Is it common for Jayco to make unannounced subtle changes?

That second shower pic is one I got off the web, I forgot to take bathroom pics, but that's the shower we got. I'm not sure about the sink drain. I do know we have the handle type bathroom faucets, not the round knob type shown in the shower pic I previously posted.


This is the toilet/sink area of the 38fdds. Can't see the drain in this pic.

I imagine it's not at all uncommon for changes to be made. We ordered our Eagle in December for an April delivery after reaching a deal. A month later our salesman contacted me needing more money for changes Jayco would be making for units built after the New Year. Since we'd done the deal over the internet and phone, I was a tad suspicious. But when he gave me a list of the changes, I was all for it. Among them was a porcelain toilet and hard surface countertops. Well worth the few extra dollars.

Speaking of the '360 degree view', I was checking out the one for my model (38FDDS) on the Jayco website. It indeed shows the newer round shower in it as well as the print bedding. What's really strange is that it also shows the standard RV door rather than the patio slider. I actually may had gone for the regular door vs the slider, but they removed the option. The wife prefers the slider, so I may have lost that battle anyways.

They made a change on the 2016 Jay Feather 23RLSW. They are now installing in the bedroom a coax and 110 volt receptacle for a TV hook up. There will be a sticker on the side wall for the mounting plate location.


The coax & outlet are on the ceiling above the window. The change wasn't announced but we asked the factory rep at the Pomona show why the display units didn't have a bedroom hook up. He said the change will be made on all new units.


Who knows, by the time I pickup my rig in late Feb or early March other changes may have been made. Wireman

I could wish for this on our 23RLSW. DW and I both made note of the lack thereof during our initial sales tour of the TT. But since it has the couch, we just figured we'll do our TV watching in the living area. OTOH, maybe I'll get ambitious and add it myself. When you get yours, maybe you could post a photo of the location?

Hey, the Jayco website shows a TV mount in the bedroom - it's high up on the bathroom wall. I think I would have noticed if my unit has one, but at the same time it would not be terribly difficult to add the mount and wiring in that location. The snow mountains around our TT will make it all but impossible to look more closely for several weeks, most likely. Use this link, and then click on the 360 Virtual Tour. It's there, big as life!

FWIW, our 23RLSW came with a TV, plus an extra KeBloc mounting bracket; the mounting block to put on the wall would have to come from the manufacturer; I've requested pricing.

Regards

Roger

It seems this time of the year you start to see features that will be showing up in the next model year start to get incorporated in the current year since the mfg lines are about to get switched. It seems that April/May the 2017 will start to ship although the website isn't typically updated till Aug.

rkresge, That TV location is different from what the factory rep told me. He said it was above the window next to the bathroom wall. The outlets were suppose to be on the ceiling.


Looks like another change of a change. Wireman

I get that, but given the layout of the bedroom and the position of the sliding door to the bathroom, it looks like a very logical spot to put it.

The location shown on the virtual, at the foot of the bed is definitely a more logical place.


Would be nice to know the wall width to figure out what size TV to buy. rkresge, is this a new virtual tour on the website? I never looked at it before.


I'd post a photo of where the StarCraft 24RLS location is, which is the same location the rep told me, but I can't figure out how to do it. Wireman

You can probably figure out the TV size by looking at the options page for the TV in the bedroom.
