Mine came with a battery disconnect in the docking station - maybe a 2014 add? Good news is they are cheap and easy to add. I had day/night shades in my last 5th but the window tint wasn't near as dark as the Crusader is - so I kind of doubt I'll miss them-should be fine with just the night shades. I was a bit surprised at the lack of a spot for kitchen garbage can. Need to mod the shelf under the sink for a can to fit. We previously had a rear kitchen unit with tons of storage (and dinette) so now less storage but more living space - we'll adjust. We are torn about using the propane bbq it came with because we have a webber baby q we really like.....might try to get that working on the quick disconnect, decisions. The auto levellers are insanely good. Really a great package from an impressive company. I was at the dealers yesterday watching the hot shotters from the factory pull in with Tracers, Lacross and Avenger but I think I got the only Crusader TE so far. Nice.

Amazing feedback thus far! Exciting to read. We couldn't resist and drove by our dealer tonight to see our unit again. It's still sitting there waiting for us...

I'll be interested to see if our unit has a battery disconnect or not. It is a 2014, so we hope like Irishrv's it does.

Irishrv I think you'll find that if you use the LP BBQ that came with the Crusader it won't compare to your Weber. I know in our case we'll stick with our Weber. I just use a 10LB tank and won't bother modifying it to use the quick connect on the rig.

The battery disconnect doesn't bother me, really. I just take the ground wire off the battery when we store it, then replace it as we get it ready for a trip. Nice to know they added it on the '14, and I'll get around to adding one soon. We noticed the tint was darker on the unit than our previous and, as result, we'll most-likely be just fine without the day/nights too. Roger that on the somewhat limited storage and missing trash can space. Again; we'll adapt... The most difficult thing is the wait till our maiden voyage next week!!

The fit/trim quality on our 295rst is five times that of the ole Cougar. Very impressed with PT...

Does anyone happen to know what size battery the battery box will accept? I have 2 G24 on my TT and they are all but done. I'd like to go with one on the new rig and ideally put in a G27.

We signed all the paperwork this morning, but our toppers still aren't in and the service department did not exactly give me confidence that they'll have it done by our scheduled pickup date of this Friday. I think we'll just take it like it is and bring it back for topper installation.

We are extremely excited.

Well the long wait was DEFINITELY worth it. .

Our Prime Time unit was everything we could have hoped for and more. There were no surprises with the unit itself, not one single issue. Everything worked and the fit and finish was just plain out of this world.

We are over the moon happy and we just know our Crusader will serve us for years and years.

Good to hear things went well. When's the first trip?

We finally take ours out of storage tomorrow in preparation for a mini trip this weekend. We're sooooo ready to go...

Scratch we left our dealer and went right to a campground (kind of a tradition for us) to have our first outing.

We had an absolute BLAST and we just love our Crusader.

Ours also has a battery disconnect in the docking station.

Envious about that battery disconnect, Newfie!!

Our dealer is now checking on what it would cost us to swap the 15" tires/rims for 16s.

Were you able to find time away from those comfy theater seating chairs during your stay?
