2022 Fleetwood Frontier Aqua Hot placement issues
We have had our 2022 Frontier 36SS for 8 months now. Had a few warranty issues that Fleetwood has resolved. This week while traveling to AZ for the winter we encountered a pretty bad rainstorm. After this the Aqua Hot failed to start and run and burned the fuse in the Illumaplex console.
Aqua Hot service found that water had been thrown up from the front tire into the vent in the Aqua Hot box since it sits less than two feet behind the tire on the bottom of the coach. Tech suggested a longer mud flap but even that won’t keep spray from going into the unit. The Aqua Hot has to have an open vent on the boiler burner box when running.
So I guess I’ll need to create a cover for travel that will need to be removed before using the aqua hot. Sending all the info to Fleetwood for warranty coverage so we’ll see what happens.
Anyone else have this issue? Seems like a bad design choice and poor location of the Aqua Hot. Given the potential for water intrusion.
