Can't help you on the fridge question. Call thor or go to an rv repair shop to get ideas. You might have to modify a cabinet or two

Hey buddy,... hope all is well, it's been a minute... haven't been on here for a while , thought i'd check your thread for new ideas

here an update, as you might remember, the day they delivered my coach I removed all the sticker... took less than an hour....next,... we went on a 2 week trip and I was able to convince my wife we need recliners, and from day one she has never layed down on the couch...so,.. it got that done today... I removed the pad off the bottom as if you recall the seat hight was a concern of mine.. it did lower it about an inch... I just unhooked the duct where it was spliced and left it behind the sofa on the floor,... my idea was that the seats would be warm and also retain the radiant heat longer...... I've got over 9000 miles trouble free from the coach sor far, and we are very happy with it..
also we got a yorkie pup.....lol..she sure is feisty

also. if you remember I moved our tv to the dinette window wall . so it's pretty much right in front of the recliners, took about an hour to install the rec-pro, and thanks for recomending them.. i took about 4 days for it to get to vegas, so I was way happy

also want to let you now I got the 300 watt solar done... sure works great..

happy trails my friend....hope to get the chance to meet up with you some day...

here's the longevity problem with paint on the west coact,... unless it spends most of it's time in a garage, it'll check and peel the clear coat will go first, if you do paint, the paint line will be thick, so unless you clear the whole coach...you'll have an edge there

also, where i extended the front area floor with the can goods locker, keeping all the weight out of the upper cabinets , no squeaks or rattles in the coach...

also, don't know if you remember me telling you I was gonna lower the bed 8''
turned out to be way way more work than I would ever do again.... but we are enjoying it,.. we're both Hight challenged...

I posted this on the maintenance/repair section and got a couple responses but haven't found a solution. With all the action and DIYers maybe someone has an idea! Oh, and a couple mods too replaced flooring with LVP, sound insulated doghouse and changed out the carpet on the firewalll.

My issue at hand:

I no longer have power with the key in accessory or running to anything powered by the relays below. This includes, power mirrors, cameras, dash fan and a/c controls, hyd jack panel, pass/ driver fans, etc. When I turn the key backward to acc I get the power to those items so it's not the wiring to the fuse panel. I believe I've narrowed it down to the ignition switch itself so I've ordered a replacement. I've changed out two unmarked relays under the dash as well but they weren't the culprit. Looking for ideas if anyone has experienced similar. 2017 Windsport 34J

If so, which trac bar did you go with?



I ask because I am really thinking I will want both of these.

Just deciding on which order I get them.



Thanks.

Well, time was going to win no matter what.

Sorry you're feeling bad.
When you're better, you'll be so much better.

Weíre in San Diego County.
My wife is diabetic, got the virus in Oct, lasted nearly 4 wks until she felt normal.
Iím considered a heart disease patient. I caught the virus last week, but lasted only a few days. I feel great now.
Iíve read that some of the heart meds Iím taking (statins and thinners) donít allow the virus to metastasize.
But itís just a theory.
