It's possible that they did that with the routine changes that they make. I'd call JAYCO to see if that happened. In 2015 they added a window to the FLSA shortly after production started and then about 1/2 way throught the production year went to side swing basement doors in stead of up-swing. So you never know what might have changed.

It's not only the $42 of the higher power but the larger cable you need to run back to the batteries. That's why I hate having the charger in the breaker panel. Much better to have it near the batteries.

Agreed. I am looking into replacing w a Go Power or Magum inverter / charger by the batteries.

The inverter is located in the front basement right by the batteries, there is only about a 2-3 ft run from the batteries. There is no reason for it to be close to the converter/breaker panel combo. All it needs is a 8 or 10 gauge wire to supply the 12 volt side and for recharging, doesn't need battery cable for that side.
