I just bought a new Hurricane 29m , the light switches are pads, one located in bathroom other in master bedroom. Does anyone know if they have back lights so you can see what you want to turn on and off.i keep using a flash light

Not sure what you means by pads. Havent seen any with back lights either. I have switches all over the mh. By the front door, above thr dining room table and sofa, hallway, kitchen, bath, and bedroom

Post some pics of your pads. They might be something new

We have same issue. The pads need to be lit up from the backside so you can see what button you need to push. Oh well the phone light works but a pain....

My Thor Hurricane is a 2019, all the switches are touch screens. But they do not have back lights on he only pictures, so you have to hit the correct picture to turn on/off lights,fans, water pump. I do have main panel that is lite, it that’s not in bath or bedroom. Very poor design.

I think he is referring to the multiplexing touch pads!

Upgrades are available from: <http://www.fireflyintegrations.com/firefly-system.html>. Most people simply add touch dots to the screen or add a small LED light to the bottom of the panels

here's how I finally over came the same problem I also have the 2019 29m...under vanity, kitchen cabinet , and over sofa and dinette , there's led's that you push the center to turn on the light...but if you go to the main touch screen you can turn on lights any where in the coach... so I turn on the bath light there before going in to the bath, and same with bedroom lights...when I enter the coach with all the lights off in the coach, I just reach up and turn on the push led light right above the step well and it lights up the coach enough to see the main pad, or the liv. rm light pad at the door..I cussed the set up many times as rubbing around the wall in the bath try'n to get lights on tried my patience ,,,, then my wife says... way don't you just turn the light on right here before you go in there and get mad???

Chf 1/2 done

The rain has slowed so I was able to get under the coach to move the bolts on the rear sway bar. Got that done and tied up some more loose wires.
Here's a picture, I'll post another time to show the rear trac Bar we installed a couple months ago.
For some reason it won't let me post two pictures at once

it's the Road Master version, if you need the model let me know and I'll look it up. I think there is only one for the F53 chassis but I've been wrong before.
Made a huge difference going around corners and the Semis coming past at 100 mph.
I had it installed because my 400lbs impact wouldn't budge the huge bolts in the rear end and I couldn't get a long enough breaker bar to get them. The truck shop charged $90.00. it looks like a 30 minute job, I don't know their hourly rate. The alignment they did at the same time was about $170 or so I don't remember

Looks good Grady
Surprised your impact couldnt do it. My cheap harbor freight worked. The track bar for the 18k chassis is different than yours. It attaches to the sway bar bracket not the differention

MTHook,
Great photo too. I would like to know the part number. I couldn’t find it on the Roadmaster site. It looks similar to an ultra Trac model.
