They always add the wh tank as useable available water .

I don't understand what "code" was broken. I just looked up your campers floor plan. Same as mine, a Salem and it has 40 gal fresh and 66 gal grey capacity. Its a 2014, why didn't Forest River just change yours to this configuration. Its not like they didn't have the parts laying around.
Still think at the very least, you should have been told and givin a choice.

I'm guessing the old 32 gallon fresh water spec included the hot water tank, and I'm guessing the new fresh tank spec of 25 gallons includes the hot water tank.

As for their disclaimer saying they reserve the right to make changes whenever they want-just because they say it doesn't mean that can legally do it; just like kbosh and his tshirt. I'm tempted to start a lass action lawsuit or talk to a lawyer. I suppose going to forest river first would be the thing to do. Does anyone have contact info for forest river?

IMO, much ado about nothing. Get rid of the camper if it is causing so much heartburn.

I believe the ado is not so much as keep or sell, but more of changing a spec, that is still being advertised, and not informing the buyer. IMO, letting them find out after the sell and on their own sounds dishonest.

Hard to recall all the brochures, etc. Maybe next years brochures will be correct. Who knows?

That is good to know but I don't know why. If your freshwater tank is empty the water pump is not going to push that 5 gal out of the water heater

I guess you can drain it and catch it in a pan..
