It makes it a lot easier to see if there is a leak, which side is low, and to fill.
That sounds like a good idea. will also look at a way to do this in the back if I can. Should I decide to bring this home on Monday

I was also ready about the ROTTEN GREEN SWITCH problem with the WH chassis.. Has anyone tried jumping out this switch with a jumper wire for a temporary fix until one can get to a better location to fix it correctly? (should this, or when this becomes an issue that is)

2005 Damon Daybreak 3270w. Love the thing! I is not fancy, but very well kept. Only problems I have had was the Rotten Green Switch and the Burnt Ignition Switch. Both are very easy to change. Rides great. Only two modes I want to complete. One is the Steer Safe, and the other is a direct tv satellite system. Other than that, very happy with the motorhome. I'm sure in the future other things will fail, but that is mechanical. If man made it, it will break! Happy Trails.

After getting this home and taking a couple of trips I spent some time looking it over. It has a newer fan clutch, alternator, belts, already installed. I changed the radiator hoses, flushed and changed thermostat. Had to fix the lower ball joints and put new front tires and alignment. But I new that was needed before purchase. I installed new front shocks and steering stabilizer upgraded the TV. Over all looks to be in great shape.

As others have stated the daybreak is not fancy rig, very basic but well kept MH. It is on the P37 chassis and handles fine. On our first long trip of two weeks the control board for the A?C unit burned out on our last day. It was an easy fix that took longer to find the part then replacing.

Im not much of a mechanic, I do oil changes and what not. But because of this forum I am getting more handy. I troubleshot and fixed the kwikee steps by replacing the control unit, the water heater turned out to be a bad circut board, replaced the flush valve on the back of the toilet, rivited on a new handle for the awning and replaced the chassis battery and all 3 house batteries. Also bought a big battery charger/jumper and an air compressor I keep at home but throw on the coach when we head out

I have a mechanical background although being disabled has slowed me down some. What I don't know about MH this site has been a wealth of information. This is our first MH although it has similar type of equipment as all the other campers I have owned it has other things and procedures that are quite different.

I also bought a portable air compressor that will pump up the tires and handle the air tools. The air tools have become a great asset overcoming the problem with my hands these days. It goes in the front passenger side compartment along with a fifty foot air hose
