Warranty Work

We are full timers and taking our rig in for warranty work is out of the question. We called a Mobile Tech and have an appt for next week. The young lady asked for our model and I told her it was a Redwood 38RL, and she advised that Crossroads has a policy that unless I take it into an authorized dealer I will have to pay for all work done and apply for reimbursement through them myself. I have had work done in the past on other RV's from other manufactures without any problems with this same Mobile Tech. I was just wondering if this is the norm with Crossroads, or is there someone I can contact at Crossroads for assistance....Thanks

From My understanding and what others on here have stated the mobile tech was correct. You would have to pay then get reimbursed. I have heard others say it takes a long time to get your money back also.

I have had a mobile tec work on ours 2 or 3 times with the previous management team and he would call RW and get authorized to do the repairs and I paid him myself. Then I submitted the invoice marked paid along with a copy of the check I wrote him. Both times I had a check within 2-3 weeks.
Just remember that this was with old management!!! I may have changed.

Good luck with that.....

Still waiting for the promised reimbursement from work a mobile tech did this past December. Apparently things have changed since I was told in late January that they had everything they needed to get the payment out to me. Several messages left and emails sent with no response back since then.

I'm not holding my breath on getting anything from them at this point. Very disappointed in Redwood and Crossroads.

If anyone has had any luck recently getting reimbursed and has the name of someone at Crossroads please share it.

I called Redwood a couple of weeks ago and was told that we'd need to take our RW to our dealer or if out of the area it would need to go to an approved Redwood repair facility. In an emergency I was told to call Redwood to get approval to use an unapproved repair shop, or if stranded, and we really had an emergency we could have a mobile repair fix the problem. But we are supposed to call Redwood first. If it was after hours or on a weekend we'd need to call the first business day to get approval. The reason that I called is because we've had so many serious problems and we've only been on one 3 day outing since purchasing our brand new RW. I wanted to know what do we do if we're many miles from home with no way to get back to our dealer.

We've had two plumbing leaks that filled the underbelly of our RW. One was a holding tank leak (gray water) the day we tried to leave our dealers lot the day of purchase, the other a water line on our only outing on day two. The hot water line in the bathroom sink was pinched and we had no hot water. We had a leak in the kitchen that flooded under the kitchen cabinet and flooded the floor. Two of the holding tanks didn't register. Our residential refrigerator came loose and banged into the island cabinet when the slide was in. The mounting screws had come loose. Our dealer pushed the refrigerator back in place and installed larger screws with extra braketry. My husband thought the brakes weren't working and he was right. Our dealer found grease coming out of the seals and it was all over the brakes. The warranty replaced them. After over 3 weeks in the shop all repairs have been made and we picked it up yesterday. We've hoping to be able use it without any problems after the holiday. We've owned our new RW since April 10, 2017

We returned a couple of weeks, ago from our first trip in our new 2016 38SRQ. We left it with the dealer along with a list of items from our extended shakeout trip. Included on this were the front closet doors not staying in the tracks on rough roads (LA area), a missing stabilizer pad on the right rear jack, trim on stairs coming off, and some cosmetic items. We put nearly 4000 miles on it, so asked to have the Lippert suspension greasable bolts and wheel bearings serviced. We heard from the dealer today and he said the brake pads and drums are shot! We had each of our past two 5ers for 10 yes each with no brake problems. So what gives here? He said a stone may have found its way in the brakes? Dealer is checking whether manufacturer warranty will cover that repair. We were pleasantly surprised to find greadsbld bolts and thicker Guage shackles on the Lippert suspension, but have been contemplating Mor Ryde IS , larger wheels and disc brakes. We were side by side with a new 40+ ft Mobile Suites that had come with IS and disc brakes standard. Nice.

Ask if the brakes were contaminated with grease leaking from the seals which has been a problem on most all RWs. A stone in one wheel would not affect the other 3, I'd have them show you the problem, most dealers I wouldn't take their word for the sky being blue.
