We purchase a used 2008 23B 2 years ago after a pop up prior. Don't get too worried about the walk through. There is so much great info here, youtube, etc. You can get answers and ideas easily. Pay closest attention to winterizing! One thought, get a memory foam mattress topper!! Your body will appreciate it. Enjoy.

Looks like you got good advice. We had a 23b for 6 years and loved it.

Check out Popup Gizmos for great tent-end covers. They protect the canvas, keep you cooler in the heat, warmer in the cold, and look a lot better than tarps.

Thanks everyone for the tips!! Walk through/orientation went VERY well!! Everything is in great working order for the most part. The only issue was it showed the black tank being 1/3 full when it should be empty. He explained the ice cube trick and said if that doesn't resolve the issue, call them back and they'll deal with it. Fingers crossed that's all it is.

We have a 2004 X23b...The black tank always show 2/3 full....no one has been able to solve the mystery of the black tank sensors yet, so don't be surprised if it never becomes accurate.

Hm! That's interesting... I hope that's not the case for us! How do you deal with it?

Use your phone. We did and you'd be surprised how much you refer to it.

In alot of cases, something is on the sensor. Have also heard they can just be bad. In the end (pun intended), monitor the tank. Don't empty too soon and definately not too late!

Fairly easy. When you flush look down the hole. I like to have the water level fairly close to the top of the tank when I dump, this will allow for good flow to push all that "stuff" down the drain.

Yep...That's all we do. We generally don't camp for more than 3-4 nights at a time, so it's never been full enough to worry about. Plus....when you consider that the fresh water tank is 30 gallons and your black tank capacity is 30 gallons, plus you use about half your water to the grey tank, you don't really fill up the black tank if you're dumping between trips.
