Aqua-Hot debuts its first hydronic heater for class B campervans

American hydronic heating systems expert Aqua-Hot has revealed a brand-new heating solution that it claims is the first of its kind for class B campervans. The new Aqua-Hot 125D has been developed specifically for diesel class B campervans and is: “the first hydronic heating solution for this style of recreational vehicle (RV) that operates at high altitudes”.

The unit does not require a specialised kit or the periodic carbon buildup maintenance required with rival units and Aqua-Hot claims it delivers a gentle, comfortable heat and continuous hot water in a compact, modular package.

Aqua-Hot, an Airxcel brand, is synonymous with innovative hydronic heating systems for class A motorhomes, now it hopes to do the same with class B.


The technical stuff – what Aqua-Hot says:

The Aqua-Hot 125D provides 0.8 gpm of continuous hot water at 110°–120° F. An ideal amenity for Class B comfort, it can be used for cooking, showering or washing dishes.

Engineered for fast, easy installation, the 125D measures a mere 11.5" H x 7.5" W x 17.66" L and weighs only 51 lbs. empty. Water and fuel ports are conveniently located on the unit's side for simple, hassle-free connecting.

Running on diesel fuel and/or 120V/1,500W AC shore power, the 125D provides an impressive 22,000 Btu/hr of heat. Unlike hot forced air heaters that can produce uncomfortably dry air, the Aqua-Hot hydronic system quietly envelops RVers in gentle currents of warmth through up to three heat exchangers without lowering the interior humidity.

The 125D comes with Aqua-Hot's new LCD Screen and Controller. With intuitive operation, users can set three different heating zones independent of one another. A Night/Quiet Mode allows the fans to run at slower and quieter speeds. It's RV-C compatible, so the heater can be monitored and controlled via a touchscreen display or smart device.
