    We are future planning and looking for suggestions for possible wintering in Arizona. We would like to be in a warmer climate than Minnesota for the winter months. We would prefer a smaller campground but would want full hookups. Thanks for any suggest...  more

    I am so disappointed with Keystone Montana because of the junk they put in their RV. We are having problems again with the nocold refrigerator so we had to cancel our next stop and again. Lost money for the deposit we put down. So we have to stay here unt...  more

      Okietravellers That is bad to hear, but we bought a brand new Cougar in 2010. We also have a motorhome, while in Pensacola we ran into a couple that had a brand new Montana high country we were so amazed at how much more we had besides a third slide, in our 35' Cougar. ...  more

      Thistle Dew Years ago Montana made a great 5th with lousy decals. Now, with Keystone's help they make lousy 5ths with great decals. Our '06 3400RL has been good. Just a few appliance issues, mostly maintenance rather than repair. Whether you buy new or used, you roll...  more

      Steve & Diane Many of the basement keys as well as the door to the levelers are like the Samsonite luggage keys -- one key fits all (one key for the basement and one key for the levelers).  Find another Montana and ask the owner to see if his keys will work on you...  more

      Ricos Ride My solution, a keypad entry door lock from RVLOCKS.com. I keep a full set of spare keys, even truck key, in my RV. The keypad has a key that can be used if the batteries fail and I keep that in my truck glove box Hide 1 Reply

        Steve & Diane We changed the RV main door to a keyless entry (via a keypad) from RVLOCKS.com.  DW loves it.

    Does anyone out there own a Montana Mountaineer toyhauler? We do it is a 2011 but we are looking for the 357 THT as it is a bit bigger as we just got a side-by-side and traded in the Quad, and it won't fit in our trailer?

      Jim & Judy Schuyler We traded in our 2012 which has a 66 inch door. Wife wanted a window in back. Prior years the door was 60 inches so our spyder would not fit. Needed 62 or more. 2012 is at Myers, Cicero, N Y.

      Steve & Diane The Norcold refer in our 2014 Montana died twice at a cost of $2,000+ each time.  After the first time, we purchased an extended warranty from Wholesale Warranties.  The second time our refer died, our part of the $2,000+ was only our deductible...  more Hide 1 Reply

      Robert M Nicest full hookup campground, I actually like Hidden Hollow, in Fernwood state park. We do a lot of dry camping. We have had weekends at Hidden Hollow where we were the only ones there.

    Support needed! Well sort of. We lost 'a leg' of our 12v battery system. Looked at fuses next to batteries. Our landing gear extend, fwd slide works but nothing else. Any tech suggestions?

      Steve and Donna Is your battery disconnect set correctly? Also, most RVs today use circuit breakers near the battery and many are resetable. Look for a small button on the side of the beaker.

      John K There is not enough info to really trouble shoot. Does any 12 volt item work in the Rv? There metal reset breakers mounted to the "firewall" in the battery area. Check for 12 volt power on all posts.  Check to make sure the battery switch in th...  more

      Dreamers and Travelers / Tom & Tammy Thanks. Will resume old school troubleshooting. The main shut off was defective & replaced a few years ago. There has to be a second fuse dead inline. All 12v systems work thru the converter. It happened a few days ago and miraculously fixed itself. Now...  more

      rjb211 Similar situation with us. The facing on one of our living room slides in our 3750fl came down. Just like you describe. Nephew builds custom cabinetry, he had it back up and more soundly secured than original.
      • August 18
    • Bailey & Wysocki
      Carl & Susan Be careful to *NOT* attach it so securely that it can't be removed without damage. The facing has to come off IF (on a 3700 I would say WHEN - been there, done that) the slide needs to be removed.

      Debbie and Bruce bushell I don't think we will. Bruce thinks he rubbed against something in the bed of the truck but not sure what. Oh well we just to get it fixed and be more careful when we are traveling!!
