Four Winds 24F - 2017 models

I have a 2017 FW 24F and I believe this was the first year for this coach. Does anyone else’s have one? I would like to compare notes.

I have the drawings and over the past 18 months have crawled everywhere in and outside the coach. Given that, I think I am missing a few standard features and have a “assembly issue”. First, there is only one set of lights over the dinette under the storage cabinets. The second set on the slide ceiling are missing so we eat in the dark. Second, one of the bedroom lights is installed outside the bedroom and in the main area - when we have the curtain pulled and turn the bedroom lights on it lights up the whole place. Third, right side cargo bays are missing lights. Fourth, the sewer termination is two separate valves instead of a standard 1.5x3. I have to reach under the coach about a foot and forward a foot to open the grey water valve. Not fun in the rain.

Before I contact Thor I’d like to know if other owners are missing these items. BTW we went to LazyDays RV in Tampa yesterday and looked at a 2019 24F and everything above was there.

Thanks, Jim

We have a 2018 24F, and for what it is worth we have plenty of lighting every where we need it......sometimes I think too much lighting....under the dinette cabinets....on the ceiling over the dinette......then there is all of the kitchen and cabin lighting........plus the step lighting .....the bedroom lighting is confined to the bedroom.....on the up side there are plenty of switches to control the lighting......btw we have LED lighting in all of the outside storage areas....and then as far as the double valving on the black water tank, I was told that it was to prevent the pipe between the two valves, that runs the width of the unit, from carrying the weight of black water as you go down the road, meaning that when you are finished draining the black tank, shut off the valve closest to the tank first and then the other.

We have the 2017 Chateau 24F. No lights in the right side storage cabs. Our dinette has cabinets in the slide and lights with a switch below them. Main coach is filled with lights and bedroom curtain contains all the bedroom lights. We have a standard 1.5x3 gray & black waste connection that is very low, much to my dismay. Your pic is difficult to see where your gray water dumps. Yes the dual black water valves keep the solids from dropping down into the drain line and causing a blockage.

Valves at a different angle. One at the rear is black, one in the foreground is gray.
