Hey everyone! My name is Kirkman. My wife and I just bought a 1978 Dodge Class C Brougham.. I've seen on a lot of forums that owners are having trouble finding manuals etc.. This thing came with ALL of it in wonderful shape. Anyway, I'd be happy to send off copies etc if anyone needs them! It is a 7.2 liter 440. I also have manuals for the shureflo water system/pump and duo therm 915 model and Wedgwood fridge. I have the original brougham user manual as well. I'm pretty stoked!

Happy trails!
-John and Kristin Kirkman

Enjoy the motorhome.

There is a chance that the distributor is not working at the correct level anymore. Stretched springs, leaking vacuum advance, and other things can prevent the RV from making the power that it should .

A place like "Clutches Unlimited" in Midway City CA can rebuild the distributor and make at least as much power as it made when new.

Check the rims. Probably do not have the R - for Radial rims with a circle around it (indicating that Radial tires are acceptable for this style rim! ) The first generation of radial rims had some problems, and could not use radial tires to their 'full rated' capacity listed on the rim. Later designs had more weight capacity, and have a circle around the R.

Good luck!

Fred.

Hello!

I myself purchased the same RV today! Mine, unfortunately, did not come with the manual. Any chance you could share with me? It would be a huge help, as the previous owner knew next to nothing about the vehicle and it is going to be a fixer upper!

I hope you enjoy the Dodge Brougham as much as we did with our first motorhome. Ours was a 1977 Dodge Brougham 22'. Had a few issues with it on the road but nothing serious. I hope you have an Edelbrock carb on yours. After I installed the Edelbrock carb, it was rock solid reliable. Over the years, I installed the carb, then the Performer intake manifold and finally headers. It was probably the most over-powered 22' Class C on the road. We absolutely loved it. Drove it 5 years then bought a 1987 Minnie Winnie.

Hello!

I hope you are enjoying your RV! My fiance and I recently purchased the exact same one and have been renovating it for several months. Is there any chance I could get a copy of any manuals you have? We haven't been able to find them anywhere. Thanks in advance!

Has anyone heard from YoungNomads? I could really use these manuals!!!! I sent a private message but seeing as the original posting was from back in 14' I'm worried they won't respond.

My partner and I just purchased a 1978 Dodge Brougham RV without any manual or history. I would very much like it if I could receive a copy of the manual. Please email me at caroleburr63@gmail.com. Thank you
