Are they aimed properly? My Outlaw had them focused at about 6 feet so a proper adjustment did wonders!

If you do go HID, get a quality kit. The Chinese ones will leave you in the dark!

Hey Don,

How far out did you adjust your headlights? I rarely drive at night and I noticed this weekend that my low beams are focused way too close in. I felt like I needed mid beams between my low and high beams.

I just kept going up until I was happy. No one flashed their lights at me so I figured I was good

Hey fellow Challenger owners, what are your thoughts of forming a Thor Motor oach Owners' Club? The diesel coach owners' have a club, so I'm trying to start an all inclusive club that benifits all Thor owners. I would love to see my fellow Challenger owners interested. I have two threads , 1. TMCOC flyer, and TMCOC Membership drive. Check them out.

If you go on line and look up headlight aiming it shows how to aim them.

Hey Challenger owners, have you looked at the post in the Palazzo owners thread where Gary compiled everyone's name, and model they have. If you would care to PM me your Challenger Model and I will compile and post a list like Gary did for the Palazzo's.

DGShaffer 10-08-2013 01:36 PM

I noticed that and was curious what the reasoning behind it was.

Hopefully one of you can help with this one. Three weeks ago I parked my MH and left the parking lights on and forgot to hit the disconnect switch. The batteries were completely drained.

Everything came back ok except for the awning? I doesn't make a sound when I hit the switch in either direction. Could this be related to something needing to be reset?

Don, I did some research this morning. If we have 120v awning, it might be a tripped breaker. I don't think we do because the awning will operate without being plugged in or on shore power. The only other thing I found was it might have a blown fuse. These are all things you've probably looked at already. I read a post where someone followed the wire back, unplugged it from a junction box and applied another 12v source to retract a failed awning. That might narrow down the issue. Let me know if you figure it out. My initial guess is its a blown fuse, either in the panel or inline with the circuit somewhere. Good luck.

I reset all the breakers and checked all the fuses. I can't find the controller. Any ideas on where to find it?

camaromance 10-13-2013 11:06 AM

It might be behind the switch. I'll look later.

DGShaffer 10-13-2013 06:29 PM

Mine isn't so I'll have to keep looking. I'll call Thor tomorrow and let you know how I make out. Thanks for taking the time to jump in!

camaromance 10-13-2013 11:06 PM

Mine wasn't either. I followed the wire run to the drivers side and lost it in a big conduit. I'm sure it's something simple. It's not like the motor is just going to quit working because the battery ran down. I wonder if there is a reset on the motor?

Don't feel bad. I always forget to turn my parking lights off, too. Mine is always plugged in somewhere or the genset is running.

It was three weeks since the Hershey show and that's when I put it away. I can't remember but something odd must have happened. When I went to pick it up, the first thing I noticed were that my steps were still deployed. Then I noticed the door was unlocked, then that the key was in the ignition, then that the battery was stone dead!

Not like me, I'm a creature of habit and doing things in succession to ensure that every step is completed.
