Our 2012 came with dual tanks.

Yeah, that thing next to the T-stat is the fresh-gray-black tank monitor and the pump-LP water heater-electric water heater switch assembly. Mine is white and located just inside the entry door. I like the countertop that extends to the left of the stove over that base cabinet. My 2006 has a shorter base cabinet and no countertop.

I'm seriously thinking about making a new countertop that goes all the way to the door over that short base cabinet. Good winter project.

We have the extended counter top in our 2013.

We had actually decided on the shorter X20E, but don't you know the DW just had to have the extra counter space, so there ya go!!

I just pulled the trigger on a fresh 2014 today. I had been looking at a 2013 and was set to walk in and file the paperwork, but he happened to mention the 2014 as we were measuring the slide out for an awning and we were trying to figure out how to get my torklift 6V battery box on the front of the frame. On the 2013, the propane tanks are bolted behind a single battery angle iron. However, on the 2014, the tanks are forward and there's room for dual batteries behind the LP tanks. Between that being a lot easier and the 2014 already had a powered jack we just swapped the paperwork over.

Well she's home! Getting her outfitted in the driveway in prep for taking her out tomorrow. I posted pics of the inside/outside in my flickr gallery here.

I had them tweak things before I took ownership so the battery box and batteries I picked up. I had the fantastic fan, cover, and slideout awning put in as well.

So far, the only problem is that the batteries aren't hooked up I've got 12.9V across them in the box but when I unplug from shore power nadda. I'll be going battery disconnect hunting in the morning I guess.

Really nice! Did you add the awning lights, or did it come with them?

What are you using for a battery box?
