If the A-80 is built like the A-150 w/ a second hear-exchanger then it too can corroded badly due to being difficult to clean internally between seasons.

If ya can't or don't clean it well it will decay to the point of being useless.

There are in this second heat-exchanger several tubes between a top and bottom header that have less than ideal means to get a necessary good cleaning done. Only good awareness and due diligence can keep them from self-destructing from corrosion.
