Unhappy 2020 Classic 30' - Water Heater

Hello Airstreamers,

I am new to the camping community, so please bear with me. I feel as though I am doing something wrong in regards to the water heater. This is what I am doing when I want hot water: On the Alde screen, I turn on the flame and turn the lightning bolt symbol to "2KW". I get hot water, but if I don't turn these items off when I'm done, after 30 minutes the furnace will kick on and heat starts pumping out. It is the middle of summer. I don't want the heat. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to keep the hot water on that won't kick the furnace on?

I believe you need to make sure the thermostat is set to the lowest level. 41 degrees on ours. That will keep the heating portion of the Alde from kicking in.

I have a 2018 33 Classic. I had a problem with the Alde heater coming on every time I turned on the shower boost. It was a valve failure. Warranty fix. Sorry canít remember the part name.
