The best I can determine my lights don't have switches on the individual lights to be able to turn off individual lights.
Yes that was our concern, we live in the country and the camper is parked right behind the house, (it is very dark back there at night) we had individual switches on each light in the Kodiak, it was fine for the smaller camper,

I saw the demo of the 23ws online and was concerned about all the lights coming on at once when I step in the door, but my post is that "surprisingly" we like them all coming on at once, it would be too much running around and turning a bunch of lights on all the time trying to see what is going on in such a big area.

Once you get settled in you can turn on the reading lights over the sofa and turn on the stove light (and turn off the 6 main LED lights) and there is even one light overhead back by the 2 doors that looks like the others but has a switch in the center "quite clever" you can turn on also to give it that lower light feel.Yes the switch is right at the control center, I am stunned how much I like this set up.

Nice work on the Apple TV....looks great. I hope my favorite stomping ground adds wifi one of these days so I can work from the campground. That is a nice looking entertainment center...certainly better than my dk, though I do like the big shelf I have for a dish receiver.

I believe my master switch turns on 1 or 2 lights but I never use it because I always hit the slide or awning switch on accident. Do you still have the option to turn some of them off manually so you can configure how many come on with the switch? I know even my switched lights still have the individual control.

I am very gratified to hear how impessed you are with the camper in general and the lighting in particular! Makes me want to go right out and pick mine up

No, the lights can't be turned off individually, it is kinda the main point i am trying to get across, my surprise in how much I like them that way.

I must say I really like how this thing is put together more and more, I can't wait to go camping! We have 2 big trips planned so all I need is good weather!

Ok, look slightly to the left and up from the red light, you can just see a tiny bit of the A/tv unit, now when I swing the tv out a little you can see how it is mounted, since there is a slight gap around the tv, the infrared remote works, but I use the app on my iPhone so I just have to be near it, you can run it from the back room with the phone, (i know why would you but it would work, the app must not be infrared)

Nice I have the 2015 23ikss and I store my ATV on the back of the TV with Velcro, works well did not want to mount it. I also have ATT service and have the entire Roo with WiFi Wireless service so we don't have to bother with our phones. We use main TV in living room and I have a second TV in the cubby of the back bunk 24", for guests.

I plan on installing a Progressive 30amp Protector, and thinking of mounting a Dirt Devil or Dometic Central Vac in one of the Front cabinets so I don't have to carry a vacuum as they also draw a lot of amps.

I too have a 2016 Roo 23ws, but all the lights on mine have individual switches beside the main one.
I think at some point in the production year, Rockwood changed a few things.
I also read that some 23ws have an AC duct in the rear bedroom. Mine is outside the bedroom about 6 inches from the door. I can still turn the duct and point it through the opening at the top of the door.....

It is very interesting tracking some of the changes Rockwood made to their models mid year. There are marked differences between early 2016 233S's versus ours, for example, and we could have saved a few bucks buying an earlier model. However my wife in particular liked the extra storage and the linen closet and enclosed shower in the bathroom in the later models in particular, so that is what we decided to buy.

Drenjoet: there are threads on this forum about people adding the A/C vent you are lacking. Sounds very easy to do.

Here in Maine, the AC is not used too often ..... I know it would be an easy mod, but not a priority. Besides since the duct is next to the door, it will work just fine !
