We bought a ROO 233 in July...Have been out twice with no problems. Had a couple other fellow campers stop by to look at the expandable beds. People think they are really great!

One Tip we tried...underneath the beds we put a shower rod holder with suction cups to add stability to the camper...one under each kids bed and two under ours. Seems to really help the stability/rocking of the camper. They cost only $10 each on the internet.

Any additional ROO tips?

We are a new Roo 23SS owner, ours was used a few times before we bought it. We took it our for our "maiden voyage" this weekend. Two problems... We had no electricity, so had the Dometic Refigerator running on propane. It kept it cool, but on the 2nd night, the check light started clicking. The other problem is the DVD, CD player that came with the unit. The alarm is set, and I am unable to turn it off, during the night it goes off. Other than those two problems, we absolutly love the unit.

Check the charge on the battery. Probably the answer to both problems. My CD player has a low voltage alarm, and low voltage also would cause the refer problem. With no electricity, nust use battery sparingly.

Roo 233 Too :)

We have an 09' 233 and absolutely love it. We got 30 days in this summer, these rigs are simply great. I am interested in hearing some more tips and tricks so I can be better prepared next year

Anyone have recommendations for miles between repack and grease??

Cheers

Cool

If you alllow me... will be joining the group shortly (a 19 ft..... Shamrock.... a close relative, for April '10) - it's very quiet in the Shamrock forum

Not sure a forum is needed for each brand... I'll be lurking around to get to know my Roo bros.

We own a 233S and love it. Hoping to mount a bike rack to the bumper for this season. Any ideas on support straps being attached to the back corners?

Receiver pictures

I went to a local metal supply shop, picked up a receiver hitch which was 12 inches in length, and some angle iron. I then cut the angle iron the length between the two frames, and placed them where I could tack a weld to the rear bumper and a cross member on the frame, then also welded directly to the frame. Then I welded two pieces of angle iron to the receiver hitch so that it is long enough to fit the previous mentioned angle irons, and welded to them. I allowed the receiver to stick out an inch or so beyond the rear bumper and the bike rack I use is a Thule 5 bike rack which fits into any 2" receiver. Wallah... The receiver hitch does not require any suppport straps and the bikes are very secure when loaded.
