Truma Coolers - Dual Zone Electric Cooler Bluetooth - TR64VR Review


Hi everybody, Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're gonna take a look at this Truma dual zone electric cooler. Now this 18 gallon electric cooler is going to be perfect for such adventures as overlanding, camping, tailgating, road trips, boating, and more. It's gonna keep your food and drinks cold or frozen and you're not gonna have to worry about the mess of ice. This dual zone fridge and freezer is not only perfect for your longer adventures, but it is going to work great as an additional fridge in your RV, your camper, your boat, and even to use around your home as well. Now this dual zone cooler is going to give you maximum versatility.

This cooler features a durable steel reinforced lid and sides And if you notice here, as I was giving you kind of the overview of it, we have these reinforced corners that's going to protect the interior of this cooler. So it is very durable, very rugged, I feel like it's going to be able to put up with quite a bit of punishment. The space saving handles here are going to fold down flush with the side wall, so they're not gonna be in your way when you are not using them. And this overall, this weighs about 69 pounds. And just to give you some dimensions here up front I measured this earlier before our time together we are sitting right at about 29 inches long, 18 inches wide.

Then the overall height we're about 22 inches tall. Now this cooler lid is going to remove for easy loading and unloading. And it's also going to be the opening direction, the direction to open this lid is also reversible. So to remove this lid, all you have to do is open it and then fold back just a little bit more and that lid is going to pop right off. And then I mentioned that this is reversible so let me just turn this around and put it back in this way.

And that's going to drop right into the hinges here. And there we go. So if you have this in a vehicle and you need to switch around the lid so you can get at it easier, that's not going to be a problem at all, and it's gonna be very easy to do that. Now taking a look overhead, inside we have a fully refrigerated stepped compartment and this has a temperature range of -8 degrees Fahrenheit to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so we have have quite a bit of room in here. And you see these baskets here, we have removable baskets that's going to make this very easy to load and unload this cooler.

So let me go back to the wide view here real quick and just take these baskets out just to kind of give you a comparison here of what they look like. So these baskets come right out and not only is it gonna be great for loading and unloading, but you can take them out to easily clean out the cooler and clean the baskets themselves. And then on our other compartment here kind of gives you an idea of the size. And then there is a a lid here as well that's going to close off this portion of the panel here. So very convenient and very practical. Now the, as I mentioned this does have an 18 gallon capacity. So you're going to have plenty of head room right in this area here for upright standing bottles. And just to kind of give you an idea of how much you can fit in this cooler, you can fit about 87 12 ounce cans. And this is deep enough to hold a half gallon of milk and a two liter bottle upright. Let me go ahead and turn my studio lights off here real quick just to show you that we do have an LED light, and that's going to light up the interior, making it easy to find items in low light or dark conditions. Now there is a drain plug and you can see it right there at the bottom. That's going to allow you to easily drain any condensation or anything like that out of this cooler. So again, cleanup is going to be very easy. I'm gonna go ahead and close our door. By the way, just like your fridge at home that interior light is going to turn off when you close the lid. Now taking a look here at our panel here, the cooler is going to plug into your 12 volt outlet or your 110 volt AC with the included cables. And as you can see right now, I do have this plugged in here to my AC outlet here in the studio. And I've had this on for a while now and it's, it has cooled down the interior really quickly and it runs very quietly as well. And the energy efficient design of this cooler is going to limit power use with an average hourly amp draw of about 0.8 amps. Now the temperature is controlled by this exterior panel with this LED display or it can be controlled via Bluetooth through the smartphone app as well. And that's a free download in depending on which smartphone you're using. And the display is going to show the set point and the actual temperature inside of our cooler. So right now we have our stepped compartment here set at 42 degrees. And then the enclosed compartment there with the lid on top that we saw earlier is sitting at 30 degrees. And the control panel has a series of buttons. We have our power button, and of course it's gonna turn this off or turn this on. Then we have our turbo button. And so I have that off, but then when you press that down. You see our turbo light came on that's going to kick the compressor up a little bit higher to cool things down quicker, so that's a great feature of this cooler. And then we have a power indicator light or fault light. Right now it's green so everything is good, but if there is some kind of fault that light will flash orange. And then again, our turbo indicator letting us know if we have our turbo function on or off. Our LED display, and then our mode button, and then our temperature setting button. Now I did go ahead and download the app here on my smartphone. So let me bring this in the view here real quick. And as you can see it's showing that first compartment there at 42 degrees. And if I kick that up a little bit you see that changes in real time there. And then I can go to my second zone and change that temperature as well. And then if I want, I can kick on the turbo feature. And so it is instantaneous as long as you have a Bluetooth connection. And of course there's other functions as well. You can check the battery voltage it controls the battery discharge protection, and it also will display any error messages on that app. So that app is really gonna be great and convenient to control this cooler. Now the AC, we have one AC connection and we have two DC connections. So here is our first one and then turning this back to the opposite side here, here is our second one. So no matter how you have this positioned in your vehicle you're gonna have easy access to that DC connection. And then we also have a USB port here that is going to allow you to conveniently charge your smartphone or other compatible devices. And then another feature that I wanted to point out that I think is pretty, pretty nice with this cooler is our emergency override switch. So for normal operation the switch is gonna stay where you see it at right now in normal, in the normal use position. And if an electronic control or display board failure occurs then you can just slide this over to the emergency override position, and that will allow the cooler to run with full cooling capacity. And it may freeze what you have in there, but it's just going to run at full capacity until you can get home or to a place where you can have this checked out and repaired. So this is going to include the AC power cable that I mentioned, and then also our DC connector cable, and then instructions, and everything that you need to get going with this cooler. Well, that's going to conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..
