Thoughts on adding Truma AquaGo 2017 Classic

We love our Alde system, one of the reasons we waited until 2017 to buy our classic. Interior environment is even from one end to the other. However when it comes to showers the system is not designed for endless hot water, not that we stand in the shower for days. We are considering adding a Truma AquaGo for the shower. One may think why? We have used on demand tankless water heaters in our homes for 20 years, both NG and Propane. If you have never experienced tankless on demand you are missing out. For owners w/the Alde system in their AS's, thoughts, comments, opinions are appreciated.

Best regards and safe travels

After many trials and tribulations Iím getting 8 to 10 minutes of hot water for a shower. I find Iím done in the shower long before the hot water runs out. So, for me, the cost of the Truma would not be a good investment. A year ago this time I might have had a different answer. Thanks to ďPaicemanĒ, Laurie and a couple of other pioneers, as well as Airstreamís willingness to get the system right, Iím satisfied at this point.

Scott, I have the 2017 Classic and after a lot of tweaking I have 12 full minutes of seriously HOT, steamy showers. Cross my heart. I have heard of a few of owners who gave up and went with one of the continuous hot water systems. I, too, had one in my stick build house and I loved it but for the Airstream I would not bother. I just don’t have the need. It can be done but if you ask my opinion...well, no. I know of several other owners with our model that are happy with the amount of hot water they are getting.

Hello Lauri,

I am good w/tweaking. I am thinking I need to go to the Alde thread and take a look at what you have done. Do you by chance have thread #?

Best regards and safe travels

Scott, unfortunately I could not get the thread to link up but if you scoll down a couple of threads you will see the “ Much Ado Alde “ thread. I think it’s about 37 pages of information regarding Alde. Pretty much everything you need to know to about the system. If you get your system set up correctly I promise you will have pretty decent hot water. If you miss a step, you won’t.
