Hi all

Just wanted to drop a line. I recently bought a 2012 Forester for near future retirement travels...probably mostly to Florida. Just drove it 1500 miles from the east coast to Ontario (home) and discovered some issues along the way. It didn't come with manuals so I can see this forum being a great resource.
Cheers!

welcome to the forum its a great place to get your question answered. You can download the manuals online for your installed equipment. Most RV manuals provided are generic

If you have a build sheet you can use that to get the manufacturer, model # etc. for the OEM equipment in your unit. Ad mentioned above download the manuals from the OEM. Keep a copy of the build sheet in your RV in case you ever need parts or service. If you did not get a build sheet, contact your dealer. Every RV shipped from FR divisions is sent with a multipart build sheet.

Welcome from SoCal!

You are correct - this is the best manual. It's just not instant.
