The typical dealer approach is zip ties....not sure that is the best answer.Attachment 40681Attachment 40682
The question will be whether or not you are willing to pay for something other than what Thor is willing to do under warranty, if anything. Your best option expired when you accepted the coach as it is and drove it off the lot. When you drove away your bargaining chip was left with the dealer.

Honestly, unless that was identified during the PDI, expect them to say itís your problem.

Putting liability aside what is the remedy.

Buy zip ties of varying sizes and start securing the wires in a manner that you like.

Securing wires is one of those things often considered normal maintenance and not covered by warranty.

Actually received an email from another REP with Thor who apologized for the confusion as the 2023 ACE had some spec changes..that are not yet in the Owners Resources. That is why I was led to believe the battery bay was the location..old spec.

I guess with the loss of the brow, the location of the hydraulic pump changed as well.

I asked why and the reply was I don't know, just a new model year and changes were made.

Perhaps they wanted to free up the space in the battery bay for more than 2 batteries if one wanted to do that...just my thought.

I went under and tied mine up and I pulled on all there connections and replaced as necessary. If the used a crimp connector outside and it wasn't the heat shrink type I replaced them. I think if I find anymore I'll solder them and use heat shrink tubing on them. I found over the years the cheap cable ties will break if it gets real cold

I have three batteries in my bay with the pump in there .... this is another poor change in design by Thor .. less access for the owner ...
Also just a heads up i would move all the wiring and breakers that are behind the batteries to the side wall ... some people have had issues with them getting wet....

My ACE also has room for that third battery. I also installed a 1/2" plywood bord on the front wall and moved all the breakers, the BIRD/Trombetta, and other items to that wall within easy reach. Yours looks great.

Thor actually got back with me...said change was to increase storage space!

No idea when updated schematics get posted on Owners Resource Hub.

When I was touring the factory (Plant 750) in the fall of 2016, the biggest gripes of the couples with us was the lack of basement storage in the coaches (27-35 ft) and the lack of a 10 gallon water heater. In my 31S Hurricane, in the basement storage compartments are an outside kitchen, 50 gallon water tank, generator, propane tank, battery compartment, the wet bay and hydraulic jack compartment. All are located in the front of the coach (except the outside kitchen and the wet bay) to put the max weight on the front axle to assist in handling and polar moment of inertia, or so the salesman tour guide told us. The 31S has five usable, empty basement compartments which are plenty for the two of us.
