Thats really odd thats a cds and a cds really has nothing that could really catch fire no motor or exhaust in the van. I wonder if they were running a propane or diesel burner to boost heat or something? Id be really interested to hear the back story on that photo
Why would someone do insurance fraud unless they had big problems with the machine? Or is that what you were trying to say?
I am a big fan of the CDS. The X drive version I will reserve my opinion until it has 5 years under it's belt.
Only real problem I have had is with the older CDS units is the waste tanks rotting out, and salsa gets plugged up and burns up the blower if not taken out and cleaned every 2k hours.
Bought a 03 4.8 with salsa back in 2012 with bad blower because of plugged up salsa and rebuilt it, waste tank started a leak in 04 so had a replica made and powder coated in a industrial coating. Other than that just a couple floats on the water box have gone bad. Love my 4.8 so much I have a Titan 575 that I picked up 4 months ago that has yet to be put in service.
AC coil cleaner or something really acidic de-scaler works well, if you have a large plastic tote I would actually submerge it then soak it for a few hours then flush it out with a garden hose
I am watching with great interest to see what impact the buyout has on HM's designs, quality, and customer service. I sincerely hope it's positive.The one thing that hasn’t been mentioned here enough is that you can always reach Hydramaster with one call to the technical support line
they are always helpful I have a total of Seven Hydramaster machines in our group and not one of them has been anything but flawless.
To be honest the only reason we have any other machines is cause HydraMaster doesn’t make an Everest !
If they had something comparable I would buy it they also need to update their design and look to stay current and compete
