2006 3295RK test flight

Hello everyone, and thanks for all the information I was able to glean from just a few visits to this forum. Based on that info I bought a Montana for use at work in the northwest (I will live in the Montana two weeks at a time while flying helicopters on logging jobs). Did have a few glitches that I'll blame on keystone's ramp-up for Katrina. The stove was not secured, the battery wouldn't charge from the truck, one of the heater ducts oil cans when cycling from cold to hot and back again, the largest heater hose fell out of the floor duct during the trip home, and last but certainly not least, after 12 days in a row of rain in Detroit, OR I have a damp spot at the rear end of the dinette slide.

I moved to the Montana from an ancient Hitchhiker that gave me no trouble in 6 years of ownership. I suspect I'll experience the same reliability after some shakedown with Keystone.

Thanks again to all who take time to keep forums like this one up and informing.

Welcome, geezzr. You've got a nice unit and the right attitude. It takes a while to break these units in and then it should be smooth sailing. Best of all, Keystone is a very supportive company. You've got a very comfortable rig with a lot of storage. Enjoy!

Hi geezzr and Welcome to the MOC family.

That 3295RK has been a very popular model over the years so you will find no shortage of owners here on the MOC.

Glad you could join us, and congratulations on the new Montana. Nothing is perfect, and as stated above, it sounds like you are tackling your glitches with the right attitude. Enjoy your time in Oregon - I'm assuming you'll be west of the Cascades, we are on the east side. Safe travels.

Glad to see that the forum was helpful for you, and congratulations on your 3295! We absolutely love the space ours provides for us!

I must tip my hat to you for your positive attitude about the small problems. IT is SO easy to become bitter when they start—and sometimes quite justifiably—but your “roll with it” mindset is an inspiration.

Welcome and I agree with the others. Your positive attitude will work well in your favor. I'm sure your dealer and Keystone will get things fixed for you. Enjoy your new Montana.
Happy trails.....................

Yeah, what they all said!! That's what I found too a positive attitude is the best, I had a negative experience when I called Keystone, sent them an email with my concerns and they took care of me just like that! They really are a top notch company!

Welcome! We live in southern Oregon and have had no problems with our Montana. Hope you get the glitches out. We have a large helicopter facility located here in our area, as well.

Welcome aboard and congratulations on the new 3295RK! Sorry about the problems but hopefully those will be the end of it. At least there was nothing major. And you picked an excellent brand with a company that stands behind it.
