Aqua-Hot Heating Systems, Inc. was founded in 1984 by Harold “Hap” Enander as Vehicle Systems, Inc. which manufactured and sold various RV accessories.
Hap being an RV enthusiast was always looking for better RV solutions, one being a better way to heat his coach and water supply.
He wanted quiet, evenly distributed heat and unlimited hot water when he had a continuous supply of water available. Because he was not able to find what he wanted, he designed and created his own system.
Engineered for RVs, the quiet, economic system did indeed supply moist, even interior heat and continuous on-demand hot water when hooked to a continuous supply of water.
It also provided engine preheating reducing wear and tear at engine start up. Hap called it the Aqua-Hot Heating System® and it revolutionized the RV heating industry.
The story of the company’s evolution unfolds from there.
With such a great product, Hap knew other RVers would love it, so he hired additional employees and began product development and enhancement, resulting in a smaller unit a few years later called Hydro-Hot.
