The cargo doors are held open by a spring loaded plastic latch. Would be nicer a magnetic catch.

By the way... what are the sizes for the cargo locks? Forgot to measure them last time I was at the TT. If I am not mistaken, the Outside Shower nozzle door is shorter than the rest. Will like to order new locks, hate the idea of the universal stuff. Will save me a trip and pull one out to see how big are the barrels.

DisDad - I've had the same problem with dumping the tanks if the sewer connection at the CG is too high. I've always been able to manage to get the tanks empty by either moving the camper forward or back a few feet, or stopping by the dump station on the way out. Now that I know it can be an issue, I remember to compare the height of my sewer outlet with the inlet at the site when I'm parking.

The lock sizes are listed in a thread somewhere because I used them when I ordered my replacement locks. And yes - all are the same except the outside shower.

I cannot remember but there is a post on a thread that shows how to install a heating element in the Air Conditioner. Seems like a great idea for heating to safe Propane when having shore power availabe. The advantage there is no need for a space heater and the disadvantages associated with it.

To me is about energy choices.

A heat strip on the air conditioning unit does not provide very much heat. Would not take the place of a space heater or a furnace. Basically just takes the chill off.

To my knowledge a heat strip can only be added to a non ducted a/c

We love our 2306. A lot of folks have issues with too small of a tow vehicle to pull it and end up having to get a bigger truck, but since you are downsizing hopefully that is not an issue.

Another issue we had that showed up in some other models is using the heater while on battery power at elevation. The batteries dont get the fan blowing fast enough to trip the sail switch so the heater senses a problem and shuts down. Our fix was to remove the louvered circular vent covers. This allows enough air to move to trip the sail switch. It works fine with the covers on shore power.

Good to know... I was considering the heating element modification and also thanks for the info on the sail switch.

Plus, with the heat strip your heat will be coming from the ceiling, and warm air rises, and not much of it, well you get the idea...
