Looking for a Owners Manual

Hi Everyone, My wife and I just bought a used 2007 Salem 30bhbs LTD. It didn't come with the owners manual and I was wondering if anyone had one or knew where i could get my hands on one.... I'll take it in any form i can get it be hard copy or electronic..

Don't bother.
since this is your first post, i'll tell you that FR only provides a basic/generic owner's manual. none are model-specific.
it covers basic info on how RV systems work.
it's really not worth the paper it's printed on. you'd be better off buying a RV book.

it does come with manuals for all the things like: oven, a/c, stove, microwave, converter, furnace, fridge/freezer, and so on.
but you can get those from the manufacturers' websites.

Also disappointed with "manual"

Hey Robzilla, I'm taking delivery on a 2011 Windjammer on Wednesday.

The dealer kindly let me take the manual packet home to start reading through. I love to have good documentation, so I began to scour the contents of the packet.

That lasted about 20 minutes.

As stated, there are manuals/documents for all of the appliances, right down to the smoke detector, but not much that tells you anything specific about YOUR trailer.

The owners manual is VERY generic- basically a big waste of paper products. You'll learn more on this forum, or investigating the appliances (how they work) yourself. Randy

i'm sorry but did you read the previous posts?
the FR owners' manual is a generic waste of paper.

you'll do better with a RV how-to book.
you can get the manuals for the individual things, on the manufacturer's website. such as: fridge/freezer, a/c, oven, awning, converter, furnace, water heater and so on.

Too bad the manufacturer's don't just print them all to PDF's and post them on their websites by year and quit wasting the paper, the dealers should ask each buyer if they want a printed version for those computer handicapped persons. Then they could archive them for years to come. Everyone else could be directed to the website.
