Not sure what type of interstate batteries I would recommend. The ones that came with the unit have Canadian Energy on the sides. This 2014 unit has only 11,000 KMS on it so its likely they have not been replaced.
If you have some doubts just e-mail Mark Polk at RV 101, I find he is a great source of information. I am subscribed to his monthly e-mail letter and it always has good tips and advice on everything to do with any RV.

We have a 2014 2300 on a Chevy. We are very happy with it. The corner queen bed is what it is. One person will have to scoot down to the end to get out. It's an exercise plan.

I have been intending to write up a detailed review, and will at some point soon. I think what people don't realize is that compared to similar models with slides, the 2300 actually has MORE storage and the same amount of seating etc. What you gain with slides is the walk around bed, and some empty space in the middle.

We have done a lot of little mods to improve things here and there. Are they essential, no. So far, for 4 looong trips, we have not towed a dinghy. We have our system down pat on that score. It's very easy to drive into town. It's very easy to drive on the road. The Chevy version gets 10 MPG at 65 MPH in neutral conditions. Nobody knows what the new Fords will get with the 6 speed transmissions. Hopefully they will equal the Chevys.

Bottom line, the only reason we would get rid of this one now would be for a much larger RV, in order to sit for long periods of time on snowbird trips. We are undecided about that. We really like this rig.

How do you check the average MPG on the 2016 Sunseeker? The one we are buying has the touchscreen Jensen navigation screen.

I don't believe the Jensen navigation screen has a mpg calculator. If you have a basic cut away chassis, there is none there either.

Old school method. Fill the gas tank to capacity and take an odometer reading.
Drive until you fill up again. Take another odometer reading and subtract the first odometer reading from the last. That gives you miles driven. Take the second fill up figure which is how many gallons used since the previous fill. Divide the subtracted odometer reading (miles driven) by the number of gallons on the fill. That gives you miles/gallon.

If you have the curvy couch in the 2300 coach then there is additional storage space hidden behind the long drawer under the ride side next to the window. Take a look my misc album to see it. I cut the seat top to at about the 2/3 length mark and added a simple 2x4 cross bar fame. I use it to keep slow moving inventory like my electric impact wrench. Also a tub fits in there for the serious coats for just incase.

Tip of the day: if you trailer or toad mark your maximum angle of turn on your camera display with a dry erase markerer.

I've got the curved dinette in mine too and can attest to all the storage space on the street side. It's a bit of work to get into it as you need to take off the cushions along the wall, but for things not used frequently it's an excellent storage location. I used the space on the rear half of the dinette seat for storage. I cut the plywood in half, added a 2X4 for support and a piano hinge to make opening the trap door easier. I then bolted a small safe to the steel framework for the dinette. (bolted from the inside of the safe into the steel so there's no exposed bolt heads) If someone really wanted to get the safe out they could do so with a sawall or big prybar, but it will take some time.
