x23b single exhaust fan?

I'm looking at the x23b and starcraft 227ck and I was surprised to see they only had a single exhaust fan in the bathroom. Some of the other models have another one in the living area. I'm curious if people find that it's an issue? Can you move enough air to do things like clear out the cooking air, pull out heat and cooler air from the bunk ends, and move the air enough to help with condensation with the single bathroom fan? Do most people add a second one? Can you use the A/C unit to vent out air in exhaust mode perhaps?

My brother has a 28' bunkhouse and it only has the single vent in the bathroom. I wish they would have put one in the living room or front bedroom. My parents have a 26' and they have one in the living room/kitchen and another in the bathroom which I like a lot better.

I feel your pain. Even with my parents camper with the two vents, the sometimes have to remove the battery in the smoke detector when cooking.

Isn't there one over the stove? In the range hood.

Ah, that's a good point. I didn't count that one. I wonder how much air those things pull through and it's good enough to help with other uses like pulling general heat out of the box and such.

I used the exhaust fan via range hood while cooking bacon a couple of weeks ago - worked well enough. Plus you can put the a/c on "fan" which works fine. As for the bunkends, we use those fan/light combos that plug into that little port at the ceiling at each end (like we had in the pop up). Those things are awesome. We have no issues with a lack of air movement inside.

Our range hood worked well once I remembered that there was a flap on the outside that needed to be opened. Little details that make me think I should have video recorded the orientation at the dealer when we picked it up. I keep forgetting that my memory isn't a good as it used to be.

We have a 23B; I to was questioning only having the one roof vent. I to wished there was a 2nd vent upfront, but the oem fan works quite well.

I installed powerpoints in the bunks for the fan/light combo units, and they move a lot of air.

I have no issues with condensation.
