Roo 23SS

Hello
I have questions on my roo. I am almost done getting my new to me unit ready for the first trip.
1). The bathroom does not have a toilet paper holder. Any ideas?
2) this unit did not have a doc outlet, to charge phones.
3) I have not found a good way to turn the lights on at the door.

Thanks

The TP holder is usually included but not installed since people are particular about where they like their holder. Our TP holder was tossed in the drawer under the dinette seat. Since you say this is a new to me unit, I am thinking you are not the first owner of this unit...the previous owner may never have installed the holder. Just go to Lowe's or Home Depot and pick one out that you like and install it. For the phones, we plug them into any of the outlets using our chargers that we use at home, the AC charger.
Not sure what you mean about the lights.

We installed the paper holder on the inside of the bathroom vanity door.
That way it was out of the way and didn't get wet.
Older Roo/Shamrock hybrids didn't come with a 12v or USB outlets.

I installed a 400w inverter on the side of the tv cabinet.
It has USB outlets.
So we use it for power for tv and DVD player and recharging electronic devices.

Entrance " light switches" are a "Crap Shoot" on location and ease to access in Most RV's! Without going to Great effort most members use a "Batt operated LED motion light at the Door,then you can find the lights inside the RV! The LED light will last all camping season. Maybe someday they will Place light switches like in our Houses? Youroo!!

The come in lots of versions - just go to Walmart, Home Depot or Lowes.

Thanks for the ideas . I had a older Kiwi that had a light switch next to the door and cigarette lighter 12v socket. I was very surprise that the 2010 roo did not have neither. A power inverter would help, but still no place to plug in. I need to do some test but it looks like the antenna bolster might have power (12 volts)

Max: You MIGHT have a 12 volt lighter socket behind your TV.

rockfordroo said it...my 2012 year 233S has a USB outlet behind the TV installed right next to the cable jack outlet box.
