Need help finding info!

I'm new to the site and find a lot of useful info,but i don't seem to find anything on my type of RV.I guess i have a weird year of an RV.I have looked online and really don't find anything on my year and model of RV.
I have a 1996 HOLIDAY RAMBLER ENDEAVOR on a Chevy chassis gas powered .I have a owners manual,but it seems to be very vague as to just mostly informing about maintenance care of the engine and such.I have look for hours in the forums and it seems that there are hundreds and there all over the place.I am new to this size of an RV as i haven't Rved since a child in my fathers old Winnebago.Small size at that compared to mine now.I am looking for all the info i can get on this RV and any help i can.I am living in it year round and find this to be a very learning experience.I have even looked at the Holiday Rambler web site with not much luck either.Everything works good for me so far had to change out a power socket for the microwave and thats about it.I guess I'm looking for anyone that knows this type n model of RV or any good sites about my RV.I don't even know what forums to be looking in.Is my RV under workhorse?Any help will do.
Thank you
Jerry

Jerry, you may from time to time find helpful information on your coach on this forum, or the Workhorse one. Also any forum for the P-30 chassis. That is the chassis you have and was built by Chevy and has a Chevy 454 engine. You can get books from Helms on the chassis, which is a truck chassis, and the engine.

There are air bags inside the front coil springs that normally need around 90 lbs of air and help the coil springs carry the load. The master cylinder can be seen inside the driver's front wheel well.

Chevy sold their chassis to Workhorse and no longer support it, however parts may be available from Chevy Truck dealers. The biggest problem with the chassis it the park brake. The transmission does not have a device to lock it in Park. Instead there is a brake drum around the drive shaft for that. It is small and if not adjusted correctly will cause it to wear badly. Under the coach is a big metal box on the passenger side that houses the park brake pump and reservoir. There are two pressure switches inside there that are known to fail and leak. When all the fluid leaks out the brake automatically will deploy and you cannot move the coach until it is fixed. Messy job to replace these but it is not difficult. The one on the pump fails more than the other one.

All the other systems on the coach are made by others and there is much information about them available from many sources.

Thank Rex as the air ride system was one of the things i was looking info for.One of the others is my cig plug on the dash stopped working.I can't find a fuse box any where.Is there even one at all or is it just replace the cig plug?The other info that you shared with me is very helpful and informative.I had no idea about some of theses.
Thank you so much for your help,
Jerry

The dash/guage section on my P-30 chasis '93 Bounder lifts up and there are some fuses located there and the one for the lighter is locater there (I think, but I don't have that MH anymore so and have deleted from my brain some of what I used to know). There are also fuses some located under the hood.
