Manual for 1991 Dolphin FS-3100

Hi,

I just bought a National Dolphin FS-3100 with Ford engine.
Does anybody have a manual for it (no matter if electrical, engine, user manual, ...) - I basically have not found any info in the motor home :-(

Regards,
Sebastian

RV owner's manuals are not what you probably hope for. They are usually very general in nature, full of such 'helpful' tips as "use your seat belts" "While the motor home is moving, the sleeping facilities are not to be used." Real details, as to where your battery isolation relays are located or locations of fuses and what they control are missing.

You can check here: Manuals - 1990 & Newer - RVing-The Midwest Connection

Spend time in the RV with a flashlight, pen and paper. Write down the make and model of everything you find. Don't be afraid to look in closets, cabinets, and compartments, remove cover panels and look behind things. Note any breakers or fuses you encounter. Then spend some cold winter nights using Google to track down manuals for each system you find. I have almost all of mine downloaded as PDF files for reference.

Some websites to help:
Service Documents and Manuals
Owners Manuals

You could also check on line for manuals for other brands to get general ideas about motorhome storage, use, and ideas. It costs a lot of money to have a manual written, vetted by lawyers, etc. They are kept generic so production or design changes doesn't require the whole process be re-done. Many of the current makers of RVs have pretty good access to documentation, especially Winnebago, Winnebago | RVs, Motorhomes, Recreational Vehicles
includes plumbing, electrical diagrams. Tiffin also has manuals on line:
Manuals | Tiffin Motorhomes

They can get you started and you'll notice a sameness to owner's manuals that leaves a lot of details lacking.

Thanks Bob, that link helped a lot :-) My Dolphin has one the AC, furnace and refrigerators listed there - so that is fine.
Now I just have to find the wiring diagram (with regards to the the 12V->110/220V conversion) and the schematics of the gas installation.

Regards,
Sebastian
