Leisure FS TE - no manual so many questions

So I bought it, brought it home, started reading the manual and learned, that my model was not considered.

Then I went to their page to download the PDF-non existent.

Imagine a new MH owner, whose knowledge ends with the book RVing for dummies without a manual.

Are there any TE owners out there that could answer some of the following TE questions?

How does the macerator toilet work? What are the maintenance requirements.

How is the blackwater hose operated? Where is it found?

How does the rinse work? When is it used? Where is it found?

What kind of refrigerator is built into the TE? On what kinds of fuel does it operate?

Where is the water heater power switch located?

Does it have a TV antenna?

What can be stored in the spare tire compartment?

What are the Coach Specifications for the TE?

I would appreciate every bit of help,
thank you

How does the macerator toilet work? What are the maintenance requirements.

Do a search for your make and model of macerator toilet. A macerator breaks down waste into smaller pieces to allow faster bacterial breakdown and drain through a hose.

How is the blackwater hose operated? Where is it found?

Often a blackwater hose isn't provided, it needs to be purchases separately.

How does the rinse work? When is it used? Where is it found?

Black tank may have a spray nozzle installed that allows rinsing of black tank after dumping. It must be hooked up to a water hose and often has a backflow valve attached to prevent contamination of water supply.

What kind of refrigerator is built into the TE? On what kinds of fuel does it operate?

Again, look up make and model of refrigerator on internet. They often require 12 v for control, may be 120 v and LP gas, some models also work on 12 v for cooling, but only when engine is running since it can drain battery quickly.

Where is the water heater power switch located?

Switch is often located in a monitoring panel along with water pump switch. Only turn on after making sure water tank is full and all air is bled out of the hot water lines.

Does it have a TV antenna?

Look on the roof, and also on the ceiling for a manual crank to raise antenna.

What can be stored in the spare tire compartment?

Whatever fits, wouldn't suggest sharp items.

What are the Coach Specifications for the TE?

Should be a sticker near the driver's seat that lists federally required weight and tire inflation limits. The tire inflation limits are for a fully loaded RV, get it weighed after loading for travel and look up actual tire inflation PSI on tire manufacturer's web site.

I would appreciate every bit of help,
thank you

Good luck!

Thank you very much. It is quite an overwhelming task to get to know all those thing. I appreciate you taking the time to answer.
I found a bunch of manuals for the appliances, but they are mostly for the installers. LV has a neat manual for the other models, it is beyond me how they can sell a new model that has no comprehensive manual. Again, thank you for your time.

They made it, you paid for it, demand an appropriate owner's manual.
