WHY!!!
Same with the trim moulding on the bottom of my large slide. The factory workers have heavy duty power tools and don't know how to control them. If their tools have a breakaway torque setting they don't know how to use it. bottom line is that sloppy work results in broken screws.

The best screws are made in Germany, Spax brand. Our local Home Depot carries them or get them on the internet. Way better than the factory screws most likely made in China.

I found 4-6 headless screws on my PDI as well, shows this is not a uncommon problem. Hope a rep from Thor gets wind of these issues and communicates them to factory. ( I know, not likely).

Other than odor........is there a down fall to emptying your black tank sooner than later? Can I let it sit for a week(or longer) if need to and what's my risk? Anything I must do then before dumping to "loosen" up if you will? Thanks for the advice

I have been in parks recently that do not have sewer at the site. A honey wagon comes around weekly. No problem with this, but I do use an enzyme to help break it down and cut the smell. When I do get to a full service site, I empty the tank and then use the flush hose to fill it again and continue with this until it is clear..... I added a 90 degree clear elbow on the black/grey outlet.
You can also add a lot of ice cubes to your tank just before a road trip. It scours the bottom of the tank.

Ice cubes.... Great idea! Should tank be higher level or maybe drive around a bit before dumping.....? Trying to loosen up all the debris!

We empty the ice cubes in while we are traveling between locations. It is done on an empty black tank just before we depart. Once we arrive we do another good flush after we hook up to the water/sewer connections.

I need help finding a fuse on my 2014 Palazzo 36.1. My 12v power outlets in the cockpit are not working. I want to check the fuse, but can't find one with a label that seems right. I checked the panel to the foot of the bed and one in the outside compartment under the driver's window, but nothing looks right. Does anyone know where the correct fuse is?
