After reading some of these posts about inverter, I have a question. Do the newer Montanas have an inverter that feeds many/most of the 120v outlets in the rig when shore power goes out?

I think in 2021 the Super Solar started and included an inverter to run most or all of the outlets and things in the rig except the AC and water heater. I only have the Jaboni solar prep in my 2019, so I'm not sure.

Our 2021 3121RL is not super solar equipped. It has the residential fridge. Those trailers have a 2000w magnum dimensions inverter that, through a separate remote transfer switch, powers 5 electrical outlets throughout the trailer when the power goes out and while towing. Naturally the fridge plugs into one of those. The others are:
One in the bedroom, one behind the theater seats, one of the “ pop-up” counter top outlets to the right of the stove and the television in the living area. Our 5er is a “standard” issue, no solar panels model. The 2022’s were the first year of keystone’s solar package that has a 200w panel as a standard feature. Our trailer came standard with “solar prep”. Keystone was working with Jaboni at that time, and wiring is installed from the batteries to a wire bundle behind the basement wall and up to the dock on the roof. As I understand it, the prep is designed to handle installation of a 30 amp controller.
We use our trailer primarily as a winter home in the south in RV parks and campgrounds with hookups. We only use it occasionally in the summer (maybe 3 times) up here in NY and this setup seems to work well for us.
It’s difficult to know what others have in their trailers and therefore difficult to help others troubleshoot because it seems that Keystone was/is making changes every year and sometimes during model years to these systems and others. There are also differences in Legacy and High Country as well, my usual disclaimer is “this is what I have, ymmv”

I wish I had a CPAP shelf! They really need them in all rigs on both sides IMO.

We replaced one of my USB ports next to the head of the bed with a car lighter adapter and that runs from the battery in case the power goes out. Got it on Amazon and it was reasonable and easy to do. A friend at last year's National Rally showed us how to do it. Waking up gasping for air is no fun - but better than not waking up!

The solar flex 400 and up have 2000 watt inverters. They only control about 7 outlets. TV's , recliners, near the stove, both Res and non res fridges. BUT NO Cpap.....
