Thanks, have been putting off doing the same thing. Glad it is not that tough of a job. I had the antenna laying on the dash from the time I left the dealership, worked great going south. LOL :rofl:

The way I tackled this problem was, I bought some 1/2" foam insulation board, cut them to fit inside the register, used silver reflective heat tape to cover the foam inserts, then punched some small holes (just enough) to regulate the bathroom and the bedroom. Seems to work just fine, but your solution probably looks nicer.

I was able to order several registers with dampers online for about $12 each -- work great. Just traded my 2008 Challenger 376 for a NEW 2013 Thor Damon Challenger 37KT -- pick it up next week.

Handyman can you tell the where you got and specifics on the register/dampers? I'd like to look at this also.

Thanks in advance.

bigben, I've been looking at a few here: Tweetys.com - RV Parts & Accessories - RV Hitches - Registers

I want to replace the vent in the bathroom with a dampered vent.

Just pull the tab outward on the black strap. It's a snug fit but it should release without breaking.

Reading all the threads I haven't "fingered" out why the recall on the extinguisher Does anyone know why? tks/Mikey

I just checked and they are still available. Exact replacement for the ones in my Challenger -- I just moved them to a 2013 Challenger.

As I remember it was a problem with the trigger/valve. If you stopped squeezing the trigger before the cylinder was empty and tried to do it again there was a good chance the mechanism would fail. Not good if you thought fire was out and it popped back up.

I found mine in a local Ace Hardware Store.

Just got our new one. The whole process was pretty easy. New one looks jist like the old one and fits in the same holder.

This is the same texture as the stuff used on your entry steps. Took maybe ten to fifteen minutes per side to clean surface and apply tape nice and straight. Now seal pulls out as it should every time. My finger is pointing at the new 3M tape and the seal is on the left.

Thanks for this Mod. I will give this try.

Does the 2016 Challenger have a pure sine wave inverter?
 
Watching a video by Total Value RV from Elkhart, Indiana the narrator said that the 2016 Thor Challenger model they just got in has a "pure sine inverter". Even if he said "pro sine inverter", the Xantrex "pro sine inverter" is a pure sine wave inverter. I would truly like to know if Thor upgraded to a 1800 watt pure sine inverter from the 2015s 1800 watt Xantrex pro-XM modified sine wave inverter.

Replaced Bathroom Heater Vent
 
2 Attachment(s)
I was getting too much air out of the heater vent in the bathroom so I replaced it with a dampered vent made by Winnebago.

It's the same size as the one installed by Thor and it uses the same screw holes.
