#75 Noticed a very small hole in screen near top center of our screen door. Discovered that when screen door is latched to door that screen touches window frame. Aluminum joint at top of window had sharp edges that eventually rubbed a hole in the screen. Less than sixty seconds with a file to smooth edges and colored exposed bare aluminum with a Sharpie and done. Just run your finger over all the screw heads and joint at top to be sure you don't have the same problem.

Our very early 2015 has it not sure about 14.5.
Look under bed platform on back side of breaker and fuse panels. If you see lots of wire and relays attached to a one foot square circuit board - then you are just missing the remote. No board - no rapid camp Can post pic if needed.

Follow up with one more step. Studied hole and decided it needed something to keep cut ends of two screen threads from allowing hole to get bigger. Super glue seemed to be best - one BB size dab and now I am done. You have to look real hard to see repair.

I have the same thing on my 20141/2.Thor said it is out of warranty and they will not repair. Get it done now or they will dump you. It is put together backwards from factory. Period

ours is the same. It is put together at the factory backwards.Mine is the same year and model as yours and just purchased it in 12/30/15. Thor said it was out of warranty and it was my problem. BLACK WATER COMES OUT OF SMALL VALVE AND GRAY OUT OF LARGE VALVE.Yes it does plug. If you hook up the blank tank flush it comes out small valve. Thanks Thor.

Frank, I added the outlets to give me power on the drivers side. I run my electric grill from there, mainly because the utility outlet above the fresh water tank compartment is on the same breaker as the GFCI outlets in the kitchen and bathroom. I was always tripping the breaker.

How would someone not notice and deal with this during the first year of ownership (ie warranty)?

#76 Have been cleaning air conditioner filters on a pretty regular basis now for over 12 months of traveling. One - they are somewhat fragile and tear easily. Two - removing washing and waiting for them to dry very time consuming and meant going without filter if air really needed. Simple - I needed more filters and boy are they expensive. My solution "FROST KING Air Conditioner Filter 15x 24x 1/4" Washable Polyurethane Foam F1524" on Ebay for under four bucks and free shipping. One of these will make three filters. Don't try to make four - they will be to narrow. Hope everyone is staying nice and warm.

what side is your small drain valve

PattyP 01-12-2016 04:58 PM

Did you buy it used and that is why it is out of warranty already? Cuz we just bought ours and it's used, so we are out of warranty and had to buy extended warranty.

Looked where you said. We have an enclosed box made of the same wood as the bed frame covering the back side behind the breakers and fuses. Can't easily see what is inside. No visible circuit board outside that box.
