Will be glad to post pix when we get it.

23 GT - First time buyer

If anything like the 2020 23’ GT FTB you’ll love it! The beds are incredibly comfortable and the extra space in the bedroom is awesome! We removed the port side doors below the bed for more comfort. We would snag items on the hinges and they would pop off. Much better for us to access underneath.

We pull it with our 2013 Tahoe. When the Blue Ox is connected our back door will still open fully so dog has her bed and we have access.

Enjoy your new GT’s!!

Just got mine, will be pulling with a 2020 F150 (put deposit down for a 2021) and Blue Ox Swaypro. Did the lift kit, Dish antenna, Weboost, gray, fresh tanks and elbows to sewer discharge warmers and a couple of extra solar panels (had to sacrifice one skylight though, but have so many windows anyway). Love the corian kitchen top fur hate the Formica dinette and bathroom sink top. Anyone with experience/ideas on how to replace them with corian or other solid material, not a laminate, with round edges that won't hurt arms while working (at the dinette, that is).?

Can you please elaborate/illustrate us on that modification? Sounds interesting.

2-way 6.8 cu ft Fridge

I see that the 2021 AS GT 23 FBT now includes the 2-Way Fridge (AC-DC only). Anyone know how many Amps it draws per hour? Trying to figure out my battery needs for extended trips with no shore power. Doing some planning as my AS arrives later this Spring. Thanks.

Running amperage is 5.2. How many amps you’ll actually use per hour depends on ambient temperature and how often you open the doors. I haven’t had the opportunity to boondock with mine yet but an Australian distributor of the same unit estimates you’ll use approximately 50 amps per day at 30C/87F. https://www.keoghsmarine.com.au/nova...nd-rvs-rfu6800.

23 FBT GT arrives in April - delivery checklist

My 2021 arrives in April. I've seen some posts about a "checklist" for delivery. Does any have access to such a checklist?

One is provided by AS and is included on the paperwork you get on the canvas bag. In my experience, no dealer goes through that list with the buyer, but you can insist they do. I suggest you do. Once you take delivery, getting a new appointment to remediate any shortage may take you weeks or months, when anything you find on the spot at delivery, can/should be addressed also on the spot. There are many issues you need to be aware before you take off on your shakedown ‘cruise’, your first trip. Or it can be ruined, interrupted before it begins. Find out all the bypass valves’ locations. Take a pic of all the fuses and get spares (included the one for the hitch, near or inside the battery compartment), understand the deployment and stowage of awning, stabilizing jacks, location and access to spare tire, etc. Tire lugs removing tool, etc is not fun to lean on conditions less ideal than the shop.

Randythurman,
Here is a checklist that can be modified for any model. Pretty much covers all the important items to inspect.
Make sure you bring a flashlight to look into all the nooks and crannies.
