We are the new owners of a 2016 Crossroads Zinger ZT32SB
. We purchased the TT at an RV show in January 2016, and did our walk-through in late-January 2016. The dealer held/stored our TT until late-April when we picked it up and brought it home.
Since bringing it home, we have been fortunate to have two trips out (one week and then three nights) and we have done the infamous yamping (yard camping).
Being new TT owners, we have run into some problems and are now wondering if these are more than the norm for a brand new camper.
1) Water heater circuit board is faulty (occurred on June 13, day two of a seven day camping trip - we are still waiting on a new circuit board and have taken our second trip with no hot water ... still waiting)
2) Leaky antenna - when the antenna is raised, we have a leak in the rain. No leak if the antenna is down
3) Rust. For being a new travel trailer, it surprises me at how much rust is around the base of the unit.
3a) The rust is so bad that we had our propone line in the back for the outside kitchen break open three days ago, therefore, we cannot use the propane at all right now because the line is open.
4) Loose cable wiring - but thankfully, we were able to remove the bunk base and fix that ourselves with relative ease.
I think those are the main things. There are some other quirks that have come up, but knowing this is a travel trailer, it's not a home on a foundation, we expect those things!
Any help or guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We will be calling the dealer again tomorrow to check on the status of the circuit board and also to inquire into getting the propane line fixed. But I'm considering contacting Crossroads too, but wasn't sure if that's necessary at this time.
Thanks in advance! And I'm excited to be here!!
