There are actually 2 grey tanks and 1 black tank. Mid gray tank is for the washing machine only. Back grey tank is for shower and sinks, both kitchen and bathroom. Black tank for the toilet. All piping is piped to the black tank vent. Thor identified the issue and has told me how to resolve it. I have not yet been able to get the MH into a repair facility yet to resolve this. This is on the 37KT 2014.5.

I have a 2014.5 37KT and don;t have that problem. sure wish I could send some water to that mid-gray other than washing machine though.

rubber slide adhesive
 
I'm looking on some input on a good adhesive for my rubber seals on my 2014 Challenger 37KT . It is peeling off the outside coach wall. It is the flat seal

Thanks

We ordered a 2015 Challenger 37KT and have owned it for about 6 weeks. We had a few minor issues with it but I was able to make all of the repairs myself. This is the 3rd Thor motorhome that we've owned and the build quality on this one is the best! We love the floor plan and we're looking forward to snowbirding in it this winter!

Having a warranty is a wonderful thing but entrusting a repair to a shop other than the factory is another. I had my GT at the factory towards the end of the warranty period for a repair that a local CW created. While there, they went through it from bumper to bumper.

On the way home from that trip the entry step motor failed! I went to AutoZone, bought a new motor, installed it in 15 minutes myself. Had I taken it to CW it would have been there one or two weeks.

My efforts to convince DW that we NEED a new and larger coach and specifically the 37KT just went two steps backwards. Yesterday we went to see one at Katy TX Camping World. Big mistake. I have never seen new one in such bad shape. I understand dealers not wanting to fix things until they have a sale - but hood open 4 -5 inches on one side. Was afraid to even touch it. Six inch wide maybe 12 ft long top trim from rear slide laying on floor so you could not test passenger seat or couch, more very loose, i mean falling off, trim on same slide, dented convection and more. Now DW thinks all Thor 37KT's will be like that. Just a couple hours of tech time and they probably would have had a sale yesterday.

We love that floorplan too. Congrats on the new coach.

I see a lot of posts' on the slide-outs problems on the Palazzo. Does the new Challenger use the same slide mechanism and is there any problems?

DGShaffer 10-02-2014 07:47 AM

The problem on the Palazzo was with the full wall slide. I have had my three slides in and out at least 100 times since I bought my Challenger 37DT.

I had issues with my slides. Went to Thor service center for corrective action. The newer Challengers should be ok.

Same as Bob. Took my Challenger to the factory to have the slide mechanisms fixed, and they did a great job, no problems at all, driven 7000 miles since. The service center seems to work with the "Just Fix It" attitude, and we are very happy with our results.

In the newer models they reinforced the slide better (changes in sides and bottom plates vs prior years) - as last poster said the full wall slides are the main issue. On the 37Kt the back (large) slide is actually a cable slide. The front 2 slides with the mechanism that caused issue are relatively small and light in comparison.

DGShaffer 10-03-2014 06:08 AM

I was looking at the underneath of one of the slides and noticed that the glide plate was installed to the wrong side of the mark made in the factory and the roller was rolling on the wood and not the metal glide plate. I made and installed one in the right location. You can see the wear marks being made on the old one to the left of the one I installed
