THOR #3518
Window Crank

Have a 2015 Thor Four Winds 35SK. We are just out of warranty and have several issues that have arisen in addition to the 15 or so issues that were taken care of during the warranty period. We have a window crank that is stripped. Has anyone changed one before? I looked at it and it seems to have rivets and not screws. These are the frame less windows. Thanks in advance for the info.

Are you sure it is the crank and not the handle? Mine striped out, and all I had to do was replace the handle that is plastic and the groves rounded over from me taking it off and not putting it on right. My bad. But make sure it is not the handle.

Problem probably resulted from hard to close window. Look at end of arms on window end and you will a small plastic disk that rides in a track. I put small dab of silicon paste lube on a q tip and with window almost full open lubed both sides. Window now operates with ease. Did it to all of them and every one got easier to open and close.

I had to get mine from the dealer, I'm still looking for a parts vendor that can sell us things we need for our Thor Motorcoaches.

If you coach has Hehr windows, here is a link to some manuals

servicemanuals


Since my coach is at the dealer (80 miles north) I cannot walk outside and verify the window manufacturer.


Here is the link to a window parts supplier. Not sure, but it looks like they have the knob for the Hehr windows. If I am right the part number for the knob is 008-203.

Upon further inspection, looks like the screw holding the handle on was missing thus causing the handle to strip when trying to close tight. Even though it is stripped, reinstalled with the found screw and seems to tighten better but I think will still need to replace handle. Thanks for the link, will check it out.
