Picnic Table for Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome

Picnic Table for Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome

There is no picnic table for Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome.  But a picnic table is important, so choose the right RV parks.

Space is very limited in any RV, so there is no room to haul around a picnic table.  But having a place to eat and relax outside is very important.  That’s the job of the RV park.

A lot of RV park developers put wooden picnic tables out.  It doesn’t take long for the wood to disintegrate and leave the table all but useless.

Have a list of questions for an RV park.  High on that list is: “Does the site have a picnic table?  What is it made of?”  Choose a campground with a metal or plastic picnic table.  That way, it won’t be falling apart, and you can move it to be adjacent to the exterior TV and speakers, as shown in this photo.

This gives you the perfect picnic table for Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome.

Lighting in 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome

Lighting in 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome is outstanding.  There are twenty-four (24) lights in the INTERIOR of the 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 and thirty-four (34) lights on the EXTERIOR.

Not to be rude, but the reality is that a lot of RVs have dim lighting.  You could do surgery in this 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome.  And you have 14 different On/Off switches to enable you to use the lighting where, when, and how you want to use it.

Water in Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome

Water in Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome

All RVs are not created equal when it comes to WATER.

2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome City Water Connector

All campgrounds are not created equal when it comes to WATER.  Choose campgrounds with above-ground water outlets that are easy for anyone to use.  I’m 75 and disabled.  I can’t operate a spigot located down in the ground.  When I fall down, I can’t get up, so I have to use a loud siren that I wear around my neck to summon help.

The City Water Connector shown above is perfect.

2018 Thor ACE 30.4-2-way Water Hose Valve
2018 Thor ACE 30.4-2-way Water Hose Valve

I connect my 2-Way Water Hose Valve to the city water spigot.  It is equipped with a hard rubber connector that makes it easy for anyone to connect and disconnect it.  Then I connect my hoses.  I have the option of no water flow (shown here), water from either valve, or water from both valves.  Just turn the black knob(s) to the ON position.  This is a special addition to this 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome.

This Thor ACE 30.4 RV has a large capacity Fresh Water Tank that you fill with a white sanitary garden hose with a special filter to keep contaminants out.  It has a 50-gallon capacity.  Most RVs do not come with the hose, and if they do, don’t use them.

2018 Thor ACE 30.4 WATER Filter
2018 Thor ACE 30.4 WATER Filter

This RV comes with an absolutely sanitary hose that has never been used for dirty work.  And the Water Filter is essential.  It stops contaminants from the city water connection from entering your Fresh Water supply.  I’ve installed this on both of your hoses, so you don’t have to worry about a thing except navigating city streets in an 18,000-pound house on wheels.

To fill the Fresh Water Tank, just connect your white sanitary hose to the city water spigot, turn it on, and put the end of the hose with the filter into the Fresh Water Tank Fill.  If water starts to run out, you’ve filled it to 50-gallons, and it’s time to retract the hose, shut off the City Water Spigot, and close the cap on the Fresh Water Tank Fill.  This water inlet is comfortably positioned about chest-high on the right rear of the motorcoach, so it is much easier to use than those in other RVs.  Other RV manufacturers seem to have used Simone Biles to do their design and have neglected the needs of normal people.  Go Thor!

2018 Thor Ace 30.4 Motorhome Camco Water Tank Filler with Shut-Off Valve

This 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 also has a Camco Water Tank Filler with Shut-Off Valve.  It allows you to fill your Fresh Water Tank in a fraction of the time of those without this attachment.  The Filler minimizes line back flow while filling at or near full pressure.  Screw the Camco Filler onto your hose, and insert the Water Tank Filler, long side up, into the Fresh Water Tank Fill, and fill ‘er up.

2018 Thor Ace 30.4 Motor Home Hookup Connections do not require acrobatics. Water, Electric, and Cable TV

Then connect the hose with its filter to the City Water Connection located next to the 30-Amp power connection and the Cable TV connection.  Turn the City Water Spigot on high, and this allows your motorhome to use the city water for all your needs.  Zillions of gallons of Fresh Water if needed.  This saves the water in your Fresh Water Tank for times when you do not have a city water connection available.

2018 Thor Ace 30.4 BASEMENT Bay 8 – Sewer hookups for Black Water and Gray Water Dump. Outdoor Shower.

This Thor ACE 30.4 RV has a 47-gallon Gray Water Tank.  This is the wastewater from the sinks and shower.  A 47-gallon tank minimizes your tank dumping duties.  It dumps by pulling the Gray Valve.

This Thor ACE 30.4 RV has a 40-gallon Black Water Tank.  This is the yucky liquid with stuff floating in it.  A 40-gallon tank minimizes your sewer duties.  It dumps by pulling the Black Valve.

This Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome has an Exterior Shower.  You may not be into showering naked outside your RV in a campground.  The External Shower gives you a way to wash up while outside.  It should also be used with HOT HOT water to clean your sewer hose following Black Water dumping.  It’s located in the same Bay as the sewer equipment and connections.

Here is an extremely comprehensive Guide to the Water System in the 2019 Thor Ace 30.4 Motorhome.

Exterior of the 2018 Thor ACE 30.4

The Exterior of the 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 is just plain beautiful.  Classy Class A motorhome.

When you see RVs with faded stripes and an unattractive exterior, they didn’t have FULL BODY PAINT as does the 2018 Thor A.C.E. 30.4  No peeling or cracking.  Just beauty.

This exterior design is called Brandywine.  You can call it home.  Grab it fast!  It looks almost new at a fraction of the price.

Windows are Special in 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome

Windows are Special in 2018 Thor Ace 30.4 Motorhome

Have you thought much about the windows when shopping for an RV?

You should.

Do you like fresh air?  The 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 gives you fresh air!  Just turn the crank on the windows.  Screens have been installed on every window.

Do you like the idea of being confined to a big box with no openings?  Not for me!  The 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 has seven (7) windows that open.  Pro-health, anti-claustrophobia!

The frameless windows simply look great, too.  Tinted glass that sits flush with the sides of the motorcoach.

Get real, honest-to-goodness functioning windows with your 2018 Thor ACE 30.4.

AND, the Bedroom Window on the Driver’s Side provides an Emergency Exit.  There is a step up to make this easily accessed.  A red handle shows you what to pull.  The Emergency Exit information explains everything.  The window is 24″ x 32″ so it accommodates all sizes.

    2018 Thor ACE 30.4 SONY 50-Inch HDTV Smart TV is a major upgrade. Phenomenal picture. BIG screen. SONY!

114-inches of TV in Thor ACE 30.4 Motorhome

Wouldn’t it be cool to have a 119-inch high-definition BIG screen TV?

Having three BIG screen TVs is pretty cool, too.  119-inches.

This 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Class A Motorhome is special with its TVs.  It has two 32-inch TVs and one 50-inch SONY Smart HDTV in the Living Room.  One of the 32-inch LED TVs is the focal point of the camping side exterior of the RV32-inch LED TV Manual.  The other 32-inch Sharp Smart HDTV is in your Bedroom.

The SONY and Sharp TVs are significantly higher in quality to the Axxera TVs that come from the factory.

A roof-mounted Winegard Rayzar Z1 Antenna gives great reception from local stations.

This 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 Class A Motorhome also has a SONY DVD Player wired to the 50-inch SONY TV.

Children, grandchildren, neighbors, and strangers will all be impressed with you and your outdoor entertainment system.  Movie night under the stars at your place!

When I first bought a motorhome, I was concerned with how much I would have to spend to get a satellite for TV service.  I worried needlessly.  Unless you are a TV junkie who can’t live without specific cable TV shows, the Winegard Rayzar Z1 Antenna delivers all the main channels to you for free.  Most RV Parks have free cable.  This 2018 Thor ACE 30.4 has three TVs, so I keep two of them connected to the Winegard Rayzar Z1 Antenna, and the other is connected to the RV Park’s cable service.  The 55-inch SONY HDTV is connected to a SONY HDTV DVD Player, and I am an Amazon Prime member, so I get tons of movies for my annual fee as well as free delivery on whatever I order.

Winegard Rayzar Z1 Antenna

With the antenna, you don’t get the handy dandy list of channels and shows on screen.  So, my computer has TV Guide — free, and it gets the job done.

Here’s a video with some pointers on the antenna and DVD:
