FR Owners Manual PDF

We just bought 2019 Wildwood X Lite and downloaded the PDF manual from Forest River website. I saved it to thumb drive and took the drive to Office Max/Depot and had them print it off in 3 hole punch paper. I had downloaded a 25% coupon off Office Max/Depot website so 62 pages only cost me $7.00. I bought a 3 hole binder and index tabs and organized the manual.

I plan on doing this as well, all I got was appliance manuals with my TT.
Seems as if printed manuals are no longer provided with new RV's.

I usually will down load the manual and then print it.. Punch out 3 hole and put in binder. last one I did was 700 pages for my new Ram truck as they no longer furnish manuals. Dumb and cheap. They expect you to go to the settings in the uconnect screen and sit in your truck and read this stuff. Its pretty sorry these companies can no longer furnish you with a manual. Later RJD

IPad Stores all manuals

I have been able find just about every manual I need online. I download it into my document manager on my IPad and always have the manuals at my fingertips when needed.

Personally, I find the generic owners manual not worth the cost for paper and ink.
It's pretty much useless.

I download all manuals to an app on my phone and tablet.

It is called Good Reader. Works really well and if desired can print any page.

X2. I never print what I can save. Always know where it is

Really? We just bought the same TT and I found the manual completely generic. I wonder if you found a different manual? I like the idea of printing and having a physical copy of the manual.

I agree with bikedan; the generic has limited usefulness. I contacted FR to find out what roof I have on my 2019 Grey Wolf 20RDSE. All I could get out of them was that it was a Dicor roof. My inspection at the fan vent seems to show it is TPO, I am assuming the Diflex II. I just wanted to know which caulking and sealant to use.
