I just bought new 2019 Thor Windsport 34J and couldn't agree more. Worst quality control I have ever experienced. Having regrets now...

The factory installed flush systems normally use a No Fuss Flush system which includes a vacuum breaker check valve. These are plumbed on the opposite side of the MH in the bathroom because the bathrooms are on the opposite side of the wet bay.
1st time I used mine this valve was installed incotrectly and put water on the bathroom floor and under the dinette. I have a 2018 Windsport 29M. Many others have had this issue. Sorry to say.

Some of the water was getting to the black tank, as it was draining down the sewer hose, but not much. Has anyone had this fixed and therefore knows if there is a common problem, and how to fix? (ACE 29.4)
I had this issue with no water getting into the tank. CW worked on it and said the vacuum breaker was stuck and preventing it from fiction. I think they did something else as well, but didn't admit to it. Check the vacuum breaker and make sure it's working.

Bought coach at CW in March, spent most of March and April sitting at dealership and picked up last week with only 3 of 15 warranty issues resolved and just added 4 more.
The exact same thing happened when I bought my 2018 Outlaw 29H last year the first time out. My vacuum valve was in the wall where the main control panel is located. They had to tear the wall apart to fix it.

My dealer was smart and created an access panel in case it ever fails in the future so the entire wall does not need to be torn apart to get to the plumbing. If your valve does not have easy access, you may want to ask them to create an access panel to get to it easier in the future.

Where is your 29H San-t-flush fill port? Itís supposed to be standard but I think they forgot to install mine. (just like they forgot my garage cabinet)

The port to connect the hose is just above the black and grey tank drain. If you open the door to the drain, it is near the hinge on the left side.

Thanks...we haven't had a chance to bring it to the dealer yet. Camping in Portland and now shower pan / drain is leaking...dripping onto dually tires. WTF is wrong with Thor QC? Our list of things not working is around 25...some fairly major.

Saniflush problems

We just bought a 2020Freedom Elite 26í and took it for a shakedown. When attempting to flush the black tank with the saniflush line it began flowing clean water inside the coach, bathroom and bedroom. Needless to say I used a wand to flush. No water entered the tank via the saniflush line btw.

It is amazing..... more like unacceptable.... that Thor continues to make new units with this problem!

The problem is the Vacuum Breaker Valve that is supposed to prevent water from backing up from the black tank into the plumbing.

For the past 3 or 4 years Thor has consistently installed either defective Vacuum Breakers or they have installed them backwards in the San-T-Flush plumbing.

We just took our 2018 Outlaw 29H out for the first time since they fixed our San-T-Flush issue. It worked great now that it is fixed working properly and much better than pouring water into the tank from the toilet.

Our dealer even made an access panel to make it easier to replace the Vacuum Breaker if it ever fails again.
