We build them on an assembly line, we have the chassis manual, a general "overall" manual and the "individual appliance manuals" (if the supplier actually makes one). We'll also introduce new floor plans on the fly and change components as supply/quality demands. The manual would be outdated before the ink dries.
Here's a thought; how about an on-line manual that would cover the current configuration and the changes could be included as they occur. that would be better than nothing.

I hope to start posting tips/tricks videos on our Facebook page. So maybe we can kill two birds with one stone. I can get a list of what you might want to see and each Monday? I'll post a new video. Working the radio, the 2250 bed, black tank flush.

Maybe I can start a new thread for these suggestions and the most popular wins for the week.

If you have a black tank flush its as easy as hooking a hose to the tank flush.

One thing I recommend (we have a rental company that does this) is attach a 45 degree clear fitting on the dump outlet. THEN, hook your sewer hose to that. It allows you to dump the black tank, then the gray, then flush if need to and you can see when the water is clear.

Personally I do it every time I store it, or if my sensors are not reading correctly. There may be a few other's with other suggestions...there's no rule to it really.

Sounds good. I hope you can get this organized. it would be very helpful.

the 45 degree clear fitting for the dump outlet would be ideal if it extends below the access hole in the coach body. the space and angle are so cramped that getting a hose through there is a chore.

Mr. Clemens,

i enjoy your posts but in all honesty if sunseeker created a manual and then only had to update changes to the manual yearly it would would solve many issues.

However keep the posts coming
