Thanks! This may sound stupid, but I always wondered if we were "enclosed" or not.

A 2009 might not be. If your valves are in a compartment, then you're enclosed. If your valves are just exposed below...then you are not heated and enclosed.

The other way to tell is the entry step. If you have a power step, that is the old design. If your step is integrated into the sidewall (drops down) then you have the new design which includes heated, enclosed, tanks.

I've had both exposed and enclosed.

Exposed: easier to connect the sewer hose, don't need to play "thread the needle" through the hole. Disadvantage: Exposed to the cold. This is what I did in the 2860 I used to own (I used the silver windshield cover to "intensify" the lightbulb):[]=9037

With the enclosed tanks, they stay warmer. But... downside is having to "thread the needle" with the sewer hose. It adds 2 minutes to my hookup time, ok, it's only two minutes, but STILL!

JJ only, my cat went to Rainbow Bridge July 2015

I love my Sunseeker, when I'm on a trip I don't wanna go home!!!"

Total days camping each year: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!
