2017 models longer?

I noticed the 2017 XLR 380amp is listed at 44 foot long. Is this a typo or has it been lengthened?

I was shopping XLRs hard earlier this year. So I looked at specs a lot. It was mentioned that XLR was changing their specs to reflect real world measurements. Pin weights with generators, LP tanks, etc.. Maybe they're doing the same with lengths.

I wish everyone would be more truthful.

Our '13 380 Amp is 44 ..... I call it 45 foot cause it's a monster and who cares about a few inches.

I should go measure ours...who would have thought the length listed by the factory is not correct? I could understand a few inches based on the type of pin box...but not several feet.
