Below the answer from Thor:
« I am not sure where the tire pressure stickers for Cruise America came from. I would assume they place the stickers on the coach themselves. All our tire pressure information comes from the chassis manufacture. You would need to reach out to them directly for further concerns. »
But only the chassis and not the RV.
I guess I will have to do the math ! Thanks Iamichabod for the documents!

How many former CA/EL Monte motorhome buyers shelter them? I am seeking the best way, for the least amount of money, to protect a motorhome from the elements. I live in Florida on an acre of property that has an RV station with 30 amp electric, water, and sewer connections. I am thinking a concrete slab with a permanent covering. Something like you see over some driveways. Believe that buying or building a barn/garage may be too much money. Do most of you have some sort of shelter for your motorhome or do you just leave it out in the elements? An RV pull over cover could be an alternative. Just don't know.

Just got back from a 350mi trip to see some family, cat approved. If I can't seem to sell it, I might as well enjoy it (until it does sell).

Hi all
New here but not a new guy
Now my 14 rig...

Short version
I bought a Cruise America Thor 19g about 5 years ago
Sold it about 12 minutes before the lock down
(was getting a newer rig, same model)
Well we know how that worked...
So, i spent the lock down searching in person and on line
EVERYTHING, Class A, B, C, Truck Slide Ins, Trailers
Ready made, self build the whole gamit

So: I repurchased the exact same model rig i sold pre lock down
Thor Majestic 19g with 120,000 miles direct from Cruise America

For my now 8 yo daughter and I it is perfect
I bought the 5 year 100,000 power train warrenty
Ford E350, single rear, 2wd

I added solar and about to put in new shocks, rear sumos and rear sway
Oh, and I put in the PepWave Cell /WiFi Router and Antenna (allows me to work remote with ease)

But most of all i have added MILES to the odometer, since purchase June 19, 2021 and 25 nites and another 20 days day camping

Turn key out the door road ready with warrenty and upgrades under $50k
IMHO that is a good value

BW

yes will post pics when i find that part

all the best in '22 to ya'll

Howdy all Former Rental Owners!

I finally installed my Christmas present... Running boards, great addition as I get older. DeeZee 39" diamond plate running boards, about $230 from Amazon. Not too hard to install, cause I was able to do it, but kinda hard too, you gotta drill 2 holes in the frame for the brackets on each side, as well as, drilling in the pinch welds under the door and in the wheel well. I broke 2 of the DeeZee sheetmetal screws as I was ratchetting them into the frame, gave up trying to drill them out, figured out I could use 2 existing holes (passenger side) and bought bolts/nuts/washers and used them instead.

Drilled driver's side carefully, WATCH OUT FOR THE BRAKE LINE AND GAS LINE, and then I used the purchased nuts and bolts, instead of the mfg's large sheet metal screws again. Measured and marked several times before drilling, lined everything before tightening them up with blue lock-tight, that I decided to add as precaution.

Life is so much nicer getting in and out of the cab, and I have mud flaps now, cause you know how stuff sprays up on the front edge of the coach.

No, I didn't see that model when I searched for what would fit a 2011 E-350/450. The model I ordered was the DeeZEE DZ2045 which lists the dimensions as 40x11x8. The one you found is the DZ1034 with dimensions 40x17x8... so a little taller mud flap??? and a little more $. Other than that I'm not sure the differences.

When I get some time, I'll post some pics of the brackets, I didn't take any during the install cause I didn't want to get my phone dirty cause I had lock-tite all over my hands...lol

OK thanks for coming back with that,I see the one that I referenced, the DZ1034,looks like it would be wider, length 40'' x width 17''x 8''height.

I am looking forward to the pictures of the brackets and your great write up and handy work.

Hello my fellow RV'ers. I just wanted to share a some info and a good experience. On our maiden journey last March we lost the external vent cover for our range. After months of trying to locate a replacement I was poking around on Thor's website and found this https://www.thormotorcoach.com/owners/need-parts-help/.

I filled out the form and within a few days I received an email that they did in fact have the part I needed. Needless to say I was pretty happy. The following day a customer service rep contacted me to complete the purchase of my part. She was very friendly and mentioned that Thor is now selling directly to the public and has quite a few parts on hand. What I found neat was that they still had the build sheet for my Thor Majestic and knew exactly what parts were on it. Over all was very pleased with the whole transaction and received the exact part I needed rather quickly.

So if you need a coach part that you cant find elsewhere they may just have it. Hope this helps someone out there for us former CA rental owners [emoticon]
