UPDATE #2: I have forwarded the Lippert service bulletin to a Keystone CS person I have dealt with in the past. Let's see what happens.

I am pretty savvy about making the changes. I've spent a fair bit of time playing with race cars. I am also a bit of an agitator when things do not happen properly. Right now I want Keystone to acknowledge the problem and set up a recall for the breaker upgrade.

Again, I appreciate all the wisdom and help from this forum. Perhaps I will be able to contribute some of my knowledge in the future.

This has been one of those "Long Term Problems" and not confined to just Montana as we had the same issue with our previous SOB and originally on our 2010 Montana 2955 RL with just two Slides.

No isolated to Keystone either. Our previous FR 5th wheel had the same problem.

We were having the same problem with our '14 3625RL, both for the leveling system and slides. The circuit breaker was replaced with a new 50 amp breaker, when I picked up the trailer I tested it with the service advisor, it did it again. It couldn't even lift the front jacks while hooked up to the truck.

After much research, some hand wringing over batteries (they tried two new ones of theirs and it still did it) and a few calls to the manufacturer of the leveling systems, they checked the amperage draw of the pump when activated. They ended up replacing the pump, it was drawing well over 100 amps, which was causing the breaker to continuously pop and reset. This appears to have fixed the issue.

I have a brand new in box Never Installed 80 Amp breaker I ordered from Amazon, they want to much to return so I figured I would try to move it here! PM me if you need a spare for cost!
My present camper has a 150 Amp!

I have this problem on occasion. The simple fix is to do what loneoak said. Unless you are boondocking, first thing you should do upon arrival is hook up the unit to power and the last thing you do is disconnect from it when you are leaving. If boondocking do the same thing only with the umbilical cord attached to the running truck. I do this and have not had an issue.
