I have two 12v batteries wired in Parallel... you have two 6 volt batteries wired in series


Should mine be wired in parallel instead of a series?

THE DAYBREAK LIVES!!! It's alive!!!!! New coach batteries a little starter spray and the Generator is running! The fridge and freezer check out and the AC brought the temp inside from 89 to a comfortable 74!!! Hooked up city water and flushed out the lines. Can't seem to get the water in the holding tank to run via the pump though. I have not tried the water heater yet either. It was a good day! Oh and none of the lights on my info center light up to tell me battery levels or holding tank levels???? Still a good day!!! Our foster daughter wants to camp on it tonight! LOL

Did you put water in the Tank? The tank fill is right above the city water connection. You should put a little clorox in the tank also to disinfect it. Then run the pump and run water in all the lines, not the water heater. Let it set in the lines for a couple hours, then drain it and refill the tank and lines. Not sure where the fuse is for the panel, never had trouble with them before. You'll get this figured out.

With no power to the stove vent control panel the pump wont work. The switch to turn the pump on should be on that control panel. Was on the 1996 anyway. fuse for that will be in the breaker panel. check the fuse with the ohm meter.

Next step would be to see if you have power at the pump. The lights for the tanks could be grounds or connections in the area next to the valves for holding tanks.

Could have had line pressure keeping the pump off be careful hooked to street pressure without a regulator.

Had the Daybreak out for my second ever dry camping trip, it performed perfectly off the grid. It was 45f so had to run the furnace overnight, the batteries were at 80% in the morning.

So any advice for dumping at the waste station this week so I don't look like an idiot! I've never done this before. Are there any good video links that demonstrate?

They have YouTube videos on that subject. After hooking up your stinky slinky you will want to open up your gray tank for a second or two to test for leaks in the slinky. you should have a full gray tank before going to the dump station. After testing close the gray tank and use the rest of the gray tank to clean out the slinky after you dump the black tank.

I fill the blank and gray tank with water before going to the dump station. This helps to flush out the solids in the black tank plus give enough gray water to clean the slinky out after dumping the black tank.
