Montana High Country

We bought a High Country and each time my husband opened the waste water cap gray water flowed out. We just found out that the handle to empty that tank was open. Why would they mount that under the trailer when all of the other handles are conveniently located in the access panel? This handle is for the kitchen sink gray water tank. Is there something wrong with our trailer or is this the intended design?

I don't know the design of your RV, but the handle and it's cabling might have to be located at that spot. I'm not sure how the valve is being left open. Are you saying it opens from road bumps or a mischievous person? If it's just vibration, anchor a bungee cord that can hold the handle in the closed position.

If it's a person doing it, hook the stinky slinky to the drain and string it underneath so anyone opening it will directly be on the feet of the vandal.

While I don't have a Montana I do have a similar setup. It is intended and I suspect due to tank placements in the frame and it's probably easier to run the cables.

No that is intended. It is a head knocker and knee dirt valve. Have yu checked for leaks in the drains and were your drain valves mislabelled. I have a 2016 HC 375 FL

My High Country 351BH has a separate set of valves for the rear bath/kitchen sink and front bath.
Front bath valve handles are in the convenience center and rear valves are located way at the back of the living room slide, in the side of the frame.

Welcome! Our '14 305rl has the same setup as yours. Dumb location for the galley drain.

We have the 2016 305RL High Country and it is the same way. No problems with mine so far.
