Is your gas pressure regulation system coming to the end of the 10-year replacement period? And you’re already looking for a replacement. Here, you will find the Caramatic line from GOK, including crash sensor with pendulum solution. You’re wondering whether you can also replace products from other manufacturers – for example, the original series (up to year of manufacture 2018/2019) of the Mono or DuoControl CS from Truma for gas supply whiledriving.
No matter which technical system it is all about, one thing is usually the same: If you change the manufacturer of a component, this usually results in larger unit interventions in the system. Installation dimensions do not match or the connections are different. This can result in a time-consuming and cost-intensive conversion.
Does this also apply to LPG systems in motor caravans and caravans? Do I have to convert the entire system accordingly, if I’m considering, for example, replacing the Truma DuoControl CS with the GOK Caramatic DriveTwo?
No, on the contrary: if, according to DVGW worksheet G 607, the replacement of the gas pressure regulator is due after ten years, you can replace the Truma MonoControl CS or DuoControl CS one for one with the GOK Caramatic DriveOne or DriveTwo.
No additional costs thanks to Caramatic
How does this work? It’s very simple: The current Caramatic line from GOK is identical to the original (up to year of manufacture 2018/2019), silver-coloured series of Truma Mono and DuoControl CS.

This means:If you would like to replace Mono or DuoControl CS from Truma with DriveOne or DriveTwo from GOK, this is possible without additional effort; installation dimensions and connections are identical. This one-to-one replacement without additional expense and at no additional costs is only available when changing to the GOK Caramatic line.
Remote display and/or Eis-Ex
A conversion is also necessary if you want to switch from the original Truma series to the new black series of the Mono or DuoControl CS from Truma. This is a plus for the GOK Caramatic line if the regular replacement is due after ten years.
This is also worth knowing for users of a remote display or Eis-Ex regulator heating when changing to the Caramatic line:After replacing Mono or DuoControl CS from Truma to DriveOne or DriveTwo from GOK, simply reconnect the remote display or the Eis-Ex. Here, too, no cost-intensive conversion is necessary or the new purchase of these components.
To sum up briefly: If you have installed a pressure regulation system from Truma that is nearing the end of its 10-year period, you can replace it one to one with the equivalent from the Caramatic line from GOK. There are even a few advantages and we simply want to share this.
What we don’t want is to tell you in this article what to buy when the replacement becomes due. Ultimately, this decision will remain with you and that’s a good thing. We would only like to state the facts to give you an accurate overview of the market.
GOK and Truma are companies which are independent of each other in business terms with their own products and brands.
