Interesting.....
Finished removing ems, magnum water pump today.
Hooked everything back up...
no furnace fan....
Everything else works.
The thermostat comes on, the ac fan runs, when selecting furnace, there's a slight click... then nothing.
No fan comes on.
I did cut the thermostat wire to the furnace. ( I took out 3 feet of extra wire) joined it back exactly as it was.. only two wires.

I left the trailer unplugged and battery's off. We'll see tomorrow if it resets.
Stumped.

Replaced the 10 yr old smoke detector, 9 yr old CO2 detector with two smoke/CO2 combo units. Also replace the 10 yr old propane detector as it didn't make a sound on our last trip when we had the TT full of leaked propane.

With the Cherokee I could start with light throttle almost no throttle to get rolling and now I have to go with a little more throttle to get rolling. Stopping is about the same. Acceleration is more work now but it never feels buried like I've hit the wall and can't speed up. It's overall slower response and requires more throttle but nothing that the EB engine can't work through at nominal throttle position. In other words I'm not having to floor the gas pedal to start after a red light. Speed is easily maintained where I can feather the throttle instead of steady in it. I can smoothly accelerate at cruising speeds when I get into the throttle greater than half. But don't get me wrong it lets you know you've picked up some weight.

Overall my wife was pleased with the handling and stability of the rockwood compared to the Cherokee, so that's a good barometer for me too. Plus we upgraded from a Trekker 1000 WD to the equal-i-zer four point so I'm sure that helped as well.

Best move I made of the three trailers I have owned. We got a good deal on our trade for a really clean and well taken care of 2013 295 TE in White. Only real thing is dealer had to replace the 7 pin before we took it home but glad we did the wire pulled out of the 7 pin when hooking up.

Works great in 20 degree weather kept us warm our test night, now have to winterize here at home today as temps dropping from 20's to low teens. I am just getting 3 gallons pumping it into the lines and tanks plus drains quick winterize.

What year is yours and what model?

I've had trailers where I needed to pull the twelve v fuse and then replace. This should force a reset.

Prepped the TT to go to Oak Mountain next weekend. Unfortunately I am not doing the camping. Daughter asked if we would let them use it for a weekend at the park and SWHTA agreed to it before I could speak up!.!
Put in spice rack, straightened up the storage. And of course wished I were camping.

I went with a 2017 crusader light 27RK. My wife just fell in love with the rear kitchen and we couldn't believe all the storage. It's my 1st 5ver and we love it.

Awesome Enjoy it ⛺️

I have been looking at the Crusader for 3years but had to go from F150 to F350 did that and then found this clean slightly used 295. Beginning the list of minor upgrades like adding second AC in bedroom, upgrade all fans to Remote control with multi speed since roof is high and wife can't reach and caulk and seal everything as well as just make it our own.

One thing I love is Auto Leveling with my Andersen Ultimate hitch, don't like those jacks on Roo can never get it to stop shaking.

I can't wait for the weather to get better here in Illinois to get it home and do some things to it. Same here I had 2006 f150 and went to a ram 3500 ccsb ctd. Well I hope you get lots of camping in this year with your set up. Do you go to any of the frog events? We have never been but are thinking about it.

Have not done a frog event but next year that might be in the plan. We bought this 2013 Crusader to keep and the more I can learn about it the better. I am also thinking of converting the 4 point electric auto leveling system to a 4-6 point hydraulic, have not spoke to Lipert yet but I am considering it as we plan to keep this one a long time.

There is one in Gettysburg PA in June. It's not far from NJ.

That is beautiful. So many windows in the living area.

Good times ahead.

Nice Brian! What alum steps do they use and is that "Rear Cam ready or Rear Cam Installed"? Looks like you will still be a Customer of "Turbs Pole Company"! Youroo!! PS is there "Sway Tec" Slides on your New unit?

I see more and more people getting away from the Hybrids now, not sure what is changing but for me I always wanted a 5th wheel just didn't have the truck to pull it now I do and I have the Crusader. Who ever buys my Roo is getting a great deal, hardly used, spotless, and all clean in and out.
