Water heater - Basic troubleshooting requires you to discover what changes from the day it works to the day it doesn't. Wind? Debris moving around? If it works once, it should work twice unless conditions are different. As suggested before, see where the igniter is sparking. Is it close to the flame port?
Bathroom - We use a plug-in space heater right before showering to boost up the comfort. In summer, the fan on low, as suggested, to remove excess moisture and draw in cooler air.
Noisy fridge fan - What fridge fan? Did you add one? The converter sits under the fridge and it has a fan. Are you napping inside the TT when you hear this or outside?
Rocking and rolling - The trailer is sitting on its suspension, the suspension is doing its job. Put scissors jacks under the plate that carries the torsion tubes, one on each side, to prevent the suspension from flexing.
Wardrobe - Yup, that's why we have the WS model of the 2604, a nice 4-door wardrobe slide solves that problem.
The 2604 packs a lot of living area in a trailer that is only 29 feet long. To get more, you need to go bigger.

I love my 2604WS,
Teach

We did two things to help stabilize our 2306. First, we bought an additional two sets of Lynx Levelers and use them under the stabilizer legs... The less they're extended, the less movement you'll get. You can use wood blocks, but we use levelers to try and cut down on weight. Secondly, we also use lynx levelers under our steps as a support. This had, by far, the biggest effect on the 2306 rocking when someone was climbing the steps in/out.
