We have a 2015 3790RD. Does anyone have dust problems with their Montana? If we have to travel on gravel roads due to road construction we end up getting almost a half of a dust pan full of dust on the floor by the fridge and along the dinette. Dealer can't figure out where it's getting in and Keystone has been no help either. A little bit of dust we could understand as dust gets in everywhere but this amount is unreasonable after traveling 5 to 6 miles on gravel. Does anyone else have this problem?

Seems like maybe when your slides are in they aren't making a good seal on the bottoms.

On our 2010 there was a lower seal on the rear slides that was held on to the frame by a screw in the front and the back and was peal and stick inbetween. The peal and stick part didn't hold so they were just hanging there about an inch low held by the screws. I used 3m trip tape to put it back on and they were still on when I traded three years later. It was on the rig, not the slide.

Where do you put the swifter to keep the dust from coming in?

We have not had a major dust issue with any of our units. However I do go around and caulk all the exposed openings as soon as we get the unit home . In some instances I have used tape. A seal failure as mentioned could certainly be a cause for your issue.
