I would call PT and ask what size tank you have and if it is a 38 gallon have some one check it out.
Thank you for the welcome, please look at my answer to capucine.

Take care,

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new trailer. I'm in the same boat as you! I purchased a tracer 3000bhs in Nov. went to the web site and saw my trailer was discontinued , I contacted primetime, they stated the model was not selling, that was the reason . I've had a couple of problems with my trailer, but customer service has been very good, I've dealt with Brandon York who has returned all my calls and that alone is big and worked with my dealer fixing the problem and assured any problem will be taken care, so far it has, I think you will be happy if you do need customer service! . Goodluck and have fun camping!

wait'n on the sun

New to this forum, and to camping with a 5'er. Had a Puma 25RKSS and traded it in. Just picked up our Crusader 290RLT a few weeks ago and now we're just sitting here watching the snow cover it up in the driveway.
Can't wait til we can get out and use it! Already have about 6 trips planned.

Sky Line Drive

Good luck, on your trip down the Sky Line Drive. In 1982, My wife and I, and two kids, pulled a 30ft trailer, with a Jeep Cherekee Wagner. All the way down the Drive and the BlueRidge Parkway. It took us 5 days. It was a white knuckel drive. But it was beautiful.
When we returned home, I had to put new brakes on the TT, and The Jeep.
We always enjoy the drive across I-81.

Good luck

Hi Everyone - I have been following this forum for about month and all the wonderful endorsements for the Crusader (and PT in general) were the deciding factor in purchasing a Crusader over an Open Range 5’er. My partner and I just purchased the ‘show special’ 320RLT with the fireplace and double door refrigerator - we couldn’t be happier with our decision. We purchased the unit from Johnston RV Country in Palmyra, NY – they have been great to deal with – I would highly recommend the dealership and our salesperson, Ryan Stiles. And to top if off, when we did the walk through yesterday I took along a printout of all the little improvements Tkcakes made (thanks Tcakes!) just so I could see what he was referring to. The technician, Nick, not only pointed out every thing on the list but said he would make those improvements before we picked it – yea!! As well as create easier access to the hot water tank bypass. The first camping weekend is scheduled for April 15th!!!

Congrats on the new trailer! I'ld like to you as our newest PT Crew Member.

Sounds like you have a good dealer. That's a big plus.

Good luck and happy camping!
