I'm picking up my new to me 1993 Ford E350 Tioga Class C. It has the 460 motor with the Overdrive Automatic transmission. Does anyone have or know where I can get any manuals? Even some mechanical specs would be nice. Oil type & amount, Same for transmission. Been camping all my life but this is my first drivable RV

And any help / manuals for the generator. I know it turns over but doesn't start. I'm guessing its a bad fuel line. Not picking it up until Saturday but I'm trying to be prepared.

This manual will give you much of the basic information.
Ford Manual
Look on genset for make and model along with series.

That Chilton manual will get you most of what you need. Maybe not the rear brakes. Engine is common and so is the E4OD transmission.

Bear in mind that a "1993" MoHo is very likely to be on a 1992 Ford Chassis. Makes a difference looking for specs and parts. You can tell by the VIN. Even the VIN looks like 1992, Fleetwood could have sold the RV as a 1993 and it should be titled as 1993.

Once you get Model and Serial Number for the Generator (and Spec Code if ONAN), post them and we can probably find you a manual.

Gas tank has to be at least 1/4 full to supply gas to generator. If it hasn't been run, carburetor is likely gummed up with varnish from stale gas.

There's also an RV maintenance manual that's actually pretty good, by Bob Livingston. Addresses a wide variety of items.

It helps if you state what generator you have. Given the age, it could be anything. Just a guess:

I've got a 1990 Winnebago Warrior. My generator also cranks but doesn't start. I'm debugging this weekend.

I found the quickest, easiest way to troubleshoot my Onan 4k on my old '83 Tioga, when I got it, was to disconnect the fuel line at the fuel pump on the genny. Very easy to get to. Then connect a fuel line to the fuel pump and drop the other end into a small gas can. If it runs like that, the problem is between the fuel pump and the tank. (BTW, easy way to run a high concentration of seafoam and gas thru the genny this way).

1. enough fuel in the tank? Genny pickup is higher than the engine pickup so the genny can't strand you by running the tank dry
2. Cracked or clogged lines between tank and genny? Blow backwards from genny to tank and listen for airflow into the tank or along the fuel lines for leaks.

If it doesn't run, is the fuel pump running? My old Onan fuel pump could both be heard and felt when running. When it quit, easy to detect. Also, easy to open up, unstick and clean up, return to service again, in my case.

If fuel pump runs but genny doesn't, then you need to refer to more detailed troubleshooting docs.

Good luck!

I found a digital version of the 1993 E350 cutaway chassis used for motorhomes manual on eBay it was around $25 to receive a flash drive for use. I just ordered it today. It also specifies it will not work with Apple products.

Any gas engine that won't start: Old or contaminated fuel that has gummed up the lines, fuel filter and carburetor.

Once you determine which model generator you have, use 'youtube' to find out the how to. That might be the only manual you'll need.

Once you get that genny running, keep running it regularly. Having a generator sit idle is the worse thing for it. They need regular exercise just like humans.
