Forest River FR3 owners manual

I would like to know if anyone received a complete owners manual for this motor home? I received a manual that is 50 pages, however it does not include anything about the seats, seatbelts or general info for a first time owner. My neighbor has a airstream trailer and his owners manual is over 250 pages and is alphabetized on different subjects and questions. I also received a separate manual for the radio and TV. Why could they not put everything together in one manual? I really feel unprepared when I enter my motorhome. Thanks for any help.

I received a very large 3-ring binder with information on all the appliances, the coach itself, and auxiliary systems. There are items not covered, but for what isn't there I've found this forum to be extremely helpful.

All my papers were tossed in one of the cabinets in a huge mess.

Did you receive this from your dealer?

I gotta big binder as well. No it doesn't cover everything or nearly as much as I would've liked, but it had some good info in it. The Internet has the answers for what's not in there

Mine was in a zippered pouch. But for a generic FR 5er, not my specific 36DBKS. Mine has a triple axel, the manual has a double axle...

We also received a 3 ring binder (I think the dealer put it together) with manuals on the appliances, fridge, AC, heater, generator. etc.. If I require any info on any stuff not in the binder, I'll give Travis Bird, the warranty mgr. at FR, a call or send him an email. He's generally pretty good at getting back to you. 574.206.7635 or tbird@forestriverinc.com
