Looked up Redfish lake on the internet, looks like a beautiful area. Never been there myself, but camping should be great.

The heat my wife noticed was next to her feet on the engine side.

Redfish Lake is a very beautiful place, it is however the most popular place in the area and usually quite crowded. There are too many people in that area for me, but anywhere in the Sawtooth range is spectacular.

I also bought a 2010 Sunseeker 2300 and have been very unhappy with the black tank sensors and the fact that the black tank seems to indicate "full" far too soon. If in fact I do not have 30 gal black (and grey) tanks, I consider that outright fraud.
How exactly does one know when the black tank is full? Does the waste back up into the toilet? Can it actually enter the coach?

Davegood,

I have done some more investigation and the tanks in my Sunseeker 2300 do seem to be 30 gallon tanks.

There seems to be a different problem with the tanks instead of tank size (though the sensors are located in what I believe to be the wrong location, mine show 1/3 full after 2 gallons and 2/3 full after only about 8 gallons).
I leveled my Sunseeker in my driveway. To level the RV in my driveway, I put two 2x6 boards under the passenger side tires (raising the passenger side by about 3 inches) and was only able to put 21 gallons in the grey tank (so I thought the tank size was wrong). I then moved the RV off the boards, dropping the passenger side by 3 inches, and was able to add 8 more gallons for a total of 29 gallons!
I told this to my dealer who called their Forest River Rep and were told that this is a known problem related to how long the pipes are going into the tanks (he said the inlet pipe from the sink etc., but I think the vent pipe). Next I will call the Forest River Rep and see what happens.

Relative to when the black tank is full, you can tell by looking into the toilet, flush with the water pump off so you can look down, when it is getting up into the toilet toward the ball valve, it is full. Should not get into the RV. Note that the full indicators on my Sunseeker are correct, when the light is on, the tanks are pretty much full.

For me, the vent/inlet pipe problem is keeping me from filling the tanks and the sensor problem is keeping me from knowing when the tanks are really 2/3 full, which is important (8 gallons versus 20 gallons).

Please keep us posted if you come up with a factory Fix for not being able to fully use all of the tanks capacity. We have the same issues with them not seaming to be big enough. We came from using a Toy hauler that had huge tanks.

Thanks.

I just found a label on the grey tank of my 2010 Sunseeker 2300. It says 430H Holding Tank.
Does anyone know what capacity that is?
The specs say it (and the black) should be 30 gal.

I also found the label 430H on the holding tank. Haven't found out what it means.

I believe the tanks are 30 gallon as the spec says and that my problem is related to how far into the tank the vent pipe was installed. I will post when I find out more.

Thank you. Could you please confirm whether or not the black tank in the Sunseeker 2300 is the same. Also, to avoid any confusion (as I cannot find this tank listed on the promens site), could you find the Promens part number?
Nopnetheless, FR should state the tank sizes as 28 gal not 30, unless there is piping that stores an extra gallon or more.

2300 should have the same tank sizes. We have standardized the tank sizes to streamline engineering and reduce stocked parts.

I have forwarded all the forum responses to engineering and as we can find weight savings we will do everything we can to try and accommodate larger tanks sizes. I have looked at other Class C, mfg's and they're all pretty close in size. Some have larger gray, but then smaller black or even smaller for both. We are always looking to improve however.

PS. Promens part number is 430H
