Post Hello Thor owners!

I'm new to this Forum. I have a 2014 Vegas purchased last year. It's a very nice unit and in good condition.

Because of the odd space, I have a difficult time hooking up the hose nozzle to the pipe drain of the black and grey holding tanks. Anyone else have this problem?

Does anyone have a solution to stop the entry door, when kept wide open, from moving when it's really windy?

Thanks!

Rosie in Michigan

The pipe drain rotates. You can push it up or down.

Make sure you download Ed's crowd sourced manual for the Axis/Vegas units:

Welcome to the forum and the world of VEGAS ownership...

On your GREY and BLACK tank question, are you swiveling the nozzle down to the opening in the bottom of the sewage compartment?

I was afraid I was going to "break" ours the first few times, but, it really does swivel.

On the door, at least on our 2016, there is an arm at the bottom of the door that keeps it from going to far..

Ours keeps coming in screwed, but we just reconnect

Mo Mike,

It's funny you said that. I have the same arm at the bottom of the door on my Windsport, and it keeps coming off too, but I just reconnect it.

Good to see you are following in the footsteps of the Thor installers. I finally got sick of doing that and took one end out screwed both sides tight and put the end back in - but just screwing it back together works too.

We removed the gas strut from our entry door and put in an old school door stop and lock on the side of the RV. Now the door is almost 180 degrees open and not subject to being blown around as much, nor is any stress put on the gas strut as it was before. We always wondered why Thor like to have the main entry door stop at 90 degrees...

Sadly this won't work with an older Axis or Vegas as the awning strut is in the way. The 2018's don't have the awning strut there so that would work for them.

Rt,

On your 2014 Vegas the door will bash against the awning stuts in the wind. Cut a 6" or so piece of a pool floating tube, split it and slide it over the awning strut. There are several threads on this forum with this fix.
