We smelled the problem before we knew we had one.
Fluid was leaking from the rear seal of the axle on the right side. The smell was like burning tar. I thought at first it was the Montana.
Would have been dangerous to pull the unit back up route 81 to home here in NY. So there we were stuck in Va., useless cell phones, but thank goodness for OnStar.
Was able to contact our dealer, GM and they found us a dealer who could fix it in one day.
Had the exact same problem a few years ago with a brand new motor home, but had to leave that at a rest stop in PA. Fun backing two dogs, two cats, a cooler and what we could into a Saturn.
This time was better. Had my daughters there.
Campground owners didn't even offer to let us use their phone. Going to try to find another campground, Passport America or not, when we go back down this summer.
