Clear coat peeling off

Just inspected our beloved Z-1 after one of the harshest Ontario winters . . .my rig was built in 2011 but purchased 'new' 10 months ago from a local dealer so I'll be seeking a repair under warrantee. It's the clear coat over the aluminium from the two upper most panels that's peeled off in spots . . . . .looking pretty unsightly right now. Is this a common problem I wonder?

I would push to have it completely redone. If it is peeling in spots, it will probably peel in more spots. Good luck. I wouldn't let it sit at the dealer too long before contacting CR directly.

Thanks for the advice Mike,
I'm taking it to the dealer this month (April) for and inspection. They said on the phone they had never heard of such a thing but it has been mentioned in the Zinger forum which has the same front panel issues. In that case, Crossroads replaced the panels so it must be a 'known' problem, . . . . .Eddy

Regardless, it is under warranty, right? Whether they've heard of it or not, it should be covered. Good luck!

I'd copy those forum posts to have on hand as proof there has been a problem in the past.

Wow. I'd definitely insist on it being completely repainted with new decals.

Ohh... no kidding. Common or not, definitely a warranty issue!

peeling top coat

Thanks for the posts guys. The dealer contacted Crossroads based just on my pictures alone which we were very impressed with. Now have three replacement panels on order. After our obvious disappointment, the swift actions on behalf of our dealer have reinstated my faith in the company . . . . .for now!!

Thumbs up Peeling paint

Just got back from the dealer they did a great job in changing my panels on the front.They even found another panel that the screw was reacting to the aluminium and have it on order.My rims were also peeling and they changed them and they are fancier then the ones that were on.Thanks to Crossroads and my dealer Leisuretime rv sales in Hammond river New Brunswick they both stepped up to make this customer happy.:thumb.Cant wait to get out and start enjoying our trailer after this long winter.
