How many dump drains on an 8286ws?

Hi we ordered an 8286ws about 5 weeks ago without seeing one and the dealer didn't know how many dump drains it had on it. Any help would be very appreciated.

Two, The first one is near front third of the camper for black and gray water from the bathroom and the second one is located around the rear third for the kitchen sink. I just got my 8286 Friday. I can send you pics tomorrow if you want.

Hey thanks a lot!!! Are those led lights factory installed? I did read a previous post about a running change but didn't know if ours would have them. The dealer said its still slated for mid may but not sure how long it will take to transport to middle Iowa.

Ya not to many besides general camper questions. How do you plan on dumping? Using a single hose or getting a Y.

You can also hard plumb the rear tank into the front, add another slide valve and use only the front to dump. So much easier.

That sounds like the way to go. I did option for the second air prep also and upgraded main air to 15,000. Not sure if we'll need 2nd air but better safe then sorry. Are you using the revolution hitch or leaving it locked?

Did this thread get hijacked?

The question was about the sewer hose connections I believe! Some of the campers have dual connections which is a PIA. Here is what I did to ease the PIA. I used a RHINO 15 FT hose that I cut into, added two fittings, male and female. This gave me two 7 1/2 FT hose that I connect to a RHINO "Y" with a 15' RHINO to the sewer dump connection. This gave me a very simple setup for both rear and front dump connections to the RV park dump connection. I also carry a 5 Ft hose just in case I don't need the 15" hose.

Good luck on your sewer connections.

I replied about the sewer connections, here's my solution. Takes a couple of hrs and about $25 in parts which is cheaper than hoses & y connections, etc.

We'll, we got good news and bad news. Good news is that it shipped May 10th, bad news it could be 3 weeks before it gets to us! Any ideas on how backed up the shipping companies are???

Our 8288ws was sent to shipping on April 16 and the dealer received it May 2. I think thats about the average wait.
