I have recently purchased a 1985 Southwind and of course there were no manuals included. I was able to get a service manual from Fleetwood.
What I would like to have are the manuals for the furnace, water heater and refrigerator. The electrical system for these would be most helpful. I am having a difficult time getting them to operate and have checked and replaced all the fuses that I can find. My previous motorhome did not have electronic ignition and that is where I am having the problems.
I would pay to have the manuals copied and mailed. Any help in this area would certainly be appreciated.
I was fortunate to inherit my 1984 Winnebago from my dad who kept EVERY piece of paper associated with the RV. One cabinet is completely filled with documentation he kept. I don't know about Fleetwood, but Winn. didn't print a manual for all the appliances. They are separate manuals from the appliance manufacturers that Winnebago collected and were given to my dad in a large zippered pouch. For example Coleman for the A/C, etc. What I suggest is get the model for the appliance you need the manual for and contact that manufacturer, not Fleetwood. We also have been having to do some repairs that aren't included in the the original owners manuals. For example, the vacuum tubes attached to the back of the heater/defrost controller on the dash became brittle and broke. We bought a replacement harness, but didn't know which to connect to which connector. We also thought our alternator problems were related to the isolater. We couldn't find it, to check it out. Winnebago faxed us a diagram that showed we didn't have one, but they had a series of switches and solenoids on the wall of the battery compartment. We just call Winnebago, give them the RV's serial number and they fax us the skematics we need. If you know exactly what you need, you may wish to try Fleetwood and see if they can fax it to you. My husband keeps wishing they would just send us the entire file, but they only send the ones we need. Good Luck and enjoy. I know we enjoy our "old" Winnie
We also purchased an older motorhome without manuals. I was able to get most everything by calling the manufacturers. Have your model and serial numbers ready so they can send you the right manuals. Most are free, a few had a minimal charge.
