Subtle changes in new models

Several members, particularly those in attendance at Osoyoos this year have indicated that Escape has made several subtle changes to their models. We all know about the recessed stove replacement but now I have heard mention of the new heater exterior vent cover to allow access to the furnace from outside. Someone else mentioned a new refrigerator exterior cover. I notice the solar is now 170 watts vs the 160 older model. I'm trying to keep current on these changes and would appreciate any input members may have on the new 2018 model changes. Thank you.....

Thinking about trading again Jim?
Don’t want to get too far behind the curve. Garlic is looking super. Peppers too.

Thinking about it, hate to pass up a sale this month while dog sitting the entire summer. Franklin will not leave my side, so I guess he is afraid, he turned 14 last month. Plus my propane is getting low in my one tank.....

Is that fiberglass cloth mat I see around the wheel well when I magnify?

With the low resolution of that image, I think you're just seeing image artifacts.

Would that be where the cable connection would be?
