Fleetwood Newbie

Hey Y'all! We are certainly new to the RV world! Owned a 1994 Airstream Land Yacht for 2 years and decided to upgrade....now, we're the proud owners of a 2005 Fleetwood Providence and feel like we have died and gone to heaven! But soooo much to learn..I mean, I can't even get the radio to work! (the green screen comes on, but nothing else....sigh....) I guess slowly but surely we will master this monster. We don't travel much...YET....we are in farming, and right now is the height of harvest for us (soybeans, cotton and peanuts), so we won't be going ANYWHERE until harvest is over! But come January, we plan to hit the road (short trips at first). My biggest obstacle now is learning how to use all of the appliances...we have NO instruction manuals at all....the previous owner didn't have any either. So any help from you guys would be much appreciated! This will probably be my best "learning place" to get a handle on all I need to know. Thanks in advance for your help!

There are manuals for download in one of the stickies on this website.
Good luck and keep the rubber on the road

Click on the link in the 11/12/11 UPDATE in this thread to get to FW's listing of mfr's for systems/appliances.

Congrats on your new-to-you Providence. You picked a good one.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Welcome to the Family...!!!

We are the owners of a pre-enjoyed 2005 Revolution and we were fortunate to get most of the manuals. Feel free to email me if you need any info. We are still learning, but would love to share anything with you....

Radio?

Thanks for all of the quick responses! You guys are AWSOME! Yes, I guess my first start would be to contact each manufacturer for a manual. My biggest hangup right now is, I can't even get the radio to work! Not sure of brand but has VR180 on it. I turn it on and a green screen comes on but no numbers. I think I have punched every button there is!! Could it be hooked into the theatre sound system that is in here (Panasonic SA-HT670)? Boy...I feel like such an idiot...
