First time motorhome owner

Just purchased 2004 255 Lexington and joined the forum. Will probably need plenty of input as I try to learn the systems. Have been a long time camper - last owned a 2004 28' Forrest River Salem LE travel trailer (now for sale!)

Welcome... You have a great rig.... I had a 2006 Lexington 283 and just this Sept upgraded to a class A Berkshire...

We loved the Lexington and took some great trips in it - our most recent (and last) was to Yellowstone....

We decided we needed more room so - the 38' Berkshire...

Build great memories in your new rig....

RV Users Manual??

Does FR print a users manual for the Lexington 255? I have manuals for many individual appliances, but not a overall operating manual. I need to learn how to use the lp gas system, the generator, how to winterize the water lines, etc.

Congratulations on your new rig and welcome to FRF.

If the original manual that came with the Lexington 255 was like mine, it is a combination of a generic FR booklet (not very helpful) along with a loose packet of manuals for each appliance (helpful). You can do a Google search for the specific component manuals.

As for procedures, I think that this forum and RV.net are the go to places to get the best advice to your questions. Feel free to post.

I had a 2006 FR Lexington 283 with only 8k miles on it when I bought it in 2007.... I paid $58K for it.... Kept it for 4 yrs and sold it with 16,284 miles on it for $55K.....

Then, in 2011 I bought a 2008 FR Berkshire DP with 4 slides. I paid $89K for it and absolutely love, love, love it..... MPG in it are actually better than with the Lexington with the big V10 in it.....

Did really enjoy our Lexi BUT would never want to go back to it....

Hope you have a blast in yours.... See you down the road.....

We were fortunate to purchase this vehicle from an acquaintence. Paid quite a bit less than the average price we were seeing on internet.
