Partially winterized running aquahot

I missed running antifreeze thru my fridge, dishwasher and washer when I winterized. When my coach is in storage it is protected on 3 sides but is in the drive and open to the wind and temps are getting down to the mid teens tonight. I set zone 2 to 45 and basement heat on then it hit me that the Aquahot is heating antifreeze in the plumbing rather than water. I assume that isn't an issue but........

My option is to put a space heater in the kitchen.

Does anyone know if I'm creating a problem?

Vance,
If you are going to use a space heater to keep the water lines and the pumps in the appliances warm....open the doors of the appliances so the heat can get to the lines easier. I don't know if a space heater will get enough heat in there with the temps getting into the teens. I hope you mean you are going to run the AH at well. The more heat the better as those water lines are in the rear of the appliances and on outside walls.

I sure wish you would have thrown some air in those lines before pumping antifreeze. I also wish I was there to give you a hand.

turn zone 2 off, turn zone 1 to gas turn zone 3 to gas turn on aqua hot burner switch kill all other breakers except inverters, turn down inverters to 15 amps plug in to 20 amps if you can set generator to auto. if you cant get a plug in don't worry the genny in auto will take care of everything make damn sure the basement heat is on by pulling the top switch towards you I would set zone 1 and 3 to about 55 or 60 but that's me in the day you can then drop it down if you like. even turn the master t the panel lights off you will be golden

I Have just been through the same til I got unpacked and got it to the airport hanger now its 68 degrees in there. Oh by the way Jacob from entegras step by step instructions. I see you must have electricity for space heater even 15 amp plug will run it all if you do like I said use a thick extension cord

Jacob gave me the scheme of Zone 2 to 40-45 but didn't say anything about the antifreeze in the plumbing. I do have it plugged in to household power.

Right now it is 27 outside, house shows 34 degrees, basement 37 and Zone 2 48. I haven't had Zone 2 on very long.

It's 21 outside right now, coldest is coming at about 8:00. I haven't been out yet it will go shortly. When I went to bed it was all holding well in the mid 30s with mid 20s outside.

When I went out the outside temp was 20, basement was 27, coach interior was 33 and Zone 2 was 48 (set to 45).

I think my basement heat switch is backwards, I think on is inboard. It worked well during our last trip, kept the basement in mid to high 50s with the switch inboard though that was when we had all zones heating. Jacob said on is outboard so I moved it, I don't think it's working.

I made a startling discovery, it works much better when the temperature setting is above full off!

Johnny - I agree, on to the right is more logical to me but then I tried to heat with the setting all the way down!
