Hello there,

New User Charlie W.here just checking in. I was curious if there were enough people on here with a Crossroads Hill Country custom RV's to warrant a separate discussion topic ? These are pretty much identical to the Sunset Trail line, but have been customized with a Texas theme. I just purchased an HCT 32RL and I'm sure I will have lots of questions and comments.

Good to be here !
I grew up in motorhomes and Rv's, but have never owned one myself, so any advice is appreciated.

Charlie W.

Welcome Charlie from a fellow Texan. The Hill Country units are mainly just here in Texas so not many on here. Let me also invite you to the Texas Rally we are having next May in Kerrville. It would be a great place to meet fellow owners and we always have a good time.

thanks for the info Hunter11. We will consider the Texas Rally next May. It might actually be cool enough to tolerate, ha ! Been a long hot summer already, and another month and a half to go.

Once we take possession, I'll post some pics.

Appreciate the hospitatlity !

First trip was successful, with 3 problems. They have since then been resolved and will be taking her out again next week.

1. Weld on stairs broke and steps had to be supported by a stack of wood blocks. - Dealer replaced steps.
2. When leaving, hooked up Sani-Flush and flooded bathroom. Dealer replaced elbow shaped valve/tank connector.
3. LED Awning lights had several spots where lights were out. Dealer replaced LED strip on both awnings.

Other than that, everything worked great.

Question, I bought the E4 Equalizer bars. When I make sharp turns, it makes some squealing noises, sometimes it makes a popping noise as I turn, is this normal ? The dealer said it would pop when I picked it up.

The noise is perfectly normal and is caused by the spring bars moving back and forth on the brackets. This noise will only be heard at low speeds. DO NOT GREASE the bars and brackets. this friction is required for the anti sway to work properly. I love ours it works great. towed over 2200 miles so far with no sway..

Noise on EQ Hitch & LED Awning Lights

@Charlie,

EQ has come out with Vinyl pads that go on the brackets under the propane. Equal-i-zer 95015150 Spring Arm

They also re-designed the Lock pins so they don't bend and there is a grease that EQ puts out to put on the vinyl pads.

https://www.amazon.com/Equal-i-zer-9...VC8K4JGX9P1RXG

https://www.amazon.com/Equal-i-zer-9...QXMR7W4CG3Z43W





This has SUBSTANTIALLY reduced the noise and wear.

I too have had the LED lights replaced on my 32RL awning while under warranty. A year later and they are out again. Anyone ever find a part number as I may try and replace them myself?

Thank you everyone!
