I hope that you were able, at the dealer or at home, verify that everything is working correctly. Hate to find problems in April requiring it to sit at the dealer when you're itching to camp.

There was a earlier comment about the 3 separate sewer outlets. The 2nd gray tank can be set-up with a cap that has a 3/4" water hose connection and run that to the site's sewer connection. You can also buy a sewer 90 connection that has a separate, 3/4" connection for use at the site's hook-up. The 2nd black tank may have to be dealt with separately. The factory wouldn't piped to black tanks together. Think of the long, near horizontal piping run to connect them and you'll understand why they don't.

Congrats on the new camper.

Dave

I use a "y" connection when hooked up to a sewer at the site. At the dumping station I pull up to mid discgarge points and use a 20' stinky slinky first at the front then back gray tank.

My dealer checked everything out while demonstrating. I never would have figured out the electric water heater switch at the tank. It's probably in the instructions but real men don't read instructions.
