Check with Prime time and see if there has been a re-call on your awning..mine had to have a motor replaced before i could take delivery !! Amazing !!! That should have been clue for things yet to come ...

Crusader trip Canada

After replacing the springs on both dual axles, new wheel hubs and bearings and some structural members along with all new Goodyear tires there were no issues for the entire 6,000 mile plus trip.

I did have to replace the porch light because it overheated and melted the plastic while in New Hampshire. The new light same as original had a heat deflector as part of the assembly that the original did not.

Running gear now is acceptable.

Best of luck with your crusader.
