Default 'New Aquahot'?

The saga continues. I hope to have my new (to me) 40Lx in 2 weeks. That is what the dealer tells me today. Its been 5 weeks I think. As long as I have been on the WOG. Anyway, I go by there to see how its going. They take me back to see the coach. I get to it in the shop just as the aqua hot starts up. Smoke everywhere. This is the second time since I bought it I have seen them working on the aqua hot. The mechanic runs out and is totally frazzled. The sales guy asks if I can see what he is doing. He throws up his hands and says oh no, no no no. He reeks of diesel. I catch a glimpse of what I think was the old unit on the ground (see pic). They have the air bags and they are going on at the same time with a second mechanic. The new brake spring cans boxes are stacked up by the bus waiting. I have had them blow on a truck once and don't want that to every happen to me in this coach. I have no idea how bad the originals are. Since the air bags are toast, I asked them to replace all the cans (my dime). I can see the hoses and they are okay. I hope they tell me what they did to get the aqua hot working, Looks like they are using old parts from the one on the ground?

I would think so. This is one of the largest mega dealers in SWFL. I have learned a lot myself. The sales guy blew it off when it smoked. He said ‘they all do that’. I know better. Considering everything, I get it I’ll put it on my list. One YT video showed one being taken apart (burner) so I get it. Still , I’ll put it on my list when I accept it. I can try if it still needs work.

As you already know a smoking Aqua Hot is not normal. Every time my Aqua Hot was smoking a new nozzle solved the issue. Not saying that is your issue, but it has worked for me.
