Mine did the same thing. The first few times we used it, the front burner under the dash, filled the coach with a haze. I tried to access the unit, but you have pull the dash to remove and work on it. I ended up pulling the metal trim along the floor so I could actually see the blower. I saw some paper that looked like the backing to some thin two sided tape stuck near the radiator portion of the unit. I used a vacuum and air hose to get the paper out.

The unit still produced a haze in the coach. Eventually, I just let it run, keeping an eye on it, to burn off whatever was creating the haze/smoke. It eventually cleared up after an hour or so of running the Oasis.

Mine did and will slightly every year when first turned on burning the dust and whatever else might be on the heat exchangers.

Thanks. I figured that could be what it was. I will get it going again and pay attention to it underneath. I did talk to Newmar After I posted here and they had never heard of this. However Newmar got Oasis on the phone and they seemed to agree with you guys as long as there was no evidence of A leak or smell of antifreeze .

….interesting--a hot fluid radiator ""burning off the dust' in the front heater"--think I would like to see that one....does sound more like a fluid leak.....not questioning anything, just like to see how that works??[smile]

Not dust, itís the the machining reside (chemicals used at time of manufacturing) that heat up and vaporize. If it keeps happening, or has a radiator fluid smell you may want to have it checked.

I will post my findings and also watch the fluid levels . One of the guys at the campground said it happened to him to. Iím thinking if the dealer truly runs the system they probably burn it off during that test before delivery. We all know how thorough the dealers are. LoL . Time will tell.

It's just a burn off of debris and residue. Once it runs a few times, it disappears. It's not a leak.
