The warranty representative has agreed to pay for the labor (only) to install the JTís for a member of this Forum, that like mine does not have the brackets. My request for the same was refused. That creates a consistency issue and penalty for those of us who purchased early.
I don't know the circumstances behind who covered what, installs, but it is the nature of the beast on RV's for running changes throughout the year. More than likely the dealer is doing it for them as a goodwill gesture.
Other than giving a book value, you really wouldn't even need a model year, as they never really dictate what is in the unit.
New products become available, things change, engineers redesign, etc...
Doesn't always make a whole lot of sense, but it happens in this industry.
Running model changes are the norm here.....
