Any Alpine 3495FL owners out there?

We love our's but have run into a problem and I'm curious how many are out there.

I will fill you all in on the problem after I see what they're going to do or offer next week.

I would bet the Montana FL might have the same issue.

We have a new 2013 (or 2014, can't remember) we bought in June. Some minor fit and finish issues, but the only significant issue thus far is that the front A/C (Dometic) failed and had to be replaced. I was also surprised about the apparent design of the black tank, (sey Keystone forum posting) but I can't really call it an "issue".

I'm curious what your problem is, of course.

Yes, the black tank! I did a search on Keystones site and came up with nothing. I was really suprised that no one else had delt with this issue of a 32 gal black tank that only holds 29 gal after being advertized a 50, or maybe had just not figured it out yet. I will do a little more digging on the site.

I'm still dealing with Keystone on it, so as of now happy with the way it's going, even though I did all the research and threatening up front, after they claimed a misprint and a disclaimer on the site and offered me $400 to forget the problem SAY AGAIN, $400, LOLOL

This is a dry camping problem for us and I can see how alot that will be on full hookups will not care. For us, 3 days and 2 nights and we have to think about picking up and dumping. Not acceptable after being misled on the original specs for the price and size of the rig.

So, I researched the brand and model of the black tank and found they had one with the same frame dimension just deeper with the same drain fitting location that would still fit in the frame because they use the 10" beam at that point and the tank was 9" deep, holding 40 gallons. That was ok in my book and would give us another day or two. They Agreed and we are still working out the details.

We love the trailer and other then a couple delaminating doors and a slide switch that they fixed, I didn't want to have to sell it back to them, specialy after upgrading tires and wheels to the G614's, adding a hitch and a generator system. My Lawyer was ready to go after the Magnuson act on it though.

You mean the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act? Magnuson-Moss

There are so many disclaimers now that I wonder if anyone could win...

Well, yikes.
Just from the seat of my pants, the black tank in our coach is probably smaller than the advertised 50 gallons, but I've been more concerned about the flat black object (NSA spy probe?) in the tank directly beneath the toilet.

GL with your mission. Hopefully your relationship with your dealer will survive it, and you have many happy and event-free trips ahead.
