Aqua Hot

I知 trying to use my Aqua Hot floor heat to see if it works before I take my MH in for the punch list repairs and not sure if I知 even doing it right. The Aqua Hot works for the water heater but so far the floor heat doesn稚 seem to work (I just turned it on this morning). I have it set on electric (let the CG pay for it) and have both the front and back turned on. I also turned on the floor heat button on the control panel and set it to schedule, set on 7 for the mornings and 3 in the evening. I知 not sure how long it takes before it starts to warm up or if I知 even doing it right. I did roll up my 途uggable rug in the living area so more tile is exposed for the heat to come thru, not sure if I even have to do that or not.

One last thing, there is a toggle switch in the back bathroom that says 滴eater, but not sure what that does. I don稚 see any separate heater in the bathroom, but I have it turned on for now to see if it does anything.

Thanks for any help.

I don't believe that you will be able to heat the floors on electric only. I have found that I need to have it on diesel and set the temp 10 to 15 degrees above the set temp for everything else.

Floor heat also takes a few hours to come up to temp. Use the diesel burner to get started, then switch back to electric.

Sorry, the make and model is in my signature and didn稚 really think I needed to put it in again.

It痴 a 2019 Fleetwood Discovery LXE 40M.

Sine the outside temp it starting to warm up I will see if the floors are warmer tomorrow morning since I have it on a schedule. If not I will try putting it on diesel to see if that does anything.

Disregard the advice above, you don’t have aqua hot floors. You have electric heat in the floors. Turn on the floor heat, select “manual” then select the heat level, mine comes on at 6, wait half hour and you should have heat. After you know the floor heat works, then you can play with the schedule settings if you want.
Your aqua hot has two thermostats, front with 3 heaters, and rear with 2 heaters. One rear heater is under the bed, the other in the bathroom. That switch turns the bathroom heater off just in case you’re getting out of a hot shower and don’t want any additional heat in the bathroom for a while. Also check the thermostat settings on the two basement heaters.
Your aqua hot on electric is a 1600 watt heater which is about 5000 btu’s. Don’t expect any more heat out of it than you get from any 1500 watt plug-in electric heater. If you’re heating the coach, the coach may take enough heat that there won’t be enough hot water for a shower.
The aqua hot on diesel is a 65000 btu heater, if that won’t heat everything, you need to go south.
You may prefer to just go electric and add some additional stand alone 1500 watt heaters. We have the heaters from the last coach so we still use them.
If you want it to drive better, you need to get the alignment set so you have about 3/4” to 1” of trail. In order to do that on the size of tires you have, you need to set the left caster at 2* and the right at 2.5*. Just got mine done in Sept. and this is the fourth coach I set up this way. My final setting was 2.3 and 2.6, the factory setting is OK for toe and camber.
