Bottom construction of slide on 23tw

Inspecting the bottom of the dinette slide of New Gemini 23tw I noted that there are two open sections where you can see the bottom of the dinette looking past a rubber flap. Wind blows up through these gaps. Is this a defect or is this the way it's designed?

Photos taken looking up.

Generator access panel

I could swear (and, as my wife will attest, often do when it comes to Thor and our Gemini) that I saw a post in this forum about someone who couldn't access their generator controls because they couldn't remove the access panel. We have a 2022 Gemini 23TW and have that problem (among others). The panel will release but there is not enough room between the generator and the body/frame to move the panel up, down or sideways. Our sales guy was incredibly uninformed (I am SO trying to be nice) and told us that a dealer's service tech had to remove the panel - it was designed that way. Uh huh... Anyway, I have carried the TW to another dealer who is just as consternated as me and they can't figure out how to remove the faceplate to get to the controls/etc. that are actually on the front of the generator either. Thor has been no help at all. Has anyone else had a similar problem and, if so, how was it resolved (assuming it was resolved).

Thanks in advance.

Generator access

I remember reading that too. However I have a 2022 23tw and I can access the generator controls by un latching the cover and sliding it down to remove it. It is tight so perhaps your generator u it sits just a little different than mine.

regarding post 05/12/21 just running light power. I know this is an older post but I had same problem with my toad. Problem was trailer module located on the side of driver entry step. I had to remove black plastic step and some trim to get to it. i removed plugs and reseated them and fixed my problem. Ford mh assistance got me in contact with tech who was very good.

Roku Installation

Hi! We have a 2022 compass 23TW. I am trying to install a Roku stick on the kitchen side wall TV and cannot figure out how to access the HDMI input jacks on the back of the TV. It is attached almost flush to the wall and I can’t figure out how to move it away enough to access the jacks or any other method. Thor manuals and YouTube is useless. Also any ideas on how to plug in the Roku stick to electric? Thank you

I am not familiar with the tw model. On my 23tr I have HDMI hub above my refrigerator in cabinet. I plug my firestick into the input jack and plug power into plug inside that cabinet. You can then play roku on any tv in camper. Just select correct HDMI port with tv remote. My tv over the door has 2 catch releases behind tv but I don't mess with it unless cable is fuzzy or something. Hope it helps.

Wow… I knew there had to be a simpler way and there sure is. thanks so much for pointing out the cabinet above the fridge which is the same in ours. Now the only question left is which port did you use to get Roku availability on either TV? Thank you

My input is next to the power plug for the hub. Its on the side. You will have to unplug input from DVD from the input slot and plug in roku

I have attached a photo of the input center I found above the fridge. Can you advise if this is the same as yours and which input you use? Is it the one marked “HDMI Input” just to the right of the DC? Thank you!

I have a 22 23TW. I connected Roku to the hdmi cable in the AV cabinet above the fridge. Added a splitter for Roku or DVD.

Proper Storage

Hi! We purchased a 2022 Compass in May and are storing it on our driveway this Summer. I was just wondering which is better for the vehicle… using a 15 amp hookup to the house and keeping the power to the vehicle On… or disconnecting all shore power and turning the vehicle power switch Off? When the electric is in the On position our fridge turns on automatically and maintains a cold temperature at all times while obviously it shuts down when disconnected. I don’t know what other electrical systems may be on at all times other than the BMPro controller when connected to the limited shore power. Any thoughts for a rookie would be appreciated. Thank you

You can turn the fridge off if you want.
I installed a 30 amp circuit and is one of the best moves I've made.
I'm not sure but I think if you have everything else turned off then the 15 amp will at least keep batteries charged so you would have to leave power switch turned on

I usually leave it unplugged except in the winter where it is always plugged in the charging the coach batteries and use a smart charger for the chassis batteries. I also pull the fuse for the CO2/LP detector if its not being used for a month or so.
BTW Had EQ Systems levelers installed and am very pleased with how they work and the quality of work from them. Was supposed to have another leveler installed but when it cam down to it they could not install on my model of Compass

I always plug in whenever I'm near an outlet - summer or winter - and leave the store/use switch to use. At a minimum, it keeps the batteries charged. I turn the fridge off for the winter - but leave it on for the summer. (Quick get away).

There have been many forum members post about leaving their rigs plugged in. If you do that, keep an eye on the batteries if you have the typical flooded type. I once burned up a pair by letting them go dry when plugged in.

My preference would be to open the fridge doors and unplug until prep time for the next use. No wrong answer to this question.

Dill tpms

Decided to install a tpms, Dill uses sensors that mount inside the tire. Battery life is listed at 5-7 years.
Anyone have experience with them on a 2017 era Transit?
