@taylorj... WOW re: Four tanks... That's DIFFERENT than the literature I've found that said there's a SINGLE 89g tank for BW and a SINGLE 89g tank for GW in the 365.

My camper has 4 different tanks level indicators. The brochures and Jayco say the capacity for BW is 89, GW is 89. You have four tanks. When the camper is full, you hold alot of water.

@taylorj... EXCELLENT point - I too have FOUR level indicators! That SHOULD have been a tell-tale sign that there's four tanks. TOTAL capacity is 89g B and 89g G. Makes sense. We MOSTLY camp a CO State Parks that do NOT have full hook ups, so I'll make sure ALL valves are CLOSED until I connect the hose, then open BOTH BW valves then "clean" with BOTH GW valves. Thanks for the info - now I don't have to do the "test", like in the "classic" movie RV. Thank GOD for that -

SUPER re: '12 GMC 2500HD. One other thing I did to my 2500HD was REPLACE the stock fuel tank with a 45g tank (~$1,000 + install). It's WELL WORTH the money. You'll find that you'll probably get about 12mpg pulling the rig, and the 20g stock tank doesn't get you very far! Of course, I'm running at higher altitudes where fuel economy isn't that great to begin with!

I hear you re: 2500HD being rated at 15,600#; however, you'll bounce! I've even upgrade my shocks. The bounce is by NO MEANS "out of control", it's more of an annoyance.

Happy camping!!
The GM HD's were upgraded significantly for 2011. Boxed frame, bigger brakes, engine brake, 36 Gallon tank, trailer sway control, etc. etc.

These trucks are expensive, so I need to save a few bucks first.

Looks like we are both learning a lot about our trailers here.

I didn't know that about the 2011 GMC HD's. That's SIGNIFICANT, and about time! Everything you're talking about will work GREAT with the 365BHS. Pay the $$$... It's a vehicle you'll have for a LONG time! These forums are GREAT for learning everything - even useless information

Hey guys I have a 2011 that we took delivery of in late Nov last year. Needless to say it was a long winter of looking out the window in anticipation of spring. We had our break in trip this past weekend so I got to play with all the switches and valves.

We do have 4 tanks, 2 grey, 2 black with 4 valves. There are also two flush hook ups, one being on the opposite side of the unit under the fridge vents and the other in the water control panel. The opposite side location is a design flaw if you ask me. It's a real PITA location especially if your dumping on the way out of a campground without full hookups since you need to run the hose to the opposite side of your unit while dumping and potentially holding up the line.

The other thing you might want to do is label your valves 1 and 2 so you know when to pull what according to your indicators. I have a piece of tape with that on them temporarily until I get my labeler out there this weekend for permanent markings.

In past experiences with leaving the grey valves open, sewer gasses travel up your hose and into your tank which can make your unit smell since there is no trap like in homes. So my preference is to dump as I need to.


Good luck and enjoy your units.
