Parts/Owners Manual

Recent 1st time owner for about a month now. Rig is currently in storage and i'm hoping to work on a number of things this winter. Some of these repairs are going to need parts. Problem is, none of the information I received from previous owners (and there was a lot) has much detail, and definitely nothing to reference for parts. Rig is not currently readily accessible, so trying to find information on the existing items not a real option.

Have 2011 Georgetown, anyone got any quality owner's manuals that possible has parts list? Or site/link that may have? For example, looking for replacement motor for one of the front window's blinds, a overhead light lens cover, etc.

Thanks in advance for any information that can steer me in the right direction.

From my limited experience with RVs and boats, there is no such thing as a parts list, electrical schematic, or plumbing diagram.

As to specific items, such as the water heater, refrigerator, air conditioner, slides and etc. go to the manufactures site and see if a manual is available for your specific model. Don't take the approach "I don't need no stinking manual". For if one was ever in the military then "RTFM" is understood......Read The Fantastic Manual. err something like that.

Many replacement items are found at eTrailer, Amazon, Camping World, and other like places. Just remember, everyone uses basically the same crap regardless of make, model, or price.

With our TT, I have assembled a collection of manuals for all items such as water heater, refrigerator, furnace, air conditioner and etc., and other documentation in a 3-ring binder that stays on the trailer. This along with a maintenance log becomes a valuable piece of history and support.

yeah, previous owner gave me binder with a lot of manuals for appliances and some equipment. Just haven't found anything yet to help with general RV parts that are not part of specific things and i know i need to replace. The logbook suggestion was one of the first things someone else told me too, so i have already got me a logbook and putting it to use every time i learn even the simplest of things, knowing i will forget "next time".
THANKS

Try calling the Class A / Class C Service Center at (574) 206-7600. They probably won't have a printed or public on-line parts list, but should be able to help you with numbers of specific parts.

It will help a lot if you give them the last 8 digits of your VIN.
