Congrats on your new camper(s)
We have been in our 2011 233s for over a year now and absolutely love it. We are a family of six, and routinely have someone else traveling with us. Camped over 30 nights this year, longest stretch was 12. We have slept as many as 11 in the camper and that was without putting the dinette down (cot on the floor). We, too, have noticed that the fridge doesn't really keep up like I would like. I have added the internal dual 12v fans and can't really say whether they've made a difference (inexpensive mod, though). Been looking into mounting a fan in the opening of the rear bunk to help draw in air, however, find that the hottest parts of the day are times there shouldn't be anyone in the bed. It's been tolerable at night...I've slept many, many nights in what my kids call "the man cave"
One question for everyone...have you had any trouble closing your slide-out after it's been out for a couple of days? I typically have to go outside and push on it while someone is pressing the button. Been in the shop once...headed in again
It's awesome to see so many people with this model now. When I first joined, not too many of us on the forum. I've included some pics of various mods I've done, FWIW...I look forward to seeing your mods, as well. One thing I haven't tackled yet...a TV mounted on the shelf as you walk in...maybe one day
