Heat question

I have a 2011 Ventana 4375 which has been professionally winterized, unit has propane hydronic heat, my question is can I still run heat on the unit after winterization without damaging anything?

I asked Hydra Hot the same question last year and they said yes. I ran mine all winter while in storage and it's running today as we are camping. Mine is diesel and not propane. Call and ask.

Yes, the pink stuff (if they did the hydronic unit correctly) is in the domestic hot water "coil" inside the furnace. The heating side of the furnace runs an antifreeze solution and can be used independent of the domestic hot water. Just don't connect up to domestic water unless you want to "winterize" again.

Thanks to all for the info, this forum makes being a "Newbie" a lot less stressful.

one more question

I hoped to make it thru the first cold snap in Tucson without full winterization since I am hitting the road in late January. So I gravity drained the water system, but did not run any anti freeze in.I was planning on hooking up to shore power if we get a cold snap and turning on the electric heating elements in the Oasis system..figuring that would radiate enough heat to keep everything from freezing if it only gets to 26-30 degrees for a few hours a day. Question...can I run the system without having any fresh water in the lines?
