Hi from Sudbury Canada

Bought a 2000 Ford 23' motor home. Made our first long trip last weekend and had a blow out...ironman cheap tires. Blow out caused hole in floor, bent muffler up into and above skirt, rubber mud flap set itself above tires, blew propane lines...changed tire and kept on driving. Skirt caught on fire from muffler being bent up too far, put out fire and bent muffler back down out of skirt view. Arrived at destination and then had a propane leak, used shut off
valve and it did not work, had to use purge valve to release gas (6 hours to purge). Propane is scary. Lesson learned. Changing all tires to non chinese crap... Firestones Transforce HT. Drivebelt and transmission fluid will also be replace...i'll cross my fingers on the rest. How do i get a repair manual for this unit ? Can't figure out the drive-belt type needed.
