Thanks eileent, have you had any issues, such as having to dump black tank every time you dump gray tank. I spoke to someone with that issue his was a bogger crusader than ours

No, haven't had any problems with the tanks. Just a hint- get a short water hose, hook it to the black tank flush inlet and coil it up and leave it there. Much easier to hook to H2O than fussing with the plastic in the docking station.

I had a problem with the electrical wiring on my 2013 290RLT and it turned out a friend of mine had the same problem on his 2012 260RLT. But he didn't check his out until after the warranty ran out so he was out of luck.

The problem was everytime the water pump would run, the lights in the bathroom would dim real low. It was quite annoying when no city water was avail and we had to use the water pump. I asked several RV repair shops and they said this should happen since the water pump should be on it's own circuit. But mine and my friends water pump was wired to the same circuit as the bathroom lights. After complaining to my dealer, they agreed and then installed a new isolated circuit just for the water pump. No more dimming problems.

So you might check that out.

I've had my 2013 Crusader 260RLD since January. The only "non-dealer" problem I have encountered is that the weld broke on the table and it collapses. I hate my dealer but am going to have to bite the bullet and see if this is covered under warranty. I tried clear JB weld on it but it didn't hold. Other then that we have been happy and just finished 9 days in the Adirondacks camping with a generator and it all went smooth...

Congrats and safe travels....
