I thought dash heater and dash a/c used same vent hoses would have been my first assumption? Because my passenger side looked like this and it was for the vent to right of camera/stereo. Guess add this to my list as well

That's your standard Thor cab heater vent installation. Professional; isn't it?

Part of the spare parts that came with your motorhome kit. Should also have many spare screws, plastic ad wood pieces as well as wood shavings and sawdust.

Oh... I had no idea the spare parts included a small pipe. All the other items you mentioned I did receive.

I found a HDMI cable under the bathroom sink that was not hooked up to anything. Followed it as far as I could but it disappeared in the rear of the MH. My thought was itís for the TV in the bedroom. So I decided to look at what was plugged into it. What I learned was you canít get the TV off the wall. No kidding, I have no idea how Thor put the TV on that wall. It backs up to the shower. Please donít tell me if I want to change out the TV I will need to tear out the shower?

Can get your phone behind the TV. Maybe we could see a release clip or something

When I swapped out a TV in my Challenger what I found was Thor screwed metal bars to the TV, then attached the metal bars and TV to a wood panel which they then screwed to flimsy supports in the wall. I changed all of that out.

The thread where I posted the process is

http://www.thorforums.com/forums/f27...r-tv-3647.html

Could be you have something similar for mounting.

If you look closely there should be two spring loaded hooks at the bottom, one on each side. Normally the hooks have a small lanyard, mine didnít but I was still able to release them.

The only thing I can see at the bottom. Could not get a picture of the top but it looks like it has the same hardware. No way to get my hand back there. The TV does not move very much, really not at all.

That looks like the same mount my outside TV uses: it just unscrews from the wall top and bottom. Have to use skinny extensions.

There is no way to get to the top screws.

Hard to see but the top of the TV is almost touching the trim.

Well I think I made a big mistake. Bought a cover for the mh

Was a bitch to put on by myself. Hopefully when I remove it I'll fold it better to make it easier to put back on. Factory folding was tucked in side.

Needed the cover as the decals were starting to fade and crack

Time well tell if it was worth buying

Couple small mods/storage

I also removed the side panels to this window. The string is still there to maneuver the blinds but it is so close on that side I was afraid I would knock the panels off

I bought a nice broom that fits perfectly between the bathroom vanity and the shower and is almost completely out of site

I bought 2 smaller leather ottomans which are great when the chairs are turned for our feet and they are also great for storage. One keeps all of our manuals and maps etc and the other holds our DVDS we bring along

I keep a collapsible laundry basket under the dinette. Once we arrive I grab the laundry basket that is filled with the table cloth and bungees to hold it down, the table decorations, the smaller rugs I put down, and everything I need to set up once we arrive.

If your MH sits in the sun full time I definitely think having a cover is worth the effort and expense. I have had covers on a couple of our MHs and trailers, and yes they were a pain to put on and take off!

Couple of things I learned about covers: if it flaps, even a little, it will tear or get holes. Bungee cords are your friend, at least until one slips and smacks you in the face!!! Rolling the cover up when you take it off makes it easier to put back on and handle. I pulled the sides and ends up on top of the roof then rolled the cover front to back, made it a lot easier to put back on. Get help if you can, a six pack or two will be a big help enlisting friends for their muscles!!!
