Question Truma S3002 Heater wired to 12V?

Hi Folks,
Has anyone wired their Truma S3002 in to the 12V supply, rather than light it using the 1.5V battery in the Auto-ignitor? (The batteries in mine seems to go flat very quickly, so I'm trying to find an alternative to them)

Realise that I'll need to reduce the voltage down to 1.5V, but not sure how...
Any ideas?

Thanks
Helen

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Wot he said Helen, I shall ad that if you go that way I'd run the 12v as closed the fire as possible maybe the cupboard or whatever it's mounted to so you don't lose the small 1.5v.


I prefer vans with those fires in, spares are really cheap by comparison but they are really reliable though and I like the way they warm the van up and can be controlled easily.

Thanks to both of you for the advice, much appreciated.

I am planning on taking the 12V from the light in the wardarobe above the heater, so that there will be very little distance to run cables.

I like this heater much better than the combi ones, as it can be used without any electricity once it's going,so is great for wild camping.
