Thor Four Winds 35SK New Owner;s Report

Thor Four Winds 35SK “Super C”
We have had our motor home for about four months now and have put about 2,000 miles on it. We love the vehicle and are very happy with our purchase. Here is a list of the things we love and a list of minor problems.
We Love:
1. Diesel power – Engine is quiet and rarely has to downshift even on hills. The speed control will easily hold 60 mph when crossing the Sierra Nevada mountains on interstate 80.
2. Easy to drive and comfortable to drive. This vehicle is much less affected by crosswinds and passing vehicles than our prior motor home an Itasca Navion.
3. Solid Chassis – Only two minor squeaks which were easily repaired with a couple squirts of oil (TV latch and oven door hinge).
4. Quality components
5. Floor plan – lots of counter space and a walk around bed, lots of indoor storage.
6. Residential refrigerator
7. Auto start diesel generator


Minor Problems – all resolved by owner

1. Leak in sink drain pipe located in a clean out under the refrigerator. It leaked like a sieve. Apparently the cleanout was not properly glued in place. Easily fixed by gooping the outside of the joint with PVC cement.
2. Adjustment needed to the TV latch and one drawer latch due to alignment issues
3. Impossible to remove the diesel generator oil drain plug without using a bolt extraction tool. (corners were rounded off the drain plug hex bolt). Removed by owner with a Sears bolt extraction tool and replaced with a new drain plug. This is not a Thor issue. It is a Cummings issue.
4. Jensen TV speakers were poor quality and covered by cabinet. Easily fixed by adding a Visio 2.0 sound bar ($70) to the cabinet immediately below the TV.
We believe these problems are minor and better than I expected in a new motor home.

We are still gaining experience and need to try dry camping to see how long the generator must run each day (because of the 110 volt refrigerator) to recharge the batteries. We will add a tow vehicle in the future.

Once again we are very happy with our motor home and will be spending at least four months per year living in and traveling in it.

Hello Jim, I just came across your post. How's everything going with your Four Winds up to now? Seems my issues from the beginning were similar to yours. All were minor and taken care of by the dealership under warranty. Some recent HEAVY and BIG hail has put a temporary stop to our travels. Waiting on insurance appraisal outcome. Hope all is well.

Hello Jim,

I'm currently in the market searching for a 2015-16 35SB and was wondering, if you didn't mind sharing what was your final price on the 35SK?

We once the extensive punch list was complete, which took four trips and 8 months. I am now happy to say, I love this unit with the diesel engine. It drives great. Thor missed so much stuff, its embarrassing. Let me know if you want the list.
