Thank you!! It really did turn out great. Big thank you to Mikewcrook for helping out. It was super easy to do if you are even somewhat handy. I used a drill and jigsaw. Big part is just measuring everything out how you want it to end up.

Fireplace in my 23ikss

Because of Mikewcrook, people in the future buying a used 23ikss will think the fireplace was a factory option!! Thanks again Mike. D_TWEEZY--you're right about the measuring, but sorting all of those wires and securing them against the wall (and measuring for clearance) took me longer than anything. I like you idea about a drawer by the front bunk (next on the list??). Now if can just figure out how to reach those wires on the Genesis to fix the speakers!!

No worries. Glad everyone can enjoy it. My wife actually saw this mod done in a 5th wheel so told me she wanted it. And this was the result!

Really enjoying the pictures of the fireplace mod. Just wondering if anyone with a 21SS like me has thought about adding one to the panel over the water filter. being under the front bed, its not as ideal of a location as under the entertainment center, but it is unused space. I measured and I think an 18" one will fit. Just need to lose an outlet, but the good news is the outlet can then be used to plug the fireplace into.

this is awesome. I am guessing it is electric, and is wired into the main wiring of the camper? I have no clue how to do this, but hubby might. How do you turn it on and off, and regulate temperature?

I also think there should be a drawer in the cabinet near the front bunk in our 2014 ikss. Why just leave dead space there?

It is electric, I just plugged it in the same receptacle as the TV. It comes with a remote to access most of the settings (on/off, flame size and heat on/off). Temp. and heat without flame has to me set with the the buttons on the unit.
Yes a drawer would be nice in that front cabinet.
