Sandpiper 345 RET question.

I'm looking at the 345RET as well as a Montana. My wife loves the windows in the Sandpiper but I'm really concerned about heating, cooling and condensation. Also seems like a lot of weight on the kitchen side slide. How have you liked yours (if you have one) and do you have any words of wisdom?

I found the water heater and bypass valves today. There is an access panel in the basement that allows you to reach the area. The access panel is hidden since it has the same carpet as the rest of the basement and the screws are the same color as the carpet.

I know this is an old post but I have an 2011 345 RET and we love it so far.We have camped in 95*+ heat and had no problems cooling. We did get the second A/C which make a world of difference.We have also camped in 50* and the heat would run you out if need be.We didn't even turn the fire place on.

Mine has a by-pass and winterize valve in the basement storeage where the water hook up and dump valves are.

I have only used antifreeze one year and it messed up my cheep pump on my first TT so all I do is drain all tanks ,water heater, and blow air through the water system to get the water out. Pour a glass of antifreeze down all the drains to keep the traps from freezing. I have never had a problem yet going on 6 years.Our winters sometimes get in the lower teens and sometimes 0 with -0 windchills.
