My 23FB has a GFI outside outlet on the roadside rear corner that loves to get wet and pop the GFI...cheap cover does not seal well.

David,

I guess that you have already checked the outside 120-volt receptacle for dampness... I'll go out and walk around ours and see if there is anything else [more or less] obvious to check.

Rob

OK, David, I think that you probably have more "equipment" than we do, but the only outside 120-volt potential exposure is (1) curb-side receptacle, (2) AC power cord connection, and (3) inside refrigerator compartment. That's about the best I can do from here.

Rob

We have the gap in our front curbside cover. It allows leaves to settle in, as the lower seal seems to hold everything in. I just clean it inside the cover, a couple of times a year. I'm following along even though I have the FB. There's a fair amount in common. (14" tires..)
Hope you find a fix for the gap-itis, and post it here.
Thx

Front Window Gap

Ours has the same gap. I tried using 1/2 inch foam pipe insulation. The problem is that the gap is not consistant. It is annoying and we are looking for an answer also

Front Window Shade

We have a 2016 23d and found that the front curtains were a pain to close at night. We ended up installing a shade on the center part of the front wrap around window. It makes it easier to close up at night.

Gfi

The problem with my GFI turned out to be the outside 120V plug, ran a small heater blowing into it for a few hours and it dryed out. Anyone replaced the factory cover with one that is a bit more waterproof?

One little mod I did was to add some insulation to the wall in the fridge compartment on the aft side, the closet now stays a bit cooler, was getting a lot of heat transfer. Quick and easy and MAY help the A/C in our warm Texas summers!

Glad you solved the GFI problem.

Can you give us the source of the insulation you used? That's certainly a worthwhile project... the closet was does get toasty.

I wonder of these outlet covers would help.

Where I'd like to stuff some insulation is at the top, but I may need to pull the fridge to get to it.

The insulation I used was a frostking product from Home Depot for A/C and heater ducts, it is self adhesive and has seemed to stay put very well for about three months, including some very warm days in south Texas, right now in Colorado so it has seen temps from hi 90s to 17 with no signs of coming loose. I have also put a strip above and am watching it closely as I could not find a true max temp rating for it.
As for the outlet cover I will look at a few sealed covers in a few days when I go to Denver to do some shopping, if it rains before then I will tape it up to keep water out.

The main reason I did the fan upgrade i posted above was to eliminate that heat transfer. Now I can't even tell, barely any heat buildup.

The insulation idea is a good one, and I would watch to make sure it can handle the heat.

I had a product I want sure about so I tested it myself. I needed it to withstand 160 degree max. I used my heat gun set at 500. It melted. Turned it down incrementally and used heat o 300 and it withheld. So I knew it was good at 160.

The wrong rates insulation could cause a great danger. I would call the manufacturer and try to track that down or test the limits yourself.
