Basement Heating

I have an 08 Dynasty with an Aqua-Hot system. How can I tell if it heats the basement compartments? Is there a thermostat somewhere in the basement that I have not found. I have not been in an area where it has been a concern, but it is something I need to know.

Thanks..... I appreciate your input.

On my 08 Camelot there is a 12 VDC heater in the wet bay with the thermostat being on the curb side of that bay. It comes on at 45 and goes off at 55 degrees. The snap disk for that heater is on the underside of the wet bay front panel. My Aqua-Hot is on the curb side front compartment close to the fresh water tank so that stays warm. Some floor plans have a heat duct directed to the fresh water tank when the water tank and Aqua_hot are in separate bays. I check the temp of the wet bay with the Aladdin system which I feel is reasonably accurate.

Look inside your grey/black water tanks and see if you find a copper looking bulb attached to a solid wire. Follow the wire through to the next compartment (usually the water pump/ water filters). There should be a small open metal box with a black knob on it. Look closely at the dial and see what temperature it is set at. Also do a search on Aquahot and you will find out how it works. Your coach should have two wall mounted thermostats (one in bedroom and one in hallway/kitchen area maybe). The bedroom thermostat should have two zones and the hallway should have one zone. The mode button will put you into the "furnace" setting. Once the aquahot is turned on, the basement thermostat (metal box with black knob) will determine when heat is called for. Unless I am mistaken, you definitely have basement heat with the aquahot and the temp. can be set up to 50 degrees I think. Factory setting is around 40 -45 according to what I have read. I also put a small thermometer in the holding tank bay and compared it with the outside temperature to make sure I was getting heat.
