Hey fellow campers.







Well I have to vent a little. We started our first camping trip of 2010 to our favorite local campground and found we could not get the heat or A/C to work. It looks like the thermostat (Remote) would not work. I ran through all the checks and balances I could think to include looking on the roof for fuses that might have blown.. With no luck. Ended up going to Wal-mart to purchase the last elec heater they had among all the fans for summer.



I really do not like the remote, but cannot find anyone who will replace the thermostat without wanting to replace the whole unit.



I do hope this is not the sign of things to come for 2010. We had such a bad year last year and DW is ready to park it on the side of the road for someone to come pickup.



Happy camping to everyone in 2010.

I went to walmart and bought a hunter thermostate for under 20.00$ and got the wireing diagram by doing a search. Maybe hunter11 can help us out.

Keith, email me later for some info on the remote. I still say our trailers were built on the same day and it was either a Friday or a Monday. Ours has been at the dealers for a week now. Here are a couple of links below to the Hunter thermostat install.

Another "atta boy" for Crossroads who stepped up and assisted me with my problem with the a/c-heat.. Replacement parts are on the way... Thanks again for everyone's advice and assistance. Let's hope the next trips end great.

I can sure agree with parking my 5er on the side of the road and letting whatever happen, happen. Hotwater tank not working...mixing valve needs replaced...at least under warranty. bi-fold cover over burners finally got replaced after third one...the list continues...thank GOD for Randy....just got to know AMY recently, she took over for Shannon. They know me at Crossroads on a first name basis...I agree with Keith, mine had to have been built on a Friday or Monday.

OK.. This nightmare continues..



Started my third trip this year and after getting to the campground at dusk, my slide would not open (couch/dinnette). You could hear the motor "clicking".. No problem, remain calm and find the manual crank and we will get this thing open and enjoy my weekend camping. Use the manual crank and "snap" the manual rod attached to the motor breaks off. I'm loosing it fast by now.. Climb under and look at the motor and yep the rod twisted off right at the motor. Only a 1/2 stub remains sticking out of the motor. Contacted Lippert Components and they said take it to local dealership for warranty work. So guess I will be spending my weekend in a 1/2 open trailer. I don't want to open the slide and be stuck open. Better closed so we can roll on Sunday. I am really loosing faith in my PP now. I do believe Crossroads steps up to assist, but when EACH trip is messed up because of junk going wrong, your faith dwindles.



Hope others are having a better year.

Keith, I feel your pain. We finally got ours back form the dealer last Saturday and I am putting it up for sale as soon asI can get it cleaned up and an add placed. I cannot remember one trip we have taken with the PP we have not had an issue of some kind. The old Cruiser was great but not this one. Hope you get yours worked out at some point.

Keith, Sorry to hear about the issues you are having. Hope you will still hang around and help every one like you have in the past. Every one knows I'm just here for comic relief lol

I think that all of us who bought a PP and thought they were buying an upline were sadly mistaken, the PP was the same as the cruiser, right down to the last detail, except for different floorplans, all the rest of the unit was the same, I think the PP was crossroads "cash cow" alot more money for the same unit, our init will sit this summer, I don't think we are even going to flush the anti-freeze and I am sure sooner or later we will sell it, I was foolish and added alot of goodies to this unit, to which I will lose out on, and I have learned alot from this unit, I will be much more fussy with my next unit....crossroads has been more than fair with me, and I have bought 3 from them but it's time to move on, I guess the saying that you get what you pay for is true..........

I have learned alot from this unit too. However, I have not had the problems you all have had. I did have a issues with the roof and decals and CR did come in to a degree and I think better than any other RV makers. I have learned to really do a GOOD inspection before signing papers. I think there is only one other that is giving a 3 year coverage. I hope that if you guys do move on that you can check back as you have been a wealth of information here.
