We just bought our first RV. A 2005 Granite Ridge. As I use it I have discovered some questions. First, there a little lights inside the RV on the steps. I cannot get them to light with any switch. With power plugged in, with steps out, with steps retracted, etc. even tried the porch light switch in case it was tied to that. Nothing
Does anyone know how to get these things to work before I start checking fuses bulbs and wires?

Thanks!

Granite Ridge

We just purchased a new to us 2006 Granite Ridge 2900GS with 19K and really like it, but not many GR owners out there. The Utility Center was and is confusing, but starting to see how simple it really is. Does anyone have any information on the "No Fuss Flush" and how it works?

We bought our Granite Ridge 3100SS new in 2006 we have about 48K miles on it that we drove in the first 18 months. Since then we have used maybe two-three times. The motor is a workhorse, our son raced motorcycles and we always had a trailer full of bikes and tools on the back.

Now we are planning a month long trip from SC to Yellowstone. As I go through the camper double checking that everything is in working order, I ask myself. WTH was I thinking??? This thing is WAY to heavy. Wood cabinets, 100lb TV, glass shower doors (uhm dangerous). While the bling is nice I would not do it again.

Hoping we get more than 10mph on our trip we will be towing a 2004 Mazda pick up.

On the bright side, 10 years later pretty much everything is in working order and has stood the test of time well. (said from the safety of our driveway)

I have a 2004 Granite Ridge and we just put in a new toilet, sleep number bed, AC, new shocks and load lifters. Rides like a new one. We also had the dine net recovered. It all looks very nice. We got rid of the blinds over the kitchen sink and put up curtains. Looks a lot better. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we enjoy ours. I am still trying to locate my 12 volt water pump so I can check it out..Any idea where it is located??

I just changed the front and rear shocks on my 2004 GR. Suggest getting the very best shocks (Bilstine) . I did and the ride and driving is much better. The best cost a little more but some time you can get them on sale

There is a hose connection for the no fuss flush system. It cleans out your black tank. I do this every time I dump the black tank. I run water through the black tank and watch the drain hose and when the water is clear I let it run for another three or four minutes. I have also heard that people put a bag on ice through the toilet into the black tank and when the drive to the next camp site the ice slides around and cleans the tank. However, I have not done this.

The water pump is located behind the water switching panel, not very accessible, but can be taken out after a bunch of strong words and some time.

Jayco has told me three different places and it is not there. I think you are right, and after looking at the water control panel I not sure I have enough four letter words to take it apart. Don't use the pump that much anyway. Have a great water filtering system on the RV so not a problem using city water.

Some great mods to you rig. We have a 2006 granite ridge2900gs. I noticed you changed your ac unit. What did you replace yours with? I don't think carrier is made anymore and I'm wanting to replace ours. Thanks for your help.
