Opinion of factory options

Hi everyone,

I just purchased a new 3810MS. Any suggestions on options to add at the dealership? I have added a 340 watt solar set up. Any other suggestions? Thanks so much in advance

I say ditto on the slide toppers. As far as the hitch is concerned, I chose the Anderson hitch and really like the way it pulls and appreciate that I can take it out and have a flat bed within about 5 minutes. We also purchased the pre-wired backup camera. That may be standard on your 3810MS. Also, something small but important is a water pressure regulator that has a gauge and is adjustable.

Not a dealer option (I think?), but get a Progressive or something similar to protect your electronics.

-Slide toppers
-Good G rated tires (if it does not already have them
-Good EMS hard wired system

Wife had to have a washer and dryer. Our 3911FB legacy came pretty well loaded. Didn't have to add anything other than the w&d. Maybe add a satellite dish later on.

I think The new Montanaís you can order with Slide Toppers, disc brakes, and some sort of EMS not sure it is Progressive, but I installed one myself on all my units that I have had first one read their instructions, it is easy but take your time great investment.

I added slide toppers to mine immediately, installed an inverter and balanced the tires.

Balanced the tires, never thought of that, will have my tires checked and balanced B4 our big trip to Disney last 2 weeks of the year.
