Congrats on the 23WS. Was not yet available when we purchased or might have considered, although we really like the island. We carry extra items stored in totes in the RV when traveling. The totes are then stacked outside next to the RV after we are set up so we always lost that space with our old non slide RV and now we're storing under the slide. We like to park ourselves at the campfire or under the EZ up. Never got into sitting right outside the RV.
My big, and only, complaint about the 23IKSS (rant alert) is the top venting of the fridge through the slide wall. I guess all in slide fridges are like this, but with the baffle in place there is very little room for air to exhaust from the over worked fan. Seems a competent engineer could have come up with something better than cutting a hole, blocking most of it with a baffle and then popping in the same cover as in the bottom.
(Rant over). It works OK so far and I have 5 years of fridge coverage from Dometic.
