What problems did you experience?

We needed a bunk model so I bought a CC over the Elite suites because of, several experiences like this, DRV We have had a few problems like that but they were all small and fixed in half a day at a dealership and no problems since. All RVs need things fixed. We had a new American Heritage MH we paid 10 times as much for and you would really rant if you had to have all the things fixed and worked on that a MH like that takes. I love the CC and think its wonderful for the money, and they could upgrade some of the small things.

Wow Bob,
That's a lot of bad luck on a lot of units in a short period of time. Aside from the fact that there is no "Cedar Creek Ridgeview" I would be curious to know what is keeping your 36CKTS in the shop for so long. As for the Ridgeview, I'll assume it was a Chevy which explains all. LOL

ps. Looked at the KZ Stoneridge. It didn't measure up. Escalade is discontinued.

I had the black tank flush leaking into the storage bay. That was a coupling at the top of the bay. I tightened it and it is now good. The kitchen table turned white after putting hot food on paper plates on it. I'm going to give it a good polyurethane coating to fix that. They didn't have any protective coating on it, so that is expected. My bedroom AC was short cycling and that is because the sensor on the ceiling was cooling down too fast due to air flow on it. I packed it in foam rubber and solved that! I haven't had any of the other troubles that you have had, Bob. I hope they make it right for you. Of the troubles that I have had, I'm just disappointed that they didn't have any protective finish on the table.

I am just tired of using my coach for a few weeks than taking it in for service, than using it , than take it back for service. I have owned a 2008 airstreasm 28' safari, the 2010 cedar creek 36 Re touring, 2011 forest river ridgeview and now the 2013 36 CKTS the only one that I would recommend as having some pride in its construction was the airstream, I have bought all 4 in less than 4 years looking for the one that is built well and fits our needs, I guess the search continues, but it will not be another FR product. my wife will not allow it. Maybe she will feel different when we see it again but for now it sits waiting for parts.
