Sunset Trail Reserve SF34BH

First time RVers and we went straight to 5th wheel. Towing with a Ford F250 7.3L. We took our first trip close by, thank goodness. The Thermostat grounded out and stopped working. The rubber moulding on the side popped off, probably from over screwing from what I've read. The main door wouldn't unlock because the key would not insert. The black water valve would not close and leaked. Our dealer, Manteca Trailer, has been great so far fixing all. I was told to expect these type of issues to work the kinks out. I hope that's the extent of the issues.

Welcome, and congrats on your new rig. I'm sure you'll love it once you get the initial bugs worked out of it. Unfortunately, quality is a concept that is lost on the RV industry.

Welcome to the forum and best of luck with your new Rv. Seems almost everybody has some issues with new Rv's whether Crossroads or some other brand. Keep on em and you will get all the bugs out. Ask questions here also. You'll get a lot of good anwers here from a lot of experienced Rvers.
