Did you check it out? This looks like a quick way to get a manual for trouble shooting a problem. I have never paid a dime as I only read, doubt I will every pay for a download. Just another tool for your box. Enjoy

Please give us a few examples of RV related publications that you have found on this site. I searched "Ford F53 Service Manual" and got a bunch of completely irrelevant records.

Sorry .. Appreciate the link, jsmith.. Just was wondering why it was in this forum and not the 'Conversations' or 'General Discussions' cause it didnt appear to be a repair manual site to me.. But, I see that it was moved.

I put in cummins ISM and Norcold and got a lot of repair and operators manuals.
Also fault codes for my engine and repair procedures. I just went back and found the info for Caterpillar.

Maybe try your specific engine.

I was trying to find a Tech forum, because my mind is always in the fixit mode.

I have not looked at all the possible uses of the site as I just found it recently, but if you think it would be better some where else let's move it or just post another thread.

I check with a product's manufacturer first to see if they provide a manual online. If not, I search Scribd.com. Then, when I click to download a document, it wants me to login with Facebook which I don't use so I click to skip login.

I do not plan to pay for any downloads, but if someone needed a manual that they could not get from the manufacturer, $5 for a day is not a bad price. You could load a lot in a day then the manuals would be on your computer for viewing later.

$9/Month Membership
$5/Day Pass
$59/Year unlimited download access
or FREE to read online

Ok, I'm going to ask a pointed question: do you have a financial connection with the website?

None whatsoever. I have read so many posts over the years about bad service for high cost and not getting work properly done that whenever I find sites of any value I thought I should share them. I stated that the manuals are free to read and I have never purchased any. I really thought that showed I was not selling anything. I still say if a site had a document I could not get anywhere else then $5 is a cheap price, especially if I could save $100 a hour of questionable service and the inconvenience of a shop visit. I reckon this will have to be included in any future post, "I have no financial connection to ..."

Here is another free source for service manuals, etc. (I have no financial connection):
Service Documents
