Congrats on the new RV!

Wife and I are now looking at a 13 Damon Daybreak, but know little about the product. What is a head banger....lol...that you replaced ?

Ah the head banger, that was the original 25inch crt Tv. I replaced it with a 32inch flat screen.

Also removed the faulty black/white backup camera monitor as the dealer had mounted a colour wireless monitor on top of it. I was surprised by how much vibration and noise in the cockpit was reduced when I removed the old monitor and tv.

We bought our 2005 Daybreak 3270 on a Workhorse Chassis in 2015. This is our first Class A coach. We have owned a few Class C in our time, early 80's and 90's. We love the Daybreak. I have had the ignition switch and rotten green switch failure. Lucky I had noticed the ignition switch was giving me problems while visiting AZ, so I bought one and carried it with me. On our way back home, the switch failed at a rest stop. I was able to change it out with no problem. Got home and did the modification to eliminate any future problems. Rotten green switch failed right in the driveway. Got lucky on that one. Changed the switch, no problem since. Thinking about trying the new ones out. Suppose to last for one million cycles. They are not cheap in price!!!! But could save a big headache in the future. I added the Progressive 50 amp hard wired electrical protector, has been worth every penny! A life saver, have been to a few spot where the electrical output was not right. Also added a satellite system, love that when we travel out west, not to many TV stations OTA. Added two flat screen TV's. It not a fancy MH, but it has all the essentials. I'm very pleased with the purchase. Love My Daybreak!!!

The model were looking at does not have a TV there, but I was assuming that...lol...and your new TV looks good there! I'm headed out to measure the roof height of our RV barn after coffee this morning.

I would love to have a Barn for mine but alas we could only afford the Rv or the barn :-) We do keep ours in a barn at the local fair grounds for the winter.

Mine is just the opposite of your winter! I need it to protect it from the Florida sun beating down on it !

Year round use sure sounds nice, or is to too hot during the summer to use it?

For us too hot ! We normally stoped using our TT by early June, and then not going again until Oct. There have been times we have gone to meet friends during those times, and always on the water, with boats, but still to us just not as fun !

We are outside active people, but when not on, or in the water, just sitting around under the awnings with fans blowing it's still hot and humid ! If we wanted to sit inside in the AC we would stay home ......lol !

BTW - The Daybreak I'm looking at measures the exact height of my RV roof so that's a no go as far as parking it there! I'm still going to check it out today. It is the only class A on 19.5 wheels that is too tall, and I believe it's because of the pass through storage !

Looks like I have the vintage one here a 1996 she has 35k miles on and running strong.
We have owned it for two years now. On the plus side it came with all the manuals.

I've now looked at the Damon, and like it! Clean, full body paint, less than 8000 miles, approx 150 hours on generator. Checked the cabinets for signs of leaks and found none.

Tires look good and it's kept parked on concrete.

My issues is the unit is too tall for under roof parking ! I have room next to my building to park it, and could have a RV carport built, but at a greater expense!

This is the only class A on 19.5" wheels that I've looked at, or researched that is 12'7". The others are all 12'1. I guess that is what allows for the pass through storage bays.

Decisions....decisions......lol !

Anyway, I'm glad you guys brought this old Damon thread to back to life !

Keep it active !

That's a shame it will it fit in the garage Steeljag.

Life member, I got my manuals also, they have come in very handy.

Much harder to try and figure out the BCC without The wiring diagrams.
