Aqua Hot Bay heat

My manual says the thermostat in the basement passenger bay needs the aquahot system on to operate.

I turned on the Aquahot electric element because the coach is plugged in to 50 amps.
I set the basement thermostat to 50 degrees.

So is there an exchanger in the basement or should I turn the thermostat in the coach on for circulation?

Also what turns on the small electric heater in the water bay?
I find no switch called "system heat" as other posts have described.

The system heat switch on our 04 Imperial is on the panel over the front entry door along with a water pump switch. The AH has to be hot to to keep the bay warm. Mine has a heat exchanger in the zone 2 loop, which is the stir pump line as well as zone 2 heat and the bay heat. My heat exchanger in the bay part of the loop is on the ceiling of the water pump bay where the inverter, water filter unit and manabloc valves are. If your coach has the cold weather pkg the water tank has heaters on it that operate when the temp drops to a certain point and the system heat switch is on. In the water hookup and sewer dump valve bay there is a small 12vdc heater to keep that area from freezing. There is a snap thermostat there that operates either that heater or the AQuahot heater in the other small bay. I could be wrong about what operates what because I got the schematics for the circuits years ago and discovered a lot of things miswired. In my case the heater in the sewer and water bay failed and I simply unpluged it and removed it with no ill effect. If you are parked and the temps are below freezing for extended periods of time I would make sure all these systems are working. There are many posts here and elsewhere dealing ith this subject, do a search.

Mine has a thermostat and heat exchanger in the wet bay. I just turn on the AquaHot burner (wish I had a 50 amp circuit at home) and set the house thermostat to gas (actually diesel) and the temp as low as it'll go (45° in my case).
I do have a remote thermometer in the bay as well as one near the pipes under the sink that I can read from the stick house.
