The ultra-compact 200 Series is sized for 5th wheels, class C and smaller class A coaches, and is featured in the new Entegra Insignia motorhome.

Aqua-Hot says in a press release that the new line provides heat similar to a home or luxury motorhome experience. According to the statement, Aqua-Hot's 200 Series provides gentle currents of even warmth, without the noise and dry dustiness of a forced-air furnace. The company's heater is controlled by a simple switch and thermostat. Additionally, the heater delivers continuous, hot water at a rate of 1.5 gpm for showers, laundry and washing dishes.

The 200 Series is fueled by propane or diesel, and operates by 12V electricity with an optional 110V electric element. The 200 Series can be used with up to five heat exchangers providing up to 40,000 BTU per hour of heat, and can be adapted to provide in-floor heat. All ports are located on the top of the single unit, designed for easy access and quick, convenient installation. The 200 series is half the size of Aqua-Hot's 400 series, measuring 11.69"H x 12.45"W x 21.61"L and weighs 84 lbs. empty.
