There are no cons in my book. I would not have a coach without it. I love a long hot shower... it provides it. I love the heat it provides, very comforting.

I take care of mine and it takes care of me.

One of the best innovations developed for motorhomes IMHO. It would be a must in any future coach purchases by me.

Great for hot water and heating. Quite, even heat and plenty of it and endless hot water. Much higher maintenance than a propane furnace and electric water heater, though.

We have 3 ppl in a MH with a 10 gallon hot water tank. We have yet to run out of hot water. I have heard more horror stories with Aqua Hot hydronic water systems. The hot water heating fluid flows under your floor collecting heat as it flows. There are issues with it. I've seen a "Aqua Hot" expert repair flyer at just about every campground. Hmmm,,,

Well, we don't miss it, don't need it.. If the RV had it, It would be another concern for repairs down the road.

I think it is more of a sales marketing scheme.

RE: Aqua-Hot

Read the message thread, here: RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Class A Motorhomes: Hydronic Zone Heating

For the majority of Aqua-Hot users, their Aqua-Hot just sits in the bay and makes all of the hot water / heat that you want.

Once you have it, you won't ever have a coach without it! Does that answer your question? Those that knock this unit haven't had it, so really don't understand it's advantages.

I've had 2 coaches so far and both have had the Aqua-Hot...Wouldn't have a coach with out it..best thing since slice bread...It is sooooo nice taking that long hot shower and the heating for the coach is great... Don't have to worry about propane either, I'm still working off of the 25 gal tank that was filled when I bought my coach in March 2008.

I just have my Aqua-Hot serviced once a year (change filter and clean the burner) and it's good to go.

We are very pleased with our AH. The first night on the road (boondocking at a Walmart) after picking up our coach, the outside temps were about five above zero. Overnight the heater kept us toasty warm, and the engine was kept just as toasty for an easy start up in the morning. Peace of mind for us.
