Does the bottom of your slide out flip up for access to the tie downs? The floor on my father's 2912 does not and it makes things interesting at times.

That's a good question. I'll look when I get home.

Mine does not. Interestingly, earlier models did have a flip up floor. Not sure why they changed. We've been able to tie everything down ok, but we're sure to protect any part of the slide that may contact the ratchet strap.

Our floor doesn't flip up either.

For all those with a 2912. Did your unit come with a bunk ladder?

Apparently the ones coming out now don't. My dealer told me that Cruiser upgraded the cabinetry and made the ladder an option. However, the check list that came with our trailer from Cruiser RV not only has it listed, but it's been checked off as being included! My dealer is working on it, we'll see what happens!

Update and I believe sway problem is solved

I just pulled 8hr to WV mountains, poorly loaded 3 wheelers, 2 at the ramp and prolly at or over gvwr. I was expecting the worst. First 3hrs of the trip...tolerable then it became unstable and dance around...no real sway. Once I started down long grades I would get some sway and manual brake the trailer.

Return home, 1st couple hours ok, then started dancing. Stopped for fuel a few times checked hubs and such all ok both up and back.

My last fuel stop I found pass front tire 2 inches taller than the rest. This tire had a perfect bowed tread all the way around. Swapped out to my spare and I swear this trailer towed like it was on rails all the way home...could not make it sway.


Seems these cheep ass tires are a real issue

What brand of tire came on your 2912? Is it possible to post a picture? Apparently, I have a 2016 and a half and Cruiser made some changes. They added a porch light, upgraded the cabinetry and made the bunk ladder optional. So I'm wondering if they went with different tires as well. Thanks.

Just a quick update from my previous post regarding our unit not coming with a ladder. Our dealer took care of us and got us a ladder at no extra charge!

Great to hear you got a ladder. Definitely needed. I also wish mine had a porch light.

My tires are called "Vail Sport Radial ST" 235/80R 16. Definitely Chinese made, but most camper tires are. I check pressures before every trip, and put 303 Aerospace Protectant on them often to prevent sun damage. My tires are nitrogen filled and they seem to hold pressure better than others.

Winterizing the camper

Had to winterize our camper today. The water pump is located under the right hand large drawer in the kitchen. Remove the bottom drawer and you'll see the pump, and the winterization hose and valve. The hot water heater bypass is located in the bathroom under the linen closet. Remove the panel at the bottom and you'll find it. I drained the water heater as well.

I used about 1 1/2 gallon of antifreeze in the lines, and poured the rest in the traps and toilet. Don't forget your spray port on the outside. I then poured a gallon into my fresh tank, and turned on the pump to clear any water between the tank and the pump. I then opened the low point drain on the tank to drain out the remaining antifreeze. I think I got it all.

Some people prefer to blow the lines out with air instead of using the pink stuff, but we prefer the antifreeze method. We always start the season at a full service campground to thoroughly flush out the pink stuff.

For those of you who don't have to do this - you're lucky! Wish we could camp year-round, but now it's time to dust off the skis.
