Thor Challenger Owners Unite!

If you had installed the winegard app then you could take the IMEI number from that. If you were logged in to the winegard. Iím guessing the O&M manuals might also have the IMEI printed out. However you can get the serial number of the winegard from the data sheet on the Thor owners resource website. Maybe you could then reach out to winegard and see if they have the IMEI number for the SIM card correlating to that serial number.
Or you might be able to activate the unit by subscribing to the winegard data plan do just enough time to locate the Coach.


I plugged a Verizon card into mine. It was only $10 a month to attach it to
My cell phone plan.

We have a 2014.5 - we replaced the OEM blinds with roller blinds that fit perfectly into the valence above the windows. Thereís a gap of an inch or so at the rear of the window that it doesnít cover, but otherwise works perfectly and is also easy to pull partway down while driving.

F53 Maintenance

Finding someone to work on the Ford F53 engine and chasse portion of the RV is a challenge. I live in Houston and there is not a Ford dealership in the entire Houston or Austin area that will work on my 2017 Challenger. I finally found a small place in the Woodlands (Woodlands Auto Care) that works on RV's. They have a lift area big enough for these big class A rigs.

Per owners manual the rear axel differential needed the oil changed at 24k miles if you tow in temps higher than 70 F. I needed that done. Plus coolant flush, brake fluid flush, check brake pads, new fan belt, etc. Normal maintenance. Costly!!! But at least there is comfort knowing things are in good shape.

Suspension Sway Bars and Shocks

Previously I had installed a Roadmaster steering stabilizer and Super Steer track bar on the rear. These items helped drivabilty some. But the the sway and rocking going around corners and hitting bumps just bothers me. Feels like it may tip over in turns. Plus the ride just feels harsh when hitting bumps. So I broke down and put the Roadmaster sway bars on the front and back. And I installed Komi shocks.

The sway bars are awesome! Should have done this long ago.

The Koni shocks seem to reduce some of the harshness. So better. Not great. But better.

PLEASE HELP!!
I understand that this site has been going on since 2013 and truthfully I don’t want to read 250+ pages. I need help. We recently purchased a 2012 Challenger DT .... she decided that we wanted new furniture. So the wife removed the couch and dinette much to my surprise. Now we have a huge empty space that is elevated /raised. I have not pulled the carpet but I’m guessing it’s a subfloor that the couch and dinette set on...Has anyone ran into the same situation? I appreciate any help before I file for divorce ... lol

If the area you are inquiring about is in a slide out then it is the slide floor. Typically constructed of 1 1/2" tubing and OSB decking making about a 2" rise.

On my 2013 DT we had a free standing table and chairs, not a dinette. Also the table was not next to the couch. Is yours different? I agree about the slide floor comment.

Mine has a 4 inch raised floor on the slide where the couch and dinette was that runs the total length of the slide. However it’s not straight across.... where the couch was it is 31”wide and where the dinette was it’s 46” wide. If I can figure out how to post a picture I will and it will help visualize....
