In the Barn at last

Since getting the Beasty home, it has been one thing after another. First the Firefly Spyder system threw a fit. Finally got it sort of working and then discovered that the master disconnect switch was faulty. That required a decision between utilizing an automatic version attached to the Firefly system that cost 3x the manual version. Went with the manual version. Next was the Genny coolant cap, came with no o-rings. Luckily our super RV tech carries a variety. Easy fix. Meanwhile we had two very severe storms. The first one soaked the head of the bed. While trying to get things cleaned up and the bladder sorted out, the mystery leak showed up. It soaked the foot of the bed and left a puddle of water on the floor. This one is still a puzzle. Then I noticed that the it was getting chilly outside and went to turn on the Oasis system. Fault, checked levels, called Oasis, told them what was occuring and was told to try the reset button. Lo and behold, it sputtered a bit, caught and turned on for a few seconds. Well, if reset worked once,maybe it would again. Two more resets, no more sputtering and it was working fine. Moving along, While cleaning up the slide for a second time, I noticed that the pump was pressuring the system, then cutting out for less than a minute and starting again. since Jason ( aka super RV tech) was due shortly, I met him with there is water under the manabloc and in the battery bay. It's like a needle in a haystack game with these monster machines. One bay at a time, we circled the coach, Jason was eyeing the bay with the Oasis in it, climbed in and I heard a muffled exclamation, what the heck is going on in here. Turns out that the cold water intake for the Oasis had miniscule crack in it and was spewing a fine mist of water when it was under pressure from either city water or the pump. That part is on order from Oasis.
So, today we took the coach and had our last run. She is now tucked into her slot in the barn awaiting the oasis part. But least she is warm and dry.

Update: the cold water part was shipped and has now been installed completing the Oasis and when the water pump was turned on the pump cycled once, then was quiet. One more major project completed. With a Dec appointment at Mot in Nacogdoches, we may have come to the end of the major problems if they can figure out the bladder problem on the slide. Hopefully I have not just jinxed us.

I sure hope you get to use the coach and go on trips soon. You seem to have way more patients then myself.

These Oasis units seem to have a lot of upkeep and possible problems associated with them. Is there any real advantage to them over just having a normal furnace and hot water tank. These systems have been around forever, and seldom cause trouble. Seems like there is a thread constantly about these Oasis heaters screwing up.
