Oasis Boiler ?

My son is on his way from WI to AZ in his new 2015 45' Mountain Aire. This morning in Albert Lea it was -16*. It took awhile to thaw out the ice formed on the windshield, but they made it to Wichita, KS. Last night they had to start the generator to turn on the floor heat to keep the inside temp in the upper 60's. Today, the Oasis boiler would shut down after an hour on the road. He could then restart it and it would run for an hour or two before shutting off. It was very windy. Is that a normal thing for the Oasis system. We have the aqua Hot in our Allegro Bus and it never shuts off while driving. Any Suggestions???

Hi Crasher. Sorry to hear your having a few issues with your Oasis system.

I can help diagnose the Oasis issue for you but I need to know what the LED's on the front of the Boiler itself and the Zone Control boards are showing when it does shut down. (Both in the basement together.) Also, do either of the red led's light up on the remote when it shuts down? If so, which one?

The Oasis should not be shutting off while driving and I am curious what the lights are saying when it does kick out.

To help out further for your sons Oasis, here is a link to describe the Oasis system you will find more information in DutchStar Don's Mod section in QT's # 3.
The indicator lights will show up in this link.
Your son will have plenty of heat once the Oasis is functioning correctly he needs the heat for his holding tank area so no plumbing freeze ups.

It would be easier if you son could communicate with BrooksW on line.

Oh boy, does this sound familiar!

We went through the exact same thing for over a year. First troubleshooting round they found a bad/intermittent flame sensor that was causing the flame out. Worked for less than a month then started doing the same thing...diesel burner would run for a while then fault with a flame out. Troubleshooting began agin with Newmar and Oasis with everyone scratching their heads because the flame sensor had been changed. Over the course of a year we tried everything, including running the unit off of an external fuel tank, nothing worked. Finally I told Newmar and Oasis that I was going to demand that they completely replace the system. Oasis wanted to try the "shotgun" troubleshooting technique first (throw parts at it until it works). The sent me a set of every replaceable component for the system. First part I replaced was the flame sensor, since it is the easiest to change.....fixed it right up, no problems in the last year.

Long story short....I'd have him replace the flame sensor, it's easy to do.

We've only had ours flame out once, driving across KS as well. 40 mph winds and a big(ger) gust hit us at just the right angle. Reset and all has been fine since. That was a great many hours ago.

I would agree to have them replace flame sensor. AND CALL Oasis, I found their customer service to be awesome.
