Have a 2016 High Country 293RK. Can anyone tell me the description labels on the breaker box for the various plugs? Who ever wrote out the descriptions was from another planet or a doctor. CAN'T READ A THING and we have some issues. The dealer is useless in our area and the previous owner never bothered to decipher. Just a basic schematic layout would do, we can go from there.
We also are having an issue with the black tank. It shows full but is not, tried to flush and had water coming up the vent tubes under the bathroom sink.
And the manual, does anyone agree that's a useless piece of paper.

And why are the back leveling jacks so low, couldn't they be mounted a little higher?

Wow, sounds like you've got some things to iron out. First, welcome to the MOC. This is your best source for information regarding your Montana. It sounds like you're going to have to go through your breakers one at a time and figure out what does what, and then mark them accordingly. Schematics are very difficult to come by on these rigs, as I understand, for various reasons. The sensors on the black tank tend to get dirty quickly and become useless. It sounds like your back-flow valve is clogged or malfunctioning if your flush isn't getting to the tank, assuming you're using the black tank flush. As far as the manual goes, yeah, it's very generic but you should have paperwork regarding all the different systems in your camper. They may help. Others will chime in with their expertise here, of which there is plenty. Good luck.

The blackwater flush anti-siphon valve under the sinks in all brands RV's have always been an issue. Mine had a cracked line connection, brand new one would not flow water at all, I pulled guts (ball and spring) and now it flows. Would be tough to back flow when tank is empty but I get why they are on there. Many bypass them.

Several have methods for attempting to clean/save sensors. I got my sensors on a camper to read correctly after filling tank with water (garden hose down stool) but first added 2 gallons of bleach and a big bottle of fabric softener and letting it set for couple of days. Others say use calgon, dawn dish soap, and flush. Some have said a box of septic tank yeast, fill with water an let it eat at stuff and flush. Many methods listed around attempts to clean the tank and get sensors working.

Hello everyone! We are soooo excited to be soon picking up our 3811. Just got home from Ohio where we got the new Ford 350 dually. What a blessing having such a wonderful truck to pull our fifth wheel with. Does anyone have any comments on the 3811 particularly?
