Hydra hot questions and concerns with winterizing

I have questions concerning winterizing the hydra hot system in my 2002 Newmar Mountain Aire.

1. Am I correct in assuming that I can turn my electric hot water heater element on and produce heat in the basement of my coach? and also in the hydra hot unit itself?

2. Having already winterized the coach with RV anti-freeze is it safe to leave the electric hot water heater on for the heat in the basement?

3. If using the electric hot water heater element is there a way to heat the inside of the coach through that heat source?

Thanks for all your help, I appreciate any comments

1.Yes but it does not produce a lot of BTU's on electric.

2.Yes, no problem.

3.Sure just turn on the heat - it will kick on till it hit's the low temp limit then cut off.

IMHO a good light in the Basement will do as much, maybe more.

If you really want heat just plug in a couple of electric heater, (asuming you are hooked up) or fire it up, the diesel is fine when the unit is winterized.

Best of Luck,
