Gearing up for a slower pace

Hi everyone, we are in the learning curve to rv'ing. My wife retired after teaching 30 years, I'm still working at the same refinery over 35 years & planning on setting "the date" soon. About one year ago we purchased an "Overland" DP with I think ever option available, only 60,000 miles & in pretty fair shape. We managed to add a propane injection to the Cummins engine, a Garmin gps with wireless camera. Not sure exactly what we will need next. Many questions will be coming soon. What we didn't get was manuals with the purchase.

Looking forward,
Lynn

Hi Lynn,

Welcome to the Forum! There is a "Owner's Forum" at the top of the page that you may need to go into to find manuals. Someone there is apt to have them or can get you the info to get them. Did you try calling the manufacturer to see if they have them available?

Retire and go have fun. LB

Hello Lynn,

On our old coach, it did not come with any manuals either.

The actual motor coach "manuals" were easy to find online from the coach manufacturer, Newmar.

It was everything else that took sometime, appliances, jacks, etc.

With model numbers in hand, I started my online search. The coach at the time was 12 years old.

I found "most" of the manuals or "Close enough for government work" to at least give a working knowledge of the part or applicance.

Good luck - and when you finally retire, you'll wonder how you ever had time to work..........
