I don't remember exact numbers, but FL batteries can be discharged something link 4-500 times. When you run them to 0, this knocks off a bunch down to like 300 times. Again numbers just guess/ball...

Almost all of my trim pieces are short. I made them put new ones on when I bought it because they were yellowed as the rig sat on dealers lot for 17 months (in AZ sun). I am pretty sure they had...

I put on flexarmor last fall. So don't know how it will hold up. The only drawback I can think of is warranty is voided if you cut into it at all. So if you have to replace the vents or skylights...

There are 2 kinds of seals. One are just the spongy rubber things that compress when the slide is closed. I think you are probably talking about the 2-3 inch flaps that fold in or out as the slide...

In addition to this exterior valve, I installed a clear 6 or 8 inch extension that twists on. Since this seems to rotate and or come loose, I put a small screw thru it to sort of permanently keep it...

I have wondered about this too. I think my old 2005 Montana had this, then by 2013 they had the lift up ones. Which work fine except under the bedroom slide. It can't lift that high and I hit my...

I think the furnace fan uses 10A or so. I figured it out when my batteries died at 8300 ft. The furnace seemed to be running about 3/4 of the time, so it used 7-8 amp per hour x 10 hours (8 pm to 6...

I thought Montanas went with 12 inch frames about 10-12 years ago. How can these flex that much. Or is the flex actually in the slideout?

Don't know if mentioned elsewhere here, but ST tires have a speed limit of 60 or 65 mph. Otherwise, seems like you had plenty of tire - 3 axles at 6800 lb each.

Rondo, do you have to add the foundation for the sleep number, or just put the air mattress stuff on top of the plywood of the bed? We have one at home, but wonder about one in the Monty?

I did as kowbra did. I think it was a metal pipe with those U shaped metal things on the wall that the pipe drops into. Not flimsy pipe or ends but real pipe stuff.

You won't draw all 16 amps all the time. My furnace draws 10, maybe 12 amp. And when I camped with temps 40 or lower and NO hookups, it ran about 75% of the time, so that is around 8-9 amp per hour...
