It will be on the back of the water heater tank. It could have one, two or three valves and a crossover pipe from the hot side to the cold side. It'll probably be behind a panel or partition.

345 RET question

I had an earlier post about the window laden RET. My wife loves it (so why I'm I asking any other questions) but I have a few concerns about all the windows. I'm looking at a 2010 and it appears to be a pretty good deal but I'm concerned about cooling, heating, and the subsequent condensation on the windows in the winter. Do you have any comments or concerns about your unit? How long have you had it and what conditions do you camp in? Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks for the replies.
JTSandpiper, We got ours in May and used it all summer set up on a lake front lot that we have in central Maine, The hottest day being in the nineties and the coldest night in the low forties, It cooled really good but if it was much colder we would probably have to have some kind of space heater, We really love it, we went from a pop up to a 39' fiver so it seems like a mansion. So far the only complaint is the owners manual, It is not model specific it is a generic type.

I have a 345RET also that I am trying to winterize. I can not locate the hot water heater much less the bypass valves. I can tell where it is located based on the outside access panel. But it appears to be behind the wall between the kitchen and the bathroom. There is no access panel to get to that area. Did you have to cut your own access panel?
