RE: Slideouts stop and start

They are actually auto reset circuit breakers. And that is a common problem with them. Cheap (and cheaply made) and easy to replace. Available at RV stores and many auto parts stores. If you are not already a member, join the Montana Owners Club forum for all things Montana.

RE: Different forces acting on axles?

You click on advanced post form below. When that opens there is an icon (labeled link if you move your cursor over it) to click on. You put in the url, give it a name, and click finished. The same form will open if you quote someone.

RE: Which is easier to maneuver, 25ft+20ft, or pickup+30ft FW?

Because a 5th wheel pivot point in above the rear axle and it tracks inside the wheel tracks of the truck, you cannot take as tight of a turn as a bumper pull. Think of semis that have to swing wide on tight corners to avoid jumping the curb. With bumper pulls and the pivot point behind the tow vehicle, it lessens that problem. Difference in trailer lengths also factors into the turn.

RE: How far do you go in a day?

I don't particularly like to but we do 10-11 hour days occasionally if we have to due to schedule.

RE: Camping World SALE pricing

Same around here. Ethanol alcohol based antifreeze is much cheaper than propylene glycol based. Make sure you are not comparing apples to oranges.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

Sounds as though you are looking at a used truck that already has the rails installed. Correct? If so, do you know what hitch was previously installed?

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

Probably someone with no gauge, or did not take the time to find it. Yep, that looks about right.

RE: Electric fireplace

GFCI outlets are designed to trip due to ground faults, not over current. Your "little medical machine" may have a problem. Try it and see if it trips it again.

RE: Electric fireplace

I too would expect a separate breaker. Check all breakers. When a breaker is tripped it is not obvious as the handle does not flip all the way to the OFF position. It just moves slightly off of the ON position. If you are not getting any lights on the front panel then no doubt it does not have power. Could be breaker, could be plug came out, could be a loose wire, could be a bad power switch. If you can not find a tripped breaker or tripped GFCI plug, then look around the edges of the fireplace to see if there are screws that can be removed to allow the fireplace to pull out and let you see the power cord behind, assuming you are comfortable messing with electricity and such.

RE: Anybody have a f350 crew cab with 20 inch wheels

I have a 2012 F350 FX4 crew cab long bed with 20" wheels. It is right at 38" to the bed, and 57 1/2" to the top of the bed rails at the very rear, the highest point. I have the Reese Elite hitch that fits the Ford factory hitch prep. I had to drop it to the lowest holes. The 5er still sits a tad nose high, but not enough to be a concern. I also have a 5th Airborne air ride pin box that is a little taller than the OEM pin box and that contributes to some of that height.

Could be the phone, but could be some change in their local coverage that caused the problem since you did have it at one time but no longer. We had AT&T several years ago. We made an annual trip to south central Colorado every year. We got very weak service at the campground (about 5 miles from town) but great signal in town. But others with AT&T got reasonable service at the campground. Upon returning home we went to an AT&T store, explained the problem, and they suggested new phones (surprise, surprise), and recommended specific models. Well the next time we went to the same campground, not only could we not get signal at the campground, we could not get it in town either. Called AT&T and explained the problem. Their first reply was that they do not provide service to that area. When I explained that I had got service there previously (as noted by ATT on the phone screen), they could not explain it. I asked for different model phones to replace the new ones that did not work where our old ones did. Then their basic reply was, sorry, you were the ones who decided to buy new phones. But they would be glad to sell us different new ones. Went to Verizon and never regretted it. Much better coverage at that campground and every where else we have ever been.

RE: AVOID Shell station selling tires & gas in Wells NV

Don't understand what you mean by "new" owner (in quotes).New or not? And you say "it appears there are still problems". Are there or not? Unless you can be sure of both I think caution would be better than AVOID.

RE: Diesels...Ford vs GMC vs Dodge

Easy answer. They are all so close it is only personal preference.

RE: Decals!!!

Check with Winnebago to see if replacement graphics are available. Some manufacturere with supply new graphics free, but you have to pay to have them installed or do it yourself.

RE: where do you put your bikes?

I used to remove the front wheels and lay two bikes in the bed of the truck in front of the hitch. And sometimes another behind it. Built a pin box receiver for the bike rack to free up the bed.

RE: Water problem ,,, need help ASAP

That second leak may have just been water from the first leak that had run under/thru unseen areas til it found a way out.

RE: Air Conditioner Keystone Montana

If you are not already a member of the Montana Owners Club (MOC) forum go there and ask your question. Lots of Montana expertise there.
