Welcome to the MOC. You've found, in my opinion, the best resource available to figure out your new Montana. Lots of intelligent people here who have pretty much seen it all.

Ugh, that's an ugly picture. Sorry you had to go through that, but depending on the weight of your Montana, G's or maybe LT tires are the way to go. Stay away from the E-rated trailer tires.

The math is right, but it's based on hypotheticals. $50/hr? 10k units a year? Sounds reasonable. Who can argue? But the bottom line is correct. We ALL become numb to the process after years of...

I think you'll find you're more than capable to handle this job. It's probably easier than the instructions you received appear to be, and they appear to be easy enough. Let us know how you make out....

It makes sense to me to have everything as stable as possible before moving the slides in or out. I generally wait until they're in before raising or lowering the landing gear in order to hitch up....

I bought the hard-wired. I liked the permanency of it and one less thing to do when setting up. The external gives you the advantage of checking the power at your site before backing in, which is a...

The remote on mine, which I use all the time when hooking or unhooking, only controls the DS scare and pinbox led. And yes, if you use it to turn them on, you need it to turn them off. But this is...

I just put wet bolts on my camper last spring and don't do 5k a year, but plan to grease them before rolling this year. I would think once a year should be good with that amount of mileage.
