2017 Allegro Bus

Hi I've ordered a new 2017 Allegro Bus 40sp and wondering if anyone knows if the basement areas are truly heated to prevent the water pipes from freezing and if so how do I turn on that seperate system ?

Don't know what you're getting for heat, LP or Hydro-hot. If LP, your rear heater has a hot air line that drops hot air into the wet bay just behind the white barrier where the outdoor shower, filter and dump valves are located. That keeps the majority of pipes warm as long as you use it. Electric or gas space heaters upstairs keep you warm, but not the pipes. The wet bay area is separated from the rest of the basement area by a wall but there is sufficient open area at the top of the wall for the residual wet bay heat to keep the rest of the basement warm in all but the worst of conditions. Basement spaces forward of the front wheels and behind the rear axle are not heated except for residual heat from any electronics in those compartments.

Your heat will be AquaHot and you will have a thermostat and heater mounted in the wet bay to keep things nice and toasty. Of course, the AquaHot must be on. Your AquaHot can be run on electric or diesel or both. In really cold temps, run your diesel burner as it supplies the most heat.

Make sure you understand the system before you leave your dealer. There are more questions about Aquahot systems this time of year than there should be.
