Shower rod 2016 AXIS 24.1

I found THE ARC...shower rod...produced by Focus Hospitality Products. They do not sell to the public, nor does WebRestaurant (which requires a purchase of a dozen of them) ... this leads to my continued search ... I emailed WebRestaurant to inquire about mfg. of product...was advised it is a Focus product.

Amazon has, what appears to be the ARC Brushed Stainless Steel.

What the heck, we are not trying to build a proton accelerator with black market parts...just trying to duplicate a shower rod that is available in some newer Axis/Vegas units.

I will try to contact Thor again tomorrow. If anyone has a contact please post it or send them the link to this effort to find out a part number for a simple shower curtain rod.

Doc...take a look at The Arc I posted in my previous feed. I do believe this is the correct item. I did alot of research on it, as I know what the item looks like...we have it in our new Axis. If we had a use for a dozen of them, WebRestaurant has them for $26 each !! K

VKB, Thanks and it sure looks like it...too bad I don't own a fleet of Vegas RUV's. As an option I will forward that info to the parts clerk at CW in Statesville and see if they can get some.


CW of Statesville told me that with the VIN number they could search the build for that unit and see what part number was used. It is a bit to ask, but if you have some dead time could you contact a Camping World in your area and see if they can come up with a part number?

[QUOTE=DocMike;28584]VKB,

DOC/MIKE...I spoke with Joann at CWorld today...she checked her email from Thor and found the part # !

For the shower rod in the 2016 Axis 24.1, the part #0340281
I reconfirmed all information with her.

Good Luck !

Kay

Will that part number work with my dealer's part department as well. So the dealer will just order the part from Thor and voilà -- we'll all be in business?

Ed, I would think so. My CWorld rep received an email from Thor with the part number ... and she did not indicate that it was a Camping World specific part.

If it can be ordered, .. sure beats buyin a dozen of them !!

All,

Just got word from CW of Statesville: the curtain rod is on order and it runs $70ish plus shipping and handling.

Thanks for all who assisted. Will post pictures as the "upgrade" progresses.

All,


Just learned a new lesson when dealing with ordering parts; "Parts is Parts". When one orders "shower curtain rod" one gets "shower curtain rod"...one does not get bracket that holds "shower curtain rod" .


So, after picking up "shower curtain rod" and taking it to the RV and discovering no brackets for "shower curtain rod" I went back into the CW and placed my order. Having learned my lesson we placed the order for "brackets (2) for 'shower curtain rod' plus "screws for attaching brackets to walls to hold 'shower curtain rod'".


Who would have ever guessed it would be this difficult just to replace a "shower curtain rod"? I hate to ponder the permutations and combinations of what one has to be order for replacement of something really complex...like maybe "toilet paper roll holder"???


Eventually I will post pictures of this modification.


Doc
