Hi folks. We are looking at a little trailer for our next RV. The unit has an ALDE hydronic heating and hot water system. It is a Swedish system and seems quite common in Europe. Wondering how many have or have had this system and what they thought of it.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers.

On edit. Fixed the original question to reflect hot water.

We had that system in a Nucamp Tab trailer we had for a very short while. We never fired it up. It was located under the bed. It did have a good bit of maintenance requirements. The RV was so small we just used a small electric heater. We had the camper for less than a year as it was too small for our likes. Not for cooling heating only.

We are looking at a Nucamp T@B 400. It checks most of the boxes for us. Easy on and off ferries, Gets us into the small parks and sites and pullable by the SUV we have selected. We have talked to a couple folks who recently got one but other than the hot water they haven’t had cause to use the heating which we will need. Just trying to touch base with those who have done some fall or early spring camping.

Yah. It’s the T@B 400 we are looking at. Small is important for our intended use. I found a Facebook page of owners and have listed a couple questions there as well. We are not planning on any winter camping but fall and early spring are definitely in the picture for us. I’m interested in reliability and serviceability comments.

Thanks for your input.

unless somthing has changed there is no cooling in the ALDE system, it would have a normal ac on top of the unit like any other trailer. the ALDE is heating, or heating and hot water. Myself, I wonder why it has taken so long to get an efficent silent and powerfull heating system in RV's that require way less battery power. I am even looking at the feasability of retrofitting one of these systems into my Truck Camper.

You are right Steve. I should have said heating and hot water. My bad. I edited the original post. The T@B uses basement/cabinet air so nothing on the roof. . I have talked to a Couple folks and they are happy with the cooling. I was in the trailer and the AC unit didn’t seem noisy. I’m sure it will be fine.

If you add air conditioning to that, be sure to include dehumidifying also.

There is also a forum on the web. Nucamp Tab forum. If you then search tab 400 while on that forum you will note few problems discussed.
