2015 Hemisphere 282rk

Greetings,

Just picked up a new 2015 hemisphere. So far loving it and I guess I have a question we rushed a trade through and I am camping in it right now. But it says I have two grey water tanks on the control panel and I thought the dealer said it has one, it has a black and grey hook up for dumping but three pulls two grey and one black. So I take it this has two grey tanks but is one grey Y'ed into the Black's dump and the other has it's own? It makes sense and explains why there is 64 gal grey capacity as two 32 tanks is 64 gallons...

Thanks mike

Hi there, we also have a 2015 282 rk we picked up April 1 and love it too. We've been in it about 5 weeks now.
Yes, tere are 2 grey tanks, one for the kitchen sink and one for the bathroom sink and shower. The valve for the kitchen sink is under the slike near the rear of the unit. The bathroom is indeed connected with the black and grey. Just make sure you only open one of the valves at a time otherwise you may backflush some from one tank into the other. The rear gray tank has it's own connection and valve.

Very common on rigs to have two gray tanks. Usually referred to as the galley tank which is kitchen, gray is shower/bathroom sink, and obviously your black tank. You may still have one sewer hookup like I do for all three or you may have two.

Thanks very much. I think the only thing I don't like is easily replaced and that's the hard as rocks bed. Day three and I think next weekend there will be a new bed ordered. I went from an r - pod 177 to this and boy is life much better.....thanks again for the assistance.

Mike

Congrats on the 282rk!!! It's a great floorplan.
For your bed, we got a Serta gel matress topper (I think at Wally World) for about $85 and that has made the world of difference. Give that a try and I think you'll like it. I just don't like the short matresses. Feet hang over the edge!

I suggest you check the hoses for the water supply of the exterior shower. Unscrew the panel under the bathroom vanity. One of mine was kinked. Not fixed yet.
Also don't forget to check the rear panty doors before putting out the slide. If a door opened while towing it will catch in the slide & break the door. It happened to me!! Other than that, I am pleased with the Hemi 282RK. Have fun.

Do you have "P" or "LT" tires on your truck? Many half tons come from the factory with P (passenger) rated tires. These have soft sidewalls and will amplify any movement of a trailer. Also make sure you have enough tongue weight. A min. of 10% of trailer weight but 12-15% being more the ideal. Would check these 2 things first.

I forgot to mention that I changed to LT tires with a load range E.

Thanks for your reply.
