Our 2012 does, so I would assume yours does too. They are forward adjusting brakes, unlike most autos and trucks with drums, that are backward adjusting.

If there are two slots covered by rubber plugs near the bottom of the backing plate (you have to crawl under the RV to see them), then you have self-adjusting brakes. I don't know exactly when Montana started using them but my 2012 has them. You should have them too.

Yes there are two rubber plugs on the back plate. And
It is a 2013 year model, so It must have the self adjusting
brakes. What a great place to get questions answered.
Thanks for the replies.
