Switz has a Texas vendor that has done custom work for him. Either PM him or search the 23 threads. He has a D, but posts here too. I think he posted the name of the company, but it was in or around the beginning of this thread.

My thoughts on a bathroom vent.
If you add a small vent, you still need to provide a way for outside air to enter. This is not your sticks and bricks home that leaks air in from gaps and cracks.
I think it would be better, if using the rear window for that purpose, that there is a way to "lock" it in a barely open position. Never looked at that but I will.
I noticed that newer models the bathroom door has no gap at the top like mine does. I am sure that is for bathroom exhaust and I am sure AS knew you have to have the rear window open. Did they consider what that would be like in Winter, probably not.
Keep in mind our trailers are not close to being 4 season "comfortable".

Maybe they could have fit a fan near the toilet vent?

Doesnít seem like it would have been that difficult, but they made the decision to skip the vent fan. So weíre stuck with the Fantastic Fan just outside the door.

New subject and seeking help / advice. I need to replace the seal around the screen door. I know what it there, what there is of it, is not original. What is the correct way to seal the screen door to the jam / surround?
I tried searching for it, but I get a zillion hits because of "door", apparently the search here is for every word, not specific combinations of words or phrases.

Check the online parts catalog at Airstream for your year and model trailer. Or call Airstream and ask them. The information will be from the horse's mouth.

I recently purchased a LevelMate Pro for my 23FB. I’ll install it before the spring camping season begins. For those of you who have installed one in a 23FB, where did you mount the transmitter unit? It needs to be mounted on a flat surface that is parallel to the long axis of the trailer. I am considering mounting it inside the bathroom cabinet, or inside the small cabinet under the street side wardrobe. My concern with mounting it in the bathroom is that the transmitter will be too far away from the truck to provide a reliable signal.

Mounted the transmitter inside the driver side overhead cabinet above the bed, outside cabinet wall. No signal issues

Dennis,
We mounted our below the bank of switches as you open the entry door. Easy to switch on/off. Distance not a problem.

Mattress in FB // new owners

Hi all!
My fiancť and I are new owners of a 2015 23FB. We are loving reading through the threads and learning new things.

Iím sure I will have more questions coming up.. but for now Iím curious about bed/mattress modifications. Iíve searched this/other threads a lot but havenít come up with much.

Has anyone put a regular sized Queen foam mattress in the 23FB? I understand the width should be almost the same but that the length might be a little long. We are contemplating cutting our foam mattress so that it fits on the bed base that is there. We just are not fans of the spring mattress (or at least it feels like springs) in the 2015 stock mattress.
Thanks!

May be a silly question but I’m a newbie.. poo pouri is ok to use in the AS toilet correct? Guessing it’s safe and won’t break down plastic in the tanks?

Am I wrong in thinking that the transmitter needs to be mounted on the long axis of the trailer? It sounds like yours is perpendicular to the long axis.

You can mount the transmitter in any direction that works for you. It just needs to be somewhat level. You must select the direction of the unit when you originally set it up.
