It did porpoise very bad which is why I switched the shocks to koni's. After the upgrade it rides excellent

It does, but only because they used an off-the-shelf car stereo. And it might be a useful feature if not for the fact that we've only got that one screen. So our "superior" radio stays on the cameras 100% of the time and we may as well not have a radio at all.

It is frustrating, though, that it's 2020 and there are luxury vehicles that don't come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. (Yes, both. I am looking at you, BMW.)

Not our experience at all. With our Newmar Girard Electric window awnings we have had them out in 40+ mph winds, they did not move at all and no whistling if those hold down straps like our Cornerstone had. They are entirely different from the Girard Novas on the rooftop. They are very robust and a much better awning than the manual ones. Plus, we often would not deploy the manual ones, especially on short stays because it required digging out the road and deploying each one separately then reversing the procedure on leaving being very careful to TRY to prevent the strap loop from disappearing inside the housing. Nope, give me the electric ones every time. All JMHO

I agree. The window awnings on the my last 2 Newmars were great. Strong winds never bothered them. Its definitely nice to hit a button and watch the awnings come down. Then the flip side is i guess with the manual shades I get some exercise and its one less electronic item to malfunction.

The moral of the story is to be happy with what I have and not what I could have had..But the electric awnings sure are nice!

I was checking my 21 coming home very carefully and mine rode fine. I would not have hesitated to change to Koni's as they have worked so well on the other coaches. My 21 may loosen up and if that happens the shocks will be changed.

At least my 2020 is in color and I still have the ICC light control on the steering wheel.
I am shocked over both of those changes from the 20. I went through every setting yesterday on everything. If I want an easy to read color screen, I am going to have to borrow the crayons from the kids next door. I still cannot understand black and white and no cell phone car play functions.

Chuck, can you still select pages, from the side console, to display in the center of the digital dash? Gps and camera system I believe are the two additional pages.

Yes, that is still there on the 21's.

Yes I have those selection for the GPS. That and the camera are the only thing that remain in color. The XM radio does have a 2 inch color logo.
