Owner's manual

Does anyone know how I can get a manual for a 2008 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 17BH travel trailer? I tried a download site, but all I got was redirects and popup ads.

The Forest River manual is fairly generic. We have a copy you can download. It's in the "Files" found above in the menu bar.

Hope that helps you.

the owner's manual will be a big disappointment, so don't spend the money.

as said, it's generic and only covers basic RV systems common to all types of RVs.
nothing is model-specific, not even type of RV-specific.

Thanks. I had already found that option, but it's very generic, and covers RVs in general. It's better than nothing,but I wa hoping to find a manual specific to my model.

Lol. You won't find a manual that you seek.
The one you read is as specific as it. Gets

As for a manual, that's it.

Most of us create a collection of assortered appliance and system manuals that apply to our own campers. Either create a binder or save the PDFs to a computer. That will be useful to you. The download area contains many of these and feel free to add/upload any you think should be included in our library.

And if it's not in a manual, a quick post on FRF can help.

Oh Well....I'll just have to live with it. At least I have all of the appliance manuals.

That's a great idea. I'll compile everything I have that's relevant and make a binder.

Did that when I started my "Dash One" (AF pilot talk) for my camper. When the book got over 20 pounds, I moved all files from paper to computer files (PDF and DOC), URLs, and photos.

It quickly became known here as the "Herkbrary". Currently about 3 GIGs of stuff, I could never go back to paper. I keep it updated on a portable 160 Gig drive, thumb drive, iPad, iPhone, and back up regularly to my home computer.

No matter where I am, the files are available. Visiting a neighbor's camper, I can quickly find what I need to help solve a problem they might be having or show them photos of how to mod their camper to make it better.
