Cherokee Travel Trailer

We recently purchased a 2006 23dd Cherokee Forest River travel trailer but it did not come with an owner's manual. Does anyone know where I can get or download a free copy?

your question is asked very often and there are many threads on this.
the basic answer is that FR only provides a very basic owner's manual, that covers basic systems on all types of RVs.
it has nothing specific to the model or even brand of RV.
a basic RV book on RVs would be better than what FR provides.

you can download manuals for the important things: a/c, microwave, converter, fridge/freezer, furnace, water heater, radio, slideout, and so on.
just get the model number and check the manufacturer's website.

The best manual I have found is reading threads on this forum. As bikendan and others have stated, the paper manuals we receive from our purchase are generic at best and offer little information. The SME's on this forum provide much better information because they've been there and done that. Some even got the t-shirt.

The only "manual" they give you are the operating/install instructions to everything installed on the rv.

Search the forum for any info you need and it will be 10x's better than any manual you would find!

Good luck and happy camping.
