Just a further note on the advantage of LEDs... I was curious about the amount of amps different components in my Roo were pulling so I hooked up my multimeter. Here are the results in regard to my lighting: 1 traditional incandescent bulb was using 1.42amps. Most of my light fixtures take 2 bulbs. The reading with both bulbs was 2.74amps. One of the LED replacements I use read 0.205amps and the fixture with both bulbs averaged 0.415amps. (There was slight variation between fixtures, even though they all have the same type of LEDs. My Roo has 20 interior bulbs. With ALL the interior lights on, the LEDs used 4.1amps! That is less power than only 3 incandescent bulbs would use, bulbs not fixtures! All lights on using incandescent bulbs would use over 28amps. So if you dry camp, LEDs are a no brainer. But as mentioned already, it is worth spending extra for a high quality LED replacement. I am sure that there is a wide range of power use among all the different types and brands of LEDs available. The readings above were with taken with the LEDs I chose and tradition 921 wedge type incandescent bulbs.

And what is wrong with being 5 feet tall?!?!
Maybe it is you that are too tall - have you ever thought of that???

I like your shower curtain mod. I think your shower curtain is more substantial than our plastic one. I may have find a better one.

I just bought a 233S and take delivery in about a week. I'm looking forward to doing some of these mods. I had never heard of that screen. Might be one of the things on my mod list.

As for the mods, I'll second the motion that for a dry camper it is the only way to go. I replaced all my bulbs in my pop up and drastically increased my dry camping time. I bought from Super Bright LEDs. I paid a high price, but friends that went with bargain basement LEDs ended up with their bulbs lasting less than a year. In this arena, you certainly get what you pay for.

FYI, in case you didn't know. Your 233S may already have LED bulbs. I ordered a 21SS on Halloween and picked it up on 2/9 and it did have LED bulbs.

Had no idea. I don't get it until Thursday. One of the first things on my list was to take an inventory of what LEDs I need to order. That would be very cool if I don't need to buy a bunch of replacement LEDs.

Grege is absolutely correct! Depending on the build date your unit will have LED's in it. Mine has a build date of 10/17/12 and it has LED's. I was at an RV show here in town and walked thru a 233s and it was built 9/7/12 and it did not have LED's. The conversion to LED's seems to have happened sometime between those dates last year. One can never be certain but that seems to be some good data to go on.
