Thanks, going to do that. I am no fond of the idea of that filter location. Even during service, you need to place some on the bottom because you end up with water or antifreeze all over it. Would be nicer if the filter was outside on its own housing to prevent freezing.

Anyway, for the OP, if I am not mistaken, is an optional feature. I got it because I knew no better and thought was a good idea.

In everything I've seen, it's an option that comes pre-checked. Like the smoke detectors and heated mattress.

Good to hear the (mostly) good opinions/reviews/thoughts on this TT. We're wanting to get one, but probably holding off a year unless a stellar deal on a used one pops up somewhere on our half of the country. We have a free loaner, all but about 8 weeks in jan/feb/march. Regardless, we're pretty set on this model, despite having not been in one yet. =) Convinced it'll be nearly perfect.

Of course, I said I'd get a tractor "in a couple of years" and promptly found one later that same day on C.L. that I ended up getting. oops. We had it paid off within those "couple years" though. =)

Thanks for the quick reply. Looking at the pictures, I started to wonder (and freak out).

The front window of our 2306 dies not open...nor does the bathroom, but all of the rest are the edgeless windows which crank out from the bottom...I really like them and they look great!

Take with a few grains of salt...

I've posted this info on another thread, but you asked.....
While talking to a small local dealer who has been in business for 40 years, I asked about the tank heaters. Store owner pulled out pictures of his unit from last winter. Said he took his out in January for a 4 day outing. Said over night temps were in the mid teens and low 20's. Claimed the heaters kept everything warm enough. Picture that was obviously in a camp ground showed several inches of snow on the ground. Claimed campground was in the central lower peninsula of Michigan.
Dealer said the heaters are supposed to handle temps down to 10 degrees F. YMMV

Well, we ended up finding one for a good deal (closeout) about 6 hours from home. Got it Saturday. It doesn't have the tank heaters, but seems to have many/most other options. Surprised me how high off the ground it is. I have a 2500HD which has a pretty high hitch, and I used a straight hitch. It's a light, easy-pulling camper though. My dad was impressed with the build quality, versus his 20+ year old Sunline. Been too busy to even get any photos up, but I'll attempt to do so.

Thanks for the responses. It helped us be sure this is what we wanted.

I'd be interested in knowing where people store things in these campers.. Coming from one that has 3 drawers in the kitchen (silverware, large utensils, junk). This one has ONE MASSIVE drawer.

What do folks use for bunk sheets? Assuming twin and just have some extra width.
Does everyone use camper queen sheets, or normal queen sheets?
How do you SECURE THE TABLE? I sure don't want to put it down/lift it up every time we stop, but it wanders around the floor. What happened to the tables that attach to the wall, anyway?

I didn't get any pics myself yet, but.......
