Add another one in...
We bought ours last fall as our first RV. I believe I've run into a couple of you in other places but just found this thread today. I'm hooked...
Reason I found this was I just TODAY discovered that our Concord has TWO grey water tanks. I probably shouldn't go into too many details for fear of embarrassment but I was under the impression that the outboard tank on the curb side was the fresh water tank and I have only completely drained it twice since owning the RV. Other times I would just pull that lever every now and then to rinse the drain lines out. This came back to bite me last weekend when I was dry camping at a race paddock and the water backed up into my kitchen sink.
Anyway, after about an hour at the local campground dump station...dumping everything, rinsing everything...and then running water into sinks, showers and toilets did I finally figure out what is really going on. Now I just have to go look for the elusive fresh water drain in case I every really have to winterize the RV.
I'm only about halfway thru reading about all of the mods you all have done so far, love all of them. My mods so far have been only out of necessity. We lost the AC cover going down the highway at 70 mph. Luckily we recovered it basically undamaged and was able to secure it back down only much better this time. It started with only 4 of these small screws securing it.
It now has 9 screws around the bottom of it holding it in place.
I also had to search down a short in the brake light circuit that kept blowing the 10 amp brake light fuse, finally found it under the plastic footwell near the drivers door. A wire tapped into the brake light circuit that led up to the Bigfoot Jack controller would intermittently short against the body...that was fun to find for sure. Did you guys know you can't shift out of park if your brake lights don't come on?
I'll add more later, need to catch up on a few other things as I just got back home. We love our 300DS though, bought it in Sept with 6,000 miles on it and now have about 13,500 miles on it. We've pulled my race car to 4 out of town events and made a few other long weekend trips in it. Getting ready now to go to the Hot Air Balloon festival in Albuquerque NM next month for our next trip.
