2015 Montana High Country

Need help with new 2015 Montana High Country because the dealer and Keystone are not helping both are saying that it is normal for their units.

I can not get fresh water to stay in the tank while traveling, the water runs out the tank vent I have tried to make two trips, one 200 miles all interstate except 14 miles and lost all but 1/3 of a tank when I arrived. Second trip was 400 miles all interstate except 30 miles this time had another camper following me and he said that every time I went up a hill water run out the vent leaving a water trail on the road he said it was stilling running out when we turned into our camping area and the gauge read 1/3 of a tank, loosing 2/3 of a tank of fresh water can not be normal.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to correct this issues with a fifth wheel, I have had two other travel trailers and never had this issue with them and went to the same locations.

This is NOT normal for any RV. Something's plumbed wrong somewhere and I cannot believe Keystone would say that. I think your dealer is the one full of BS.

E mail trailer life mag and tell them , l assure you that somone at keystone will be calling. That is the biggest line of BS from a manufacture ( no less) that l have heard in a long time. I am sure the cars behind you enjoyed the shower.

Montana High Country water runs out fresh water vent

Got the water problem fixed on my new Montana with the help of Good Sam's. Dealer found that Keystone installed the fresh water tank vent even with the bottom of the tank. The vent had to be relocated about 12 inches higher to prevent water from running out the vent when going up hills.
