29.5 bhok

We placed our order 2 weeks ago on our 2018 eagle Ht 29.5 Bhok. We are hopeful to have it by the end of April/May
In the mean time I have a few question I forgot to ask or look at when we placed the order.

1. Where does the outside kitchen sink drain to? does it have its own tank or drain in the inside sink tank?

2. Is there another propane hook up in the back. I want to hook my own grill up and use the existing grill and more of a stove top. Which I have heard works good.

3. Also how many sewer hook ups are there? 1 or 2. Just wondering if have to get another sewer hose and sewer Y.

4. Price on slide toppers. I got a price when I called the dealer today of about 1300. Which to me seems really high. I was thinking more in the 800-1000 range. The guy i spoke with was not very friendly so say the least and pushed me off the phone.

any help would be great

Thank you

1. Where does the outside kitchen sink drain to? does it have its own tank or drain in the inside sink tank? Outside sink has it's own small tank 8.5 gallons.

2. Is there another propane hook up in the back. I want to hook my own grill up and use the existing grill and more of a stove top. Which I have heard works good. There is one under the slideout grill/stovetop drawer, which you have to connect to the pullout grill to use. There is another quick disconnect by the rear bumper that you can use of other things.

3. Also how many sewer hook ups are there? 1 or 2. Just wondering if have to get another sewer hose and sewer Y. Two sewer hook ups.
Forward one is for black tank and two larger gray tanks. The rear is only for the outside kitchen. I dump the rear one on the ground at my house because it is only water from the outside sink. With it being so small you could use a 5 gallon bucket and dump it into the toilet or the larger gray tank to keep from hooking up two connections.


4. Price on slide toppers. I got a price when I called the dealer today of about 1300. Which to me seems really high. I was thinking more in the 800-1000 range. The guy i spoke with was not very friendly so say the least and pushed me off the phone. Don't have them but plan to add them myself.

I was thinking two slide toppers would be in the $800 range installed. There are some toppers that are much more expensive, maybe the dealer was quoting those? Or maybe toppers they get from Jayco?

I'm assuming the $1300 for the slide toppers is a dealer install after they receive the trailer. You might want to call the dealer and see if they can amend your factory order to include the slide toppers if it's not too late. I believe they're much cheaper if the factory does it.

When we ordered our 27.5rkds last year we asked the dealer to have the factory add them. Two toppers were $750.00 addition to cost. Ask your dealer to do the same for you..

whjake, when I ordered my 2017 Pinnacle, I added the slide toppers. Factory installed was $1700 for four. These are the ones in-cased with the metal covers. Just to give you an idea. Skidawg

Wow, they must have completely changed the tank setup in the 2018.

My 2017 has the same tank setup.

I was misled by the dealer on walkthrough. He said the rear grey connection was same tank as the kitchen sink. It is not. Found out the hard way When the outside kitchen sink overflowed one day.

For the 2017s, the website used to say 43 fresh, 30ish black, 32.5 grey and 32.5 grey. I've used way more than 8 gallons of water in the rear kitchen and it didn't overflow. I can empty the rear tank either at the rear or at the main, depending on if my trailer is a bit nose down.
