Actually, I've pretty much got everything figured out. Replaced the fridge. Repaired the hot water heater (after a cold shower on our first trip out) and got everything else working ok. Hang on to them though cause someone else will be looking for manuals I'm sure. Hard to find anything on these older campers. I sincerely thank you for your efforts.

1977 prowler

Any suggestions on water heater for 1977. Expensive, hard to fix? Totally out of my element. But trying.

First, this thread is nearly 5 years old.
Second, it's a Fleetwood product, not Forest River.

You should get better help at a Fleetwood owners forum, especially for a rig that old.

Lemon,

A water heater in a 1977 is not that much different than a current model.If it is a gas valve issues, no flame or fire, the trailer should be serviced by a competent RV propane person. If you in good shape otherwise, furnace working safely, fridge, stove etc purchasing a new heater might be the best option. Being a older trailer before investing make sure others things are working, other wise it could be a money pit.

If on a seasonal lot a small 10 gallon under cabinet heater might work. Make sure you have 30 amp electrical service, most trailers back then had 30 but some only ad 15 or 20.

All the best.
