Well we got her 6 days ago! We have named her “Untied Knott”. We also purchased a 2018 black F-250 power stroke which we named “Black Beauty”. We jumped in full force.
So far-
*Everything has gone quite well. Only one try each time of hooking up and unhooking. (Thanks Keystone for the step by step decal)
*We love ❤️ the 6 point auto leveling'
*Had some trouble figuring out the iN∑command system, but I think by George we got it. Synced it with iPhone. Only bad thing is you can only link 1 iOS but you can do 3 Androids???
* Next came the iRV media center with Insigna sound bar. Just as we think we have figured out, the next time it didn’t work.. (Definetely user error)
*ps Knott’s you have to have your headlights on to use the observation camera...
There is so much to learn
We do have a couple of questions for you seasoned Montana owners.
1. The outdoor kitchen wine cooler. Does it even cool anything? Seems like a waste of space. Doesn’t even keep water cool.
2. After emptying completely and moving to a different place, when you open the cap with the discharge closed there is a pretty large volume of water in line. It’s not dirty water. But it pours under the rv. Any ideas out there.
3. In advance thank you

Congrats and Welcome to the MOC family.

Most everyone has had to deal with the extra discharge after removing the discharge cap. The solution is to buy an add-on valve that twists on in place of the cap and then the cap twists back on the add on valve.

Thanks!

Thank you DarMar for the advise. We are still on our way back home, but the waste tank valve is in our shopping cart at Amazon (Along with a bunch of other things, we felt we just have to have) we are going to hit the buy button when we are two days from home.

One of them is a Magic Chef MCAR320B2 All Refrigerator, 3.2 cu.ft to replace the useless wine cooler. What a shame they would put something out there that only cools to 45 degrees. Not sure how we are going to do with it when we take it out.

Wine fridges only cool to 45f because that is the perfect tmp for white wine. Red wine matures best at 55f. But a wine fridge in a trailer equates to a cheap wine fridge unless the trailer is a full custom unit.
