I finally found direct replacement lenses: Bargman 34-59-010 Red lens and Peterson V2549-15A Amber lens. Both were a good snap on and tight fit but I added a bit of silicon on the bottom edge just to be sure they stay. Found them at local PPL store in Houston. BTW they have great online parts service. Pic attached of one I removed today. For some reason the red lenses have not been a problem - yet. Next time on roof check yours. If you see a lot of cracking in lens as shown in the pic - start looking for replacements.

For those still under warranty, just call or email Thor customer care. The amber lens cap fell off the top front (passenger side above windshield). They shipped several replacements to me, no charge.

LED Awning Lights
 
Hi group been awhile since I posted or asked a question. 16 KT front awning lights not working, this happened to me once before and it just needed to be reset, but for the life of me I can't remember where the reset is? Anyone know?

Chuck. We have replaced two of them and easily got them from dealer we bought from OEM. I don't know why you have had the problem finding OEM.

Hi
Wife and I are now owners of a pre owned 2017 Challenger 37 TB ! It had 5,045 miles, and still smelled new. It did have damage to the Wet Bay door, which the Dealership was in the process of replacing( door ordered).
We traded our Truck and 5th Wheel on the way from Western NC to Paducah KY for the International Quilt Show. We left the Dealership heading on to KY, about an hour and a half out, heard a loud noise out the left side, I looked in the mirror and see what I thought was the battery compartment door flapping in the breeze! I was coming up on a exit, so I took it and there was a Home Depot there. What had happened was the door skin had separated and folded back ! Upon further inspection I found the door skin is held in place by Double Stick Tape and a thin bead of some sort of adhesive. My wife bought stainless self drilling sheet metal screws, and I bent the panel back in place, and secured it with the screws.
I have posted this in a couple of places already on irv2, and Facebook, but want all coach owners to check your cargo/utility bay doors for signs of Debonding. One owner I have been in contact with had 9 doors with loose door Skins, that had to be reattached with a stronger bond.
Please check your doors ! ! !
We love our First Class A, Love the floor plan, it's perfect for our family.
Looking at a Good Sam Warranty, any suggestions for other plans ?Attachment 200877Attachment 200878

Wow! That debonding issue, ugh! So far no signs of it on our 2017 37LX. Hopefully I can always say that! Thanks for the heads up.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has done some remodeling. I am looking for new captains chairs, redue the couch, maybe even redue the shower. Also thinking of adding a third air conditioner (don't even know if I can) and the on demand water heater. Has? anyone done any of these things?

We took out love seat and put in recliners. Bought them through Rec Pro. Love them!

If like us you have 12.5 BTU ACs, why not upgrade to 15s or at least one up front, instead of a third? That is what I am tempted to do.

I was thinking about that as well.

Our top two changes are new theater seating, and 15k ac for front.

KC, did you experience a significant improvement with the 15k AC vs the 13.5? And can I ask, what was the upgrade cost?

I upgraded my front 13.5k to a 15K AC and the improvement is very noticeable.
With the 13.5K as a trade (basically a new unit) I paid $450 installed. I don't understand why this is not an option at purchase. In the southern half of the US it's basically a necessity.

Where did you have it done?
