Rockwood Signature 8280WS

Hey guys,

I have a 2015 Ultralite 8280WS, never lived in by anyone, but I got a great deal because it needed some renovations from damage during carrier transport. New roof, wiring, cabinet remodel/repair, etc... I am handy and mechanically inclined, but I would like an operators manual for it to help with unanswered questions. Anyway know how to get one? While asking, what about factory replacement parts, company/website suggestions?

Also, what' the operations of the fireplace? Haven't figured that one out yet.

No such thing as an operator manual.
Only thing is a generic owners manual.
Has only basic RV systems information.
No model/brand/RV type information.
It's the RV Industry standard.

That's what I thought. How about that fireplace? Place to get replacement parts?

Look at each appliance you have (microwave, stove, furnace, water heater, fireplace, etc.) Get model # and go on the internet and you can find the owners manuals for them all.

Here's a link to the "interactive" 2015 FR Owners Manual. In the upper right corner is a PDF link so you can download the whole thing. (I would have attached it here, but the forum won't take it because it's too large; 13.5 MB vs 10 MB limit.)

You'll find it's pretty generic.

The fireplace may be on a switch with the WH or the Microwave. On the same circuit and switched so only one will work at a time. You'll have to write your own manual as you go along.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant
