So I took a look at the Thetford SaniCon video, but it isn't clear to me how you flush your tanks after emptying them. Wouldn't you still need your old hoses?

Assuming you have a San-T-Flush system you use it exactly the same way as normal. You connect a hose to the external San-T-Flush inlet and flush your black water tank as per usual. Then use the SaniCon system to empty the black water tank.

No its not legal to have red to the front of the vehicle. If there small enough though it may not stand out

When I went looking for a new motorhome, I had the dealer bring in the slide outs so I could seat in the drivers seat and make sure I was comfortable. I am 6'-3" so I need the drivers seat back. I found that the 3051 was the best for me.

To me the 3051 is the perfect layout. We love ours. However, there are a few improvements that could be made. In fact, I'd like it if they made a deluxe version... the 3051S Plus. In that model they'd do the following:

  1. Upgrade the dinette and bathroom counter top to the same solid surface material as the kitchen.
  2. Put a non-plastic sink and metal faucet in the bathroom.
  3. Install a rimmed toilet (Dometic 320 instead of 310).
  4. Put a A/C-Heat Pump in the bedroom. (Upgrade to 50 amp service)
  5. Slam lock latches on all bays and make most all bays either side or "up" opening with gas springs.
  6. Gas Springs under Bed lift
  7. Central lighting switches with built in dimmers
  8. HDMI (rather than coax) wiring to all TVs - with improved Ant/Cable/Sat hookups in the main lounge and outside.
  9. Dual Pane Windows

Other options could be:
  • Residential fridge with inverter and 2-extra batteries.
  • Solar Power option (installed or prewired)
  • I wouldn't mind seeing a small, shallow slide opposite the bed in the bedroom to provide more room in the bedroom. I'd guess it would be the 3051SS Plus then.
If we were to upgrade to a Class A - I'd want the exact same layout with just more room in every room.

I can hear the response now - too much weight. Still a guy can dream can't he?

Those are some good idea's there. As for the Solar Power option, our new 3011DS does seem to be pre-wired for solar or at least there is a label outside the door that indicates that it might be. I'll have to look at that closer....

Actually, I had a pic on my phone of the solar connector, (see attached)

Is this limited to only ZAMP solar options? Warning sign indicates that.

I agree with most of Creativepart and would add
Cut sink lid for 17" round sink
Water pump switch at bathroom vanity
Light switches in user friendly locations
Clear entry door glass
Borg dually tire valves
As mentioned better TV/Sat/DVD wiring, dedicated outdoor Sat wiring.
Universal solar wiring


Here's my current solar in photo.

Sage, what's the purpose of having a larger and then smaller panel?
