HC have arrived with 110# rated wheels since 2016 or 2017. From the dealer I drove 43 miles to the tire shop and had Sailun S637 tires installed when I bought an HC. It was a great 5er but out needs...

The axel depends on the model. The model I had was 43’ and a heavy HC and came with 7k axels. What I didn’t like was the LR F tires that came with it and changed immediately.

I found the same cord at CW on sale for $70. Works great with a 20 amp adapter too. That is what I use in storage.

Many of the Rainier tires are LR F, especially on HCs. Mine were and any 5er of that weight deserves a LR G tire. Glad Sailun tires arrived on my new Montana as one thing I don't feel required to...

My last 5er was an HC and came with Rainier tires. I had already ordered Sailun. I drove 43 miles from the dealer to the tire shop. So, no problem for 43 miles but didn’t trust them any farther. Many...

Now that sounds like bull$hit. By the way Iíve stopped sending him empty beer and soda cans and would never buy anything from him. Nothing easier or safer than my B&W.

Although you pull the pin to drop the front legs to assist in unhitching, the front legs are part of the system. They work with the rear legs to have the camper level side to side and front to back. ...

Electric systems have a little shorter stroke. If I could see a deep drop I'd add a block under the low leg(s) and let it do the work. I only had to do that once with one leg as it did go out of...

Why do you level side to side? I never did/do. The system takes care of side to side and front to rear.

I think based more on length than anything. I had 4 point electric on a 34' Cougar with no problems. Also 6 point electric on a 43' HC without problems. I do like the current 6 point hydraulic best...

I’ve had 2 with electric and now 2nd with hydraulic. The latter is faster. Never had a problem with either systems. I hang up the keys if I couldn’t get auto level now.

With the auxiliary tank I can go around 800 miles before I need to look for diesel. With the TDS card at Loves it is usually cheaper at the truck stops than local stations.

Agree 100%. Expected more from TL mag. Chevy probably thought it was a great idea and TL compromised by adding the 350 and doing both. A newb with a 2013 3/4 will think they are good to go.

Ordered 2 Dometics on our 2nd trip before the 1st Thetford leak. As soon as I got home a 310 went into the 1/2 bath and 320 into the main bath. Added a shut off on both water lines.

F350 LB dually. In the bed is the B&W hitch, Ladder, and AUX tank. Nothing else, the Montana 3761 has more outside storage than any 5er I've seen ~~ front to back!
