Found out on another forum that the Hydro Hot can be run on both electric and diesel at the same time.

I tried it and the diesel seems to kick in less often with the electric on too. I use the Hydro Hot a lot at night because it heats so well, hopefully it will use less diesel now.

I have hydro-hot system in my coach and I use the 110 volt most of the time, if if electric is a strong 20 amp. or better, warms coach fine if outside temp is over 45 degrees. If it's colder than that I switch on the boiler. The bioler heats faster and provides better heat. The 110 volt element is only 1560 watts and hot water takes priority. I use 110 for hot water whenever possible, but be sure to fire up boiler at least every 2 weeks to keep everthing ready when needed.

Be sure to change oil filter every year along with nozzle and electrodes.

I think if more coaches are ordered with hydro-hot or it's big brothers the cost will come down.

I think propane and diesel are the same price now and we already have diesel aboard.Propane jusst for refrige and cooking.

Thanks for now------ AJBJRVERS
