Slide Out/Tires/Electrical and Propane

Reporting back on your terrible misfortune on our recent 15,000 miles trip thru Canada, Alaska and the USA. If you may remeber, our right rear tire did in fact make contact with the slide out pivot with the right rear tire on the Crusader 270 RET. This took out the tire by ripping off its tread, which wrapped itself arouind the rear axle brake assembly three times, taking along with the porppane, ac/dc wiring and the 110V used for the frig. in the slideout. Cost us a little overe 800 dollars to have it reaoired at FireWeed RV in Whitehorse, Canada. Great shop is you're ever in need. Anyway, Prime Times Management has and will not assume any responsibility for this problem even after I pointed out to them three other Crusaders that have had similar problems with the Pivot Rod only being 4 1/4" away from the Tire. Next stop for me will be the National Highway Department for Vehicle Safety. Recently sent them ten photographs showing the problem and a way to fix it....Thanks RV Guy for ignoring my request. Want even mention the Brake Assy. that was never even wired in when the coach left your factory back in 2011 and of course thw wrong Brake Assy. that was somehow mounted on the coach. Oh yes and the Wheel Bearing problem that cost us another 1100 bucks in September.
