There's an old thread about the Aqua Hot fluid and as I remember the same "pink" vs "green" discussion was bounced around. The Camco Aqua Hot fluid is pink and is compatable. One owner said the green was generally only available in bulk (55gal) for home heating systems. I'm not sure anybody had a quick an easy way to buy 1-2 gals of the green unless you hookup with a home heating company. I'm thinking that'd be hard in Florida unless somebody like Lazy Days buys it in big drums.

Aqua Hot Fluid Level

This is our first experience with an Aqua Hot system. My husband and I have a difference of opinion: I say the Fluid level should be at the "Hot" Level and we should fill it up as it is used. Even if we are not using the hot water, the fluid should be at the "hot" line. He says that if we are using it then it should be at the "hot" level line and if it is off and we are not using the hot water, that the fluid should be at the "Cold" line. What is the correct amount of fluid we should have. Thanks.

The fluid level should be at HOT and the unit running at full temp when you check it. See the owners manual at http://www.aquahot.com/eSource/ecom/...ers_Manual.pdf. Check page 13.

The "hot" level could be marked "maximum" and the "cold" level could be marked "minimum". When the unit is turned on either electric or burner, and at operating temperature then the fluid level should be up toward the hot mark. When the unit is turned off and cool the fluid level should drop down toward the cold mark. Just keep the fluid level between the two marks and all will be well.

Technically I know the coach can handle it but: 1) I'll have no access to water replenishment for 3 days with such extreme temperatures. 2) Since I'm running a propane Aqua Hot I'll be going through gas like crazy! Have any of you dealt with this kind situation before? Is it worth fighting the elements AND trying to work a tradeshow during the day or should I just "throw in the towel", safely store the coach for 3 days, and get a hotel room? Thanks for any opinions on this!
Sorry....didn't mean to high jack your thread....

Cold temps....first....turn on your Basement heat! If it's frigid set it midrange to keep the basement thawed.
Then flip both electric and burner switches and set temp zone 1 & 3 mode to gas and temp to 70. Set Zone 2 to 85 in til the floor heats up.
