Need Help

I have been going over my new Challenger 37KT with a fine-tooth comb. So far I have only found two potential problems, one I fixed. It was one of the four bolts securing the 40" front TV. The top right one was loose and had almost fallen out. I could barely get my fingers on it and finally with a pair of needle nose pliers managed to get it back in the hole and could turn it about 1/8th of a turn at a time. Took a while but finally got it tightened.

I was looking for the serial numbers for the DVD player and the HDMI splitter but there wasn't enough slack in the cable to remove them from the cabinet or turn them around so I could see the back. I did not want to disconnect all of the cables so I gave up on it. But not before I found an unconnected HDMI cable in the handful coming out of the wall. The problem is, it isn't long enough to reach either component so it couldn't have been plugged in to either. I have no idea what it may go to.

One of the kitchen drawers had a lot of odds and ends that had been dumped in it. Most were recognizable except for two items (photos included). One is a USB charger. Perhaps it is simply a gift. I don't know if it is specific for any piece of equipment or not. Another item in the drawer appears to be an AM antenna wire. Not sure.

Outside in the plumbing bay I was checking out the water filter, shower hose, etc. and found a "plug" (photo included) laying in the bottom of the bay. I couldn't see anyplace that it may have come from. Any ideas? Thanks.

Plug looks like a water heater plug. Or the antifreeze "injection" point plug.

The extra HDMI cable may be just for your use. Many campers come with a compartment or shelf for a video game, DVD player, or computer and provide an HDMI cable to plug into. On the Axis/Vegas units there is a shelf above the kitchen with an HDMI cable that runs to HDMI input 1 on the TV.

Keys look just like the keys for the locks on the front end cover and grill over the engine on my Vegas.

The white plastic plug looks like it is for the anti-freeze fill. Check and see if there is a tube coming off the tank side of the water pump. The metal key is for the front hood lock. The black adaptor/charger looks like it may be for charging the remote on the rapid camp system. Can't see enough of the pink colored cord to tell what it might be. Usually, there are extra cords for AV hookups.

The Charging plug is for your Rapid Camp remote.

The Key is for your Grill so you can access the Front of your RV.

I had a complete list of serial and model numbers for all the accessories. It is adhesive and stuck to the wall of the wardrobe in ours. I would expect you have a similar list somewhere. My list did include the dash radio.

I put the key there just for size reference. Sorry, should have mentioned that. Thanks.

Great! I'll look there and see. Someone mentioned something like a "build out list" which I assume is a list of most everything used in building the RV. I would like to know about that. Also where to get plumbing and wiring schematics. I'm an information collector. I may never need it but if I do I want to have it. Thanks.

To get schematics go to the Thor customer service web page - tell them what you would like & give them your vin #.

My build list was in the Thor bag with all the appliance manuals & the Thor manual. It was inside the cover on the thor manual.
