The only thing I've heard about the '17 Seneca so far is that they have apparently gone back to the matching power seats up front instead of the "Freightliner Gray" air-ride seats.

2017 seneca changes

I'm in the process of ordering a 2017 and have questions my sales person could not answer so I asked the following questions to Jayco. I did not see any changes for the front seats. I like all the changes and addition that Jayco is making to the 2017 Seneca


1. Will this model have the update Girard Generation 3 GSWH-2? Yes, the 2017 Senecas will have the 3rd generation water heater


2. I've read that the ODWH have an issue Don't know what the issue is guess it doesn't work at an elevation above 7k'. Comments? I haven't heard anything about the units not working at a specific elevation. I do know we had some issues with the 2nd generation ODWH, but most of them were actually operator errors. The 2nd generation operated much differently than a typical residential unit, which caused quite a few problems for customers. The 3rd generation has been modified to function more like a residential water heater, but has been much easier for our customers to use.


3. I've seen pictures of the 2017 37TS, did you go back to the rectangle shower with a seat in the shower? I sure hope so! Yes, you will have the rectangular shower in your 2017 37TS. I have attached a photo to this email.


4. Did you do away with those UGLY UGLY sorry sinks and went back to stainless steal sinks. I hope so! Another yes! We have moved to the stainless steel sinks in our Senecas.


5. Does the bedroom bed storage have gas struts vs the stick to hold the bed up? the 37TS does not have the gas struts under the bed. The base of the bed does not move when the slide comes in and out, so there is no way to connect the struts. The only Seneca that does use the struts is the 37FS where the bed is not in the slide.


6. Regarding the dinette, were wanting the wrap-around booth not the dinette with the queen size bed. The wrap-around is a standard feature not a option correct? This was a change for the 2017 37TS. The NON wrap around dinette with the long couch is now standard. If you want the wrap around style, you will want to contact your dealer right away to make this change!

The only option we ordered is the entertainment system.

Is there any other changes for the 2017 37TS? I have attached the list of changes we made for the 2017 Senecas.

Sounds like it's moot, but we've run our Gen 2 Girard at elevations way over 7000' now several times and have had no issues.

Thanks johnboy on the '17 updates. The one thing I see is the roller shade for the entry door! Can't believe they didn't have this on the '16 model. They must not have test camped in one with their DW!

Try and go in/out with that shade drawn for afternoon sun... Jayco should have put the shade ON the Door.
