here are many smart features hidden behind the MENU-button in the Alde control panel. Take a look inside. Maybe you’ll find a new favourite function!
Night mode allows you to have a lower temperature at night, which usually means better sleep and greater comfort. In addition to changing the temperature, you can also change the status screen backlight, set any AC to night mode (Truma AC), switch off hot water and underfloor heating, and change the temperature sensor, if you have an extra sensor installed in e.g. the sleeping area.
In this example, we’re setting the desired temperature on the main menu to 22 °C. This is our “normal” setting. We set night mode to 17 °C, starting at 22:00 and ending at 06:00, when we get up. At 06:00, the desired temperature will return to 22 °C, which is the default setting in the main menu.
Day mode automatically changes selected functions during the day, which is especially useful if you would like to lower the temperature in the vehicle while you’re away. Select the time interval and whether it should be done every day or on a specific day each week. The temperature and hot water production can be changed.
The night mode setting is as before, but here we’re also using day mode. We set day mode to 10 °C to keep the cold at bay from 09:00 when we leave the vehicle to 15:00 when we return. During the periods between day and night mode, the system maintains the desired standard temperature of 22 °C.
This function allows you to automatically start and operate the boiler between two pre-set times. Using this function, you only pay for heating during a short period but have the added convenience of returning to a warm vehicle. You save money, the environment and unnecessary boiler operation.
The boiler will run between the two set times. This procedure will be repeated at the same time the following week if the function is set to ON and the Alde control panel is turned off.
Be sure to set the date and time in the Alde control panel before using time-dependent functions like Delayed Start and Night/Day mode.
Remember that the fresh water in the boiler must always be drained if there is a risk of freezing weather or if the vehicle will not be in use, to prevent the boiler from freezing.
We recommend you invest in an Alde Battery Back-up to make sure your time settings are saved when you unplug the cable from the campsite’s EHU or turn off your main switch.
