Aqua Hot Floor Heat

I am planning a trip up North and have never used the heat. Did I read correctly that the floor heat is not installed in the bedroom? Want to know what to expect when I use it for the first time. Thanks

My floor heat works in the bedroom. Different model so there could be differences. The only area of flooring that is completely unheated is the hatch access area in our rear bath. Some areas of the floor get warmer than others, but the rest of the floor has heat.

Heat in Bedroom

I have a 2013 Anthem DLQ and there is heat from the Aqua Hot in the Bedroom. I just got back from a trip to Maine and used only the Aqua hot system. It worked really, really well. Set zone 3 to the temp you want and it's perfect.
The only area we didn't really have a lot of heat was the bathroom commode/shower area the sink area had a heat outlet but not the commode area.
One word of caution, it worked so well for us, compared to other RV's we've owned, that we had to adjust the temps quite a bit lower than we were used to as it retains the heat so well. I think we set out bedroom at 67 and it was perfect for us. We tried higher settings and it got to warm for us.
Have a great trip.

BTW on mine the heat outlet is back near the closet/laundry area. If you can I would try it before I started my trip and I would use it exactly like I would use it during the trip. If your not going to have power then I ould try it without power.

That's what among the tops in insulation in the industry will do for you. We saw the same thing last Winter.

My in-floor heat does NOT work in the bedroom. Zone 3 heats the bedroom nicely but it is not the in-floor heat, zone 2 is. My floors are toasty everywhere else but the bedroom. Do I have a flaw, or is that the way they all are?

Some are and some are not depending on when your coach was made, the bedroom floor heat is a relatively new addition to the coaches.

I think I do, but having not operated the system (knowingly), I think I do, but I'll have to wait and see this Winter. I know the sales person told me I did, but I didn't really know about how to operate Zone 2 Gas to make that happen until I read the threads on here this year

Speaking of warm...when are we going to play some golf.

Zone 2 Gas?

Hey Dave,

What do you mean by Zone 2 Gas? I understand Zone 2 activates and controls my in-floor heat, but the gas part I don't get.

Ron.

If you have an aspire the gas setting is propane, on Anthem and Cornerstone the gas setting turns on the aqua-hot

I recently figured it out; "electric" on heat means heat pumps. "Gas" means under-counter vents and Aquahot. Aquahot can be gas (diesel or propane) or electrically heated.
