I can see your pics now...must be my server screwing up again!

No catalog that I know of but if you ask for the parts department they will look up for you and give you the part numbers.

Interesting to see that the stove cover board has not changed at all over the last decade or so! Mine looks identically to yours, and it works really great. Even bad road surfaces do not knock it out of it's position

I have them for a few years now. Just be aware that the tie wraps will deteriorate and break over time. I had to replace three of them a short while ago.

I have the same question, and also, where did you get this and what did it cost?

The wall is thin plywood but after mounting it seems more than secure. The outer plastic cover slides over the mount, I used clear silicone to glue it and the tray in place. The cup holder uses three screws to fasten it on with a trim ring that snaps on. Wife loves it!
Again, where did you get this? Do you have a link for it?

Just should have read on, and I would have seen it!

How much money did they want for it? I am contemplating about building something, but if the Thor price is right......

I got the parts for free, guess the lady felt sorry for my wife not having a convenient cup holder! I wouldn't count on being able to do that, I think it depends on getting the right person on the right day.

I did call last week about a front grill replacement. I had heard of people having a whistle at about 50 mph, ours did that but after careful adjustments to the hood it stopped. I think what Thor sends is a screen type material, not sure, but hoping it will provide better rock and bug protection. Lady said she would ship to me for free, I'm anxious to see what I receive. Thor can be pretty nice if you say please!

The white zip ties that come with the fridge vent screens are pretty flimsy, I used better quality, thicker ties to mount the screens. The better ties should last a long time.

Thanks, I will send the an email, can you provide me with the part number, or shall I just use a picture of your installation?

I don't know hat kind of front grill the newer units have. I have a factory install aluminum grill. It has square holes of about 1/4" and the material is also about 1/4" thick. I basically is a grate that is bolted to the inside over the openings. I do not have any whistling noise, but the holes are big enough to allow any insect to make its way to the radiator. Only the really big ones, like dragon flies, are caught by this grille. But it also allows unrestricted airflow to the radiator.
The picture shows kind of how this grill looks like.

SuperD: Can you still swivel the passenger seat with the new cup holder in place?

To be honest I don't know, haven't tried to turn it. The cup holder doesn't stick out that far and is mounted as far forward as it will go.

Ok, trying to play catchup to Dino and Jerry, ordered my couch cover today. I agree that it will make a good addition and protect the sofa, anxious to get it. Dino, thank you for including the link! On the dinette I bought 2 cans of Scotch Guard and sprayed the fabric part of the cushions. Caution: be careful and do not get on the pleather, it will stain and change color.

This is a pic of the carbon water filter I added to the cold water side of kitchen sink. My wife is picky about her coffee and with this filter she's getting good clean water. Filter is an inline hose filter with garden hose to 1/2 inch npt fittings.

Here are the led replacement bulbs I added to the bathroom, MUCH brighter than the original bulbs, adds a lot of light to the bathroom area.

Beautiful day today so i decided to get to work.

Installed the booster for my tpms. I mounted it under the mh directly behind the license plate. Removed plate and drilled two mounting holes. Bolted on the booster and put the license plate back on. Ran the wires and zip tied along the way. I tied into the power and ground wiring for the light in the rear drivers side storage compartment.

Fairly easy job but my back and neck have a hard time when i crawl under the mh. I have several herniated disk in my lower back and neck so i take my time. After doing jobs like this i hurt the rest of the night but feel fine in the morning

Rear track bar to come soon

I did the same - but didn't want the exposed LED's in the open fixtures - so went with these bulbs instead.
Definitely brighter than what was there - and much cooler.
