Smile Tips and Tricks

Hi Guys...
I am beyond excited for our first trip with the new RV.
We are not new to the RV world, but this is our 1st Montana.
I learn new things every year, but I'm an open person willing to learn anything I can from all you Montana Masters....
PLEASE give me your best RV tips and tricks...

Since you are not new to RVing, the Montana should not be much, if any, different than what you already know.

Tip??? Relax and enjoy.
And welcome to the forum.

Be darned handy with hand tools, have a basic knowledge of plumbing, electrical troubleshooting, and propane use. Carry some basic hand tools always along with a multimeter, tire gauge, bottle jack, torque wrench, and some fashion of an air compressor. I read the part about this not being your first rodeo, but you'll not regret following what I mentioned above. Buy a surge protector.

Check the brand of tires on that monster, take a torque wrench to the ubolts to make sure they are to spec, make sure you grease zerks on suspension, if you have a washer onboard, check to make sure it drains where you think it does...don't believe any sticker you find saying it drains to xxxx, if rv fridge dig out installation manual then compare metal ducting behind top vent cover to make sure it meets manufacturer specs, if tetford toilet change out with dometic 310 or 320, and so forth....
