Well, if you can find us a Service Technician in this area, and one who is mobile, I certainly have a credit card handy. Good luck with that.

It is hard to bleed the air out of these systems, a circ pump, bucket and lots of coolant is the best way. Not that big a deal, but does take time to flush all the air out.

Do you have a photo of that "coolant tank next to the engine coolant overflow tank" that we could look at? Might be helpful.

Thanks for the info. Wrote to Roger and received name of mobile tech. Put in a phone call, left message and our contact info on his web page.
The temperature didn't get as low last night as predicted. But we had trouble lights in all the important bays, and let the kitchen sink faucet run a little all night. Just like we used to do in our previous motorhome. :-)

Ya know, old age is NOT for sissies!! I still don't grasp the concept of getting coolant through to the Webasto. I need visual aides. <sigh>
Thanks again,
Liz Pearce
