This short thread highlights how horrendously poor is the printed documentation and instructions given to new owners by most RV companies. Heck, all it would take these days is a nice CD or DVD. Instead all of the forums are filled with perfectly good questions by new owners.

And then there are the dealers...

It would not hurt them to hand out a CD either.

The lights over the bed have the push lense, the lights over the front bunk have slide switches.

You are correct. I pushed on the lens and "let there be light".
Thanks

Amen...I've never bought a product before that was so poorly documented with instructions. Even the dealer doesn't know about some of the functions, switches, operations, etc. I think the mfr could at least give better manuals, either paper form or a CD. The owner's manual we got with our Forester was pretty much useless, since it was so generalized as to cover pretty much all motorhome models....no specifics for my model.

Sounds like the red and blue lines you found are the low point drains which are for draining down for winterization. There should be another fw tank drain besides those.

You would think so, wouldn't you.

No, FR does it differently, as described earlier.
