ok, so here goes...when we first picked the 27b over the 29m, I like the coach was shorter..and placement of the tv, on that coach I had to take the sofa table out and re do the outside tv box because the tv box pushed the sofa too far out into the walkwaay when the slide was in...

so when we decided to get the 29m, we hated the TV location...so I moved it to the window wall..
it was mounted to the bath wall... I had to remove the bottom of the cabinet to pull the wires back through,.. so now I have a powered by inverter plug on the wall..

first I fabbed up a bracket out of aluminum..

the design of the bracket is to attach to the wall and the cabinet bottom...I had to take all the window coverings down and re do the window box

here's what's under the cabinet bottom... wires wires and more wires..there a little wall screwed into the cabinet that I moved way back to pick up the extra storage,.. if I could get a cabinet door from Thor I could make the area more accessible

not at all cause I can just pull the shade down, with it down to the bottom of the tv I can see the camp side well... not much difference than when the tv wasn't there..

Thats sweet.

I like being able to see out of the window under the TV. I have seen some setups where the TV is in the way and I dont think I would like that.

pulled off all the stickers before they have a chance to ghost the gel coat...I was wondering how much they heat the coach up in the summer time...the dark color ones sure were hot to the touch, and it was only 60's out

removed the fridge in the outdoor kitchen deleo,, got no use for that at all, and it takes up all the counter space/..found this out also... everytime you use the inverter... fridge comes on.... guess you could just unplug it till you need it

for me I would rather there was nothing in there,, lots of good storage,,and lots of weight added with the cabinets

OK folks.... now I'm mad,.. for me MAD!!! is way past angered or upset, and to tell the truth, for me it's like a car with the radiator boiling over, you just have to pull over to the side and cool off...as of right now.... I'm at a lost for words... knowing what I just paid for this coach...and the poorest quality install.... not acceptable.....

I'm gonna try to call thor,.. and hope full to get to at least talk to someone....

Each Thor Inc factory is managed as a separate unit. What happens at Airstream or Jayco has no bearing on Thor Motorcoach, Thor Motorcoach consist of at least 4 factory and each is its own entity. Thor motor coach usually includes a PDI checklist for each coach and provides a dealer, salesman trainer so that your dealer and his PDI tech is knowledgeable on the Thor products they sell. I have toured four of the Thor Inc factory's and also seen the plant 750 QC section in operation. Four different guys and girls checking off items on their list after the coach gets out of the water spray booth.
