2017 3921FB Monty Upgrades

We’ve now owned our Monty 4 years this month and have thoroughly enjoyed our adventures. Over the course of that 4 years we’ve made several changes and what we believe to be improvements and thought it was time to share with those on the Forum. Below are the additions or changes;

2 Renogy 100 watts solar expansion kits
connected in series (Amazon)

MaxxAir vent covers with EZ clip
Dometic CFX-50US Refrigerator/Freezer located in front compartment where generator would normally be.
RV SnapPad all 6 jacks and raised center and rear jacks for better clearance.

That's quite a list. What is your opinion on the xFactor cross members? I'm considering them on my rig since it looks like it may be a year or two before I can get IS installed. BTW, is that St. Augustine, FL? I'm in Jacksonville.

I highly recommend it, it really does seem to reduce frame flex at the axles. It’s also a job you can do yourself.

Sounds like you're on top of it and now have yourself a great rig.
