I added a few plastic pieces to both edges where the shower curtain meets the wall. Hopefully this will solve the problem.

The towel hook is nothing exceptional or ingenious, but we just put it on the door so I thought I'd include it.

Where did you get the plastic pieces for the shower?

I bought everything at my local Lowes store. Each piece of plastic was a couple of bucks, and I used stainless screws (with washers and caulk) to secure them. Other than using a Dremel to soften/round the one corner, I did not otherwise modify the plastic. The total cost was somewhere around $10-15.

I know this is an old thread, but has anyone had any problem with the bathroom vanity top getting moisture from shower and expanding? We have only had our camper 8 months and camped 4 times. This weekend I noticed the edge against the shower is swollen and the formica/glue etc is coming off. We have a 2013 Rockwood Roo 23SS. We had a 2006 Rockwood 233 prior and never had this issue. It's basically the same shower, same curtain, etc but the layout is reversed. I can't figure out why it is occuring in the new camper and hope this would be a warranty item. I wonder if the shower curtain is the culprit, but again appears to be the same curtain as in older model.

I have a 2013. 23SS. Let me know if you figure what's happening to your vanity top. Are you venting the humidity? Vent open and fan running?

Are you getting steam coming up from the bottom and underneath the shower curtain and its hit the vanity on the way up?

Sorry for so many questions but you have me curious ... And worried

Yes. We vent with fan after every shower until everything is dry. . I actually run vent during shower but not sure wife does during shower. I remember when we first used the shower it seemed the water went through the curtain a bit even though it appears to be same as previous curtain model.

Only other thing I can think of is that shower curtain is damp when pulled back and next to vanity while drying. But again no different from my 2006.

Outside stove

Well it's been a year since my last post. So what's up now? Outside stove! I purchased a three burner stove, similar to the one inside and then used the mount from the Barbecue to mount it outside and hook it into the gas hose. I wasn't using the originla Barbecue anyway, to small. It works and this weekend Tahoe trip will be it's 1st onsite (in wind) test.

No prob' with shower curtain. For runnin the furnace all night, I supplement with Mr Buddy propane heater. These are designed for interior use. I also made thermal blankets to cover the "Tents".

Another thing on the furnace. I'm a very light sleeper and the furnace was simply not going to work as delivered, so I blocked off that gold metal screen door in front, not really neccessary, the unit gets plenty of air circulation and I can crack open the door. I also covered the entire furnace unit (metal housing) in sound deadening material (dynamat). Of course keeping any vent holes open. It has significantly quieted the system.

Atta way JB. How is the weight of the 3 burner grill compared to the BBQ that would mount on the outer wall?

I find that the one it came with for the outside mount, was too small and doesn't heat as quickly.
