Aqua-Hot Heating Systems Inc., a supplier of hydronic heating systems for RVs, announced that it expanded its marketing department, recently adding Jerri Hu as business and marketing analyst. Hu is responsible for market research as well as business and financial modeling.
“It is unusual for a company of our size to have this capability,” said Paul Harter, president/CEO of Aqua-Hot. “However, with as fast as we are growing and the many opportunities in front of us, having someone of Jerri’s background and capability will help us make better decisions more quickly, with even better accuracy.”
Hu earned her undergraduate degree at Jianghan Petroleum College in China, graduating in 2004, and her MBA in global social & sustainable enterprise at Colorado State University in 2013. As part of her MBA program, Hu worked as a business development consultant at E-Flux Services Company where she developed the business plan and financial valuations for scale-up capital investment requirements. Prior to her MBA program, she worked for Shell China Exploration & Production Company in Beijing as executive assistant.

For decades, Foretravel Motorcoach has crafted exceptional motorcoaches using technological innovation to develop luxurious comfort and styling. With that in mind, the company has chosen to offer the Aqua-Hot 600-D as standard equipment aboard its IH and Phenix models and optional on its Nimbus model, according to a news release. However, the hydronic heating unit can be installed on any of its motorcoaches.
“We decided to offer Aqua-Hot heating units on our motorhomes because of its improved burner design, efficiency and reliability,” said Greg, Amys, Foretravel president and CEO. “We are very satisfied with Aqua-Hot’s latest models, especially the 600.”
Aqua-Hot’s second most powerful heating system has the ability to keep the interior of an RV comfortably warm, provide continuous hot water and preheat the engine in all recreational locations. The Aqua-Hot 600 uses power from three sources, recycling heat from the engine when driving, shore power when available, and diesel fuel at any time. With its dual 2,000 watt electric elements, it isn’t necessary to use the diesel-burner option in most weather conditions, saving fuel.
For over 40 years, Foretravel has been known in the RV industry as a trendsetter and producer of the finest luxury motorcoaches. The company is located in Nacogdoches, Texas.
For over 25 years, Aqua-Hot Heating Systems has been delivering state-of-the-art systems that provide continuous hot water, uniform cabin heat and engine preheating to RVers’ home-away-from-home. Making the road a more comfortable place, the company employs advanced technology that virtually eliminates all exhaust odor.

From Aqua-Hot Heating Systems, the leader in hydronic heating systems for the RV industry for over 25 years, comes the innovative Aqua-Hot 100 Off-Road Heater. Connecting to an engine’s cooling system, the compact unit quietly and efficiently heats cabs with a brushless, radial axial fan. The economical Aqua-Hot 100 draws less than 0.5 amps, ensuring long hours of warmth without draining the battery. Delivering big heat from a small package, it weighs only 3 1/2 lbs. and measures 5 1/2 inches high, 5 1/2 inches deep and 9 1/2 inches wide. A tough, high-strength nylon housing resists harsh elements and challenging environments. An adjustable mounting bracket rotates 180 degrees for easy installation to the floor, firewall or under dash. Slotted mounting arms and a serrated clamp ensure a tight fit. An integrated, variable-speed switch reduces wiring and enables the fan to be set from 0 to 100 cfm. It carries a one-year warranty. MSRP: $189.99. For larger cabins where more battery power is available, the Aqua-Hot 200 provides a fan output of 0 to 200 cfm and draws just 2 amps. Convenient installation kits are also offered.

A leader in RV hydronic heating for over 20 years, Aqua-Hot Heating Systems has appointed Paul A. Harter to president.
Most recently general manager and vice president, Harter will position the Fort Lupton, Colo.-based company to best take advantage of the recovery, according to a news release. He succeeds company founder Harold “Hap” Enander, who died last year.
“At the beginning of the recession, we were in a good situation and had little debt so we could invest in new product development,” said Harter. “By targeting other classes of RVs, including trailers and fifth-wheels and moving outside the industry, we’ll increase our market share.”
Joining Aqua-Hot in the summer of 2006, Harter helped reorganize the company, improving quality control and facilitating this diversification. A proven leader, he served as general manager at Android Industries and executive director for the International Society of Arboriculture.
“I have some pretty big shoes to fill at Aqua-Hot,” said Harter. “Our founder had a vision for the company and I’m willing to step up to the challenge and make it a reality.”
Aqua-Hot Heating Systems has introduced its Aqua-Hot 375-LP. Running on propane, the self-contained unit provides quiet, even cabin heat and continuous, on-demand hot water, according to a news release. Unlike noisy, forced-air systems, the advanced Aqua-Hot 375-LP delivers uniform interior heat by circulating hot water through subtle heat exchangers. Three separate thermostatic heating zones and two circulation loops ensure consistent warmth throughout the cabin. Heating water only as needed, the space-saving device provides an unlimited supply of hot water and eliminates the need for a storage tank. With zero recovery time, the unit has a flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute of 120°F water for over 15 minutes. It can generate up to 90 gallons of hot water an hour. The system heats to 37,500 BTUs after 3.37 minutes, reducing fuel requirements. It barely uses 0.35 gallons of propane per hour. A 1,500-watt, 120-volt electric element provides light-duty heating and hot water when connected to shore power. This enables owners to save propane when they have access to campground electricity. With the same dimensions and mounting procedure, the diesel-powered Aqua-Hot 375-D and propane model are virtually interchangeable. Measuring just 16.75″ high by 18″ wide by 29.5″ long and weighing only 155 lbs., the compact system can be installed as original equipment or retrofitted into an existing coach. MSRP: $6,000.
