Looks like Thor has listened to their customers and made some good improvements on their newer models

My coach has no real back splash, the walls behind stove and sink are just covered with the same stuff the rest of the coach is done with.
I would be interested in those glass tiles. Do they come in sheets that are just glued to the existing wall covering, or is it required to prime or pre-treat those areas first? Once installed, do they need some kind of grouting?

The tiles are a 10 x 10 inch sheet, peel and stick, cut to fit with scissors. The mounting surface needs to be clean and dry. I would lightly sand with 400 grit, wipe with alcohol, and allow to dry. Need to be applied in warm weather for better adhesion. Lowes has a good selection as does Home Depot.

Thanks! We have a Home Depot in town. And the temperature is important for all kinds of pressure sensitive adhesives (I bet they have some type of 3M adhesive coated on).

I got my dash cam last week. Since the mh was at the dealer I put it in the truck since its the most used vehicle. So far it works well. Plan to keep it in the truck all the time and only use it in the mh when we go on trips.


So I've been copying Dino as much as I can. Ordered the couch covers, still waiting for them, just ordered the day/night shades from Steve's. I got a better sale than Dino. The two shades cost $318 I went 1/2" longer that Dino, 60 1/2' instead of 60. Wife says a 1/2" makes a difference. She would know!!! so that's what I went with.


Rain is expected thru Friday so things will have to wait.

I am interested in the front window shade. How is this attached to the top of the coach? Could it be used as a sun visor in a partially lowered position (the ones that Thor provided me with are basically a very poor joke).

If Hudsoner was referring to the windshield shade, then I want to add another interest.


What and how have people added shade to the cockpit side/upper windows. It would be nice to have a vertically adjusted screen for these, especially the topmost windows,

I am interested to find out about that, too.
I try to upgrade my coach as much as possible, because I do not want to change it. I do not want any slide and all the problems that seem to be associated with them. I don't think that you can get a new motorhome without slides. That is the reason that I try to install all the new features that I like and leave the things like outside TV, and the storage space wasting outside kitchen alone.

You are most welcome a have fun here...as for the side Driver and Passenger windows, if you have the overhead bunk it will be a challenge installing roller shades on those windows, I do and I haven't quite figured it out yet...for the time being, I am using "Reflectix" for the uppermost window.
