Advice on winter heating using Aquahot and ?

Hi all:

We have an 04 Tsumani with an Aquahot heating system.

I plan to drive from FL to IN in a few days. I'll be parking it at our place in IN and it will be plugged in. It can get down to zero degrees there.

My questions are: Will the Aquahot be enough to keep everything from freezing or should I add other heat sources? If I add other sources, where should they go? Should I forget this nonsense and just winterize the coach?

It will be there for about a month and then will be headed South again hopefully to a job site. With this in mind, I'd rather not winterize it for just a month.

Thanks for the help!

Ken

If you're going to park it for a month you'll be using quite bit of propane for your Aqua-Hot or is it electric as well? You may want to contact a dealer that sells the Tsunami for some guidance. Here's a link to a review for your coach. It explains some about the Aqua-Hot in the article. You may just want to blow out the lines rather than adding anti-freeze for a short period of time. Good luck! Charlie

Electric/Diesel Aquahot system

Hi Charlie:

Thanks for the help. It's an electric/diesel combo. I'll be right next door in the house to keep an eye on it to make sure the power doesn't trip off and burn up all my diesel.

Glad I could help. That sounds like a nice set up and probably keeps your coach nice and warm. Have a great day! Charlie
