Newbie questions: 1998 Sea Breeze 1330 Limited

Hi everyone!
Excited to be part of the RV family. Just purchased a clean Sea Breeze with Chevy Vortec. Overall in nice shape but have some problem areas that I need help with. Thanks in advance...Alain

-No Owners Manual, any ideas if I can download one here or another site?

-Front house a/c and fan won't turn on. Not sure if it's a popped breaker (not sure where it's at since I have no owners manual).

-Front tv in the center of the dashboard won't turn on. Is there a switch or something? I noticed my radio wouldn't turn on until I saw the radio switch in the dash. Why would they have a separate radio switch to power stereo? Also, is back up camera wired to that tv? I don't seem to have another monitor.

-Major leak in hydraulic stabilizer jack. Tried to put them down last night and now I have what looks like transmission fluid all over my driveway. Leak occured around the entry door area in the center or the coach. Now jacks won't retract and I'm hoping I can use my car jack to push them back up so I can drive the motorhome to repair shop.

-since this is a chevy chassis, can I take it to a chevy dealer for repair instead of the even more expensive RV dealer? Any good shop recommendations for my area (Cary, IL)

Thank you again. Looking forward to solving these problems and getting on the road with my family!

Do a thorough inspection of your RV to familiarize yourself with every component. You should have a circuit breaker box somewhere inside the RV. It will most likely have all your breakers along with some fuses.

For the TV, I would remove it to make sure it's getting power. For your radio, it will be powered on when engine is running or key in the ACC position....without the key you can flip that switch and it will provide power to the radio.

Thanks for the replies. I went out to clean the RV this morning and discovered all the manuals in a hard to spot drawer! So I am good there. Also I noticed the electrical plug wasn't plugged In to the generator outlet so now I have power to front a/c and a bunch of other things. TV is still a mystery. I will troubleshoot tomorrow. With the Hydraulic leak I had a hydraulic repair company come and and repair the line...$280...ouch!
