21FBRS Instructions Missing

I just took delivery of a new 2015 21FBRS. No instructions or manuals for the power awning, slide out or power jack. I'm concerned about how to operate these "conveniences" in the event of an electrical problem. Anyone else not get this information in the instruction packet? Hints?

I was lacking a bunch of information when we bought our camper. I contacted the dealer, told him what I wanted, and he got me the information. It should not be our responsibility to look up everything and go to the cost of printing it out.........let the dealer that.

I made sure I asked in PDI. If they didn't cover it, they should answer your questions now

There is a tool in the storage compartment for the slide. If you look under the couch you'll see the motor for the slide and should also see a receptacle for the slide too. Wind it in/out manually as needed.

My jack has a plug in the top. remove the plug and you'll see a bolt head. turn it with the correct size socket.

Can't recall the manual extension and return for the awning. I'll check my manual and get back to you if no one else answers before then. Edit: A manual is attached.

Thanks for the quick responses! Looks like I'll just need to buy a pull strap to manually roll up the awning.

I did find the documents section on the Lippert site for their documents. Can't quite figure out which slide out is the correct one though. I'm assuming the Sofa Slideout is pretty close. Camper is back to the shop for a slide out adjustment (top was bowed out some at the top) and water system pressure check and re-winterization (the camper was delivered to me with a 4" block of ice in the freshwater tank). And no, I'm not a happy camper with this dealer.

It sounds like your dealer is not doing a very good job. He should be able to atleast give you mfgrs and model nos of appliances attachments etc.. With those you can search this site or the net for manuals or info..we all have gone thru the samething with instructions. I have a 3"red notebook with manuals parts lists etc and about 30 links to posts on here that are model specific.

Pretty much everyone on these forums has experienced one form of issue or the other. Search the threads and you will find it here.
Trust me when I say, as a TT owner, you learn quick.

I've managed to round up all the missing manuals online except for the slide-out; much in part to help from everyone here! Even FR said they didn't have a Lippert manual for the slide out in a 21FBRS. Hoping Lippert will respond to my email and send me something (nothing like it on their site currently).

Nope, FR just said they did not have a manual for the 21FBRS slide. Looks to me like it is some version of their above floor slide system.

Last thought about your slide, try to find the controller. Mine is located in the front storage area by the water pump. That will at least give you a mfg of the slide. You may be able to figure out the slide model from the controller.

Thanks! I hadn't considered that there even was a controller for the slide! I'll check that out as soon as all this ice and snow go away.

For what it's worth, overall I've found this trailer to be relatively well put together; definitely better than most of what I've looked at.

No controller that I can find. Lippert did get back to me; but only to say they didn't know what FR used in this year's 21FBRS. One word for the RV industry; BUILD LIST by VIN. It would take all of two minutes to find a P/N, and manufacturer for every nut and bolt on my truck. Ughh.

Well, here is the email I finally got from Lippert. Explains why there is no manual. At least I know how to describe it should I need support.

Dan
The slide system number is 275549/Wheel Well Slide. I can tell you that if we do not have a manual the manufacture will not have one either. If for any reason you will need technical assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at 574-537-8900.

Thank you

That's odd the manufacturer wouldn't have a manual. Why would that be?

It's the world of RV manufacturing. From what I can determine, this particular slide is essentially and adaptation of their regular sofa slide with the drive motor mounted to the side of the wheel well.

I find it even odder that the FR manual that came with my 21FBRS doesn't even cover many of the features it has; black water flush and antifreeze inlet system for example.
