New 2014 X23B.....

Hey gang, here is a you-tube video that was posted a day ago of the new 2014 Jayco X23B. Can't tell anything different from the 2013's??

I see a few things that are different than my 2012.

On the refrigerator wall there are two black boxes, I would assume one is the thermostat, but what is the other item?

On the tongue the propane tanks are where my battery is located. I wonder if it will hold two batteries behind the tanks?

Where does the battery go?? A low shower instead of the tub, although that might be the same for 2013. The 2 black boxes, one is the thermostat, one looks like the hot water gas and electric switch and the light switch.

Ours is a 2012 and I sure wish it'd come with dual propane tanks. Thought about upgrading but since we're planning on replacing it next spring-ish probably won't. I seem to recall that 2013 was the first year of the short shower pan. Like our deeper one better. Also see an electric tongue jack, standard now? I added one and would never be without.

I thought about getting the electric jack but I count the manual cranking process as part of my total exercise program.

Yeah, I can see the benefit but I tell myself that climbing the step into the TT and digging in the fridge for the next "refreshment" is enough for me.

The only thing that looks different from my 2013 is the black box next to the thermostat. The tongue looks different but maybe that's because there isn't a battery on it? Actually, the couch cushions look different. The cushions on the back of our couch are just straight - these have a button in the middle.

We are waiting on our 2014 now. Our dealer had a new 2013 on another lot but made us a better deal on the 2014, so we decided to wait.

Yes, on my 2013 the thermostat is on the side of the fridge and I'm assuming the other black box is the monitor for the battery and water tanks?

Yes I noticed a new interior color. And they discontinued the amaretto pattern, which is what we have.

And I wish Jayco had left the deep shower pan in the 2013 like they had in the 2012 models!!
