We used to have a 24’ bumper tow travel trailer. We went to Yellowstone and decided the TT got too small in just 2 days.

We looked around and bought a 37’, 5th wheel Montana Big Sky in Montana. It’s a 2009 Anniversary Edition. We received all the books from the first owner, but felt the owner’s manual to be lacking a lot of details.

We knew the 5th wheel had some problems, but are willing to tackle them.

The refrigerator gave us error codes after our third trip. A simple magnet allowed us to reset the overheating sensor, and now works fine.

Our laundry cabinet and toilet room doors drag on the floors and top edges.

12v lights over the sofa slide out do not work.

Mirrored closet doors are each missing a top roller.

Some European cabinet hinges need adjustment.

We tried to use the black tank cleaning spray, but immediately water came from the wall on backside of the shower.

Between trips I discovered the hidden compartment on side of dresser in the bedroom.

We need to put A/C in the bedroom.

Plan to replace carpeting.

Welcome to the forum! Your water problem is most likely from a backflow preventer whose failure is a common problem. Some of us have just eliminated it and gone with an external one and others have replaced the cheap plastic one with a metal one from a box store. Many threads on that here.
