Oasis heating wet bay question

Upgraded from gasser to diesel in August and still learning. From putting a thermometer in the wet bay, it seems as if heating it is automatic. Overnight was in the 30's but wet bay temp only went down to 55.

Wondering if that is preprogrammed or is there soemthing we need to be aware of to make sure we have heat in the wet bay in cold weather.

Hi - There is a disc type thermostat in the wet bay that will cause the fan on the heat exchanger to come on at about 40 degrees. So long as the Oasis up and running you are all set.

Thanks. Good to know. That's along the lines of what we were thinking. Do you monitor to make sure the thermostat doesn't fail? (Based on things that already went bad.) I'd hate to be counting on something that stopped working.

So do I understand you correctly? If I have my oasis AC1 and/or AC2 on while plugged in the wet bay is protected even though I am not running the furnace for the rest of the coach. Our weather outlook looks good presently so I am not running the furnace right now. Once it gets to freezing temps again I will turn the furnace on again.

That seems to be the case. When we were trying to figure out how it works, we didn't have the furnace on. We were just using the heat pumps. We had an indoor/outdoor thermometer in the wet bay. Outside temperature was went down to 40 but the wet bay temperature never got lower than 55. Seemed as if once it got down to 40 that it kicked on a wet bay heater.

Our heat pump info said they will work to 30, using their "defrost cycle," which surprised us.
