Owners manual

We just bought an older Forest River Cardinal and have spent a couple hours trying to locate any owners manual for any Forest River 5th wheel. Does anyone have any sources??

There is really no such thing as an owners manual that is worth much. I recommend checking all the appliances in your 5er ( fridge, WH, furnace etc). Record the make, model and serial number of each item then go on line to the equipment manufacturer and download the manual for the appliance. Keep a copy of the info you recorded in the 5er and at home. It will be valuable should you need parts or repair.

There is a Forest River app that has owner’s manuals. That is how I got one on my iPad.

Be forewarned. These manuals are generic to several models and have very little model-specific information.

My stick-built home did not come with an owner’s manual. My rolling home did not come with much of one either.

The link below will take you to the interactive manuals for the components in your unit. Select your RV model and you should be able to access the manuals for your appliances.
