I used a 1/4 in thick piece of birch as a shelf attached with ss screws and aluminum angle stock about one inch below lip of rack. Ok for holding small items. Can still slip iPads or magazines below. Dont have a good picture right now.

Plumbing diagram

Does anyone have a plumbing diagram for our 23FB? I'm interested how the piping goes from the hot water tank to the shower and to the other side. trying to find all the connections that might leak.

thanks

23 FB Queen to twin

My wife and I really like the twin units but are pressed for space to store our AS so we purchased a 23 FB last year. We continued to have twin envy until recently. We like the additional room to move around and storage under beds. Also, wonderful to have the roadside exterior storage as convenient for power cord.

We contacted Brad Herring at the AS service Dept and sure enough he could make our dreams come true and within a month of our first contact we were sleeping in our 2017 Serenety 23 FBT

Our technician Brent did an outstanding job on this conversion, he is very talented!! Not to mention just a super nice guy! He was very thorough in reviewing/explaining the plan and getting our input - from lights and electric plug relocation to storage design between beds. His attention to detail and craftsmanship is to be commended.

Of course none of this could have happened if Brad hadnt researched the possibility of this conversion and responded to us so quickly! (Sorry Flying Cloud 25 &#128579.We appreciate the time Brad took to answer all our questions and providing suggestions/options for us to consider. His expertise, knowledge and patience is vast!

The total experience from start to finish was outstanding and we look forward to enjoying our new 23FBT for many years to come, and still park it in our carport!

23FB Dinette Table Adjustment

There are a lot of comments about the dinette in the 23FB.

I thought there may be some interest in this modification we just had done in Jackson Center.

Ours is a 2017 23FB International. The new setup emulates the older style 23FB dinette.
  1. New table top was made. It is longer and attaches to the side-wall. It is also narrower - the edge of the table now lines up with the edge of the seat. Huge difference. Much more comfortable, more room on the table, no more wobble.
  2. JC also removed the seat that ran along the wall side.

Note following this modification the table height cannot be adjusted, nor can the dinette be converted into a bed.

Streamer - thanks for sharing. Does the area over the wheel well give you any value? Also, is the space under the seats a drawer or a locker? Pat

Not really - the area over the wheel well is dead air similar to the old style 23FB. Under the seats is the original locker containing a plastic tub.

For reference, this is a picture of the old style 23FB dinette.
