RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

It was supposed to have been moved to the work area on Friday, but I haven't gotten an email saying it was done, so I'm not sure if it was started on. While discussing this on FB with other Montana owners, I had three more contact me with the same issue, so I am not alone now. Two of them are the sister model to mine the 3791RD and the other is a front living 3711 which has two front slides as opposed to my one. All of them are flexing on the left front between the slide and the nose. My fear is they will not take the nose loose, slide out and peel back the side a bit so they can actually see the roof try to pick up before the floor does when it is lifted by the pin. I'm betting they will only shoot the new glue up under the side panel and shoot the 5 screws in the side and call it a day.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

The unit arrived in Goshen after hours on Friday. It was being checked in at the factory today.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

I understand what you are saying and I brought up this very point to the Montana management member handling my case. I was told that once it is in the system as being brought back for a repair such as this, that if I had a problem later such as delamination in the area or another break in the area, that it would be covered. I asked to get that in writing and was told it would be no problem. Before I get too comfortable, I would like to see the documents on how it was handled and what actually was done at the factory.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

We have been contemplating that as well. However, most of us realize that it's a **** shoot with any other manufacturer, or individual trailer. I guess we will be waiting to see what the final cause and fix is. My concern is how long they will have it.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

The unit was picked up from the dealer at 5pm yesterday afternoon for it's trip back to the factory. It was completely unloaded, winterized and readied for the trip. We'll see what is up with it when as it is scheduled to be started on on the 17th. Here is a pic of her just before we headed out of the driveway on the way to the dealer. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20170205_120423664_zpsxy9xad8p.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: 2016/2017 Montana Insulation & A/C Question

Does your unit have the extra large returns for the A/C units? I believe that is one of the changes that started mid-year '16. Several have no complaints with those units. Others have had crushed ducting that contributed to the problem. The fact that angers me the most is that the Sandpiper I sold to my work partner's daughter was parked next to us in Myrtle Beach this past summer and that unit stayed perfectly cool while we were unable to keep the unit at 8* below ambient air. Yes, both in full sunlight all day. That unit is stark white while our unit is the new beige. So a little color variation and ours has no black on the nose, only the slide toppers. I truly miss the rapid cool of the older units. I'm one that doesn't care if it was a little more noisy. Another thing that was upsetting, was in June we went to Wisconsin and had a friend of mine with my EXACT unit sitting beside mine and his cooled great. That' part of the reason it is going back to the factory. No one can explain what is happening around here.

RE: 2016/2017 Montana Insulation & A/C Question

Our Montana 3790RD is scheduled to go back to the factory on Feb 7th to have them test and correct the airflow problems we've had with our unit since we took delivery in April. NOT a fan of the new Whisper design at all. Very little airflow out of the vents. Removing the vent covers helps some, but not much. The Georgia/South Carolina heat has won every trip so far with 50A and I won't even mention on 30A. We have been severely disappointed in ours. Your mileage may vary. And yes, over on the Montana forum, is several more just like us.

RE: Undercover Swing Case Tool Box

While I was getting something out of the bed I realized this would interfere with the factory wire plug if I put it on the drivers side. On the passenger side I have a step mounted to the tail gate but need to look it over to see if they would interfere with each other or maybe work to some degree. Bingo! I know a few that have used the case on the driver's side, but they relocated the 7way plug to the tailgate. Tedious, but it's all in what you want.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

I talked to the one who is scheduling the return trip today. Actually the unit has to be at the dealer on Feb. 6th for them to pick it up on the 7th. The scheduled days to work on it are the 15th-18th. Everything has to be out of the unit. They were more worried about the AC units not cooling the unit than the flex!!! I finally asked them how in the world would they test the AC units in FEB?? She said it was easy to do. :-huh:-huh Then the unit's side will be fixed as well as the inside banister and right rear skirting. The unit will then be sent to the "rain bay" and tested for water leaks with the slides closed, then open. If it passes, it will then be thoroughly cleaned and then shipped back. They will be emailing me the steps I have to do to ready it for transport. I'll pass the unusual stuff along if there is anything. Just wanted to update you guys.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

Thats good news after 4 months of negotiations. I'm glad someone there finally took an interest in it. Yes, you are correct. It's been a long time coming.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

Talked with the Keystone manager assigned to my rig today. The unit will be taken back to Indiana the middle of January for repairs.

RE: Cold nights in Branson

Definitely disconnect your outside water line. The hose line will freeze solid. And remember that running electric heaters will not circulate warm air to the underbelly area. That's why I would run the propane furnace. Turn on only one propane tank and leave the other 'off'. That way you will know when to refill the bottle you use. Excellent advice!!!

RE: Your Rig

Just pick up our rig this weekend. Took her out for 1 night and then put it in storage. http://i.imgur.com/vPNcTDsl.jpg Beautiful rig. May you have much better luck with yours than I have with mine.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

Our 5er shopping this winter was going to include a Montana model. I'm glad I've read this now. Hope all works out for you. I still say that you will get a bad one every now and then, what gets me is how long it took to get management involved.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

I just returned from the dealer a few ago. The new gun to inject the newer style Loctite 8100 epoxy, and the epoxy are in. The plan is to take the rig there next Tuesday, Monday if I have enough time, for the repair attempt. This time, the lower trim will be removed and the sidewall separated a bit from the beam and then this new epoxy will be shot up between the beam and the sidewall, then screwed every 5" across the floating area. And these screws are #10 sheet metal screws they've sent! Let it cure for 36 hours and then reinstall lower trim. What is different is that this repair will take place with the weight on the pinbox instead of the jacks! When I stepped in the door from getting home from the dealer, the phone rang and it was a member of Keystone management!:) She was very kind and direct. They are planning on this repair working as of now, but do not have a next step planned in case of failure. That being said, she apologized for the length of time the unit has been at the dealer as well as the AC issues that we've talked about before. She had just got off of the phone with my service manager and then called me. She asked multiple questions about the cooling of the unit and what all had been done to try to fix it. I was pretty direct with her when I told her that this conversation would've been nice if we'd had it back during July when it was so damned hot! She wants the unit back at the dealer for a 12 step test on each unit AGAIN! Again, I asked her how they planned to tell the effectiveness of the units with it 50* outside!! I reiterated that the unit just does NOT flow air and gave Roy's as an example. Identical units sitting side by side in moderate heat with one cool and one not. Told her that I'm glad someone in upper management is now involved as I was not pleased at all with this unit at all. She vowed to get the unit repaired on all issues. So, we'll see how this goes starting next week. I will keep you updated.

RE: Pickin up the new one Friday!!

Congrats on the purchase. You now have the same rig as we do, except yours has the residential fridge. I hope you enjoy it. We love the floor plan and the rig, except for a continuing problem we have. EXAMINE your rig very well with it on and off of the truck! We are still battling after 4 months to get ours repaired. NOT saying you will have the same problem, just beware. Ours hopefully is just a fluke. But if you would like to read up on the problem, here it is. Broken welds in walls There are MANY out there that are just fine. I sincerely hope you enjoy your camper. As stated, we love the camper itself, just not the communications with the company that made it. Happy camping!

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

Have you looked into the Lemon Law options in your state? Friends of ours had their 2012 Shadow Cruiser Lemon Lawed and were given a brand new one in 2014. There are no Lemon Laws for RVs in Georgia unfortunately.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

Well, I talked with the GM of the dealer this morning when I took the camper in for the InCommand system and AC unit boards.(which were repaired and working now). He was just as nonchalant as normal. My salesman walked up too and has known all about the problems. When he saw I was getting upset with the GM, he said that he would go above the GM to the owner. I've spoken to the owner before and she is aware of the problem. She was not at the dealer today, so the salesman went and gathered up all the warranty info and how many times it has been to the dealer so far and put in a file and put it on her desk. He then called the owner at home and told her what has happened now. She asked for the things that my salesman had already done, and said she would call the VP of Montana Monday morning. She was upset at the fact that the GM hadn't told her that it had broken again. This is the third NEW camper I've bought from her in 6 years, and she told the salesman she would do whatever she had to to get it taken care of. THIS MOVE P***** OFF THE GM! Now, I'll have to deal with his butt-hurt attitude next time, which I don't mind at all:-X06 You are correct in saying that this post has cost them campers. I talked with a forum member here that lives about 30 miles from me last week. He had read the forum and he and his wife decided not to buy a Montana due to this here. He knows me pretty well as we have both had Sandpipers for years from this dealership. They are buying a Jayco Pinnacle with nearly the same floor plan. OH, and get this!!! The service manager called Montana again today while I was there. He asked what the dealer should do next. AGAIN, they said they could do nothing without PICTURES! He nearly lost it!! He said, "Look in the d*** file and you will see the same d*** thing I am looking at here!" So they asked him to pull the unit back inside and take off the trim around the overhang and take pics again. He did and they were sent before I left. I am giving them until next week to get me an answer or I am going to become very difficult to deal with. I am OVER this camper and would love to get rid of the **** thing for good but I know it would cost me WAY too much money. So, if it's not settled soon, I will seek other options. I believe I have been more than fair.
