Welcome to our nice weather!  Where are you staying near Mancos?  We have good friends there and go to the Absolute Bakery all the time.  We spent last night with friends in Pagosa and they actually had a little snow on the ground.  It sounds like your heater is working...just “freight train” noisy?  No water running could easily be not enough in the tank...our 2014/15 model has the 5gal tank inside and under the sink; if yours is newer you might have the 11gal tank outside and therefore more vulnerable to freezing.  With the warm daytime temps here, I’d suggest winterizing...drain the lines and push some pink stuff into them (and drink the vodka...!).  You can run the Alde for heat on propane or electric without water in the lines.  Hope this helps and happy trails!

    Hey DurangoTaB. I am here just outside Durango in Mancos visiting from SoNV. I am having that sooty issue and the ruuuumble. It was rather loud last night. I slept in a house last night and when I came out I noticed the soot. Also, no water is running, (had a small amount in tank for travel). Would I need to bring it in to be checked and if I am already frozen, how would I winterize?? Antifreeze ~vs~vodka? (watched a video about vodka...funny)any help is appreciated.
