Then I have the coax cord from the tv running in the cabinet also. This would be plugged into the antenna (with the green button) or the satellite receiver

What kind of box do I need for a wingard satillite? Satellite can be Dish or DirecTV... I recommend DirecTV for NFL Sunday Ticket. Dish for everything else (Dual tuner boxes, dual TV controls, monthly pay as you go mobile set up. You can pay one month and then cut it off)

How do I use all those connections.
Looks like you have lots of options

Hi Mike,

Congrats on the camper and getting your first trip out of the way.

Sounds like we have the exact same model of camper, 3100SS 2004 and it appears that Vasnipe's 2006 model is a very similar as well.

I'm curious to know if either of you have issues with your fresh water tank running out the overflow. If I fill the tank full at home and drive to the campsite, I've lost about 1/3 of the water in the fresh water tank. This is due to the fact that it sloshes around and runs out the overflow tube.

I was thinking about putting a valve in the hose to prevent but wanted other opinions.

Thanks.

If it is running out, its running out of the vent tube. Whatever you do, make sure air can still get out.

Mike,
That is also called an air escape, if you valve it and forget later the valve is closed, one of two things will happpen. You'll give your bedroom an unwanted bath, maybe all 30 gallons or just as bad when using the tank with the pump you'll suck it to the size of football!. Another way to do it is to cut into the tubiing like you wood for a valve, instead install a vacuum breaker as high as possible in that space. The vac breaker will stop the water from leaving the tank because it will break the syphon effect the falling water has on the tanks now.

For a good example, under your wash basin and in the kitchen both sinks are fitted with vac breakers attached to the drain piping, otherwise the water would never go down the vacuum down the pipe can't break the trap, you don't want it to. Instead the vac breaker opens and allows air in, water continues to grey tank. Hope this works for ya.

MikeInColo, I've never had any water loss from the tank due to driving. But I don't travel with a full tank, only about 1/3 for hand washing and cup rinsing during lunch stops. There have been other threads on here from other trailer owners with similar problems.

Regards,
Chris in Virginia

Roof type

"What type of roof would this 2004 unit have. What should i do to maintain it?? Any help would be great."

You may have a rubber membrane roof, take a look up there and if it feels rubbery, well, yes. There are threads and threads on roof care but they seem to boil down to cleaning with a mild detergent like Top Job or Spic and Span, use a soft brush and be sure to rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
Here is one of the threads care and maintenance for your rubber roof

"Also have problem with back window. looks like all trip is dry rotted and someone tried to silicone around the window but still I see water on inside window frame when a hard rain comes. Any ideas who or how to fix."

If it is like my rear window, an automotive glass shop might be able to help out. They have the expertise to seal things. Post a photo so we can be sure.

"Also any one have leaking issue on roof up front over cab where the seam is going across bunk area. mine has some damage and looks like some one tryed a bubba fix. I put eternabond but not sure how good or long its gonna last before i should have professionally fixed."

Did you "prime" the surface where you put the Eternabond by wiping with Acetone or the suggested cleaner? That would remove dirt and such and give you a good sealing surface. Herk would be a good one to ask.
