Default FF 189FDS PROBLEMS WITH CRAP TRAILER

Worked my butt off to buy a trailer. FF are crap trailers. my wife and I bought it Feb this year, and so far have used it once and we have a lot of problems. Took it out and had some problems with it. Heres the list. 1. seams are not sealed on top of slide 2.outside shower has major water leak when used 3. eleceric toung jack quit working 4. cable line was cut in to. 5.Leaks in 2 spots at front under mattress 6.shock that holds door open broke off 7.some lug nuts are strpped. 8.mattress has a tear in it. Taking this peice of crap in to get fixed next week we see how well they do. If auto compcnys make their cars reliable why cant rv companys? Its good we all can have this support group for all our shitty trailers. Salty

Default Crap Trailer

Sorry to hear about your trailer problems. Hopefully, the dealer will address your problems. You did mention one problem that I have some experience with and that's the electric tongue jack. mine has an inline fuse in the A-frame wiring. It's hard to see unless you look under the A-frame and trace the wiring. I blew it twice before I learned to slowly creep up on the high limit switch when retracting the jack. Hope the fuse is your problem. It's a cheap fix.

Default FunFinder quality

My FF-189 has been relatively free of defects, knock on wood, but I see some real horror stories on this forum. From what I recall, you have had your share of problems. I wonder if Cruiser occasionally "farms out" the production of some FF models to other manufacturers? There are several plants around Elkhart so what's to keep Cruiser from doing so if their plant gets scheduled up.
