Hi, New 2021 All Electric Renegade Verona 36VSB owner. First night stay in Coach in Colorado with 30F low last night. 50A plugin at my house so a good test run with little stress.
RV stayed very comfortable (69F) last night. Did use one 750W panel heater and one 750W oil heater in front and bedroom just to keep AquaHot (diesel and electric) from kicking on/off all last night for inside the coach. Heat pump were set to "on" but it looks like coach was smart enough not to kick those on at such a low temperature.
I set the "bay" temerature to 55F. The electric panel and oil heater kept the coach warm enough that the AquaHot never kicked on for the interior. Aquahot diesel did kick on every 15-30 minutes to warm the plumbing bay. Would have been a pretty quiet night at 30F except for AH working to heat the plumbing bay.
Or maybe I am setting bay temperature too high. It would be nice to just have electric AH running bay heat rather than diesel usage and noise.
Any suggestions on temperature setting for bay to not have diesel kick in?
Do any of you use a small electric bulb heater (AKA reptile heater), electric strip heater or maybe ceramic heater with a thermostat (see amazon link below)?
Thank you for your time in advance!
