2019 Salem Cruise Lite 273QBXL

Received our brand new Salem Cruise Lite 273QBXL from Jeff Couch a few weeks back. We've only been able to use it one weekend very close to home and had a pretty successful trip.
Some things I've notice they've changed from the 2018 model(current 2018 owners may be able to confirm):
Electric fireplace
No power jacks
Fridge is a 12V (no option for propane) but works awesome! Don't have to worry about propane being on or open flame while towing.
Redesign of paint/color scheme - no more vinyl stickers except for on front cap
2 small side windows on either side of slide
Anyone think of anything else? It seems like this is the 1st year with some major changes....

Congrats!
Just to clarify, the fridge is probably a residential fridge and is NOT 12v, it's 110v AC. The trailer uses an inverter to invert the 12v battery power to 110v AC.

Nope... definitely a 12V fridge. It's called the Ever chill. Check it out:

It runs on 12V. Works awesome while off the grid. Not sure how long it would last but don't plan on doing any boondocking!
