We asked the dealership to perform a very through PDI, since there is no Newmar dealership in our home state.

Newmar flew a factory tech to the dealership for a week to assist the dealership tech with repairs. When we picked up the coach in April, it was in good shape without any major issues until we discovered a few while dry camping. Since I work full time at a time-intensive job, we have only been out a few times for several days each trip, but we have put about 1500 miles on the coach.
Wow. Tell us who the dealer is. Definitely should be on the good guy list. Credit to them to take the time to get the coach right. Thanks for the write up. Solar equipped NA is a nimble machine.

I believe domestic hot water is a passive system -- meaning the hot Oasis coolant is what heats the water. There's enough hot coolant to heat the water for quite some time (and the coolant will keep flowing even with the Oasis off).

Curious why you felt like you had to turn off the Oasis? It consumes very little energy or diesel.

Oasis - I meant we turned off the Oasis "burner" while were not using it since it's pretty loud. We leave it powered on from the time we depart our storage area until we return from our trip.

Dealer - the dealer was not great, so I'll avoid the name. They made several mistakes but the individual service tech we had was good and thorough. We pushed for that detail inspection by requiring the full Newmar PDI sheet filled out, sent to us and rectified before we arrived since we came from out of state.
