Aqua Hot Issue

2007 Inspire Siens 360-can some one tell me where the heat exchangers are located & how to get at them. I suspect the fans are not working properly.

I can't, but email Bob Vinson at bob@rcvcustomcoach.com (see RCV Custom Coach Service - Quality Solutions Brought to You). He's a good friend, and we call him our Coach Whisperer because he's always got the answer for us.

I'm not sure I understand the question because the answer should be very simple. On all the coaches I have seen, the heat exchanges and the fans are together behind small grills. The grills are usually mounted on a vertical surface, unlike the forced air systems where they are floor mounted.

The heat exchanges are fed by heater hose running up from the boiler, and they have to be adjacent to the fan. I have one under the bed, one in the bath, two under the kitchen lower cabinets, and one center under the dash.

Exactly, that's the way mine are. I have a Hydro-Hot, but they should be similar. You may have to remove a drawer or lift the bed for access to them but they should be reasonably accessible.

Get your model number and go to this link. Click on "contact me". You can join the forum at no charge and get some help but the "guru" is Roger Berke and he may answer you here or via email. http://rvhydronicheaterrepair.com/

If we understood the question, you should not need Roger to help with this (although he is astonishingly helpful). You should be able to see every one while walking around the coach - except the one tucked away in your storage bay (it is usually near your water tanks).

They have to be visible to work. BTW, the fan and the heat exchanger are often two separate parts. You can replace the fan without changing the exchanger.

The one under our bed quit working. A quick look found that one of the fan wires had come loose from the crimp connector. A new connector and all is well. Apparently the wire had not been all the way in the connector when it was initially installed nine years ago and had taken this long to come loose.
