Default alde repair southern california

All of the alde service centers in socal, listed on their website, are booked out until next year. Does anyone know of an Alde resource that can work on my Roadtrek Adventurous in socal?

I have a 2015 CS etrek with Alde. I do my own maintenance. What is your issue? Perhaps someone on this site can assist. Dan Neeley sometimes goes down to SOCAL to work on RTs.

The system is heating water but nothing else (floor cabin etc). I'm guessing it's the pump but there is also a leak, because the tank was filled and now it's low.

You may have air in your lines. Check your bleeder valves at each radiator by opening it up till glycol solution escapes. If you had a leak I would expect you would see glycol solution pooling somewhere. Even though the manual states that North American Alde heaters are self bleeding, I have found that sometimes it doesn't always work. Air in the system can block the flow of hot glycol. Good luck.

Default Glycol Soon

https://www.amazon.com/Century-Chemi...HRBJV9XNQ3QFJJ. Here is a link to Century Transfer Fluid on Amazon. Some Solns require dilution. Concentrated form is cheaper.

Sorry, I am in Northern CA near Sacramento. Check with Dan Neely, he sometimes goes to SOCAL and is a mobile repair person who specializes in RTs. He comes highly recommended by many. Contact
