I've about had it with the lack of I'm getting on warranty service. I bought my Zinger new in April 2010. When I had it in for service at the end of April 2011, I told the guy that my tires were dryrotting. It's a one year old tire, and the dry rot was NOT minor.



He filled out a claim form, and told me that the tires were not safe for travel. I've been calling every 2 - 3 weeks since then to check status.



At present, the dealer claims to be getting the runaround. Crossroads says it's the tire manufacturer's issue. The manufacturer says Crossroads installed tires that had been in their warehouse for too long.



Either way, we're coming up on September. I haven't been camping once this year. I'm tired of this.



I can't believe that Crossroads is allowing this to occur. It's severely damaged my opinion of them at this point.



Hopefully someone at the manufacturer monitors these boards.

Call crossroads and ask for Randy Mishler and explain your tire problem. Could be your dealer is giving you a hard time.

I'll give that a shot tomorrow. I've never been able to get to a person when I call there.

Agree, #1 call Randy. #2 what is the date code that is on the tires? That will tell you their age, you might google 'tire date code' to find out how to read the code. #3 Crossroads doesn't have a tire warehouse, the get the tires already mounted on the wheels. Now if the tire manufacturer had old tires in his warehouse and then shipped them out, seems like it is their problem. Every warranty period begins from time of end user purchase anyway, so it really doesn't matter where the tires sat too long (if that is really what the date code reveals), the tire manufacturer is responsible.

I cannot agree more with everyone! You need to talk to Randy or at least someone at crossroads. Dealers have been known to stretch the truth about Crossroads not getting back to them when they have not even contacted them with the issue( I know this from experience). Randy will always make it right to the best of his ability.

I had the same b.s story from Camping World with my R-Vision trailer back in 2006, not for a tire issue but fora slide issue. Finally after 3 weeks of calling every other day, I asked the dealer why am I being held hostage over bureaucratic red tape? They agreed performed the service and I went on my way.

I think I can put my two cents in here since my first retirement was from a major tire manufacture, the warranty on the tire is not serviced by crossroads, it's the same as if you bought a new car, the car manufacture does not warranty the tire, all tires are warranteed by the manufacture and it's handled by the selling dealer, Crossroads has taken care of tire issues that were mostly connected to bad axels, I would assume when the axels were bad and crossroads replaced the tire there was a way that lipperet paid crossroads for the tire, but if crossroads does warranty your tire it's because they want to, they are not obligated to legally service a tire, I have gone thru some of the largest tire recalls in the country and yes I had people who tried to sue over what they thought they should get and I am happy to say that they all got nothing more that the original offer, your best bet is to simply find the distributor of the tire, it's on your warranty card, call them, they will most probably want you to get the serial numbers off the tires and to send them some pics, they will in turn send you 5 tires and you will get return material tags to send the old ones back, they usually have a flat rate they pay to have the tires mounted and balanced, if your not going to keep the tires, you can trade with the dealer, he will most likeley see them for non use farm equipment, when you get a trade in price you can pay the difference and get whatever you like...I know it seems alot of run around, but I can assure you this works...

I recently had my first MAJOR issue with my Zinger 30KB and with the warranty department. We are from Texas and while traveling this summer through New York, we had a leaf spring break while traveling down the highway....thankfully everyone is ok! I called my local dealership in Texas which put me in contact with the Corporate office. They then got me in touch with the actual manufacturer of the leaf spring. 2 days later, the leaf spring arrived in New York where we were staying in a hotel and was replaced right there in the parking lot. Not a penny was spent, everything was taken care of by Crossroads! Sometimes I think it IS always better to call Crossroads versus the local dealership prior to getting service completed. It is sad that we must do this, but everything worked out.

Follow up....

Randy did his best to help, but to no avail. To be fair, the tires are warranteed by the manufacturer, Duro. Duro's customer service is non-existent. They more or less told me to pound sand.

The tire warranty is apparently two years from the date of TIRE MANUFACTURE. So my 2010 trailer, which was built in July of 2009, has tires on it that were manufactured earlier in 2009. Which means the first year of warranty was up before I ever bought the trailer. An absolute joke.

So, Randy tried to get Crossroads to help me out on purchasing new tires, but the company wouldn't agree to it. He tried, I'll give him that.

I am frustrated. It reflects quite poorly on Crossroads that they use tires that won't even last a year from purchase. While I love my trailer, I cannot feel good about recommending the brand due to the stock tires they use. It makes me wonder what else they went cheap on, and what I'll be fixing next.

I lost an entire season of camping to this tire issue, and now I have to cover the cost of replacement tires.
