2006 Four Winds Hurricane

I am new to iRV2 and new to the 2006 Hurricane, but I have been RVing since 1999. I had a 1994 Bounder and put over 100,000 miles on it including a 4 month 12,000 milke trip to Alaska that we loved. I just bought the Hurricane a couple of months ago and have lots of questions about it that is not in the owners manual. I can't even seem to find who manufactured this RV. When I go to Four Winds or Thor and seach for literature for a Hurricane the list jumps from year 2000 to 2008. There doesn't seem to be a gravity fill for the fresh water so how do I add fresh water treatment to the tank? What size are the Black & Gray water tanks? I used to go ten days on the Bounder between dumping tanks. We wash dishes in a dishpan and throw it out and take showers at the campground shower room but doing the same thing in the Hurricane the tanks were full in four days. The slides will hardly move in or out untill they have been operated a time or two. I want to chech the hydraulic fluid as the whole unit is wet and may be low but what kind of fluid is required and how full should it be? Do the jacks use the same pump as the slides?
I will appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Thanks,

Ira Watts

This may be an answer to one of your questions about water treatment. Connect the water hose to your "filll" connection, then pour the correct amount of bleach into the other end of the hose, connect that end to the fresh water source and turn it on. The water flushes the bleach into the tank. That's the way I do mine. Rook

First +1 on putting bleach in the fill hose. Works for me too. Hurricanes are built by Thor. As for the tank sizes it would help to know what model that you have. My 32R has a 65 gal fresh water tank, 44 gal black, and 50 gal gray tank. If you have HWH slides and jacks you only have one pump for all. You can use Dexron ATF for the pump. The fill cap on top of the pump tank should have a built in dipstick. I'm sure you know to check the level with slides in and jacks up. Lots more info in the Thor Owners Forum at http://www.irv2.com/forums/f121/

Ira, you have many questions that are hard to answer without looking at what you have.

How about a model number?

Where did you buy it? Dealer or private?

If you are coming around the junction of I-81 and I-26, send me a message. I have a 2006 Four Winds Windsport made by the same folks as yours. I could help you go over some of your systems.

This is my biggest complaint re: Four Winds/Thor - lack of documentation. I managed to obtain many of my diagrams but they hemmed and hawed, moaned and groaned, and basically acted like I wanted them to crap out these documents covered in gold leaf. Even when I did get documents, they were incomplete or for the wrong unit. Be persistent with them, you will get your info.

Try this link too for info:
