Actually things are backwards, when all switches on the diesel takes priority and the AC is used to augment. I would love to know how to make AC primary and Diesel secondary...

Anyone know

Just to make certain, I watched the Oasis in Silverleaf, turned on the hot water, and as soon as the AC elements came on, I shut off the hot water. I heard the diesel kick in a few seconds later (which does NOT indicate that diesel is secondary; it simply needs time to start up, including getting the combustion fan going and validating all is well before it fires up). So, in short, in my NADP, when all 3 are selected, all 3 simultaneously come on.

Note that if you hear your summer loop running, that does NOT mean your AC elements are on. I wonder if that's causing confusion.

You Can’t! The system is not backwards... The Burner is the PRIMARY heat source (50K BTU). The AC Immersion elements are the SECONDARY heat source (10K BTU). The ONLY way to “use” the AC Elements as “primary” is to turn off the Burner! And with the Burner off, continuous hot water is not guaranteed. From the Oasis User’s Manual: “As long as heat is available in the OASIS Heating Module, the Distribution Module will respond to a call for domestic hot water. Ensure that a heat source has been selected (i.e. Burner, AC, Engine). The production of the domestic hot water is continuous on the Burner operation and limited when using AC or Engine.”

A GenTuri can be used on either generator or AquaHot. Some places require their use if camping is tight.

Never said IT COULD!, just when electric is included, it would be nice to have the burner as backup. No need for the !!! or manual reference.

There are several different models even within one manufacturer. In most cases, the smaller units have a single thermostat that controls both diesel and electric. If both switches are on, both will activate. Other models have two thermostats, one for diesel and one for electric. The one I worked on showed the electric thermostat set a little higher than the diesel. With both switches on, if the electric could keep up with the demand, the diesel didnít come on. If it couldnít, the temp drops below the diesel thermostat and the diesel starts.

FYI-The Gen-turi won't work for the King Aire heater exhaust because the slide is in the way. It come out under the FW slide.

Donít think Iíd like having that exhaust and CO exit under a slide. Kind of like a car with no tail pipes. Exhaust under the vehicle. Body is supposedly sealed but CO is to deadly to take chances.

Our Gulf Stream has the unit in a bay under a slide but the exhaust is routed to the rear so it exits between slides.

According to Oasis The electric and Burner use the same aqustat The system will heat to about 170 degrees and the shut down until the temp drops to 130 and then will use electric, boiler or both to reheat to 170. Also remember no furnace heat will be there unless boiler is selected.

Thanks for the info!

FWIW, I can heat with just AC. Obviously not as effective but I do get heat.

I agree, I think it is that it can't keep the temp up with electric. I haven't seen many posts from you are you getting your bugs out?

It works if itís 30 outside. But yeah any colder and you probably need boiler. But man the heated floors do wonders even at 25! Heat almost never comes on!

Iím full timing in it still. Over a year now. About to land in San Diego for the winter!

Yeah pretty much got a stable unit now. Iíve begun posting videos again to my YouTube channel (TisTheDestiny).
