New Class A owner, but excited about it.

Hello,
just bought a 1999 National RV tradewinds Diesel pusher 36.6. Going to have to get used to the big rig. I sold my 30 ft toy hauler because I want to haul my classic Jeepster Commandos to Moab, events and just vacationing. I wanted something that could handle it and not stay in a hotel, tent, track or what not. Plus I get to eat my own food.


One thing I could sure use help with is an owners manual. The previous owner went to jail and kind of stripped the electronics, generator and left no paper \work. I happened to find his name and looked it up. That is how I discovered his info. Dealer bought it from wholesale. Guessing the government took it for back taxes.
Russell

I Googled my coach name and year and got a link for my owner's manuals. Try that. If not, I guess my idea was not that great. I know someone on here will have an idea what to do to find them.

But in the mean time, Congratulations!! Enjoy the new coach!!

Head over to the National RV Owners Forum and check out some of the resources there. Maybe posting your questions in that forum will get more specific info. While you're there join your fellow National RV owners by becoming a member.
Enjoy your adventure

A thought keeps passing through my head find a close Law Enforcement agency that has a drug dog and see if they'll do a sweep of your unit unless you know what the PO went to jail for.

Better safe than sorry.
