I agree with you, Bubbles! Give me a quality unit and keep your trinkets. The last thing I would want to do is advertise for Forest River!

Hey I got a welcome gift....some toilet paper and some blue stuff for my toilet which came in handy the first time I passed a semi with my new camper trailer I could have sworn the truck driver was laughing at me as I crawled by. He looked a lot like Warren Bruffet! Since I bought this new camper I've felt a certain BOND with Warren and I'm sure he has shared many a BOND with his fellow man. Sorry....bad joke

Forest River RV Online Owners Manuals
I'm still hoping for a manual that is model specific. Maybe next 5er I buy will have one. Mine is a triple axel and the only one I saw (via your link) is a double. The sticker on the side of mine is "36 DBKS" I can't find anyone else that owns one including searching this site!

I, along with what would guess the majority of FR owners here, am very happy with multiple FR units I have owned and proud to be a FR owner.

If you're not satisfied with FR, why are you here and posting. Why not find another product you like more?

I agree with you Ned. Everyone experiences problems, and this is a great place to get assistance.

I just don't understand why people hang around just to bash the brand.

Don't bet on it or hold your breath; you will turn blue before that happens.

I am on my third 5er from three different manufactures and none of them have published model specific manuals. In fact the last unit I own which was a 318SAB Cougar 2010 model built by Keystone. The manual was so bad that you had to go the sub-manufactures web site and see if you could find information on the slides. Thankfully Lippert Components did publish manuals for their slides.

I figured that out, it's just frustrating! Would be nice to find my model online somewhere though. Fortunately, I'm kinda handy and have tools and an inquiring mind! Happy camping!

Just human nature tied to the ease of venting that the internet affords everyone. Behind the bashing though you'll find some good points that need to be said. Thats why I always read them good ideas always have a way of shining through the chaff. By the way I'd be proud to wear a Sunseeker hat. Heck forgot to get a dealer hat when bought my 2650

The lack of owner's manuals is not surprising. How many of you out there run powerful computer software with an owner's manual? I would bet not many. Is your car owner's manual worth a damn? Nope. Mine doesn't even tell me how to change the battery (lo and behold, it's behind the passenger's seat!). I'm pretty sure our Harley didn't come with one, either.

Thank goodness for Google & YouTube these days.
