2015 voltage changes

Hello Everyone,

I just ordered a 2015 3895. I have a list of the changes incase anybody was interested in what will be different.

1. No safe under the bed
2. No Wifi Ranger
3. Getting rid of the large window on entry door. (smaller one)
4. Sony TV in main living area is different brand. (not sure what yet)
5. Blue Ray player being replaced with standard DVD player
6. Sony sound bar will be a different brand (not sure what yet)
7. Kenwood player in back will now be Sony with Sony speakers.
8. LED strip is not multi colored. Just white lights

Two major changes on the 3895 that are important to me are:

1. They lowered the TV in the living room. I really don't like how high the TV is in the 2014.
2. The bedroom now has a pocket door. The 2014 door opened outward as did the bathroom door. That makes it difficult to navigate around.

I hope this helps anyone out there trying to decide on a 14 vs a 15.

Jason

I do have the pocket door on the 14. Like, although the snap does not hold well to keep it open during travel.

Some of the later built 2014s have pocket door. Guess it's the transition stage to the 15s? Thanks for the heads up about the snap!

My '14 3895 has the bedroom door that swings out, and yes navigating the hallway between the bedroom and bath is awkward.

A pocket door would be great, but a retro fit would be impractical if not impossible.

What I have considered is reversing the bedroom door to swing in, which would involve reversing the frame, resetting the hinges and perhaps trimming the bottom of the door to clear the sidekick.

As far as any of the other changes listed... I prefer my 2014.


You'll like the pocket door & TV arrangement on your 2015... Enjoy!!!

My 2014 3895 also has the pocket slider. We took delivery the beginning of April. Much better than trying to navigate 2 doors opening into each other.

Do you guys and gals like the tv up high? Oh would you prefer it lower? I've seen them lower in other models. Seems more practical. Especially if you sit in the two chairs by the fridge.

High or Low is not going to change the 45 degree viewing angle in the 3895 layout. A swivel mount may help, but only for one side at a time. What helps even more is the 50 inch screen.

I took the TV angle into consideration, but having the extra seating with the two couches is why I chose a 3895.
