Yes, do find a friendly RV park and ask for help. Offering food is a nice touch as well.

The Escapees Boot Camp is worth every penny and hour invested. We went here in Texas in 2012 before we got our TT and it helped us know more when we went looking. Now that we have a year of experience we are ready to go back with more questions.

The instructors are experts in their fields, i.e. tires, security, fire prevention, weight distribution, and much more. Plus they are genuinely kind, nice people who have heard all your questions before, won't think they're dumb, and will share happily. I have asked questions via email and I always get a prompt and helpful reply.

You meet a great cross-section of people from all walks of life and classes of RVs. There were singles and couples in our group. One lady flew into Houston from Tacoma to attend. Depending on how the schedule is arranged it's two very full days, but the return on investment is well worth it. (An Escapees membership is also a great value. The magazine is outstanding and there's much more. We're really impressed with the Escapees CARE Center for those who need assistance in living independently after they are no longer able to travel.)

As said earlier the owners manual for most trailers is useless and very generic. I found manuals/parts lists for all of my appliances by searching the model number and manufactures name and if that didn't work I called them.

Welcome and Good Luck

this is what I got in response emailing holiday rambler after they told me it was not a holiday rambler.: Yes, it does say Holiday Rambler on the ID tag. Unfortunately I have very little information from prior to Monaco purchasing HR in 1996 and almost all of what I do have is for the motorized product. For the most part this kind of information would have been hard copy stored at the original HR factory in Indiana. When Monaco Coach Corp. went bankrupt and was liquidated in 2009 Navistar bought most of the core assets of Monaco out of the liquidation. They did not however buy the original HR factory. I do not know who did nor what they did with any literature on site. I wish I had a better answer, but at this point it looks like you know more about the vehicle than I do.

Well that's a bummer. You might search for vintage or antique RV owners forums or see if the RV/MH Hall of Fame Museum can help provide info.

help

okay guys I'm don't have a clue about these rv campers especially this 1977 holiday.

1) When the water is connected to the camper, where does everything go? I read there are two tanks, one for gray water and the other for black water, but looking underneath the camper I don't see anything.

2) on the bumper of the camper is what appears to be an outlet with a curved connection. Does a hose go there?

3) where does the poop go and where do I have access to where ever it goes?

4) The man I got it from says I can let the gray water out to the lawn, which is okay here, but where does it come from LOL

I know this sounds dumb but I looked underneath and don't see anything like tanks.

Look inside under the bench seats and the beds.

Also look for access panels inside, those may have 2 to 4 exposed screws to remove.

Thanks... but what is the pvc looking tube coming from the bumper? Is that the gray water like from the shower?

if tanks are under bench seats, etc how on earth do you lift it? Wouldn't it be heavy?
