SECTION 1: OVERVIEW
Hydro-Hot
Overview
1.0 Activating the Hydro-Hot Heating System
The Hydro-Hot Heating System is an on-board Hydronic Heating System
(heating with hot water) that provides a continuous, on-demand supply of
domestic hot water, as well as interior zone heating where and when it is
needed. Both heating features are accomplished by a unique VDC-Powered
Diesel-Fired Burner and a VAC-Powered Electric Heating Element (120 VAC).
These two heating sources maintain the temperature of the Hydro-Hot's
solution of water and antifreeze. In addition, the Hydro-Hot has been designed
to preheat the vehicle's engine prior to starting (HHE-200 Model Only). This
preheat feature provides an easy engine start-up whenever cool weather
conditions are present. Be sure to review Figure 1A and 1B for complete
component overview.
NOTE: This Hydro-Hot product utilizes a Propylene Glycol (P.G.) based
water and antifreeze solution. This P.G. based solution is a Boiler type
antifreeze, which is Generally Recognized as Safe (“GRAS”) by the FDA.
For additional information regarding this GRAS antifreeze product, please

Sources
Please read the complete Owner’s Manual prior to operating your
Hydro-Hot Heating System. Also, be sure to fill out and mail in your
Owner’s Information Card located at the front of this manual.
2.1 Activating the Hydro-Hot Heating System
Diesel-Burner
Turn the Diesel switch ON, reference Figure 2. This procedure will
activate the Diesel-Burner and the indicator light located on the Diesel
switch. Allow 10-20 minutes for the Hydro-Hot System to reach operating
temperature. Please note that the Diesel-Burner is the primary heat
source for heating both the interior and the domestic hot water (such as
when cool ambient temperatures exist and/or when there is a high demand for domestic hot water).
NOTE: The “Diesel” switch can also be used to reset a 12 Volt-DC Low
Voltage fault. Please reference Section 5.
Electric Heating Element
Turn the Electric switch ON, reference Figure 2. This procedure will
activate the 120 VAC Electric Heating Element and the indicator light
located on the Electric switch. Allow 1-2 hours for the Hydro-Hot System
to reach operating temperature.
Also, please note that the Electric Heating Element is a secondary heat
source for heating both the interior and the domestic hot water during low
heating demand situations (such as when moderate ambient temperatures exist and/or when there is a low demand for domestic hot water).

SECTION 2: OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Heat
Sources,
continued
Comfort
Control
NOTE: Both the Diesel-Burner and the Electric Heating Element are
thermostatically controlled. Either, or both, heating sources will
automatically maintain the temperature of the Hydro-Hot's water and
antifreeze solution between approximately 160-190 (+/- 5) degrees
Fahrenheit. So to heat your motorhome / domestic hot water, simply
choose the desired heat source(s) and leave the switch(s) (i.e. Diesel
and/or Electric) ON.
2.2 Zone Thermostat(s) Operation
Interior Room Thermostats
Simply adjust each Interior Room Thermostat to the desired temperature.
Then whenever an Interior Room Thermostat “calls-for-heat”, the HydroHot’s Circulation Pump(s) and Interior Heat Exchanger Fans will be
activated. These devices together will supply warmth and comfort to each
interior heating zone. Please contact your specific motorhome
manufacturer for the exact location of the Interior Room Thermostat(s).
Fresh Water Tank Thermostat
Simply adjust the Thermostat (i.e. Bay Heating) to approximately 40
degrees Fahrenheit. This will prevent freezing of the domestic water
storage system. Please contact your specific motorhome manufacturer
for the exact location of the Fresh Water Tank Thermostat.
Hot Water
2.3 Using the Domestic Hot Water System
When the Hydro-Hot is at operating temperature, the domestic water is
automatically heated as it is being used. Because the Hydro-Hot does not
store any hot water, simply open any hot water faucet and a continuous
supply of domestic hot water will be present within a few seconds. This
hot water feature is continuous and is accomplished by the Hydro-Hot’s
Domestic Hot Water Heating System. Please note that the Diesel
switch must be ON to get an unlimited supply of hot water (i.e. during
showers).

Engine
Preheat
NOTE: The Hydro-Hot’s “Domestic Water Priority System” disables
the interior Zone Heating Fans, Zone Circulation Pumps, and the
Engine Preheat Pump (if applicable) whenever domestic hot water is
being used on a continuous basis (i.e. during showers). Once the
demand for continuous domestic hot water ceases the Hydro-Hot
will enable the Fans and Pumps to operate and provide heat to the
Heating Zones. Please note that the Electronic Controller’s Low
Temperature Cuttoff Status indicator light will illuminate GREEN
whenever the Hydro-Hot is able to provide zone heating, reference
Figure 5.
2.4 Using the Engine Preheat System
Engine Preheat (HHE-200 Model Only)
When the Hydro-Hot is at operating temperature, and the Diesel-Burner
and/or the 120 VAC Electric Heating Element switch is ON, follow these
simple instructions:
A. Turn the Hydro-Hot's Engine Preheat switch ON, reference Figure 2.
This procedure will activate the Engine Preheat Circulation Pump and
circulate the engine's coolant through the Engine Preheat System.
This feature will adequately warm the engine for easy start-ups on
cool mornings.
NOTE: Allow approximately 1 to 2 hours of engine preheating run time.
Preheat duration will be shortest when the Diesel switch is ON.
B. Turn OFF the Aqua-Hot's Engine Preheat switch whenever engine
preheating is not desired.
NOTE: The Hydro-Hot's Engine Preheating System acts as a supplemental heating source, in addition to the Diesel-Burner and the Electric
Heating Element. While traveling, the engine's heated coolant will automatically pass through the Engine Preheat / Motoraide System, transferring heat into the Hydro-Hot's Boiler Tank. This design feature reduces the
total operating hours of the Diesel-Burner and the Electric Heating Element.

NOTE:
The Diesel switch’s
Indicator Light will
illuminate (reference
Figure 4), while the
Heating Status and
Diesel-Burner Status
lights illuminate on the
Electronic Controller,
reference Figure 5.
The Motor (#2), which
turns the Combustion
Air Blower (#5) and
drives the Fuel Pump
(#14), will begin to
operate.
NOTE:
If the Hydro-Hot’s
coolant temperature is
approximately 190 (+/- 5)
degrees fahrenheit, or
higher, the Motor (#2)
will not operate. Only
when the coolant
temperature has
dropped below 160
(+/- 5) degrees
fahrenheit, and the VDC
/ VAC Control
Thermostat is calling for
heat, will the Motor (#2)
begin to operate.
After approximately 10 - 25
seconds, the Fuel
Solenoid (#6) opens and
fuel is sprayed into the
Combustion Chamber
(#11) through the Fuel
Nozzle (#9).
Hydro-Hot ® Hydronic Heating System Owner’s Manual 08/04
Simultaneously the
Ignition Coil (#3)
produces a high voltage
spark across the Ignition
Electrodes (#8), which
ignites the incoming
air-fuel mixture.
Once the ignited air-fuel
mixture (FLAME) is
observed by the Flame
Sensor (#13), the Ignition
Coil (#3) will automatically
switch OFF. The

2.6 Diesel-Burner Operational Flow-Chart, continued
The combustion process will
continue to operate in this
manner until one of the following
take’s place:
A.) The VDC / VAC Control
Thermostat, which senses
coolant temperature, reaches the
preset temperature of
approximately 190 (+/- 5)
degrees fahrenheit.
NOTE:
If process "A" occurs, the
Heating Status and DieselBurner Status lights on the
Electronic Controller will go
OFF, reference Figure 5.
B.) The Hydro-Hot’s Diesel
switch is turned OFF.
NOTE:
If process "B" occurs, the Diesel
switch’s Indicator Light, on the
Switch Panel (reference Figure
2), will go OFF along with the
Heating Status and DieselBurner Status lights on the

Figure 5.
Important
Information
Once the heater switches
OFF, thermostatically or
manually, the Fuel
Solenoid (#6) closes,
which interrupts the supply
of diesel fuel to the Fuel
Nozzle (#9).
The Motor (#2) will
continue to run for
approximately three (3)
additional minutes. This
process is refered to as
the purge-cycle, which
cools down the heater’s
internal components
and purges the
Combustion Chamber
(#11) of any residual
exhaust gases.
NOTE:
When the Hydro-Hot’s
Diesel-Burner is switched
OFF, by the VDC / VAC
Control Thermostat, the
following process will take
place:
1.) The Motor (#2) will
shut-off once the three (3)
minute purge-cycle has
expired.
-THEN2.) The Hydro-Hot’s
Diesel-Burner will
automatically turn back ON
once the coolant
temperature reaches the
preset temperature of
approximately 160 (+/- 5)
degrees fahrenheit.
SUMMARY:
The Hydro-Hot’s DieselBurner is in stand-by
mode anytime the operator
activates the Diesel switch
(reference Figure 2) to the
ON position. The DieselBurner will then
automatically ignite and
maintain the coolant
temperature in the HydroHot’s Boiler Tank without
additional involvement
from the operator.
2.7 Precautions
WARNINGS:
• The Hydro-Hot's Exhaust is HOT!

1. The Hydro-Hot is off due to an electrical overload (i.e. short) in the main
VDC power supply circuitry.
2. The Hydro-Hot is off due to a combination of high electrical VDC power
loads and a high surface temperature of the Electronic Controller.
The Hydro-Hot will automatically restart once the electrical overload (i.e.
short) and/or high heat condition is corrected.
Heating Zones Status Indicator Lights:
These five indicator lights (separately) will illuminate GREEN whenever a
Zone Thermostat, for each particular zone, is calling for heat. The GREEN
indicator lights also indicate that VDC power is being supplied to the particular
interior heating zone’s Heat Exchangers (i.e. fan motors). If any of the five
indicator lights illuminate RED, it indicates that an electrical overload condition
(i.e. short) has occurred in a particular heating zone’s circuitry.
NOTE: A short in either a heating zone’s Interior Room Thermostat or
heating zone’s Heat Exchanger circuit, will cause the indicator light to
illuminate RED.
Pumps #1, #2, and #3 Indicator Lights:
These indicator lights (separately) will illuminate GREEN whenever a
Circulation Pump is operating. If any of the three indicator lights illuminate
RED, it indicates that an electrical overload condition (i.e. short) has occurred
in the particular component’s circuitry.
NOTE: The Zone Circulation Pumps #1 and #2 are activated whenever a
