Just came from Yellowstone, went up I-25 through Casper Wyoming, from El Paso ,Texas
Picked up I-26 through Shoshone Wyoming, then I-20 to Cody Wyoming, there picked up
I-14 in to east gate Yellowstone, left Yellowstone headed to Wisconsin, went through
Bighorn National Forest , would advise not to travel this route, as they have high
Mountain Passes and very steep grades, tight corners, took us an extended amount of time, because of the terrain , white knuckle it all the way , Good luck !!

It was my pleasure. Just glad I got out when I did. I came close more than I'm comfortable with. Today's law enforcement is not was I was used to. Too many fallen officers now, God Bless them all.

Since my last posting, I made the Yellowstone trip, without a hitch.

2018 Hurricane 35M

After 7 months in the shop, we finally got the "new" coach back and have had a chance to take a shakedown cruise. Arizona to Arkansas and return with no problems. The drive shaft was repaired and the front end aligned by Firebird Tire in Phoenix and the coach really drives well now. I did have a Steer Safe stabilizer ( ยป Steer Safe Units) installed by the factory in Deming NM and that made a huge difference.

The biggest complaint now is the body sway and I'm going to do the CHF next week prior to buying an expensive sway bar. I have also just installed a 5 Star Tuning program to improve shift points and engine performance. ( and have not tried this mod yet. A trip to the mountains is in order after the CHF is applied. I could not stand the engine screaming when on cruise and climbing a hill and 5 Star Tuning is supposed to reprogram the shift points for overall improvement.

My overall experience with Thor customer service has been good but the workmanship or lack thereof will make me look for a different manufacturer next time around. Very shoddy build and materials used, quality control is lacking big time.
