indicator that shows the filling level of LP tanks. According to a press release, the LevelCheck will be introduced as part of the Dec. 3-5 Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) National RV Trade Show.
“The device uses ultrasound to establish whether there is liquid gas at the point on the tank at which it is held,” said Elden Wood, vice president of sales and marketing for the Munich-area company. When held horizontally against the gas tank, the LED status light turns green if there is LP gas at the measuring point or red if there is no LP gas. “This makes it is easy to determine how full the tank is, and with ultrasound technology, measurements are very precise and reliable,” says Wood. While the device is determining the fill level, the LED status light flashes orange; and a beep tone indicates clearly the start and end of the measuring process.
The Truma LevelCheck is suitable for all propane and butane steel or aluminum tanks with approximate diameters between 8 and 14 inches. “It is a great help when camping or enjoying outdoor activities, for example when barbecuing with LP gas,” Wood said. A practical LED flashlight is built into the device as an added benefit in low-light situations.
Dealers are welcomed and encouraged to visit Truma for more information on LevelCheck, or how to become a LevelCheck reseller, at the 51st Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky from December 3 to 5, 2013. Dealers who place an order at the show, will receive their own free LevelCheck (one per dealership please). The company will be located at booths 40-42 located in the South Wing – Hall 1, and will preview a selection of innovative products including: heating, air conditioning, maneuvering systems and the LP tank level indicator LevelCheck.
