Oasis Hydronic Heating System

Has anyone had experience or problems with the diesel Oasis hydronic heating system? We would like more information from someone who is personally using the system rather than only the information we find on the Oasis web site. Thanks.

G'morning from Casa Grande, AZ. Don't know what happened to Arizona, but,'s bouncing below freezing at night. No snow here yet, but areas up around 3,000 ft are seemingly ALL gettin snow...from heavy to a dusting.

We had a Hydro/Aqua Hot unit in our former RV, a 40 ft. (06 model) pusher, but now have an Oasis in our current (08 model) rig. We're real full timers so do get opportunities to need the furnace from time to currently here in Casa Grande.

Anyway, we really like our Oasis unit and have found it to be significantly quieter than our previous Hydro-Hot, and it burns cleaner also. We'd certainly recommend the Oasis.

Thanks for the reply. We are in the process of looking at new 2011 Dutch Stars and need the input before we order, if we decide to go that route. We are so happy with our current Dutch Star that we are still researching the newest technology.
We are also fulltimers in FL and it has finally warmed up to the mid-70's. Stay warm in AZ.

Pgc. We have diesel 2010 Dutch Aire. We like it because we.don't have to refill lp as often. Pretty quiet too. We use heating elements (I have 2) for.most milder days when we want hot water and a little.heat. Check Lees.rv website in Oklahoma City for theirf Dutch Stars with diesel oasis heat. Good dealer.

PGC- Thanks for asking that question. I have been pondering the same thing. I'm shopping for a DP and the Duch Star is one at the top of the list. I'm also wondering about the comfort drive and it's advantages. haven't had the chance to drive one yet here in Michigan. Any idea about the diesel consumption vs. gas?

Comfort drive is great. Where you will like it most is when you have a strong side wind. It's high on the list of desired.features. Other things we really like are the power latch locks on storage.compartments and.keyless entry. Send me pm if you'd like to visit.

We have the Oasis system in our Mandalay -- one year so far, no problems, and the system is awesome! Would never go back to a propane furnace. Love the heat, endless hot water, and the fact that it runs off our 150-gallon diesel tank. Nice to have the engine heat loop too -- the Oasis can preheat the engine, and once the engine is warmed up, it returns the favor.

Fuel oil (diesel) fueled heating units must be completely cleaned at least once a year by someone who really knows what they are doing. The unit must be taken apart to completely brush (wire brush) and vacuum the fire chamber and flue passages and clean and adjust to factory specs the nozzle/ignition assembly.
I know about stinking oil. I worked at plumbing and heating for 50 years. I have a gas truck because of it.
