I leave the galley tank (rear) open and it does equalize with the center grey water tank. When I dump, I open the black tank and let it empty, then open the grey tank valve and empty the two grey tanks at the same time. While the grey tanks are emptying, I hook a water hose to the black tank flush connection and let it run.

Thanks, that looks like a project for the fall after it cools off again.

Not if you park the driverside on the north out of the sun.

Keys!!! We got sooo many keys with ours.

Door Key
Slam door keys
Shower door key
A small key with black plastic on the handle that looks like it goes to a safe
and
Another Front Door key, that doesn't fit our trailer.

Oh, and now we have a separate deadbolt key, thanks to an emergency lock-ectomy on Mother's Day.

We recently took delivery of our new 2013 8280WS... so far so good... now we just want to get out and use it, next week!!

We also received three keys. One for the entrance door, one for the 'slam latch' compartment doors and the '751' key for the outside shower. I guess they just buy the outside shower made for any trailer and it comes with that lock.

I have a question for you... have you taken a look at your TV antenna? Ours seems to rest on the hump of the roof, I'm afraid it will ware a hole in the roofing material. Is yours the same?

I started another thread about it but haven't got many replies yet.

Happy camping!!

TV antenna wear question

We have been fulltime in our 2011 Rockwood 8280ws for almost one year and I have not detected any wear on the rubber roof where the antenna rests in the travel position. Ours rests in the same position as your new one. This is a good question and is a place I will inspect more often. If you are concerned you might place a wear patch under the contact point. This could be done by getting a repair kit for rubber roofs and following the instructions to glue a wear patch to the roof where the antenna rubs on the existing rubber roof. There may be other ways to remedy this, but this is all I could think of. I hope this helps. Good luck and safe and happy travels. Tom-s

TV antenna wear question

Thanks... I was thinking of the same thing. Which brings up another question, I've never had a trailer with an outside colour other than white. Do you know if the material for the roof is the same as the white roof? Should I use the same (or similar with colour added) Dicore lap sealant or is there special stuff I should use on this roof?

thanks again,
Gord

We've had ours for 3 years...no issues of wear where the antenna sits on the roof at that transition.

I believe that the roof material is the same other than pigment added for the color. There should be info in with your warranty package about the roof on maintenance and care.

Hello,
Just wanted to let you know, the roof material is TPO, not rubber. There is a difference in what to use for maintenance.
Thanks
Ron
