2013 Jefferson problems

had the big slide out rebuilt in 2016 @ 3500.00 now my other three slide outs are junk and rotted and no holes in rubber. and floor between entry door and slide out is rotted out, Had no signs of water leaks last camping season and was closed up for the winter. Now the repair shop said the insurance may total it out. I can not believe this out of a 5 year old camper as it set its first year on a lot. O do not know who makes the slide outs for crossroads but they are junk.

I know what your talking about...to me..it looks like left over wayne's board used on the slide roof. I've replaced both bedroom slide goods last year. Will be doing the rear slides later this summer. 0507181220b.jpeg

Its amazing what a little bit of water over a long time does. And to think a few hours of time - a tube of caulk and a roll of Eterna bond tape could have stopped it.

No signs of damage on my slide outs yet. (2015 Springfield)

Maybe because I have slide toppers installed?

I am getting slide out covers installed if they repair the camper. I had 3 other campers for 10 years or longer and never seen such cheap materials used on roofs of slide outs as they were flimsy from day one. And should have been better materials for as much as they charges for these campers. I see where caulk and tape and a couple hours could have prevented this but some of us can not be in direct sunlight for much time or we will burn fast. But we should not have these problems out of a 5 year old coach that is only used maybe 10 weekends a year and the rest of the time it is closed up.

Rushmore Washington broke apart

I bought, brand new, a 2014, 40’ CrossRoads ( a Thor subsidiary) Rushmore Washington 5th wheel with 4 slides. The retail sticker price was $80,000, and another estimated $10,000 worth of factory amenities were added to it before delivery. In November it was considered a total loss by my insurance company because most of the frame welds had broken and, according to both a repair facility and the insurance company “it was in imminent danger of breaking in half on the highway”. Neither Thor, CrossRoads, or Lippert Components (the frame and most of the components manufacturer) would accept any responsibility for it or seemed to be the slightest bit concerned about it. When the repair facility asked Thor if they would send a repair person to evaluate the situation (it was too un-roadworthy to move) the service representative (one Dorsey Littell, Crossroads RV Dealer Service Advisor) returned an email stating that the trailer was “almost 5 years out of warranty” and then he refused to respond to any further communication. So much for Thor’s phony “mission statement” that their products were superior and that customer satisfaction was paramount. My insurance company sold it for parts & scrap and planned to sue Thor. (Thor buyers beware. Their brand names are crap. I bought a 2006, 40’ Keystone Challenger 5th brand new. On its maiden trip to the Midwest, having less than 2,000 miles on it, the belly liner blew off and the A/C unit didn’t work.)

Mine was just estimated at $38,923 to repair,so it will be a total loss also most likely and I still owe 39k so I will be paying for a camper I can not use and my grand kids are really upset as no more camping. I can not believe crossroads can get away with all the junk they sell. I agree THOR a superior product not, My cheaper campers lasted at least 10 years or longer with minor problems and never any water damage.I can not stand knowing I spent 20 years in the Marine Corps protecting this country for companies like this. This is one Memorial Day I will not forget. My owning a rv is done now. I wish their was something we all could do.

budrick and TDG,

What kind of insurance do you guys have that will pay for structural failures? I know my Good Sam Extended Warranty only covers operational components (furnace, water heater, A/C's, etc.) and specifically excludes structural problems.

Gepaine...keep an eye on your bedroom slide...I just found water damage on mine...did a quick repair until I can get the slide out pulled out repaired in October at a repair facility. The bottom lower trim cap that attaches to the underside of the slide was not caulked properly on mine...allowed water to run in.

Gossamar,

Are you referring to the about 4-inch tall trim piece at the bottom, outside of the bedroom slider? And was it improperly caulked along the upper edge of the trim piece?

All my cheap a$$ screws were rusted out on the bottom of my slide. Upgrade to stainless steel screws, resealed. No more leaks.

Yes....the trim piece needs to be caulked on top and when I took mine apart the caulk on the underside where it screws to the bottom of the slide was lacking there as well.....

I checked the caulking on our bedroom slider and it was in pretty good condition and I found no evidence of leaks. The upper edge of the trim piece was an area that I had re-caulked a few years ago. The original sealant looked like they did a good job, but it had shrunk back. At that time, I used a silicone sealant which I have since found doesn't stick very good over time.

I have been replacing the silicone sealant little-by-little with "ProFlexRV Flexible Sealant" which I really like. Since you told me about your problem, I'll replace the sealant on the bedroom trim piece next (as soon as I get some more ProFlexRV).

Denatured alcohol helps to remove the silicone. I'd never use silicone on the rv. Silicone does not stick to silicone and it just makes it hard to remove and use the correct caulk.

Hi have same 5er. Floor on bedroom slide rotted away where it meets the outside wall under the plastic the rollers the 4 rollers slide on. Ended up gutting the carpet in bedroom,replacing their garbage with 1 inch marine grade plywood, $150.00 per sheet the put water resistant laminate flooring in whole bedroom. Its a P.I.A to check because you have to take the whole bed frame off the slider. But might be worth it. I also have slide toppers on all three slides! Good luck, hope you find nothing.
