THOR #9488
Serous safety issue Aria

As we pulled into our campground today we heard a very unusual noise. Turned out to be the refrigerator coming unglued. It broke loose and was up against the bathroom wall.
Thor, you have a very bad design problem that could seriously injure someone. The bottom of the refrigerator is secured to a horizontal piece of cabinetry that is attached from behind with four screws angled into the vertical pieces. Each of the screw has barely one quarter inch of wood behind the screw which holds the entire weight of the refrigerator.

Thor, you need to take immediate action to notify owners before someone gets seriously hurt.

We have a 2018 Aria 3401....not sure if other models are built same way.

Sadly, given what we see on the forums here, there is no way to be sure that every Aria 3401 is built the same way--it really isn't a design problem, its an assembly problem. Each coach is, more or less, hand built and thus each coach is unique to a point.

Thus your unit is likely not the same as other 3401's. It is something that 3401 owners should inspect, but I would suspect that they find something different...

Built on a Friday it would seem...
