Axis 24.1 A/C condensate runoff from roof

We just did our shakedown trip in our Axis 24.1. One minor issue is the roof runoff goes where the lowest level sends it according to Thor support. they were very helpful on a couple of other minor issues. Since that was off the awning in our case wondering if anyone has figured out a way to run some type of drain line and route the condensate?

I'll be watching too. Good question. Jamie will probably find a way to get a drain installed.

LOL I haven't tackled that one (yet). In the few places we've had to run the A/C so far it ran off the awning right next to the door.

Same here, but a sudden flood from the awning was intercepted by my wife's head. Thus a higher priority.

THOR #1466
Just got our 2014 Vegas back from alignment shop. Front end was WAY out of alignment. Appears that Thor did not think it was necessary to adjust the front-end alignment after adding the coach body onto the chassis. Handles and drives MUCH better, now. The Ford dealer also said the driveline vibration was severe enough to cause tranny seal damage, and u-joint failure fairly quickly. This, after Mor/Ryde replaced one of the driveshafts already. The vibration was masked by the fact the front-end was so out of whack. Now I really feel it. Seems the replacement driveshaft is no good, or one of the other 2 shafts need attention.Thor instructed me to send the bill and they would review if they will re-imburse me for the aligment. They will do so for the new tire valve extenders I had installed to replace the defective factory units. Ford shop recommended a driveshaft shop to road test and repair the vibration. Now, I have to approach Thor again to cover this factory defect. My wife is so disgusted with the Vegas, now, she doesn't want to travel anywhere in it. Especially after she was trapped in the bathroom when the door latch broke.

I don't have a Vegas, but do have Thor Miramar, and my coach has a sticker on the drivers side wall, right next to the steering wheel, that states the coach will need an alignment. Haven't done it yet, but its on my list of things to do. Glad your alignment resolved your issue. Hope when I get mine done, it improves the ride a bit. Regards....

Our Axis ("sister" design to the Vegas) also had a label instructing us to get it aligned and our dealer reminded us to get it aligned as well before we drove away with it.

Our handling was not that bad, no shimmy or anything like that, but per the sticker and CW recommendation we are taking it to get aligned before the next trip. Our limited experience with Thor has been good so far.
