THOR #4486
Front cap on 2015 Challenger

On our way to Florida in late March, noticed that some screws that secure the front cap to drivers side wall broke. Thor agreed to fix this under warranty even though my warranty has expired. My only option for a repair facility is a Camping World 90 miles away with a reputation for incompetence (from a past warranty service experience). The repair looks pretty simple if I can just drill holes from inside the wheel well and re-secure from the back instead of the front which would require removing the painted trim. Has anyone seen this issue before and have any suggestions on repair?

THOR #1469
Happened on my 37ND right after we brought it home. Called Thor and they deferred the repair until after the shake down trip then replaced the screws and resealed the trim under warranty. Haven't had any problems since.
