New to Montana 5th Wheeling

My wife and I are very excited about our new to us 2021 3855BR, we have reached the point in our life where it will get lots of use and we’re looking forward to seeing the country we both served.
Unfortunately the PO did not have any manuals for us at purchase, where can we obtain hard copies before something inevitably breaks just outside of cellular service?

Welcome aboard! Sadly, the help provided by the manuals is marginal at best. You could take the time to look up the model numbers for your various components and download the manuals. When it comes to repairing something this forum or YouTube is often the best help. You could also find some general Keystone and Montana manuals on the Keystone site.

Congrats on your purchase. Drive safely and enjoy your travels.

Congratulations and welcome.

Here are some useful links
Manuals
https://www.keystonerv.com/owners-manuals

Keystone videos
https://www.keystonerv.com/owners-how-to

Also download the Lippert NOW app from Google play store. It has manuals, troubleshooting and TSBs.

Also in the files section you will find manuals for the water heater, furnace, fridge, etc.

Welcome to the forum! May your new rig bring you many years of wonderful memories. As stated above, most of us tossed the stuff that came with the rig and got real working info and downloaded it from the net.

Welcome to the forum from fellow Coloradoans. Hope you enjoy your Montana and are able to attend some gatherings. About 300 of us are in Goshen this week for the annual Montana fall rally. There are things going all over the country, and you can find them on the rally calendar. Best of luck.

Same model here only the 2020 version. I found the manuals provided to be less than useful. The individual component manuals are generally available online. In spite of having to learn how to repair a lot of things myself (full timer and no time to get the unit into a shop ever), I am enjoying it a lot. Lippert has been very helpful for the various components we've replaced or need to replace.

Thanks for your help, I will continue removing panels and taking pictures of manufacturers data plates. finding the hidden fuses and Checking/tightening every electrical connection. Water lines seem good, time for cutouts and sealing up the 6” holes used to run even the smallest item through the floor.

Hello fellow Colorado Montana owner, we did see there was a rally and we had picked up our trailer in Ohio but schedule didn’t allow for rally. Hoping to see you on the road after winter.

Thank you for the links, our last camper came with generic manuals so I was hoping Montana did better.

Montana basically does the same. They pass along whatever manuals come with the components they install. They don't make the components so are limited to whatever the manufacturer provides. My rig came with a satchel full of them
