THOR #11774
Hello from Marietta, Georgia

Just purchased a new 2018 Hurricane 29m.

I've had it in the driveway for a week ... getting familiar with the various systems. Next weekend is our first short shake-down trip.

Already have a short list of warrant items but nothing (so far) that I was not expecting.

Had some low voltage errors on the leveling jacks this morning. Realized the house batteries were low. I think the DVD, Media switch and HD antenna were left on so guessing that may have been the issue. Gennie would not crank over either. A few minutes on shore power (15A) seems to have solved the problem.

This site and YouTube have been a great help.

Dave

Congrats and welcome to the forum!

There is an entire thread started by a fellow 29M owner with lots of tips and mods called "Jerry's Hurricane Mods" that you will probably find VERY useful.

Welcome to the Thor forum from fellow Mariettans (Although we spend seven months of the year in Alaska where I am now). We have a 2017 Thor ACE 29.3 that we use extensively during the winter which is substantially similar to your. We had a few warranty issues, mostly silly that really should have been caught by cursory quality control at the factory and a quick look-through from Camping World. I'd buy another one though!! Once out of warranty, find a good independent RV service place to deal with. CW is just too busy with only three work bays at the Woodstock location. Learn to fix things yourself as well, many times by far the easiest. It shouldn't be that way, but it is.

Thanks for the info. We got our rig from the CW in Oakwood (near Gainsville). We have a cabin north of Clarkesville so it's on the way and where we keep it parked.

Doubt that CW is any better though.

I'm calling them next week. Hoping to get a same day appointment to have then go over what is needed (parts, etc) and then I'll go back when the parts come in. I want to have the rig while we wait for approval and parts.
