2017 380th

1st time 5th wheel and Montana owner.

Information overload in full swing.
Planning to full time next year!

Here she is:
Checking weight distribution.
20 miles into the first 800 mile tow.
Dwarfs the truck even more in that view.

Now - since you are in the middle of info overload, maybe take a few minutes and jot down what you learned - this might be very beneficial for other soon to be owners then ask a few questions the experienced might be able to provide some though on.

This download has helped me move to the next level and keep it in perspective.

How were you checking weight distribution while sitting on a fuel island? I trucked for 20 years and never saw scales on a fuel island!

I don't know if that pump was operational.
But that was scale that weighed front and rear truck axles, trailer axles and total weight.
I've been there many times to weigh various loads.

It was a Flying J truck stop. I guess in your 20 years trucking, you were never at this place!

I've been posted some details on this thread on the 380/381THs

http://www.montanaowners.com/forums/...05#post1079405

Planning to keep posting issues and solutions in that thread while also learning from others with these models.
