Hurricane heater expansion tank

Hello I have a 2001 tag axel Country Coach Affinity and I can't find the expansion tank for the hurricane heater system. Does anyone know where I can find it? Also I set the thermostat to furnace, the hydronic fan coils operate but I can't get red or green light on or light on the master control switch.
Any suggestions or ideas?
Thank you

If your Affinity is like my 2000 Magna, there is no expansion tank as the Hurricane uses the engine coolant expansion tank.

On the control box for my Hurricane there is a switch that allows a service rep to operate the furnace without using the interior switches in the coach. Check that switch. Try changing the switch position and see if things work. Don't know if that switch would cause your problems but it is easy to try.

There are two circuit breakers on the control box for the Hurricane or that's what my electrical diagrams say. Also there is a 7.5 amp fuse that goes to the central heat control switch. That fuse is on the domestic fuse panel in the electrical bay in front of and accessible through the first bay on my coach.

Let us know what you try or better yet, what you did that fixed the problem.

I don't know about the latch but you can try calling Kevin Waite in Oregon at 541.953.6162. He used to work for Country Coach and now is in the RV service business.

Hurricane heater

Thanks again, the fix was this. The dip switches were not set on the ac units to furnace. There is an on and off switch on the control panel that is not were you can see it because of the way it is mounted.the oil filter is tight up against it allso. I can barely get my one finger in to work the switch.now thanks to your info it's all good. I'm doing an upgrade on some internal parts ( 1100.$)from the hurricane pepole
