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.
Hi Lifemember,

Do you fill your black and grey by running a faucet and the toilet?

Black tank is filled through the toilet not the sinks or shower.

Not always.

In some units bathroom sink is connected to Black tank. Possibly for plumbing convenience, possibly to keep Black tank liquid.

I take the shower head and hold it over the toilet bowl so the black tank fills faster If your shower hose is not long enough this wont work.

I drove mine 350 miles last weekend, it's handling much better since I replaced the bushings on the rear sway bar.

I did notice last week a 3276 bunk house model have nor in to the storage I use.

Just thought I'd give my new to me Daybreak some love on here. Wife and I just bought it a last month. Took it out for 2 weekend trips and love everything about it so far.

Congratulations and may all you trips be fun.

We have a 2008 Damon Astoria and really enjoy it. Damon/Thor made a good mix between price and quality. We recently were talking to a Newmar mountain aire owner and their motorhome was really nice, a completly different quality, cost and class than ours. We started discussing some of the problems we experenced early on just to find out they had the same type of problems, but they paid ~200K more.

Latest problem we had was our Norcold frig door broke off. I've purchased a new door on line and a hinge support hit, problem solved, better seal more solid supports. If you have a Norcold, you may want to look into the support kit (~$25 on line).

Hi all,

Just back from a trip and of the dozen MH's I saw in the park, half of them were older Challengers, Hurricanes Intruders.

A new Hurricane and Jayco Seneca Super c looked nice.

I am really happy with our 2005 Daybreak. We have had it for 11 months and more than happy.

We just returned from the trip to Missouri, the park we stayed at had a 1996 daybreak to sites down from ours. Looked like a bigger version of ours. Was a little ruff around the edges with a little delamination going on and the front hinges to hold the hood are shot. it I think it was a 2960 model.

I sold my 98 Daybreak 3130 last June. It had a 216" wheelbase and it rode and drove great. Mpg was pretty good too compared to my Dolphin. The only thing that I didn't like was the basement door latches, most of mine didn't work right.
