Just stopping in to say Hi. Just purchased a new Elevation 3912. Looking forward to learning a lot and enjoying our new RV adventures.

Cheers,

Matt.

Welcome to the forum. You are a bit up the road from me, but close to some nice state parks.

Welcome aboard, Matt. Congrats on the new rig and hope it brings you and your family many happy memories.

BTW, I see that some of you are Georgians. Please PM me with suggestions for state parks as we are picking up our grandsons in GA before heading to Mammoth Cave. TIA

It's been 7 months since our new Elevation and it's been quite a ride. The RV itself has been great with a few exceptions. We've been out in it 3-4 times and have about 3,000 miles on it.

We are new to RV'ing and have full time jobs and young kids so the Elevation simply met our needs. Wish we had more time, but that will come...

Other than one big issue (the roof membrane tearing and riping off from the front all the way back to the first AC unit), most all the "problems" have been within our expectations. Crossroads have been great and not challenged any of the various warranty work claims. A new roof would have cost me $6,000...so I'm happy.

Dealer, Southern RV in Jonesboro GA has been great. Dealer helped figure out the TVs and how to get a picture on all of them. Turned out all TVs except the main one had not been connected to the hub from the manufacturer. I have the DirecTV Travlr installed because we really like our TV and wanted to RV for entertainment purposes with friends as much as glamping.

Small Issues:

LED's on main awning have been sketchy, but dealer replaced the LED strip (known issue with 1st gen LEDs) and all has been great.

A few small pieces of trim started to gap, but dealer took care of that.

Not a whole lot of hot air coming out of the main return in the living area. Dealer cut about 50% of the air line away, straightened the air path and all seems to be better. We also added adjustable registers to the bathroom and bedroom to REDUCE the amount of hot air coming into the bedroom and bathroom. For the most part we have been using Electric heaters because I see no reason to use my propane when I'm paying for 50amp service.

All in all though, everything has been great so far. The rig pulls great. No weaving, no chucking, no banging....nothing.

All the entertainment systems have worked well (once connected) and all appliances are working fine.

Slideouts seem to work just fine and do not bind at all.

I replaced all the normal bulbs with LED bulbs to reduce the amount of hear those little bulbs generate. It's amazing how much heat comes out of those small bulbs.

The kids LOVE the queen beds in the rear and the fact I can lift them up with all the blankets etc still on them is a huge plus.

I did add a solar battery charger to keep the battery alive and kicking. It was a real disappointment to go out after it sitting for a couple of weeks and the battery had died.

Genny works great. I serviced it after the first 20 hours.

All in all, great rig. I love the fact that we are a little unique. See way to many Raptors and Voltage rigs for my liking.

Curious what happened to your roof. Same thing just happened to my 3612, tore in front back to first AC unit then diagonal to side. Trying to get service now, but it has been three weeks trying to get the Manufacturer and dealer to work together. Looks like I'll post my own forum thread to try and drive some results. I really like my Elevation, and this is not how I expect things to work.
