My grey tanks also seem to work well. My only complaint there is I wish the shower tank was larger or there was a way to transfer water from it to the kitchen tank. The DW and daughter seem to have no problem filling the shower tank in two days, yet we've never went past a third on the kitchen tank.

For the black tank looks like I need to get one of the wands to rinse it out.

I would venture to guess, given the location, that could be an upgrade... It would be a nice one, as we too fill that tank quickly.. Do ya think we should remind DW that there is another shower on the trailer that has no impact on tanks?? Ouch!!

You could possibly get an increase in capacity by installing an external 3rd valve and then opening both gray water valves allowing the tanks to equalize.

Note, I have not tried this.

Well I finally tackled the sagging mattress issue last weekend. The worst part....getting the mattress off the frame and out of the way! Once that was accomplished, I decided that I didn't have it in me (Florida heat) to take the frame off and get all of those staples out. So I decided, what the heck, no one is going to see it anyway. So screwed the built frame to the bed frame and wrestled the mattress back in place. Going beach camping in a week or so, so will get to try it out then.

Selling my 2012 321res

With much regret, I'm selling my 2012 Cougar High Country 321res. My boyfriend and I have decided to part ways in life and I don't have a truck to pull the camper with. (Plus, even if I did, I would be nervous to tow it.)

Anyways, the camper is in EXCELLENT condition. I bought it May 2011 and all the warranty work was completed in January of this year. (All the things mentioned here in previous posts by other users have been fixed at the time of warranty.) I have a 15,000 BTU a/c unit in the living room and a 13,500 BTU a/c unit in the bedroom. The complete a/c unit is ducted with separate thermostats. (Trust me... the a/c works soo well, it will freeze you out of there! LOL) I also just refilled both propane tanks. My setup in the living room is a jackknife sofa opposite the two recliner chairs.

These units are selling at over $35,000-$40,000 brand new at dealerships right now WITHOUT the 2nd a/c unit. I'm selling mine for $26,000. What a great deal!!! It still smells and looks brand new. Not one flaw!!

I'm sad to sell it cause I absolutely love it but alas if I can't use it to camp, it does me no good. If you are interested or know of anyone interested, please pass this information along. I live in Maryland. Call me at 301-904-8400 or send me a private message here if interested. Thanks.

I've also had black tank level errors in the 321 and my previous Keystone TT. I've learned that this is usually caused by a piece of TP getting stuck on the tank level sensor. Now, I dump a couple bags of ice and 1/4 cup of dish soap down the toilet just before the return trip. This seems to do a great job of scrubbing the tank. Our storage yard has dump facilities so I empty and rinse the tank there when we get home. Tank reads empty every time now.

Is having to keep the fridge set at "5" during the day and "4" at night seem normal? Our last trip was in 100-103 degree weather but, our previous TT kept at 35 degrees when set at "3" in the same conditions.

Clayhammer,
I am not dealing with your outside temperatures, however, I would certainly have that checked out! Seems to be a bit weak..

I'm in Tucson, AZ routinely above 100 and have a 1/2 full frig set on 3.

Lots of variables to consider; temp, humidity, capacity, access frequency, temperature of outside wall (direct sunlight?)...

Usually reducing empty air space helps (fill it with water bottles).

We were parked at the Lazydays campground in Tucson. The fridge wall was in full sun in the morning. I've heard of some folks adding a small electric fan behind the fridge to improve airflow through the outside vents. I may give that a try.

The direct AZ sun light is probably your issue. I've noticed mine cycles on alot more when the evening sun hits the wall. Some AZ FTers at my park suggested the fan also. I like shade better ;-)

I just pulled the 321RES 300 miles from Tucson to Kingman, AZ through Phoenix at 106 degrees with the Tundra at 65mph. Just saying…
