We live in our 5th wheel. The electric issue has been the way it is since March of last year, 1 month after we bought it.

I would have taken it in them to get it covered under warranty. You may have missed the warranty window on that one now.

I bought it new in February of 2014 (a year ago). It still had the plastic on everything, was brand new even though it's a 2012. They told me the 2 years warranty doesn't start until the day of purchase so hopefully I'm still covered for the next year.
I bought it and the following week I moved it to San Antonio where I was working in the oilfield. I drive a truck and I'm not home all the time, so time was an issue back then. All I know is when I bought it, everything worked fine. Then when I got it to Texas and started setting it up I noticed a green wire (looked like 12 gauge 12 volt wire) in the kitchen where the slide out meets the floor. It was sticking out under the carpet with a broken end. I'm assuming when I extended the slide out it was caught and broke. The first week or 2 down there everything worked. Then one day when making coffee everything on that side of the trailer stopped getting power. I checked the GFIs and never could get it to come back on. I've managed without those few outlets ever since. Like I said, sometimes I'm gone for weeks at a time so it never has been a big deal.
The pinched propane line just came about in December. The oilfield slowed down so I came back to Oklahoma to work. In route up here is when the wife and I noticed the stove and fridge don't get gas unless the slide out is extended. Sorry if I couldn't explain better in my previous posts. I was trying to type on my phone.

We had the same problem with the propane hose on our unit. Whenever the slide was in the propane line was crimped. Dealer replaced the hose with a longer one and we haven't had a problem since. If you don't have time to take it to a dealer for repair you might want to call CrossRoads and see if they will approve a repair done by a mobile tech. Otherwise you can do a visual check by having your wife slowly retract the slide while you watch the propane hose. You should be able to see where it is binding and be able to formulate a fix. Most likely a longer hose will solve the problem. Just make sure that the new hose doesn't bind also and then secure it with cable ties if necessary. If you decide to call CrossRoads be sure to discuss the electrical problem also. Might be able to get both repairs done by a mobile tech.

I definitely feel better now knowing that the propane line is a common problem. I will give Crossroads a call. Thanks again.

Might not want to tell them you full time in it as warranties can be voided by that.

Kind of off the subject but since it's been in the 20s I've been operating off my fresh water tank and have my hose disconnected. My 5th wheel has the enclosed basement and tank heat strips. Everything stays nice and warm under there with the furnace running. However, the fresh water fill has ice in it. I can't refill my tank. I still have 1/3 in it but wanted to top it off so we can shower in the morning. I tried pouring hot water from a 1/2 gallon pitcher in it but it just runs back out. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Keep pouring the hot water in there, it will eventually melt. I'd be careful using a hair dryer, if you melt the plastic hose or the back flow valve, you'll have bigger issues.
Good luck!

I wouldn't think a hair dryer would melt that plastic. Maybe run it on the inside access, or a light bulb or heat lamp if you have one.
