My New 2017 x23b thoghts

Just brought home my new 2017 x23b, copper decor looks great, 15 LED lights inside (I think they added some for 2017), solar prep. I like the lighter gray exterior too.
Not crazy about the new bunk end latches. They are not that sturdy and they don't provide much force against the seal when closed.
2 issues
Leak in the front right outside storage area, about 10" inside
Back bunk door is bowed out in the middle, leaked on the drive home but not day 2 sitting in the driveway.
I'd like to get the rear bunk door replaced under warranty.
Any words of advice on getting that replaced?

If it's bowed, I'm sure they would do it. I have had my bunks leak, only when we have had the fabric caught in the seals when it's closed up. It is really difficult to see the top. We are very careful to check where the fabric is at as we close it up.

We saw the new 23B at the camping show in February. I like the new frame and axles/tires. Never noticed the latches.

I'm not familiar with the latch system on either of those. The one on my X20E is pretty flawless so I can't imagine that Jayco has changed it much. The one's on my hybrid are like the one's in this . Are yours different than this?

Oh, yuk. Don't like those at all. I wonder why they would have changed it? This is like the table legs. Went from a simple design to a Rube Goldberg setup.

KDUNK1,

I am wondering what the dry weight on the yellow sticker is for the 2017 year, and what is the cargo carry capacity?

Thanks!

The Beave
