Hello from Dean & Diane

We have just gone back to 5th wheel unit after having motorhomes for several years.

Just purchased a 2008 Montana 3075 and and 2007 Chev 2500 crew cab with the Duramax and Allison.

We picked up the truck 2 weeks ago and the Montana on the 14th. We are now on our way from WI to CO and have found both units a joy.

Just developed a problem with the Montana. The landing gear will not operate with the electric motor and had to crank them down today. Hope it is nothing more that a fuse.

So far on this trip we are averaging 10.8 MPG with the truck.

We found this Club in the Keystone literature and have already found it to be a great place for information.

Dean & Diane

A hearty welcome to the forum. The landing jacks do have a fuse that is a common problematic area. On ours there is a 30 amp blade fuse in the battery compartment that is a little hard to find since it is located in an enclosed holder. I keep a few of those fuses on hand at all times. Some units have 40 amp fuses, so a little investigation is necessary. A word of advice that I learned the hard way: Do not lift truck with front legs, fuse will blow; do not quickly reverse motor, fuse will blow, do not over-retract legs, fuse will blow. Haven't done the first, but the second two, I do have first-hand experience with. Good luck and enjoy a fine combination.

Dean & Diane...Welcome to MOC and congratulations on your new toys. This is a great club and great site for information as you've already found out. Better than that, like one of our other members Margee says, "the MOC isn't just a group of people, it's family", or something like that.

Welcome to the forum. Somehow I get the feeling that Keystone owns shares is a fuse company. Ours is a tube fuse hidden in a covered wire loom. Guess how I know? I am guilty of one of the above.

Bingo,
Where is the fuse located? Samuel has blown the fuse and can't find it. Such a bother to have to get the hand jack out.
Thanks, Salle

In the battery compartment. look for an enclosed fuse holder, someone posted a picture before, I'll see if I can find it and post the thread.
