My 2013 Keystone Montana has similar sounding problems In the livingroom area. I think there are too many lights on the switches and wiring is not heavy enough. Poorly designed product with cheep fixtures that overheat. A totally deceitfull dealership with morons for a service department.

Bite the bullet and replace with LED lights or LED light fixtures--you should never have to replace one again, nor worry about heat.

I'm in the process of replacing the factory incandescent lights with LEDs in our Montana. I've done 24 so far. What I'm finding is I can replace 2 for 1 LED in most places and still have plenty of light. I don't have to look very hard to see which fixtures have been used the most.

Our Spree TT was the same way so this isn't a problem unique to Keystone.

I ask this because there were LEDs in our Keystone that were getting warm enough to melt their solder and fail... As no Keystone dealer had time to look at it (on the road) - LED manufacturer stepped up. Replacements were fine.
