Send it back to Crossroads. I would call Randy Mischler and request the repair center review the entire camper given the lengthy and not so minor repair list. I will say this is the first list of this type I've seen on a Zinger, they are pretty well built but lemons do happen (and I'm sorry you are the owner of one).

Randy at the service center is by far the best repair manager in the business.

Thanks. I have tried to talk to him but either he or i have miss phone calls from each other hopefully this week i will have better luck. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />

As for call this camper a lemon I would have to agree but the dealer and crossroads seem reluctant to agree with this finding.

My family and I love the floor plan and room of this model but we are starting to regret this purchase. I will say I am thankful for the temp fix they put on the camper that allowed us to go on our last trip. These trips mean everything to me, which I’m aware they mean a lot to everyone else with a camper, but when you spend months away from your family and facing another trip every moment counts. I don’t want my wife to have to deal with all of this if and when I leave and it would be even more difficult for me to handle things from a laptop with questionable connection.

Everyone says Randy is great, How do you get in touch with him? I sent an email to the service center a month ago about the melted power line into my 5er and I have not heard squat. Thats what I call non-service center!

In looking forRandy's phone #, I found these in old posts. Not sure which one is a correct phone # but you can certainly try both 888 226 7496 or 855-226-7496. The numbers are very similar so one is probably wrong but you can try both. Randy</span> is very good at getting problems resolved. Good luck to both ofyou.

We had a very similar situation with our first Sunset Trail. It just couldn't be repaired. After many attempts we came to the conclusion we had purchased a lemon. Our list was very similar to yours in length and severity.
Sadly I must say after several conversations with Crossroads personally and through our dealer the factory was unwilling to do anything further. After almost six months and five payments later our dealer finally stepped up and replaced our TT with a new one. I know the dealer didn't send it back to the factory because it still sits on their lot. I'm sure they did the best they could to remedy the problems and have put it on their used lot at a very discounted price.
It is our belief if we had continued to expect the factory to correct this we would still be waiting and would have a useless TT. We never got to use out TT for the six months we owned it.
We are extremely greatful to have a dealer who still believes the customer is their most important asset. Our new TT is great. We have taken it out four times since February. It just feels better even though it's the same make and model.
Good luck with your endeavor. Don't give up and hold everyone accountable.
