RE: Splendide washer/dryer issues

That probably explains the water cycling during drying cycle. It actually uses cool water to condense the heated water vapor as part of the drying cycle and drains off that excess water. But water on the floor is not normal.

RE: Splendide washer/dryer issues

Small amount of water in the tub during wash is normal. Front loaders don't use much water. Our water pump will cycle on off during rinse mode. But not during dry mode. And of course water on floor is not normal. Is yours vented or ventless?

RE: F250 or F350

The difference in cost of an F250 vs an F350 is about $1,000 or less. Compared to the total price of the trucks that is minimal. We have a 2012 F350 FX4 and, yes, it is pretty high up. But with the wide running boards, standard I think on the King Ranch, and grab handles even the DW at 5'-4" has no problem getting in it. Two wheel drive trucks are shorter. If you are confident you will never go heavier or larger, then go with the F250 if it seems to fit better. If there is any doubt in your mind that you might someday move up a notch or two, then go with the F350.

RE: Are trailer brakes working??

I jack a tire slightly off the ground, pull the emergency cable, rotate the tire to see if it locks, put the emergency cable back in, lower the tire, and repeat with the other 3. After verifying all 4, I hook up to the truck, start rolling 4-5 mph, and manually activate the brake controller to make sure the truck controller is working correctly. Gravel at the storage facility so when I activate the controller to max the tires easily skid. When I have a chance, I do the same on pavement to make sure of the stopping power. When I noticed my brakes getting weak like that, I adjusted the brakes (manual adjustment) and there was a major difference in stopping power.

RE: Removing bugs from front cap

Try a dryer sheet. Wet it first. Works great. I save some used ones when DW does laundry.

RE: Bedrug Review.. An Opinion..

I had one in my 2004 F250 long bed with a fiberglass tonneau cover. Really liked it. I did not haul much in the way of heavy or abrasive stuff in the bed, but after 3 years it still looked great. But after buying a 5er and a new truck, I went to a spray in bed liner. But I would also recommend the Bed Rug in the right circumstances.

What are the ramifications of removing it:h Eliminating overload protection and the possibility of melted wires and possible fire.

RE: Manufacturers offering king beds in older 5ers

Not sure how far back they go, but our 2007 Montana has a king bed. I think they put them in earlier years also, as an option.

If the truck has a payload rating in excess of the pin weight of the trailer and your expected load in the truck, you will be fine. Stability will not be a problem. There are those dually enthusiast on here who claim you will risking your life and the lives of all those around you if you do not have a dually no matter what you are towing.

RE: TPMS gauge which ones are good

The are 3-4 brands that get pretty good reviews, TST 507 being the most popular it seems. That is what I have and very happy with it. The TST 507 has user replaceable batterys. And you can get either standard sensors, or flow thru sensors that allow you to add/remove air without removing the sensors. But some have said that adding air thru the flow thru sensor is so slow it is easier to take them off if you need more than a few pounds of air. I have the standard sensors, and since I only need to add 2-3 lbs air in the spring and am good for the season, the standard ones work fine for me. The flow thru sensors are also larger and heavier.

Definitely an auto reset circuit breaker. And as mentioned, inexpensive. Or maybe cheap is a better description. Here is what one looks like inside. This one burned the contacts. http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac270/BB_TX/100_1118.jpg width=640

RE: Not Able To Assist

Just for clarity, please define "spot that made us very uncomfortable". Was that on a highway or street somewhere? Or some other location?

RE: King pin stabilizer jack

As most above, I would skip it and install stabilizers. Used my tripod one year, installed JTs, and sold the tripod. No comparison. If you do get one, get the heaviest duty one you can find.

RE: High altitude & cloud-free camping in mid-August?

High altitude cool and minimal clouds may be mutually exclusive. Certainly not in southern Colorado during that time frame. Probably have to go far enough north to get away from that tropical air flow over the southwestern states and the associated heat.

RE: ATVs or ORVs in Campgrounds?

From what I have seen, prohibiting ATV riding inside the RV park is common. And for that I am happy. While I have nothing against them in general (I have one), I do have a problem with people running back and forth thru the park for no particular reason other than joy riding. And even more so for those who allow their underage kids to ride them unsupervised. And I am sure these are the reasons for more restrictive rules. Some even only permit motorcycles be ridden between your site and the entrance.

RE: stopped up sink.

The regular Montanas have a separate galley tank for the kitchen sink if that is the sink you are talking about. The pull handle for my galley tank is just in front of the street side wheels. On some models it is between or behind the wheels. Look around and see if you have a galley tank pull handle.

RE: Black tank flush system leaking

Fittings could also be bad. But valve failures are also common. Here is a picture of the black tank flush anti-siphon/vacuum breaker valve from my Montana. And if you look closely you can see cracks running all thru the valve. http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac270/BB_TX/Camper/valve.jpg

RE: Fort Wilderness in July

Kids??? Probably more difficult with young kids when that hot. Older kids generally seem to take it better. There are some indoor air conditioned attractions/shows that you can slip into for cool down breaks. But waiting outside rides in long lines can be miserable. All that pavement and close confines with all the buildings blocking the wind leads to excessive heat.

RE: Black tank flush system leaking

Mine did the same thing, leaked all over the floor. Common problem with black tank flush systems. But my antisiphon/vacuum breaker valve was inside a wall behind the shower. Fortunately I could get to it by cutting a hole in the back wall of a cabinet on the opposite side of that shower wall. Join the Montana Owners Club (MOC) forum for all questions about your Montana. Lots of expertise, experience, and friendly folks there.

RE: A little help needed.

Mine has two small (1/2"?) tubes hanging down a few inches underneath below where the water hookups are. But the valves for them are inside the baggage compartment door where the water hose connects (convenience center on mine).
