Question Documentation ?

hi Folks.

Bought our Salem FLBK 38 foot last October, had it winterized and closed up, and now am looking forward to a full season.
My problem is this...all winter i have tried to find detailed documentation for the camper to learn all the things i need to know, and can not find any. Even called FR, and was sent a general overall document.
Anyone know where i can get some details... like maybe a wiring diagram, plumbing diagram, cable connection locations, where the water pump ... ETC...
or am I on my own.. except of course all you good folks that help all the time.

Thanks in advance.

You're on your own. And in fact, you've reached your question limit for the forum. Good luck!










Ok, I'm a jerk. I'm kidding on the question limit. What you found is accurate- documentation / owners manuals for the camper suck. You sort of have to find it on your own and ask questions here or there. I started a blog (still generic as I don't know specific campers and the models change so often) for just this reason; to help newbies get started.

Thats not true. There is a lot of very good information on this site that will help you get through just about anything and probably answer any question you have, most times with pictures included. You are definitely not on your own.

Almost no RV manufacturers provide model specific manuals.
Nearly all only provide a generic owners manual.

Your dealer should have provided you with a detailed inventory sheet showing model number and serial number for all installed third party components. Once you get that, go to the manufacturers web site and get the owners manual for the individual devices. The previous TT I owned provided me with a large loose leaf notebook that included ALL the manuals for the installed third party equipment.

Documentation ?

Sadly, I didn't get anything like what Flybob describes. And, I think the OP bought his trailer used.

I've bought 4 new trailers since Aug 2006 and all had a manual composed of the various owners manuals of the appliances, etc. Only 2 were FR products and they also had the various manuals in a notebook/canvas pouch with FR stamped on them.

You got ripped ependydad!

I wasn't clear - I got manuals but not a list of appliances with serial numbers.

Getting gipped- sounds like my dealer's style, though.
