Thor Four Winds Class C

I'm looking at buying a used Thor Four Winds 2014 31E Class C that has only 5k miles on it. How can I get in touch with other Thor Class C owners?

Happy with our 31W. We downsized from a 40' Monaco class A. Getting used to the smaller rig isn't a tough as I thought it would be.

We had a 2014 31F and had very few problems. Loved RVING so much we sold it and bought a 2016 Challenger, of which , after 2 1/2 months at CW, we are still waiting on them to start on the warranty repairs. Lots of confusion and miscommunication going on.

The water heater on my Chateau 31W (class c) failed on the second outing. Camp World said 4 weeks to schedule a repair. Lynn Duggan at Thor Warranty Service said ". Go get it fixed, pay for it, and we will reimburse you." That was October 2015--i am still waiting after 6 phone calls to say where is my money ( $453 ).

This unit has a 120 volt A/C only fridge, with an inverter, the inverter clunks when it starts, the two 27 series 12 volt batteries only power the fridge for 3.5 hours. The inverter manufacturer says that everything is OK, do not expect more than 3.5 hours

Yep- I've decided against this unit after reading the horror stories. Back to looking at Class A's.

Our 2014 used a/c or gas. We had no issues when dry camping.

You will have similar problems with most A's in that size range. The refrigerator problem traces back to battery capacity. IF all you get is 2 frame mounted batteries under the step you are screwed with a residential refer. The rest is unfortunately typical of the current state of the business.

I think it depends on what you are doing. I have a residential fridge and just two batteries. I have found them to be sufficient for my needs.

On the flip side, if you don't dutifully maintain your LP fridge, it's a very common source of RV fires. Several of my friends have had their RV burn to the ground due to LP fridge fires.

The two battery with a residential fridge setup is fine if one does not boon dock or at least not much. There are multiple threads about how to power manage to get it to work. That is why it is an automatic no sale for a lot of us. It is just one of the gotcha's that people need to be aware of so they can evaluate it against their needs not mine or yours.
