147680757721920.jpgELKHART, Indiana – The Forest River type A Diesel division has made the decision to use the Truma AquaGo as the exclusive water heater on all models moving forward, Forest River has said in a press release.

Jeff Babcock, general manager of Forest River's motorized operations, came to the decision after discussions with the company's operations manager Dave Carpenter and diesel division manager Mike Peterson.

“Our dealers and end users have been asking for a more consistent and reliable water heater," Babcock says. "We have been using the Truma AquaGo in the Forest River Berkshire, Legacy and Charleston, and feel now is the perfect time to begin using it on all of our models because of the high quality and luxury it offers."

“We want our customers to enjoy the pleasure of showering in their coach the way they do at home," Peterson adds. "The Truma AquaGo functions flawlessly at low flow rates and with 60K BTUs, it is the most powerful water heater on the market. It’s the only instant water heater in the industry that can be easily decalcified so our customers will continue to have a stress-free experience using this product for years to come.”

“Truma is grateful for this opportunity to work with Forest River Class A Diesel," Truma President and CEO Gerhard Hundsberger says. "We look forward to fortifying our partnership, supporting dealers and ultimately campers with the carefree hot water experience the Truma AquaGo offers.”
