It appears that the unit has a gravity fill. Check the video walkthrough:
New 2401W Floor plan (Video Walkthrough)
as the camera comes around the back and on to the driver's side, there are three black connectors almost at the rear. One is electrical, the other two are water - gravity fill and city water pressure hookup. (Note...as I recall...you can't use the city water hookup to fill the tank - the tank can only be filled through the gravity filler.)

I thought the one next to the shore power connector was the cable connector.
Anyway- is it just me or is it slightly dangerous to have a city water connection next to a 30 amp power connection?

Well, looking at it again...a bit more closely...it does look like the cable connection. So...maybe it only has the city water hookup - no gravity fill. Hmm. Brian can probably clarify...

There shouldn't be a concern about the power connection - it has to live out in the elements regardless of where the water hookup is. One hopes (?) that it's weather-proof!

Or do you need to connect high pressure?
My buds Coachman Prism only has a pressure fill and he hates it- tough to refill in the boondocks.
The gravity fill is on the back, next to the tail light. You can see it in the second picture. The black cap on the driver side is for cable connection.

Thanks again.
Excellent for me since I will park mine against a fence on the driver side.
Easy access for a fill at the rear.

Thanks for posting pics and evaluation! We have ordered our Sunseeker W and will be picking it up in May. We also bought sight unseen, and are very excited to have such a nice floor plan. Glad to hear your positive reviews.

Homeonwheels,
Did you get the stabilizer jacks?
If so, what type are they and where are they located?
And how much was the upgrade.
Thanks

No, I didn't get this option, but now am thinking about it. Earlier bclemens mentioned it's a stabilizer by Equalizer, placed in front of rear wheels (stabilizer). So I figured it's Stabi-lite. It's listed for $825 MSRP, and $1,645 as an upgrade option for W.
