Simple Question about Oasis heat - 2017 DS 4369

I have a 2017 Dutch Star 4369. I am in Texas and plan to store our coach inside while plugged into 30 amp electric.

I plan to leave one zone of the Oasis electric heat on and set at a low temperature to protect the coach from the possiblity of freezing temperatures. I asked Newmar this question and got no answer.

On what Oasis heat zone is the wet bay?

Simple Question about Oasis heat - 2017 DS 4369

Wet bay is on zone 3.

Although I’d leave both zones on and set to temp to 50.

Wet bay is independent of internal temp as the sensor is in the wet bay and will come on approx 45 degrees. With ac element 1 on.

The wet bay is independent of your zone settings, so you could leave them off if you want. As long as you have the Oasis on and your AC on 1 you will be fine. But I agree that having both Zones set to 50 is optimum, which is what I currently have. But I do have 50 amps so can have my heater set on 2.

Thanks for the answers. I don't know why Newmar Customer Support could not have told me that.

Just the answer I was looking for!

Owners that post “absolute” answers need to preface their comments with “on my coach”. The Oasis control system has undergone several safety activation changes that requires owner to do things differently than was the practice in earlier year coaches.

The way described worked the same on my 2013 and 2019 dutch stars. How does it operate now on the 2022 with the Chinook?

This is correct. Oasis told me something similar.

The wet bay register activates at 40F as long as either the Oasis burner is on or AC1 or 2 is on. There is no other control for this. The wet bay register has nothing to do with the Dometic wall thermostat.

It may not be a good idea to have the oasis on while is in storage unless of course it’s your own, my storage facility prohibits, besides on electric your oasis useless on heating the basement it’s ok for hot water.

We use the Oasis electric all the time for heating the coach. We are very happy the way it works. When it gets close to freezing, early morning or when we are taking showers, we will turn on the oil burner. The two Oasis elements equal 3000 watts or 10,000 btu. Plenty of heat to keep the coach from freezing. It will also spin the electric meters very quickly, the reason storage places don't want you to use them.

Question: Are the two Oasis electric heating elements (AC1 & AC2) too much for 30 amp electric?

Or, should I use only AC1 when in storage?

Yes. Both elements on will draw about 26 amps, which doesn’t leave much for refrigerator or charging batteries……also if the 30 amp breaker is weak, the constant amp draw will probably trip.

It might work for awhile….. but to be safe I think you would be better with just using AC1

This thread certainly clarified several questions I've always had about Oasis heating and the wet compartment heater.
