1999 National RV 7372 Tradewinds,300hp Cat.

How do I get the owners manual? Just picked this beast up & really like to get to know all the ends and outs what & how much fluid? Stiff like that. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

We had a '99 Twinds, the owners manual was totally worthless. Best to get some Freightliner info for the chassis

I agree with dons2346, the 'owner's manual' is often full of such advice as 'always wear seat belts,' 'wash with a mild detergent' and other great helpful tips. Wiring diagrams are similar, they might show wire paths, but no clue as to where the components actually are. Time is better spent listing make and model of each appliance and component and do a google search for manuals for each item.

These folks might help with a manual:

On A Mission,

Start posting on the National Owners Forum section here. You can usually get more detailed responses directly from other NRV owners.

Advice to get Freightliner chassis info is right on! You can download the brochures on your coach from the nationalrv.org site that will give you much needed info as well.

Go to the National forum, look for Dick Berry, "Theberrys", he has scanned and posted a lot of material. I don't have the url handy, but contact Dick and he can tell you how to find it. I believe he has the 7372, we have a 7371 - and love it!

Sounds like you had a major problem in the transfer box that was present before
you did anything.
Making sure you are disconnected from all AC power open the transfer lid and see
what the wiring and relays look like and that all connections are tight.
Sounds like a burnt relay that was fused together thus the fire works.
As Ka7suz stated Dick has a lot of information posted on your MH and what he does
not I might have in my two very large note books.

That is your transfer switch. Power comes in from the generator or shore cord, I believe on the left side of the box. It is switched to the center which has wires leading out to your circuit breaker box. Solenoids switch the power from one side or the other to the center. WITH ALL AC DISCONNECTED you might try to manually move the pivot points in the switch to see if you welded the points by switching with a load on.

Should this green light be on? Should the black switch be on or off? What power goes thru this thing I think it's a transfer switch? It was loose and sparking while motor ran. I got this rig back from a rent a place my father in law let rent it out, long story short it's mine now with all the problems but one by one I fix, this is all new to me. But it's my home now & with now money to pay someone to fix it wrong I'm on my own, do thank you for all your help.

I disconnect the ac and should I disconnect the shore power also? Then what should I use to move it ? Screwdriver or finger. After testing to make sure
No Power is going to it.
