It comes on maybe once every few hours. I'll have them check it when I go in for service next month. Failing that I'll need to learn about accumulators.

If you install an accumulator, include an adjustable pressure regulator on the shore supply side. Pat

Rear camera

Rear camera links up and has sound but no picture. Any ideas? It worked in the drive a month ago but it looks like a cloud

Could it be a spider built a web over the camera lens?

Yeah I checked that and noticed moisture on the inside of the lens. Maybe it got full of water and I'm sure that wouldn't help

Way back in the posts, I remember seeing a partial hole cut thru the vinyl flooring... where the furnace vent(s) ducts screw to the floor with hole cut "haphazardly" cut... not the full size of the hole thru the plywood.

Mine are like that and the holes would flow maybe 1/3 the air based on the hole cut with razor knife and I am sure this is intentional. I left them that way, because I would just as soon not have heat wasted warming a less than freezing underbelly. My 23 has a furnace that is really not up to the task.

I had the fridge fans out today and thought I would post a pic of the housing I built for DC/DC converter and digital thermostat and wiring. Only awkward thing is that its Celsius only. I have it set to close at 31c and with the hysteresis set to 5, it turns off at 26c on the dot. That probably should be set to 3. I leave the inside switch on all the time.

It can also provide contact closure when temperature drops to a certain point.

Thanks for the pics and layout. I'm going to do mine next spring. Have the parts already. John

Why the DC/DC converter? Is this so you can run the fridge off battery while driving, vs propane? Or, is this more accurate temp control? Knock on wood, our fridge has been working great for years.
I agree also on opening the heat vents up to the water tanks. I’m not really planning on camping in sub freezing temps. I don’t mind a little frost, but we will move before we are in hard freezing temps. The furnace seems to do ok for us when we need it. Doesn’t push very much heat into the bath or bedroom, but that’s been ok. The upside is, it’s not draining the batteries as quickly..

The solution to the factory installed solitary fan in the top vent on our 2015 23D that was a complete waste of time is shown below. The fans come on whenever the Dan Foss freon based compressor in the Vitrifrigo DP150i is running on either 120Vac or 12Vdc.

The photo with one fan is the factory installation when we had the stock Dometic refrigerator. The modification to the three exhaust fans with fully blocked off top vent area forces all the air to come in the bottom vent and bring cooling air flow past the refrigerator. The new fridge with separate freezer is shown after installation.

The temperature control module I picked has a max voltage of 12.5, since I charge at 14.4 to 14.6 (way too high for it) so after reading about failures with it I decided to add this converter to deliver 9v no matter the input voltage. There are other ways to limit to 12v, such as, a zener diode. This was just easier IMO.

I took others advice and fully closed of the top vent exhaust side, so air has to flow thru the fan openings, whether running or not.

Bedroom windows closing on lowest setting

After retiring in June then spending seven weeks on the road and just now settling in as the house-husband I've finally had the time to work through about the first forty pages of the 23FB thread. Very helpful.

With that said - if someone has raised this question in the following 68 pages, my apologies. I'll get there eventually.

On our road trip I noticed that the curbside and street side windows in the bedroom of our 2018 23FB, when set on the lowest of the three "open" settings, will close all the way. Very inconvenient when your camping in Montana and want just a little air through the room overnight without having to run the fan. I can find no adjustment and, of course, the other two settings work just fine because they have a little more wiggle room.

Before I go back to the dealer in Salt Lake City (whom I highly recommend) to get a couple of other things fixed before my two year warranty runs out in the spring I thought I'd see if there's an easy fix.
Thanks in advance for any help.
