Valve on oasis

Hope someone can help me. When we picked up our 2012 DSDP I forgot to ask where the valve is to turn the oasis from winter to summer. Thanks for the help.

Hi Beacher, good question. The documentation that the dealer gave me showed a bypass valve on top of the unit. I have looked everywhere this weekend but did not see the bypass valve. When I went to turn off the unit, I did notice a button below the power button that was marked "Bypass". I will call ITR and ask them if that button operates a summer bypass valve.

I did call ITR today (manufacturer of the OASIS) and talked with them about Summer Bypass. The way they have designed the system we don't need to worry about bypassing for summer use. The domestic hot water and the circulating heater water are run off of different pumps. So if the coach thermostat does not call for heat, hot water is not run through the coach radiators. How simple!! The button labled Bypass on the Oaisis system ( below the on/off button) is used to operate the pumps when air is being purged and we should not need to use that Bypass button for normal use.

FYI, there's one other time that you might need to use the Bypass valve. For Hot Water, the diesel burner is activated by a thermocouple on the output pipe. If the temp on the output pipe goes down, then the burner turns on. If that thermocouple ever fails, you can force the burner on by engaging the bypass. Just remember to turn it off when you don't need the extra heat anymore.
