2014 Cedar Creek Silverback 33RL

We just picked up our new (used) 2014 Cedar Creek Silverback 33R. The previous owners kept a few things like the chairs, one tv, etc.

Worse, to me, they kept the documentation. It's got the 6-point Lippert automatic leveling system. Not sure if the slides are hydraulic or electric. I also have no info on the two air conditioners.

How do I operate the slides and leveling system manually if and when the need arises?

Thank you.

Google is your friend. Do a Lippert Level up search and you can download the user manual. Same for the Dometic (I assume) A/C's. If you look under the slides and see a cylinder ... they are hydraulic ... Google is your friend again here searching for Lippert hydraulic slides manual.
Here's one of many links to the basic level up manual(s) http://www.primetimerv.com/download/...nersmanual.pdf

Thank you for your help. I found what I need for the levelers. I'll work on the slides tomorrow.

No Reason to think they are not hydraulic. My 33rl, 2015, built in 2014 is. If you open the bedroom slide and it hesitates slightly, it is hydraulic. Electric in on a gear driven track and catches instantly. In the front compartment there will be a hydraulic fluid container. ( look around ).

Use on line or you tube for info.

Manuals WERE provided with our 2015. Very detailed information. I reference them frequently.

May I SUGGEST this: SUMMER WILL END; FALL WILL BEGIN; FIRST FREEZE WILL BE HERE. ( hate that! )

NOW is the time to learn HOW TO QUICKLY AND THOROUGHLY WINTERIZE. Do you have necessary supplies? Correct tools? Have located ALL DRAIN POINTS? Have correct size tool for water heater plug drain? Have small air compressor to blow lines, correct fittings? Have a CHECK LIST?

You do not want to wake up to an early October freeze and panic! If you go south and return home in freezing conditions, are you going to be prepared?

August and September will come and go. Enjoy! BUT: be prepared! 👍

Documentation

My new 36ckts cedar creek came with minimum documentation. The information you requested was not covered. With a residential refrigerator did not tell me how to turn the water on for ice maker, did not tell me about boost for tv antenna, gave me no information on generator use, etc.

I had a similar experience with the Convection Microwave. Whirlpool supplied a very brief description to operate this contraption. Did on line research to resolve.

I believe FR sends manuals to the dealer. Does NOT always get to the consumer nor are they always sufficient in detail. It is possible that optional or upgraded equipment manuals are overlooked by FR.

We are fortunate that THIS FORUM is VERY INFORMATIVE and QUICK RESPONSE!

When I bought my Silverback it contained a manual for all the appliances, even the awning. Did you look under the seats of the dining room chairs?
