Unexpected water in heater and battery drain on 19 ft. Serenity AS?

I left the sprinkler on it was hitting the side of the AS before I caught it. The heater is a Hydro Flame furnace by Atwood. I am sure that some water must have gone in the heater exhaust vent on the side of the AS. I can't detect any water even when I slipped a soft string down the out side vent and there does not seem to be any water on the inside. I have not turned it on yet and not sure if I should? Also my batteries seem to drain when the switch is in the power off position. I would appreciate any help. BillbB bbtyrec@cox.net

I doubt that a little water getting into the combustion-air plumbing of the furnace is a big deal, it likely gets condensation in there regularly when a cool night leads into a warm day, for example.

As to the battery drain even when the switch is in the "Store" condition, the LP detector always gets power and will eventually drain the battery. You can take the cable off the negative post of a battery (or install a physical disconnect switch near there) to really disconnect the batteries.

Turn it on to bake the water out of it.

Agree that Perry's idea is sound. Be good to dry it out just in case.
