I suggest you join the Atlas Facebook group. It is much more active with more members.


As for TPMS.

Same issue - Atlas 2021 - Hard to believe there is no TPMS installed.
Thanks for the information on the TST 507 tpms - I will check it out.

Atlas head bangers

Hi, After hitting my head on the corners of two cabinets multiple times, I have found a very nice solution. The cabinet immediately to the right of the main door had nailed me multiple times and the lower edge of the overhead cabinet going into the driver's cabin from the coach has nailed me several times. Both edges are quite sharp and I have scabs on my head from both.

Bought this item from Amazon for $16 and spent 15 minutes cutting it to size and installing.

Here is what the cabinet edges look like now.
Best $16 I've spent!

If you only knew how many times my wife and I have said "%&$#@*&^ EDGES!!!!!"

My wife has a permanent crease in her forehead from the one over the cab.

Zach, I too have a 2019 Atlas. Overall, I love it, but am pretty surprised by some of the little things they left out which would be very easy for them to fix. This is definitely one of them! Good luck fixing this.
p.s. I've spent the last 6 months upgrading all sorts of stuff in my Atlas. So if you have any questions, chances are I've dealt with it. Upgraded the batteries to Lithium, added more solar panels, upgraded the solar charge controller, etc. Currently looking for a good solution for the very annoying problem of how long it takes the water to heat up because the on-demand water heater seems to take forever to warm up the water and wastes a gallon of water just to warm up. Will post once I find a good solution.
Good luck

The only mods so far we have done is to remove the table mounts on the floor and instead use a collapsible aluminum table the easily stores in the outer cabinet.

Looking to upgrade to lithium maybe next year and probably will add a folding aluminum table that attaches to the side wall where the televator is so when we stop for lunch we can fold up the table and sit on the sofa and eat comfortably.

Please post photos when you do the tables. I'm very interested in same but want to see what it looks like.
