There is also a screw head that was not set right at the factory. As the slide retracts, the screw head makes contact with the floor and has put about a 10" tear in the floor. And I have not even used the trailer yet. Dealer said it would be covered under warranty but was unaware about the underside wearing. Still hoping to enjoy the trailer as both myself and my wife really like it. Just hoping this isn't the beginning of a long list of issues.
You will enjoy the crusader, we do
I only have on side of one slide ripping and showing wood. Other than that all good! Prime time fixed any little issue with no hassle or problem for me. But I am dropping the unit off next week for the slide wear. Keep ya posted

Our rig is going to the dealer next week. One of the issues will be the slide wear. Although in my case the wear is likely caused by a screwhead. We will see.

Spent another night in our Prime Time product last night and I am happier each night that we use it that we chose Prime Time! Their customer service is simply outstanding as well.

I'm pretty pleased with my mod.
It's worked great so far. We're using our 325RES now in Pentwater, MI
Absolutely beautiful weather in the most beautiful place, during the best time of year to glamp in the season.
I'll probably do the same to the kitchen slide as well.

Mine is going in for slide wear. Replace the fabric and adjust is what PT and dealer have said.

Maybe Prime time------------

Maybe Crusader should look at the Rockwood fifth wheels slide out construction. Mine has a hard plastic covering the complete bottom on the slide out and a hard plastic material covering the part that touches the rollers when it is moving in and out.

Wrong heading! Not Prime Time----
