2017 Thor Axis 24.1 Axxera Remote

We just purchased a 2017 Thor Axis 24.1, and I really need a remote for the front radio/etc.
1.Should it have come with one?
2.Has anyone discovered a Remote Control app that can be downloaded on an iPhone?
Thank you in advance.

Lisa,

Our 2016 Vegas 24.1 was suppose to have come with one, they tracked one down. I do not know about an app, but post it if you find it.

Enjoy your Axis!! Our big modification was to take out the couch and put in two big recliners.

We made the remote part of the contract. Haven't received it yet (as they "forgot" to order it which we found out after THOR called to check on us)

But, they assured us that it is now on order, as well as a missing window screen that we didn't catch in the PDI

Remote

We received the following response when contacting Thor about the remote for our 2017 Thor Vegas 24.1.

"As for the Axxera AV614 bh the manufacture does not send us the remote for this radio. This is because the remote interferes with some of the other electronics on the unit. So they do not even send us this with the radio.
Thank you,
Tim Rhoades"

I believe other folks contacted the radio manufacturer and they were sent the remote.

Mine came with the coach and it is never used.

Ours didn't come with one. Only thing we use the thing for is the re view cameras.

Hi Lisa ... our Axis did not come with the remote...I googled Axxera..found the contact information and called customer service. The lady told me that it should have the remote and she would be happy to send me one. Two days later it was in my mail box !!
Now...with that said...for something I thought I HAD TO HAVE !! It is not that neat. Yes, it works...but, since I do most of the radio adjusting, etc. from the shotgun seat it is not issue for me !

Oh...by the way....it does not interfere with anything in our RV !! Good grief !!

What is interesting about Thor's response is my radio was replaced 2 times under warranty. Both times the dealer replaced the radio remote with the new remote that was shipped, from Thor, with the new radio.

Just an observation on my part.

uh huh ! when we took delivery on our Axis ..
I asked if the radio came with a remote ... and the guy said if it isn't here with the rest of the remotes...it is not here

now back to my previous post about obtaining said remote !!

And....I know many forum members have replaced that Axxera...and if we were in a soundproof, quiet environment...perhaps I would be wanting something more sophisticated .... but, for what it is worth...it works just fine...performs all duties well.

We are fairly brand new owners (and proud) of a 2017 Axis 24.1, and if and when we ever get all the add-ons completed, we're hoping to take a 4-6 week trip to the Northwest -- soooo looking forward to it.

All that to say, we're curious about a radio replacement for the Axxera that we got. It does not have a GPS and it is not Sirius XM ready, both of which we'd like to have. What have other chosen as replacements, and are they happy with their choices!

Thanks,

Judy

As far as XM radio ( which is a must have on the road), we have hooked up an onyx XM receiver and connected it to the Axxera. WORKS GREAT! And now I can use it in the boat, office, or other car without another subscription!

A radio with a car based GPS system can get you in trouble with an RV. They do not allow you to configure the vehicle for height, weight, or LPG. Sirius portable radio works just fine connected into the Axxerra.

Doc,

Those recliners are awesome. Curious, Are you still able to place the table in front of them when the slide is out?

Thanks for response and comments. We've decided to stick with what we got...so I called Jensen/Axxera this morning regarding the missing remote and removal tools (which Camping World told us were not available) and they have already put them in the mail to us!!

Fabulous website! First lace I go for answers to my many many questions!!

Judy

Joyful,

Yes, the big two legged table can still be used. I purchased a third one of those flush floor holders and plan to mount it between the other two so I can use the smaller table over the center console area.

Regarding your sofa swap for recliners. We want to do this with our 2017 Axis 25.5. Where did you get your recliners? Did you do swap out yourself or have it done? If you did it yourself, was it a big or difficult job? And, if I may ask, what was ballpark cost of recliners and labor, if you had them installed? Thanks!

Crutchfield.com is a great resource. I have purchased from them many times and their support team will walk you thru what will fit your unit & needs. Just got home last week 20 states this summer & 9000 miles on our rig, No issues. Have Fun!
