ACE-condensation

Will want to discuss this further. Furnace on our trip worked great as did a/c. Went from low 80's to low of 32 one night. Ran furnace 2 nights. After leaving within about 30 minutes we noticed the same drip that ShadowT reported on the passengers side console coming from the covered area on cieling before windshield. Anyone else? obviously we need to get some ventilation/moving air into that upper location. Later

Yes. I had the same situation and the same result recently. I am getting it checked out today.

After months of fighting the drips, it is gone! In cold climates moisture from people, showers, and cooking, dishwashing, ironing, all contribute to moisture buildup. It fogs windows and condenses and drips from seals above the front window...

I purchased a 6 qt dehumidifier, Frigidare, perfect dryness no drips. No need to vent your heat outside on cold days. My unit has an adjustable humidity by percent. It is a bit bigger than I wanted, will need to secure it while moving. I fear no more the damage of moisture buildup.

Folks that's just WRONG! there is no way for moisture to vent from that area-Thor fouled up good-again on the ACE. We plan on keeping ours only because our dealer (Guarantee) is a great place and is helping us get repair, redress for the over 110 defects in our NEW 2012 Evo 29.1 From screws thru the tile, to a sprung bed(Made that way? thrmostat broke when Bathroom door hit it etc etc etc.

Great Idea, Great layout and a kick in the butt to drive but--mehh

condensation/gramp

WoW!. 110 item list. I suspect mine would be approx 20. Our bath door swings opposite the thermostat and we have brick pattern VCT(linoleum) and no visible screws. I believe you got the lemon of the group of us that have reported previously. Thank goodness you have a good service center covering everthing under warranty I presume? I would be contacting THOR personally with that number of issues. And THOR recently patted themselves on the back with thier stellar quality control program. Keep us posted on progress.

I think you may be right. Today I went out -turned on the furnace --and again! the warning light went red on the propane detector. This after having the sensors replaced, dealer inspection on lines and propane leak test.

Also air gap in door frame by lock.

I'm at wits end here, I believe I will be on the horn to Thor tomorrow, I

believe they need to send a factory rep out to see these things -just too darned many screw-ups on most I've heard of. New model be dammed-.

I've had the propane alarm go on about once a month but it is not RED it is YELLOW (indicating an internal fault). I have to pull the fuse and re-seat it and the beeping goes away and the light goes GREEN. It first went off crossing the mountains. I was not using propane heating at the time. In the rear right of the ACE is the propane heater. There is no adjustment on the forced air heater like the hot water heater. I do not smell any of that LP smell. I do not think it is a problem....but.you folks are making me think more about it.
