Owners Manual Solera

Is there such a thing as an actual owners manual for our brand new 2014 24R? We had various appliance manuals that were strewn under the sink but no overall " this is your coach and how to use it".

Simple answer is no.
You can look up and download all your appliance manuals on the inter web.
Not a very good dealer to not give you a proper pdi. And not show you how everything works.

Have to agree with Turbo that your dealer should have done a pre-delivery inspection and gone over everything with you and made sure that everything works. If your just looking for something that helps you understanding some of the RV systems better I'd recommend (The RV Handbook and / or Trailer Life's RV Repair and Maintenance Manual) both very good books on RV systems.

I got a "Universal Manual" with my new MH , not much worth, and all the appliance manuals. The actual manual is this forum...even as an experienced trailer / motorhome enthusiast it helped me tremendously on many occasions! Thank you all...

The forum is great for finding out things, Another good source is youtube once you get around some of the BS it can give you a lot of valuable info. I think I watched about a dozen videos on the Solera before I received it.

Thanks for the info! WE did have a walk through with an RV service guy. He works on more than just Solera so it was just general. You are right, my best info comes from this forum.

The walk through is good and dandy but who can remember all of that...even with notes. Before we got our Solera we had a Sprinter based Class B from another maker that came not only all of the various appliance manuals but also had an overall manual to cover the all of the systems. We were a bit surprised that the Solera didn't have one as well. It would be a great thing for FR to provide something like that for their owners...just saying.

Forest river has a generic manual.
If your using your Web browser look in the "library" section at the top of this page.
