THOR #21829
New to Thor

We recently purchased a new to us 2015 Thor 29.2. We looked for a couple of years and finally found what we were looking for at the right price although it does new a little TLC and a new slide topper awning. The mounting brackets are there but no awning or roller. Is there a good source for those other than the dealer? The coach also has a Jensen radio in the bed room night stand that will not shut off. It went into storage for a couple of months so I disconnected the units power. This is probably an item that needs to be replaced?


This is our 4th motor home and we love it. The others were a 2000 Winnebago, 1996 Tioga and and a 1987 Mallard over the last 26 years.


Looking forward to spring here in the Rocky Mountains.

So I assume that is an ACE 29.2?

The bedroom radio will shut off (as well as almost all DC loads) by placing the USE/STORE (battery disconnect) switch in the STORE (disconnected) position. When that radio has power, even when it's turned off, the LED will be lit. Most people go into the radio's settings and set the LED brightness level to "0" which turns it off.

Welcome to the forum. The slide topper can be replaced by most r v shops other than the dealer. Shop around and get some prices to compare. They are pretty common item to replace since they are out in the sun 24/7.

Enjoy the new ride.

Yes it is an ACE 29.2.


Thanks for the info on the bedroom radio. Probably not an issue most of the time but we put it in storage until spring. So I pulled the radio and disconnected it. Still a lot to learn about it.



As for the slide awning, it is missing. The brackets are there but no awning or roller so I need to buy a new one. ~ $400 from camping world. I didn't know if there were better options


I also want to add a receiver hitch on the front for my bicycle rack, 2 heavy electric bikes. We will commonly have a boat in tow. I have seen a post on one but no details on how it was done or if purchased.




Other than a good cleaning and probably new batteries (original) just minor cosmetic work. The decal / applique on the front looks to have gotten hot, but the fiberglass shows no heat on the inside.
