Thunar hangs when entering IP address to access NFS mount

Thunar 1.6.4.-2 (manjaro repository)
If I start entering the IP address of a machine to access it's NFS share, Thunar beings to hang for a good 10 seconds or more, then becomes responsive but as soon as I start typing again it hangs again as well. If I keep waiting I can end up typing everything and accessing the NFS share and it all works as it should.
Youre going to need to have to be able to access an NFS share essentially. I only have instructions for the client, install autofs, I have version 5.1.0-2 and edit the /etc/autofs/auto.master file to only include "/net -hosts --timeout=60" without "". Start autofs and rpcbind with commands "systemctl start autofs" and "systemctl start rpcbind" without "" of course. Open up thunar, type /net followed by the IP of the system that has the NFS share and you should see that thunar will freeze/hang. If I use nemo file manager I do not get any freezing or hanging so that is how I have narrowed it down to Thunar.
