New Travel Trailer Owner

Hi! We just picked up our 2012 Salem Tbud travel trailer this past Saturday and are heading out this coming Saturday. We had a pop-up and are very excited about 'moving on up." The people at the dealership were very helpful, but now that we have it home, we have some questions. Does anyone know where we can find an operating manual?

The operators manual is very generic and covers very little.
even so or should have been with all your appliance manuals.

You should have gotten a very large package with all sorts of information. Including the totally worthless owners manual. But in it you should find manuals for each appliance telling you exactly how to operate that appliance. Any other questions feel free to ask here.

you should have gotten the useless and generic owner's manual, along with the useful manufacturers' manuals for individual things, like the a/c, furnace, oven, converter, fridge/freezer, slide, water heater and so on.

As other's said the FR manual may not help but the separate system and appliance manuals should help.

What are your questions? We can probably help you more than some stinking manual

Thanks for the responses

I have a couple of questions now - probably more later. First, what is the best way to run the refrigerator while we are traveling to the campground? Second, if we camp at a full service site, do we wait to empty the black and gray water when the tanks are almost full?

select auto on your fridge then it will be gas when there is no shore power and when you hook up to shore power then it will switch to electric.
no WE use our fridge going down the hiway but thats a big topic around here weather to do it or not . IVE NEVER had a problem.

dump at the end of your weekend camping trip black first then gray second.
