Ace Fender Skirt Replacement

Anyone know where to obtain one?

Thor does not, or will not, respond to messages left on the Thor support ph. # (877-855-2867) - same with their on-line "chat" support.

Purchasing dealer referred me to outside retailers who do not carry/manuf. the particular item.

Thanks in advance!

Thor came thru today on a e-mail response to my Fender Skirt replacement question (for 2014 ACE 27.1) Thank you Thor support! Response below...

"The color on your unit is no longer available. This is a substitute part 0291722.
This can be ordered from a Thor Motor Coach dealer."

My follow-up question sent today: Can material be painted?
(FYI, the varied color scheme on my 2014 is referred to "Happy Penny" - the skirt is a hi-gloss 'tanish' finish/color.) Will advise if more from Thor.

Received following answer from Thor Support:

"Yes, with automotive paint."

Meantime, jumped the gun and ordered following skirt from icondirect.com that comes painted in "champagne" which I hope is close enough.

I also hope it fits: the width measurement is 40 " for a four winds MH. This is 1/2" to 1" too wide but all other dimensions match - so am further hoping the flexible material will flex 'in' enough to fit the frame cut-out on the ACE w/o distorting.

Part is specifically for a Four Winds Single Axle Fender Skirt (PN#FS2123).
The comments of other buyers say it also fits a Hurricane so my 4th hope is that THOR used same skirt on ACE too. We'll see.

FYI, iconDirect.com informs me the fender skirt I ordered (see prior post) has a textured finish (my Ace fenders have hi gloss finish).

It arrived and fits the radius perfectly but the 'Height' measurement is too long (25 1/2") so it extends below the wheel well frame about 3/8" on each vertical leg. It is just slightly off in color while the texture finish is practically non-noticeable.

So, tired of messing with it, and the remaining choice being to order the Thor part (which is the wrong color), I just rotated the icon.Direct part so the excess gap is all to the aft of the wheel well & then trimmed it off square. Kinda hokey and kinda hate it, but not worth another $185 (includes $50 shipping to CW for the Thor unit) not to mention a RT of over 200 mi to get it. It'll do for now.
