My 2013 2306 has ducted furnace but not A/C. With such a small unit I wonder how much ducted A/C makes a diffrence. My non ducted A/C unit will run you out in 100 degree + temps in a minute. lol.

The LED light thing is a great up grade I spent some coin upgrading most of mine. But I still have not found a LED bulb that matches the color of the stock old school bulbs my LED's are a little harsh on the eyes.

I also wonder what bigger wheels will do for you other then add more weight? My 2306 is well under the load ratings listed on my 14 inch wheels and tires.

Wow, that new ducting sounds great. It's a free upgrade. Like it.

Thanks for all the feedback. We can't wait.

I believe the Murphy bed has some additional hardware and others moved to make it easier to put the bed back up. And I agree with Phil... The alum. Wheels really gives the unit a great look.
I don't believe ours came with LED lights on the auto awning unless I haven't found the switch....

There are vents above the bed, behind the curtain. So in the evening when the curtain is closed, you can really tell a difference as far as air flow.

There are also vents in the back near the bunk beds, which I know the kids appreciate. When they are hot, they can direct them right at the beds. Or turn them away if they get cold.


It takes a little bit of trial and error to get them temp set just right. The first night, we were FREEZING because we didn't know what we were doing. But we got it figured out after a couple of nights.

Wait... where did you see that privacy shades are now a standard??? We paid for the upgrade.

Our dealer said they just started shipping them with the LED awning lights as standard. The switch would be right there with the rest of them.

Our dealer told us it was standard.

But we definitely don't have LED lights on our awning.

Do you have a pic of the awning lights? I'd like to see it.

Looking here: Mini Lite Travel Trailer Features / Options by Forest River

I see that the night shades are part of Option "S". I would have to look at our paperwork to see what options we got, but I remember our dealer telling us it was listed on the options but that the 2014's all would come with it standard. Who knows, perhaps he was feeding me a line. But we have the upgraded wheels so I guess we went with that option.

Any idea how to get the TV sound piped through the rv speakers? I didn't see anything in the manual.
