THOR #4579
Slide out issue

Today I had a collision with my awning (going to cost alot) into a building, After the collision none of the slides would work. Power was at the control module, yada,yada,
Did all of the standard checks
things to learn ( other than the obvious)(don't hit shit)
1: THOR has crap support.
2: When you are done with idiots, do it yourself.
3. After many hours of trouble shooting, a multi meter will tell you that The FUSE LABLED ENTERTAINMENT is the slide and drop down and the awning!
Seriously Thor, how could label the slide as entertainment?

It sounds like finding the correct fuse provided you with many hours of entertainment.

Sorry to hear that. What a pain. I noticed every breaker and fuse in mine was labeled wrong when I was installing an inverter.

I don't know why you are ranting about Thor because you collided with something....

Wow Bob! Even if he hadn't run into something Thor should offer support to help with their shoddy job labels fuses and breakers. What if someone ran into you? Then it's not your fault but you still need support and parts to fix it.

Sorry for your problem. What coach do you have and what fuse is labeled entertainment? Maybe you can save some of us similar headaches.

The takeaway for me is:
You can't rely on the labeling.

The question is:
Is it worth verifying all the labels now, or should I wait until I have a need and check it then?

My instincts tell me to wait until I need to know. However my curiosity will probably force me to check.

Dwood,

Sorry for your misfortune. Unfortunately for me, It sounds like something I could do. Maybe reading your post might give me something to think about in the future and I won't do the same.

Good luck and if you need any help, I think we live close to each other. We are in Manchester.

Ken

The person that labeled my breaker/fuse panel was from another country cause it sure as hell isn't written in any language I'm able to read.
