Default UPDATE Webasto Still Flakey

Howdy, Rob.
Jack and Liz if you lose your Webasto and only have electricity to heat then besides heating the interior put a 60W lamp in each tank bay as well as the bay that houses your water pumps. I've done this in temperatures as low as high twenties.

Thanks for the tip. We do have one in the water pump bay. This morning, Saturday, after running all night, our Webasto refused to ignite around 4 AM. I turned it off and turned on the electric heaters plus another little cube electric heater.
Jack is scratching his head over this latest problem. That Racor is exposed to the cold air and I wonder if that diesel fuel is a little too cold. It looks clear though. We also have SNOW here in Dhanis, TX. Really unusual!!.

How are y'all doing?

Regards,
Liz

Good. Who is your insurance company? I am assuming that you are living in a motel?

Default Wintertime question

I winterized the water side of my AH with RV antifreeze. If I run the burner for heat, will this boil out the antifreeze in the coil? Can I run the electric element without water? Thanks!

I do not have an AquaHot system bit my thinging is as follows:

The AH diesel burner heats the AH side of the engine loop coolant. This engine coolant loop goes through the Hot Water heater and the coach hydronic heat exchangers. You can use this AH heat loop with or without water in the coach hot water tank without damage. I am also thinking that tha AH electric heater element is heating the coolant loop. If this is the case, then it will not matte if water is in the Hot Water tank.

However, you should not use an electric water heating element when not submersed in water or you risk burning out the element from hot spots.

I think you will be ok with water or RV antifreeze for an electric element; just not air.

I'm sure someone else can clean up any mistakes I might have made in my assumptions on how the AH works.

Regards,

Glenn

Default Aqua-Hot Winterization

Elliot

You can use your Aqua-Hot without any limitations when it is winterized.
