338 RLTS owners

Any other 338 RLTS owners out there? I Have a few questions for you specific to this model.

Yes. I picked up my 338 RLTS a few days before Labor Day. Love it. No problems so far.

Hey guys! I'm jumping in here too, we are just ironing out the details on ordering a new 338 RETS (Jayco has rebadged the RLTS with a new option sheet, nearly identical to the RLTS but with frameless windows.)
Looking forward to this new rig!

We love ours also. We did not add the washer dryer in our order but its plumbing is installed underneath. It has a dedicated grey water tank for the washer that we do not have. I discovered i can use by equalization method. How is your 2 grey water tanks set up?

To make things more clear. I have 2 grey water tanks. One is plumbed to bathroom and galley (it's 32.5 gal) the other one is plumbed to the non-existant washer (it's larger than 32.5 gal as I have discovered). The way I use the one not plumbed to anything is by opening both grey water drains and leaving the exit cap in place, this allows the two tanks to equalize through the drain pipes. I have no issues with this method but was wondering how yours was set up?

I noticed this the first time we used the camper. Grey 2 never had water in it. I wondered if it was installed or if grey 2 was just a dirrect drain for a washer; so I equalized and sure enough it took half of grey 1 water within a few minutes of opening both valves.

There is nothing in the paperwork that explains this.

Hey Mike, that tank setup makes sense, we were told by a sale guy that one tank was for the galley and one for the bath, seemed odd as they share a common wall.
Has anyone actually scaled their 338 yet? Just curious what kinds of tongue weight everyone is seeing all loaded up for a trip.

Have not weighed as yet but its heavy. Since both grey tanks share the same outlet its easy to share them.

To use both grey tanks, I am planning on making a clamp-on valve similar to Camping World's "Flush King" in place of drain cap and then leave both grey tank valves open. That way there shouldn't be any spillage when you remove the drain cap at dump site. This would in effect create a master shut off valve.

That's what I do, I got one of the valves. It's also possible to just use the cap as the spilliage is about a quart of grey water.

Just curious, can't find any Jayco "published" weights on the new 338RLTS...., what was the "Ship Weight" noted on the yellow sticker?
