First night out

Got to take it out for night number one of many, just did a little trek to a stream for the night, it did real well getting down to the stream, might put a little lift on just for some insurance. anyone do a mod to keep the door open like a latch system of something?

Great pictures! Ours came with a latch to keep the door open - its a simple hinged door latch, plastic, that snaps into a receiver on the door. Unfortunately it only works on the lower section, so we are considering putting something on the top so that we can close the lower and still have the upper open. It looks very much like this Plastic T-Style Door Holder 3-1/2" (White) #10414

Thanks, I'm thinking of just putting one on the top half, that way it will do the top when separated and the whole door when hooked together.

I added one of the "T" style door latches. It was just a few bucks at our local RV dealer. It was a simple installation...drill pilot holes and screw it in place. I also put a layer of silicone on the back of each part before screwing them down, just to make sure they didn't become a point for water intrusion.
