Jim just gave you some GREAT advice. If you have ST tires just get rid of them. Tires are the biggest topic on this forum in the summer months not just tires but blown tires and they are almost always blown ST tires. A lot of times take out the side of your camper they don't just blow.
I have pictures of Union Pass and if you would like I will Email you some.

I would like to see the photos. I have looked at the map of the area but can't find a camping spot at Union Pass area. I drove an 18 wheeler for awhile and the tire are always on you mind.
Thanks for the information.
Dennis

That was the second year production run of Montanas. Keystone was still in a learning curve with them. Hopefully it had the expansion joint kit installed in the front lower outside wall just forward of the bedroom slide cutout. Otherwise the fiberglass or actually Filon skin has or will crack diagonally towards the front. They also had a pretty wild cable actuated slide mechanism under the main slides. You may want to have a competent service center check its adjustment. The frames were not true rolled I-Beams but were what is called a welded plate I-beam. There was also a kit out that had to be welded on above the spring shackles that reinforced the frames in that area. You may want to check to se if that was done as well. A 16 year old RV with good decals ... now that's impressive! Many of us can't get 3-4 years out of ours.
Wow .... that's just the information I was looking for. I will have it checked out for sure. I don't see any cracks in the sidewalls so maybe I am lucky and the kits were installed ... the slides seem to work well but a bit slow... but slow is ok. Thanks again for the information.

You can have trouble with a frame on any fiver but it was much more common on the early units. I think the first Montanas dad 9 inch framers. Just keep a check on it.

For the bedroom TV I just installed a 19" with built in DVD player.
For the living room since the cut out is an exact fit with little inch to inch and a half on the left side clearance.

I was thinking about one of these. This is a spring time project for myself.

Then I can fit a larger TV and rotate it out of the way when traveling.
This will also open up the cabinet behind it for other storage.
To save yourself some trouble Have a look here.

That's the way I am leaning ... I think I can get a 32" in the living room on an arm and rotate it up and down to travel.
