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...

I too have trouble with the T handle. I think either my valve was installed sloppily or it is poorly designed. On my rig, the valve angle where the pull rod exits actually points to the I frame...

I have used LT tires for 16 years now with no problems. I suppose if my rig weighed a little more, I would need ST tires.

I had my black tank replaced in 2016. The dealer said they couldn't find an exact replacement, but put in one with a slightly lower capacity. I don't boondock much so it works fine for me.

I have the removable TST's. I think mine lasted about 4 years or longer. I do remove them and keep them inside for 9 months a year, so that may help.
