Floor heat?

Our new 2022 Reatta XL 40q2. The floor between the shower and the sink stays warm all the time whether the floor heat is on or not. Donít know if this is normal or not. The rest of the loops donít seem to stay warm without the floor heat on. Any thoughts on whether this is an issue or not?

Floor heat in the Reatta XL is electric and only one 'zone'. In the smaller areas like the are you describe they do heat up faster. And yes if the floors are not on the tile does get cool probably more quickly then their 'big brothers' this would be to the thicker floor construction used in the Aspire/Anthem/Cornerstone.
We find the residual heat of the engine keeps the back bath floor warm for a long time after stopping and when you turn the floor heat off that area also stays warmer longer. My guess is their may be a structural difference in floor construction to support the access hatch.
However, you can perform a continuity check of the floor heat to make sure the electricity is not shorting out on a nick in the floor heat wiring grid. I expect the selling dealer can knock that out.
We had a nick in the floor heat wire initially also but that was quickly found an corrected (yes by LazyDays....) although our symptom there was the floor heat AC breaker was tripping when the floors were turned on.
In general the electric floors take about 2.5 to 3 hours to get to a temp that is comfortable.

Where is your AquaHot physically located? Is it possible that what you're experiencing is heat transfer through the floor from the warm AquaHot whenever it's running.

Take care,
Stu

I thought about that but the Aqua hot is much further towards the front. Engine could be off for 24 hrs yet the floor is warm. Don’t think it’s residual engine heat.

I had a problem on mine like that. I started checking into the wiring and found where they had wired one section incorrectly and had bypassed the switch. It is easy to do if you get sidetracked. Connected the wires correctly and problem fixed.
