Wayne, thanks for responding. I am not sure what you mean by "common to the control panel" Yesterday the low battery voltage fault light was red on the electric controller, now nothing is showing. None of the 3 switches (diesel, electric or engine preheat) are doing anything. The 110 breaker has not been tripped.
I found the shop manual, thanks again. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Lyle

Happy New Year to All. Looking forward to DRRV also and seeing the Apex

Lyle, Try the reset again I had to remove the Phillips tip screws on the panel that has the reset switch because the hole did not line up with it. It has a definite click when you contact it. I was referring to that same panel.

Check for 12 volts at the electronic panel per page 17 and figure 3. Not getting green lights on the switch panel is an indication of no 12 volts. The panel is basically dumb, when the switch is on, 12 volts is supplied to the switch light from the 12 volt wire in the harness coming from the hydro hot.

L & C,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

If the gren light is out on the panel where the reset is, try the reset with a dowel (I used a chop stick) and fish for the reset. I took the panel off the 1st time , but it has worked for me each time I have had a power interuption.

Ours was left disconnected once, and we frooze in Yakima in Feb. Learned later to light a couple of candles to add heat. Makes sense, but our brains were numb.

Counting down to early March for our APEX p/u.

See you at the DRR.

Sully

Well guys I tried the reset again and I did not find anything that felt like a reset button. Nothing went click or felt springy. We are in a very cold torrential downpour with wind and I will try the 12v stuff after it lets up just a bit. Right now I have to thaw and dry out.
Thanks for all the help.

Use the stove! Or cook something in the Advantium on convection. It's amazing how much heat it puts out. Heat pumps?

Lyle,

If memory serves me, and that gets less reliable,
there is a click, not anything soft or spring. Are there red lights on the HH panel?

Call if I can help, 619-392-8775

Wayne those are good ideas. We were advised that there would be no reason for heat pumps and right now I wish that I had not listened. Hey its all part of the experience right?

Sully, I will fish around some more for that reset when its not quite as bitter outside.

Thanks guys I really appreciate the help. I definitely will call when it gets to the point that I can not go any further. I am still wet and frozen, if I only had a hot shower, hmmmm microwave?

Try switching off the House and/or Chassis battery disconnect for 30 seconds. Maybe that will reset the power (wild guess).

Sorry, resetting is required whenever the power to the Hydro-Hot is interupted for whatever reason. I
found out the hard way, had no Hydro-Hot after an inverter swap and took it all apart before calling the factory and told to hit the reset!

Here's an idea for you while you sort out your Hydro Hot problems. If you can get to a Lowes, Homedepot, Walmart, etc. and pick up a oscillating ceramic heater. We use one all the time and it takes the chill off without using the main furnace. You might have to run the gen to power it.

Or get behind the wheel, turn on the dash heat, and head to warmer climate. That's why these coaches have wheels!

Now why didn't I think about that? We are on our way.
