New Roo 23IKSS partitions

For those of you with 23LKSS trailers how did you get the partition that separates the water pump from the rear storage out of the back hatch? I have the screws out but I have yet to figure the puzzle as to how to fit it out the hatch. I keep moving it around to get it out of the way of what ever I am working on!

I place mine in the back over the furnace as long as the screws are out I just push it back, don't leave it like that other than to work in the back and put it right back together when I am done

I took it out the front hatch inside. Also put in a milk crate for storage.

I took it out on mine, makes it easier to work on plumbing stuff in there. I think I had to bend it a bit to get it out the of the hatch. Also I moved the spare tire over a bit so the door on the hatch can open up more.

Good idea, I thought of taking it off the trailer and just putting it in my pickup bed so I can put a bike rack on the back for two bikes

Not a good idea. The bumper is not rated for anything except the spare tire.

Oh, and I am not welding anything to the frame I would rather just put bikes in the pickup bed, but I thought bumper would hold 300#'s? So if I removed the tire and put a rack and two bikes that wouldn't work?

Not recommended. Several have lost their bumpers doing this. It is not really a bumper but a storage tube. As you go over bumps, the load bounces up and down weakening the welds and off comes the bumper. If you have a camper under warranty it will VOID the warranty.
