THOR #1469
Upside Down Flag installed by Thor

Took delivery of my Challenger 37ND and found a surprise. The manufactures label on the front sunscreen/shade includes an upside down flag when the shade is in the partially down (driving) position. This is visible to everyone walking in front of the coach and at a distance of 25 feet.

I realize Thor buys these shades from a vendor, however, Thor is the installer, quality control, and more importantly, the Thor logo is on display with a factory installed upside down flag on the front of the coach. I have not looked at the other shades in the coach to see if they have the same problem.

Question to all you Thor owners with the power shades in the front, have you looked at yours from the outside when it is in the driving position?

I have attached a picture.

I have a curtain but this goes to show they slap these things together! Funny though - thanks for sharing!

Its the same way on our Axis. Its not upside-down if you stand in the coach and bend over the shade to look at it when the shade is down! Looked perfectly normal to me

Update

The solution, as presented by Irvine Shade and Door, replace the stickers.

Irvine Shade set me a strip of stickers to replace the upside down ones they installed on the shades.

According to them the stickers are correctly visible when the shades are installed in a certain manner. Think about that for a moment. Using their logic the shade would have to be installed so that it was closed by drawing the shade up rather than down. Has anyone seen a coach where the shades are closed by an upward draw?

Yup!!! It is upside down. Ours has been noticed by others walking by, but we just explain that is another one of Thors proof of poor quality control. It's nice of Irvine Shades to replace the stickers, but it never should have been accepted by Thor like that in the first place never the less installed. Sad, Sad, Sad.

I would cover it up if I couldn't get stickers. That is just wrong.

Yeah because we all know a flag upside down indicates a distress call so we wouldn't want people in the campground to get the wrong idea!

I believe that there is a conspiracy underfoot by Irvine Shade and Door to overthrow the U.S. Government!

The sign of their intent is the upside down flag placed on their products!

Only a true patriot, (or Marine, Eagle Scout, Elk, 5th grader), would notice the hidden sign! Good eye!!
