Welcome and congrats koshi 1709! We bought our 230DS back in April and have used it 7 times. I would replace the bathroom faucet with a basic "Bar" faucet, it makes washing your hands a whole lot easier. We also upgraded the entertainment system. The one small problem we have is a intermittent water leak from under the fridge. I think it is condensation not draining correcly, but not sure. This weekend I am opening it up and checking it out.

Let me know if you have any specific questions and I will do my best to get you an answer.

Later Man!

This is the first RV we have owned and purchased new in 2010. Since we really didn't know what we were doing we only stayed at full hook up parks. Last week we went to Disneyland with our 3 year old granddaughter and on the way home she had to go potty. Since we were in the desert between Las Vegas and Reno we stopped along the road to take her in the trailer to take care of business. Guess what no power!! She said "grandpa I don't go potty in the dark!!"

After a post from a member on a cut off switch for the battery we went searching for it today. It is under the kitchen sink on the front wall of the left cabinet. Silver knob. We pulled it out and guess what power!! I guess we are lucky as we always had the external power plugged in as we store in our garage. If the cutoff had been on the battery would be gone!!

The next item our trip in June is a small leak under the floor flush for the toilet. It has not leaked before so hopefully it is something loose from all the movement from the wind on the last trip.

Default 2008 DS 230 Shower curtain and stall

Has anyone found a better solution to the small shower stall? I was thinking of one of the movable shower rods but the walls and not in line so I don't think that will work. I would also like to do something better than the white plastic curtain. Any ideas?

Our stall had rippled on top and bottom and pulled away from the wall on top. We got plastic rivets at the local RV parts store. Wow what a difference and with caulking like new.
