List of Outlaw Owners

Me thinks it is more a 37LS than a 3611. Those batteries and leveling pump/solenoid unit are obviously in a bin...not under the entry Stair and under the hood like our Gen1's have.

The obvious floor plan change, 3611 to 37LS was with the sofa sleeper...the 3611 has the sofa aligned so the fold-up bed can be fully open with the slide in (retracted)...it's frame is touching the kitchen cabinet, but fully opens.
The 37LS moved bits which prevent this, with too much overlap to fully deploy the sleeper sofa with slide in.

Wiper and level

Wiper issue on our 2014 37LS. I have tightened the nuts with loc-tite, as found as a solution here, but the passenger blade still overthrows, seems OK at low and intermittent speeds, and then stays all the way to the drivers side. It seems to me like the linkage arm is too long. Has anyone had success fixing this? I know there was a recall but it has supposedly been done.

Also my leveling unit usually says voltage too low when trying to auto level. Says that with the engine and generator running. Is this possibly a ground issue? does anyone know where the ground wire is so I can check it?

Sorry to confuse...
The model number should be on the exterior wall right by the entry door bar.
2013 saw the creation of Thor Motor Coach and the change of the floorplan names. Before 2013, there was Damon, Four Winds, and Mandalay Luxury Coach...each with a full line of motorhomes. Some overlapping models were ceased and FourWinds became just Class "C" models.

The published floor plan of the LS Outlaw is near identical to the 3611, except for the alignment of the sofa/sleeper and the forward end of the kitchen cabinet. Other small changes, like the leveling master unit have occured separate from the name change as they tweeked the bits over time.

I first discovered the floorplan change at an RV show...looking at a LS, I found the slide had to be extended to fully open the conventional sofa/sleeper. No problem unless you want to stop with the slide staying retracted (Wally-Docking, extreme cold, etc). And, later models had a different style sofa that used less room when in the sleeper position...so it was not a show stopper.

Replacing Awning Material

I need to replace the material in our awning. I have a 2013 Outlaw 3611 and the size of the awning is 21 ft X 6' 4"

Is this something that I can do if mechanically inclined? Or should I leave that to the professionals?

The RV Geeks have some great videos on how to do this:

We have a 2013 3611 also. Think of it as a Gen 1.5.... The sofa bed can still open while the slide is closed. We only have the 24,000 chassis and we have the fueling station on the single main gas tank.... Those are Gen 1 features. The batteries and leveling hydraulics are in the open basement bay on driver's side just aft of the engine, which is Gen 2. Gen 2 also added the passenger pull out desk and the rear deck feature which 2013 didn't get.
2013 is mostly Gen 1 with just a few Gen 2 features.

The manual A&E awning fabric replacement is surely a DIY job for the mechanically inclined...but is yours powered?

Scott referenced the RVGeeks. They demonstrate 2 ways of awning fabric replacement in their videos. Most all their videos include having lots of helpers:
For this and lots more, see their YouTube Channel here:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2E...uwQn-uCHl58m_Q

But if you don't have all the help, the manual awning can still be done DIY like shown in this YouTube video:


If yours is powered, I believe you will need at least 1 helper

Best luck

Worth salvage? Was at CoParts in MI.
Well, someone bought it. Lots of parts could come off of it

What I noticed:
*Possibly a partial roll-over...lower front passenger corner took a hard hit (missing wall material).
*There does not appear to be any failure at the side wall-roof joint.
*Both front quarter-panels separated (but the pass side took the lower frame tube with the wall).
*Slide is open at the top (slide-lock was not used, or failed).
*The rear wall came completely off, but the ramp is still attached at the hinge.
*Front facing dinette seating space is intact (possibly safest passenger seat with extra framing of the slide).
*Eurocliner/lounge chair was not restrained.

Opinions/Observations?

Wow, that is a sad and sobering sight. That is a twin of my coach. Can you tell if it's a Ford or WH?

Ya, I never cared for that dumb Eurorecliner footstool. Never brought it along. It was always in the way and there was no way to restrain it.

I wonder if the frontquarterpanelitist was pre-existing, or happened in the accident

I wonder if anything was being transported in the garage, and how that fared.

The wreck was a Workhorse W24...from the CoPart ad:

Other than the drive train and generator, there doesn't look like there is a lot to be salvaged. Door, windows, cabinets?
