How long have they been building the Bay Hill?
I'm pretty sure 2012 was the first year

Just got off the phone with Evergreen....they have fantastic customer service. They confirmed that the back bathroom shares one auxiliary tank for both grey and black water and just pulling the one lever empties it.
If you are not getting any water out of the washer hookups, something is wrong. Give Evergreen customer service a call and they can explain if their are shutoff's elsewhere, but I don't think so. When you opened the water valves, were you hooked up to outside water and not the water pump. It's possible that the washer hookups are not connected to the water pump.

Here's an update on the tankless water heater. As I mentioned, I bled all the lines and lowered the setting on the dial to just below the halfway point. I used the shower for a long time and never ran out of hot water. My wife tried it out and had the old problem with the water becoming cold for about 30 seconds and then getting hot for about 1 minute then cold again. At first I was baffled as I did not have the problem but she told me that she turned the hot water up all the way then added cold. However she then backed the hot water off and that is when the problem began. I realized that once again the hot water was going off on safety because she lowered the hot water on the shower valve instead of adding more cold water. I used the shower once again and turned the hot water valve all the way and added cold as needed. I could have stayed in the shower for more than an hour. I never ran out. Now she understands not to back off the hot, but add more cold. If that is still to hot, then the heater dial should be lowered a notch at a time until you hit the best temperature.

There has been an issue with tankless water heaters, that being that you cannot get slow flow of hot water out of them. Example: if you are rinsing dishes with hot water and turn it down, the low flow affects the performance of the heater. You will generally just get cold or barely warm water at low flow. That is probably why you get better performance by having hot on full and adding cold to comfort.

What are the R values? Are the tanks and dump valves heated? Site doesn't say. I like the modern interior style.

I guess I'll have to call Evergreen service, because our dealership service said I should get any water to the washer/dryer faucets if I don't have units hooked up.... that there should be no air in the lines because they've never been turned on at the main shut off valve.

Well, this didn't help me at all because they did not know where to tell the main valve is so that I can turn it on and bleed the air anyway.

We also found that turning the water thermostat to about medium gave the best result with turning the hot water on full and then adjusting with cold.

why use dishes? We only use paper plates and paper/plastic cups. My wife has stated she would prefer the storage vs the dishwasher.

Anyone else with a Bay Hill having issues with the main TV in the living area not coming in clearly when connected to cable? I've talked with 2 other owners (besides us) that can't seem to get clear reception. The tv in the bedroom is considerably better. I wonder if it has anything to do with the main tv being on a slide out?

I have heard that you should make sure your antennae booster is off and it may clear up picture.

I would check to make sure the connections are tight. A bad connector can cause a grainy picture. Check the coax for white dielectric wrapped around or touching the center conductor. Will definitely cause a bad pic. The way these tv's are thrown together nowadays, the qc is crap! Check connections at wall plate and outside.

So, she uses the DW for storage instead? What does she store in it?

Thanks everyone! I will try all of those things and hopefully it will help.. not to fun watching football on a fuzzy screen. We did purchase a 32" flat screen and hooked it up to the basement cable and had a fun tailgate style BBQ! Definitely looking forward to more of those. Although I will say that space in the basement could hold a much larger tv. The 32" seems tiny in there!

Question. I gave a friend who is looking for a fifth wheel for full timing. Can not go for a DRV or Excel. Out of price range. Is the bay hill for full timing? I know a lot use various 5ers that we not approved by the manufacture. Is this one , neither he or I could fine anything on site
