2018 Montana axles

Anyone know what axles are used in the new Montana? Lippert or Dexter?

Thanks for the quick response. We are looking to acquire our first 5r. Looking at SOB, I've found a long trail of years of unresolved leaking seals on Lippert axles. We are looking at a 3791RD as well as similar from other manufacturers.

Pretty sure Lippert has always used dexter axles, as do a majority of other manufacturers. At least for us over the years, axles are one thing we have never had a problem with. I have heard of folks damaging their seals by either reusing during a bearing repack, or using an electric or compressor grease gun with the EZ hubs. Neither of those can be blamed on dexter.
