23J Arrived on Friday

After long day to pickup, do PDI, drive home, etc. It's now in the driveway. Spent last night with the wife and kids, good times! One minor battery issue (dealer switched terminal wires, doh!) - got some help over on RV.net.

Now to continue to read forums, figure out what we need/don't need and get some graphic ideas! Oh yea, find time to go camping!

That`s one nice hybrid! Was it cheaper without the decals or did they charge you for the deletion as with some other things?

Looks like they made some nice changes for 2012. They moved up the drawers that are to the left of the sink and deleted the tiny usless cabinet door that was just above.
They added a window above the sink, nice!
They changed the large cabinet beneath the oven to a small drawer, nice as you had to get down on your knees to access the contents of that cabinet. I did a simmilar mod by installing a big deep drawer for pots and pans inside that cabinet.
More pic's please!

With your slide in look between the slide and the bathroom wall and examine all the plumbing, I had a cracked fitting where the kitchen sink drain hose connected to the rest of the drain system. Could you take a picture of that plumbing, maybe they improved it for 2012, be nice to see what they did.

The deletion of graphics from Jayco was no charge, but the addition of graphics on my end will not be free

I would love to share stories, this is ALL new to me! But thanks to forums like these I've learned a ton. Even more than the dealer knew, they do not know the difference between a positive and negative battery terminal :hihi:

Thanks Noel trainer for posting these pictures. Since our 23j is about an hours drive away and we won't be able to see it till April, we can quench our thirst by looking over your pictures till then

Well we ordered our wo even seeing it live! We saw a couple of Roos, a Jayco 23F, etc. But my wife and I knew the extra counter space and a few other thinks made the 23J perfect for us. We thought the chocolate color was too dark (being in FL). So everthing is just perfect. Although my wife does not remember the Roo that we look at (same floorplan) was THIS big. It was almost identical is size, it's just been since Thanksgiving! Hope to get out next weekend and practice backing-up, then maybe the following week go out to a State Park for the weekend!
