thanks Rod, we were blessed to get these upgrades,
didn't want anyone thinking I was better since
we purchased the Forester.

Rod we used to live in Ft Myers, what is happening down
there these days??

I wasn't thinking that at all. Forgive me if I gave that impression. I was just pointing out a difference between the Forester and Sunseeker. Some viewers may not even know that the countertops changed for 2015.

I've only been a Ft. Myers area resident for a couple years, but am enjoying very much. No snow to shovel and I no longer have to winterize the RV.

Glad to hear you liked the upgrades.

Just so everyone is aware, there is no conspiracy, we are not trying to cut money out once you order a unit. We make changes all the time that WE consider upgrades.

I had one recently. Customer got all those upgrades you got, BUT we switched from a Magnadyne radio to a Jensen radio. This upgraded the NAV and added the Sirius tuner and antenna as a standard item on the Jensen. Unfortunately (and we never thought about it), the new radios don't have Weather Band. With all the smart phones and XM weather channels, we don't know of anyone that uses the weather band. However we had one customer feel like we lied to them.

So again, glad you liked the changes. We really do have the best of intentions when making them.

Just FYI--the weather band on the Magnadyne is mostly useless. Since the antenna is the fender mount, it doesn't pick up much of anything on weather. Have my own portable weather radio or like you said, use phone.

I just ordered a 2501 with a July 14 delivery. Will it have a Jensen or Magnadyne radio? I am interested in installing the Sirius XM, the Jensen would do the trick.

It will be the Jensen. The Sirius tuner and antenna will already be installed.

I was just about to publish the attached to our dealers. (Rough draft only)

Yes, we use gravity fill only. Seems to work for those with a hose and for those without a hose.
