A new gizmo something found in wet bay?

Yearly sanitizing of the water tank/lines and filter maintenance too.

Openning the valves to drain the water tank, I noticed an electronic looking switch to the left/front of the coach. This is inside the smaller velcro attached access door. Never had noticed it before, and wondering if it has to do with changing the temperatures inside of the water bay/tank area. It has a black rotary knob on it.

Besides being surprised that after about 7 years of owning the coach that I had never noticed it - now I'm wondering what it is and how it functions!

(And of course, our CC folders of documentation, are in storage...)

TIA for any info, and best to all,
Smitty

Yes - rheostat temperature dial - controls plumbing bay heatilator. There is also a thermocouple which measures the temperature.

Here is mine.

Smitty,
Not sure what it's called, but I think your talking about the temperature dial for the wet bay that goes to your Hurricane heater.
If the main Hurricane switch is on then it will automatically turn on when the temp falls below what is set on that dial to keep the wet bay from freezing.

Well now, something else to experiment with! (Setting must currently be good, as we've been in below 10 degrees for extended periods of time without problems.)

Brain, that picture is what mine is, including the mentioned thermocouple by Bret.

I'll play with it some, to see if I can determine if it is still working correctly.

Best to you both,
Smitty

Learned about this by accident. All of a sudden the Hurricane kicks on when I knew everything inside was turned off. Thought I had a ghost living inside, and was just trying to keep warm.

I read the way to calibrate was to have a glass of ice water, put the thermocouple in it and adjust the rheostat until the Hurricane comes on.

I've never touched mine in 16 years. Wow, 16 years and I'm still ticking. Wait, I mean the coach is still running great
