There is always San Diego, nice this time of the year. Also the madness of Quartzsite Ar, at least once in a RV's life. A small city with a rocky and interesting history including camels for the old west army! This time of the year there can be a million people boondocking in the BLM areas.

Yep, cold next week. Enjoy your Damon.

Steve

We have never owned a RV and are looking at a 2008 Damon Daybreak with bunk beds . We are also looking at a 2011 Fleetwood 36' Bounder and a 2012 Phoenix Cruiser 2552. Any advice?

We'll keep in mind this is just my opinion.
I would choose an A over a C unless size or storage was an issue. My first Rv after the travel trailer routes was a C as I thought it would be easier to drive as I had driven large vans for years.
I like the feel of an A so much better and the storage is larger, esp outside.
I would pick FLOORPLAN above all else.
I have owned twoDaybreaks, first before had slides. Very pleased with but as with all there are issues.
Both are good brands. Look at how you would use it. Is bath better in one or other? What about comfort of sofa, bed and dinette.
The biggest issue with Daybreaks have been the peeling decals. This can be a costly item. Look at previous posts.
Can't comment on Bounder.
Good luck and enjoy your new lifestyle.

I am partial to Damon/Thor products. Nothing against Bounder, but my last coach was a Damon Challenger and my new coach is a Thor Challenger. It depends on the floor plan you like and fits your needs. Good luck.

I checked all the breakers, etc and found that I had no AC power to anything forward of the kitchen, plus had no power to any of the TVs (3). about ready to give up when I decided to remove the wood panel under the bed (on top of the power convertor). there I found not only the convertor, but the invertor that is used to power the entertainment systems from the battery, when not using AC using the remote switch mounted on the wall to turn it on. I noticed that the invertor had a small circuit breaker on its control panel, and it appeared to be tripped. I reset the breaker, and what do you know, all is good now. not only does the invertor provide ac power from the 12 v batteries, but also is the distribution for 110 AC power to the entertainment systems. thought I would share with others for future reference. also, apparently the DWs vacuum doesn't draw enough power to trip the breaker, but my manly shop vac does!

Could you describe the location you are talking about for the inverter. We have just picked up a 2010 34 ss love it so far but can't seem to find the inverter or a switch to turn it on. Right now ours is at the dealer getting some minor things fixed. Hope to hav her back for next weekend and tailgating. And no tailgating is not the reason we bought this rig just a little bonus of owning a rv.

on mine, the switch is on the hallwall next to the other interior switches (holding tank sensors, light switches, etc)restroom. the circuit breaker is on the actual invertor, which is located in under the bed, in the same compartment the houses the power center. since mine is a KD with 2 slides and an outside kitchen, it may be a bit different.

On mine, you have to have the ignition key on.

Hi All,

2005 Damon Daybreak 3270 owner on a Ford Chassis here. Its out 1st motor home so don't have anything to compare it with. My wife and I absolutely love it.

So far the only big issues have been a faulty step and entry door locks that were fixed by the dealer and change the 4back tires. Do have 3 storage locks to be in April.

I added 200w of portable solar and mounted a charged controller and a Trimetric battery monitor.

Steering was not great but an alignment and a Road master Reflex Rssa bar made a big diffence.

I changed out the head banger with an Lcd and the stock stereo with a new Bluetooth/USB one. Also upgraded most lights to Led and replaced get mattress.
