I need help. My 2012 zinger had water damage after hurricane Irene. I claimed it to my insurance. After camping world and my insurance went throught the camper, they determined that the water leak was from a manfacture defect with the camper. Now it is destroyed and has mold growing in it. Not sure what to do now. I'm paying for a camper that I can't use now.

Help us help you - where did the damage come from? What was the specific defect and it's location found by the (I appologize in advance) moron's at CW? How long was it wet, did you get another opinion? Have you contacted Crossroads?

I used it twice this year. Noticed no water. Parked it in the backyard until after hurricane Irene hit. After the storm,I pulled the camper into my driveway and when I stopped, water came rushing out from under the camper. Water came out were the hitch frame connects the trailer frame. The underside is seamed up. When I looked inside the camper the back bunk room had mold growing on the cabinet, seats, and table. Started to grow on the bunks. That is when i called my insurance company. I emailed crossroads and have not heard back yet. Camping world did a pressure test on the unit and it showed leaks all over the unit. Edited by: swampi28

First, with something as important as your situation you ought to be calling. Second, they found leaks "all over" the camper? Something smells funny here and it isn't the mold in your bunkroom. A hurricane like Irene can DRIVE water into seams, seals, and slide openings that otherwise wouldn't leak. At the end of the day a hurricane isn't a warranty issue - what does your selling dealer have to say (I hope it isn't the same CW you mentioned leak-tested your camper)? Are they standing up for you? How about your insurance company, did they send out an independent inspector?

I did buy the camper from camping world. That same place that tested it. We will be making phone calls come monday but looking to see where to start. I did talk to my insurance and they denied the claim.

No water hooked up at all. Not sure where the water came from. Camping world said that the seals are bad all over
