Engine preheat 06 HR 40PDQ

Where they hide the preheat switch on my 06 40pd? I found something called system heat, but the light does not come on when switch is flipped. Any ideas would be wonderful. Not anywhere ,on the dash either. Thanks, the frozen muffin man.

Do you have a 120 VAC block heater?


Hydronic/Oasis/Aquahot system?


Other?

I assume there is a 120 v.a.c. block heater, no aquahot. I can not find a dangling plug to plug it in. Every Monaco I ever had has a switch. Help.

Our 08' coach has no switch.

You plug the cord into the outlet in the engine bay, and your block heater is on.

Can't help you on where your cord is. Mine is hanging inches away from the outlet.

My 08 Dip has the block heater cord dangling from the ceiling of the electrical hose reel compartment. The 120 VAC outlet is right next to the cable hookup outlet. Roadside rear compartment. You might check there.

What model coach do you have? Rear or side radiator?

You're talking about 2 different systems. The "system heat" is for the wet bay and your holding tanks. The light will only come on when it gets cold enough outside and triggers the snap disc thermostat that is in your wet bay.

The block heater switch on mine is to the left of the driver, labeled "block Heat". Theres a 12 volt relay that will turn the outlet in the engine compartment on. I do have to plug the cord in back in the engine compartment for it to work.

Ditto:

And my "system heat" switch in the hall activates my bay heater but the light does not come on in some setups unless it is activated by the cold.

I guess they ran the block heater cord and outlet into a bay on rear radiator models, and in the engine compartment in side rad coaches.

Exactly my thoughts too. OP profile doesn't say what model he has, or at least I can't find it.

He shows he has a HR 40 PDQ.. that's an Endevour model.. Rear radiation.. The block heater is above the radiator, left side.. Electrical box with a cord hanging next to it.. Mine has no switch.. but it does have a circuit breaker in the electric closet in the rear above the washer.
