Thor Motor Coach Focuses on Technology that Improves Owner Experience



Thor Motor Coach Focuses on Technology that Improves Owner Experience

Elkhart, Ind. – Innovation directed towards technology that makes owning and traveling in a motorhome easier is the focus of Thor Motor Coach.
Brand new to the Thor Motor Coach website is an Owners Resource a web-based portal giving owners access to relevant and specific information on their motorhome, including factory-installed components and equipment, owner’s manuals, electrical diagrams, plumbing schematics and more. No other competitor in the market has this type of resource available.

Multiplex control systems are found in most of Thor Motor Coach’s motorhomes. Multiplex wiring control systems allow owners to control lighting, check battery and water tank levels, and operate slideouts throughout the coach or even from a phone or tablet. TMC’s RUV line-up, which includes Compass, Gemini, Axis, and Vegas, has a new system that features both analog and digital controls. Class A motorhomes such has Aria, Challenger, Hurricane, Miramar, Outlaw, Palazzo, Tuscany, Venetian, and Windsport feature a multiplex wiring control system with a 7-inch touchscreen.

Standard this year on many 2020 motorhomes is the Winegard® ConnecT™ 2.0 4G LTE Router and WiFi Extender and over-the-air TV/FM antenna. Consumers will appreciate the fully integrated system that works together for maximum security, faster internet speeds, and increased range from any WiFi source. Plus, when WiFi is not available, it can connect to AT&T’s reliable nationwide 4G LTE network for uninterrupted RV internet streaming while traveling anywhere (subscription required).



Also new for owners is the Thor Motor Coach app, which helps with everything from tracking service and maintenance to trip planning. Favorite in-app features include:

Custom Checklist - Create a custom list or use helpful, preloaded checklists.
Roadtrippers Trip Planning - Map out destinations and plan something fun
Track RV Maintenance - Thor Motor Coach’s recommended maintenance schedule

The Winegard ConnecT and Thor Motor Coach app were created side by side so they could integrate. “We wanted to make it easy for owners to navigate through all the technology that is popping up in RVs lately,” said Jon Krider, VP of Marketing and Product Development. “Having the Winegard controls available within the Thor Motor Coach app just made sense, and we are applying this concept with other partners.”

Finally, besides convenience and accessibility, Thor Motor Coach partnered with SiriusXM® this year. Owners of 2020 Thor Motor Coach RVs will receive a three-month SiriusXM All Access subscription, SiriusXM’s most expansive programming package which includes access to the SiriusXM mobile app.

We recently looked at a Thor 2019 Challenger with the idea of updating. I hated the all in one control panel (and some other so called advancements) that we decided to stick with our 2014. Give me good old fashioned light switches and controls that handle one thing only. I get it that millenials like the new electronics, but are there really that many millenials buying motorhomes? BTW hated the folding bed too.
