Aqua-Hot Gen1 Heater

  • $ 2,348.99

Still heating your camper van with separate air heaters and water heaters? The Aqua-Hot Gen1 Heater is a compact, fuel-efficient RV heater that heats both air and water. Save space and cost by incorporating this versatile, all-in-one RV heater into your camper van or RV.

With a 13500-20000 BTU output, this heater can easily heat a medium- or large campervan. And it's not just going to be warm right next to the heater: with 4 ducts, you can direct the heat to where it is needed—the galley, the sleeping area and the seating areas.

The efficient design of the Gen1 means it outperforms conventional RV water heaters that typically just have a bottom burner - with the Gen1, the water tank wraps around the heater, getting water to piping hot in 20 minutes or less.

Wondering which fuel you'll need? The Aqua-Hot Gen1 RV heater comes in versions which can be powered by diesel, gasoline or propane, use the drop-down to pick the version that suits your needs.

The Aqua-Hot Gen1 heater comes with every component you need for a camper van/RV heater installation, including the Gen1 heater, control panel, flexible ducting, and exhaust and intake tubing. 

Key Features: Aqua-Hot Gen1 Heater

The Aqua-Hot Gen1 Heater has the following key features:

  • Heat Where You Need It, How You Need It - Heat can be ducted to 4 locations where heat is needed, no more hot spots/cold spots. Four heating fan speeds enable you to choose how the heat is delivered.
  • Hot Water - The Aqua-Hot Gen1 heater can heat 2.64 gallons (10 liters) of water up to 176 degrees Fahrenheit in about 20 minutes, and can refill from the RV water tank as needed.

  • Multiple Fuel Options - The Gen1 heater comes in multiple versions which can be powered by diesel, gasoline or propane, making it compatible with any camper van, motorhome or RV.
  • Easy-to-Use Control Panel - The LCD control panel shows up to 3 independently controlled zones, plus test and diagnostic read out.
