Safety issue Thor ACE

I have a 2016 Thor ACE 29.4 On a recent trip to Florida, we stopped for the night in Georgia. When I went to hook up my gas grill to the propane line I was shocked to see that it was hanging down about 4" from the ground. One of the hanger clamps had corroded and broken off. The gas line runs under the coach from the propane tank to just below the outside kitchen.
I used multiple zip ties to secure the gas line.
I wanted to pass this along and urge you to check your clamps for corrosion.

Good advice...it's good practice to go under the coach every six months or so with a handful of wire-ties and a cold beer or two. You're guaranteed to come out with both hands a bit lighter.

Yes, zip ties are a wonderful thing. I got a call from a lady at Thor today regarding my post on the gas line. She asked for a little more information. I was happy to see that Thor was interested in the issue. Who knows, maybe they will figure out a better way of securing the gas line.
