Seam Lines

I have a 2013 Thor ACE and have noticed that I have a number of very dark seam lines on the drivers side of the body. There run Vertically about every 4 feet and I have talked to Thor about it. The lines are very pronounced and looks like crap. Have any others had the same problem and has the manufacturer done anything about it. They gave a lame excuse that it is due to temp changes and the metal ribbing heats up at a different rate that the gel coat. Not sure how true that is since it is there all day long

It is a mistake to allow any mechanical object to realize that you are in a hurry.

Open in a post reply....

On the top above where I am typing, click on the paper clip.

Then click in the new window on "Browse"

Find the picture on your computer, click on it, then hit "open"

You should see the location of the picture now in the browse window.

Next click "upload", just below the browse options.

Now wait, and watch as the pic uploads, when its done, it just goes away, no notice that it completed.

At the bottom of that window you can now close it.

You will not see the pic in your post reply window, but if you waited for the upload to complete, if you scroll down you will see a line with the pic address showing.

Click "submit reply", and the pic should appear in your reply.
