Shouldn't post the Thor diagrams as it says copyright Thor right at the bottom right. In addition, as we all know, each coach is different and thus the diagram may not apply to everyone's coach.

good maybe now they get back to me and my warranty cases get handled in a speedy fashion..

also the title says the year / model are you saying that if every 2018 A.C.E 30.3 comes with its own diagram based on the VIN ?

Not each one, but the drawing does have a version on it and they do ask for your VIN before they send it to you.

Ok I am still missing your point.. it says THOR A.C.E 30.3 in the subject and again on the THOR diagram. so again you are saying that you think that THOR actually compares VIN so they give you a diagram based on the VIN and not just ask for the VIN so they can verify that you actually have a THOR ?

Yes I think they have different sets of drawings based on VIN--I don't think they are unique to each VIN. It is more likely they are unique to runs of coaches (e.g. build a couple of dozen, make a change, build another dozen, etc.).

The drawings I have for my coach have a "revision" box at the bottom right (since ours is a 2014--a very early Axis--they are only at revision B).

Personally I think differently ( I don't believe that every dozen RVs they say " Hey Joey, grab me the plans for Rev 1 and lets build some that way ) but would it make you feel any better if I take the post down since this seems to cause you ethical & emotional distress ? It was meant to help people and maybe give them an idea of what they are dealing with BEFORE they call THOR for support.

LOL! Not causing me ethical nor emotional distress was just pointing out that it is Thor's copyright information and they really didn't give you permission to post it. If you want to leave it up its your choice..won't give me any heartbreak.

People have posted these diagrams on here before and I'm not the only one who has, trying to politely, remind people that these are Thor's IP and they didn't necessarily give permission to post them. In addition: Thor has been quite generous at handing these out to the owners who ask--wouldn't want to get on their bad side and have them stop handing them out because they started seeing them posted.

They make revisions on the fly. Some of those revisions require them to change the drawing. So in reality there are different drawings for different groups of VINs within a specific model and year.

So my 2018 was built with Rev3 plans from the year 2016 ? And there (might) are 2017 out there with Rev4 plans?

That would be too hard making wiring harness for each different coach I think they have a standard harness

Sure they do, but that doesn't mean its always hooked up the same. I think you guys are missing my point: It isn't about design, its about quality.

I believe they make up wire harnesses on a loom, so most everything will be the same between coaches, it's a time saver and it's cheaper in the long run

I have a 2016 Hurricane with the identical floor plan except for the front TV location. I also have the wiring diagrams for my coach. They are similar but there is enough difference to cause a problem if you were chasing a wiring fault. All Aces, Hurricane and Windsports come down the same production line in Plant 750. The rate is 8 to 10 per day. It is definitely worth the trip to tour the plants. Plant 650, 750 and 850 are all with in 30 miles of Elkhart.

Exactly: Sure all the harnesses are (more or less) exactly the same but there is no guarantee that they are connected up properly...quality (or lack thereof).
