I would agree with a lot of the previous posts when it comes to things that they could have done but didn't which wouldn't have added much to the costs. Wind sensor for electrical awning. I will install this myself in the next little while. It's a hundred dollar item but had they added it from the factory it would have been only a tenth of the cost. A vent opening in the main living area. It's rather dark in our trailer on overcast days, that would have made a big difference. A light for the outside stairs which are hard to see even with the outside light on. Have since added one. A better set of tires than the Marathons from China. Rigid heating ducts. One of our lines were ripped almost in half. Better tank monitors. It was so disappointing to see that old monitor in our trailer. A light in our storage compartment. Will add one myself. I guess that's about it. Oh oh oh, one more thing. Get rid of those cheap cheap plastic sinks.

I can't change your arm length or install a "thingy", but I had the same problem. This is how I solved it.

I went to the local hardware store and bought a magnetic door latch. If it is very windy I would not trust it, but in 3 years I have not had it close when it was "latched". I can pull on the top of the door to "unlatch" the door.

Are There Things You'd Like Jayco to Change?

I would love Jayco to be more proactive about communicating model year changes and providing specifics to the selling dealers. I ordered a 2013 but got a 2014. I ordered Amaretto but it was discontinued. All these things were surprises. My salesman was very diligent about checking with the factory, but many times even he felt that Jayco couldn't get him an answer.

I would assume that factories would plan and ramp up well before the production actually starts, so why then the lack of communication to the folks on the ground?

Light switch for the bedroom. Climbing on the bed to reach the overhead light is a pain and the reading lights are not located so I can see inside the surround cabinets.

That's it. We really like this TT.
I am 5'3" and use a toothbrush to turn on the vent! Lol!
I think I would like to have better quality locks on the storage doors. I don't think they're going to last much longer. Other than that, I'm very happy with my Jayco!

I would like to see Jayco go back to the deeper shower pans.

There is water on the floor whenever the shower is used in my X23B.....

I would like to see color on the awnings again, the all white while cooler are a pain to keep clean. At least the color hides some of the dirt and stains.
