THOR #12329
Thor 29m solar and BB-Q WOES!!!!!!!!

Here we go, and if you know all the answers.. share...when I bought my coach, it is said... complete Solar system, everything hooked up, just add the panels....kinda easy if you know every thing about soar... but for the rest of us...what panel and where do you buy it...I know you can't just add any panel (S) you want... they have to be matched to the controller...the controller is 10 amp, and sure, or I think, the wire size is matched to that system...does Thor have the panel???? nothing like walking into a RV repair place and say'n… I don't know anything about what I want... just know I want the rest of the solar system that thor installed... here's my bank statement and the title to my coach... can you help me???

Next... the BB-Q... thor put a camp side propane hook up,.. it is said..all you have to do is plug in your bb-q, open a beer, and enjoy a camp cooked burger...



Good luck with that.... hope you don't bb-q your coach..or gas your Wife and kids...

when I watched the videos on line... they showed that they come with a BB-q... that plugs in...pretty cool and easy...…. wrong!!!

thor doesn't give you the correct BB-Q any more... and no your BB-q won't hook up to it...


no one says a word... they send you off the lot thinking you have all this modern cool stuff... only to find you need to be a plumber and propane expert to cook a hot dog...oh, and don't leave home with out the charcoal's

if I hear what you are 'saying'.... no, many manufacturers give you 'pre-wiring', for Solar and Satellite tv, etc., SiriusXM 'ready' radios, and other 'pre-installed' connections to help get you 'started', but it's up to the owner as to whether they follow thru on these items... as some may, or may not, care about having them.

It keeps the overall price down for every unit, but gives new owners the options to continue these build-outs, if they wish.

I have some Solar, and it was ALL installed by myself, no use of any 'pre-wiring'... as where and how I installed mine was custom, for my own needs and desires and usage. You can buy solar panels at thousands of physical and online places - take your pic. The factory does not decide 'what' solar panels you must use.

I have Satellite TV, but installed it ALL myself, as the 'pre-wire' from the factory was not where and how I wanted to use it. There are several satellite tv and antenna providers... it's up to you as to which you use.

I have a Satellite RADIO, but it is a mobile/portable unit, and doesn't need to use any 'pre-wire' into the factory radio, but simply plugs into the input jack. I like it and can use it in any other vehicle I wish.

But, some other owners want to just 'plug-n-play' with these optional services... it doesn't always come out that easy, though, as in any of these options, there can be differing ways of installing it to the owner's desire.

You need to remove the regulator from your BBQ grill. The propane hookup on your coach is already set up for low pressure.

About the Grille...
You need a low-pressure BBQ Grille (one without a pressure regulator...)
Once you have (or convert) one: just get a quick disconnect propane hose, hook up your grille; and you'll be enjoying a hot-cooked meal in no time!

You lowered your bed 8", relocated your tv, done tons of mods. Im sure you can figure out how to remove the regulator or can find a bbq where the reg can be removed

What coleman bbq do you have??????

Not every skill-set can be applied to every situation...
We learn by asking questions about the things that we don't know... and then putting the answers into practical usage.

here's my deal... try'n to put my set up on a diet,... I have a bb-q in my trailer... and one in the rv... the one in the rv, coleman runs off little bottles..

when were at the dunes, and mountains in the winter be grill in the enclosed trailer.. what I was try'n to do was just have one grill... the trailer grill won't work in the motor home as it too big,.. so we have the coleman for when we don't take the trailer...if I make the coleman fit to the coach tank... can't use it in the trailer...so still have to have 2...the only way for us is to just have two,.. so gonna leave the colman as is and still be able to use it else where... like if we wanna take it down to the beach or something else...

as far as the factory part installed solar trickle charger, pretty much worthless to every body... doesn't do anything now... and doesn't do much when you add the 100 watt panel... it's a 10 amp system, with a 10 amp controller...
