Wow.



Thank you John for your prompt and somewhat snarky response.

Jeff, Lazydays in Tucson is a Thor dealer, they are right off I-10 on Irvington Road. Maybe they can help you get the part.

Thanks for that Lisa. I'm not sure how Thor determines what a dealer is. Thor's website searches dealers and service centers separately. They list the closest dealer to AZ is in San Marcos CA. They list numerous service centers in AZ, so I guess I'll check those.

I stopped in the Avondale Camping World to check their parts dept last week to inquire about my part (no go) and noticed they have some new Challengers, Tuscanys and Palazzos for sale, but they are not a Thor dealer?!

I also called the most local listed Newmar dealer in Mesa to inquire about the part that John was kind enough to alert me of, and they said they stock no parts, and it was the parts dept I called?!

Jeff,
That is so strange. We bought our ACE 30.1 at Lazydays last March. It is up there now for warranty work.

Would think this ClosetMaid 1 in. White Wall Clip Set for Ventilated Wire Shelving-7546 - The Home Depot wire closet shelf clip would work.

Wow, didn't realize that rod was 5/8". Robust for the job it has to do is an understatement. Then, so far I vote for the Terry clips.

Try McMaster Carr. Look under tool clips. I see several that match what your looking for.

Oops, intended to type 5/16" rod....sorry about that.

Those shelf clips were just too tight for easy/quick kick-stand use.

JeffAZ, You said that you'd MacGiver it to work. Well this is how to do just that.

First buy the larger plastic clip from post #26. Yes it is for a larger diameter rod but that should make it much stronger and therefore should outlast your motor home. Now just take some plastic tape and wrap it around the rod until it is large enough easily fit into the larger clip. That's an easy fix.

You might find a piece of plastic tubing that would work to slightly increase the diameter of your 1/4" rod so it will work. Just the right sized clear plastic tube heated up in boiling water to soften it then just slip it over the rod.

A better and even more permanent fix would be to use a couple of different sized heat shrink tubing and layer it until the rod is of sufficient size to easily clip in and out. That shrink tubing is stronger than plastic tape and it won't unravel either. Just slip a piece at the spot and heat it. Do another layer until it's fat enough to work.

That's three ways to make it work. I think the best would be the shrink tubing. If applied properly it won't slip. Maybe even a bit of silicone under the first piece of tubing would permanently hold it.

Here's something that I did with the shrink tubing and it work very well.

I wanted to use some flexible rubber hoses to allow easier checking and fill my tire pressure on the inner rear tires. The flexible hoses can be covered with a woven steel mesh which makes them much less able to wear but they are still (IMHO) to flexible. I used two different sizes of heat shrink tubing and layered it. Now the hose is less flexible so it can't flop around as we travel. That fact alone will almost assure that those hoses won't break from constant movement.

Looking at your picture I think if you pick up one of these bolt type locks you can use just the small piece that the bolt slides in. Everbilt 2-1/2 in. Zinc-Plated Barrel Bolt-15142 - The Home Depot Just turn the small piece side ways and drop the part of your rod that is angled down into it and the should work just fine.
