Interesting Jaws, do you also have a power awning?

Nice, I got the manual awning so ill have to live with the orange light. Or put a 12 volt access close to one of the awning arms.

Ordered my Flagstaff 8528ckws in Jan. for a May 1st pickup. It was put on line in mid April and is a 2014. Dealer told me to order a 2013 early for late pickup and would automatically get a 2014 for 2013 price in case there was a price increase. Good dealer.
Haven't had much time with it yet, but did notice led lights on awning. I was told at factory that this is standard now on the Dometic power awning. It still has the outside flood and yellow porch lights. You can light this thing up at night like a Christmas tree.They also cleaned up the control panel so it contains all of the rocker switches. No more switches mounted next to it as if it was an afterthought. Every light inside and out is an led, think some interior lights on 2013 were not.
However, they still have the same poor oem tires with no optional replacement available. The LPG tanks are still poorly mounted and hard to work with. The center roof vent in the FW needs a ladder to use and a power vent is not offered as an option.
I'm sure I might find other lesser items as time goes on.
In short, some things improved, others ignored. Baby steps!

Thanks for the answers! LED lighting is a nice improvement, esp the awning lights...tired of chasing burnt bulbs on my 2010 Mini Lite.
