Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Question about the Truma AquaGo water heater


We had a Truma AquaGo installed in 2016. It does not have an interior control panel. We've never had it descaled - is descaling possible when you don't have the control panel?
Also wondering if it's possible to have the control panel installed now?

Thanks, Ron. We don't have a softener but maybe need to do that.

Believe me, a water softener will improve your quality of life and your RV will thank you. It is something else to maintain ... but worth the effort, IMO.

 FWIW  x20  - especially with all the plastic valves and fittings in every RV.

Just as an FYI, a water softener using salt adds sodium to one's water.  Wife has problems with swelling of her hands when she drinks softened water.  In most places, we never have a problem with the water, but on our new job and staying in hotels, they are using softeners and she has had to take up drinking bottled water.  We've never done that before.

We did have a home once that had a softener, and it didn't take us long to have them come out and put in a reverse osmosis system for the kitchen sink and refrigerator.

Thanks, Terry, I really appreciate that cautionary reminder. Salt intake is definitely something we need to be mindful of.

Potassium is an alternative to those with Sodium sensitivity.

It's readily available at Lowe's, Home Depot, Amazon, etc. It's Potassium Chloride which is commonly used by those who are sensitive to Sodium.
