At the Quartzsite rally in January I spoke at the owner/mfg. general meeting about having a website at WRV similiar to this technical link.

Thanks for these links --- we are picking up our 1998 Alpine next Sat and we are reading all we can find as this is our first diesel. We are going to need all the help we can get! LOL -

Thanks, Beagle! These are a great resource!

I also talked to the factory reps about a similar technical resource within the WRV website. They assured me they will work on that as soon as the dust has settled with all of the adjustments they are making at the factory. We'll just have to keep bringing it up to keep it on their radar screen.

Here is another very good link from Beaver Motorhomes.
This is the type of information that I hope WRV will make available for those of us that would rather not go into a repair facility. If it is necessary to get repairs done then the shop that does the work can use this for a resource to help expedite the repairs. At $100 plus dollars an hour who wants to run the risk of having an apprentice mechanic flounder around looking for simple items they are not familiar with.(I was recently in a Alpine dealership and the tech didn't know where the refer fuse was!)
If you have other links please post them. Any comments will keep this on the top.

The 'Beaver' tech page was somewhat of a dud. Sorry, I will post more tech pages when I find them. Below are some refrigerator tech pages.

Beagle - what a great idea! Thanks, I just saved those web sites to my hard drive so we can look at them as needed. We get so many really great and useful ideas off this forum. Keep it up.

Tiffin tech library. Lot of interesting pages with good links. If WRV gets into a web tech page business I would like to see something like this. Also, a build sheet with pertinet make and model information would be very helpful. I find very little in the supplied owners manual to be helpful.

I also find the Owner's Manual to be rather sketchy.

Some great info links. Thanks Beagle. I am keeping all this info along with everything else I am gathering and will soon be putting together a link where you all can acess it anytime. Keep up the good work and keep the info coming. I plan on trying to organize it into subchapters,brakes, aqua hot, batteries,etc. If any one has any ideas on this that maybe helpful let me know. Thanks Ron

"OWNERS MANUAL" Is that the sketchbook with the stick figures and a map to Camp WRV and the nearest residential hotel... or is it the one with Burk's hand drawn diagrams that require the services of an Egyptian expert in hieroglyphics?
