Glad to be a new member in this forum.
I have a 2016 Coachman Leprechaun FS 240. I purchased this used without a owner's manual so I am in the process of learning as much about my coach as I can. If you have any tips on this unit, I would welcome your comments.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! Owner's manuals tend to be pretty generic. You would be better off the get the model numbers of each system and Google them for manuals. Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome aboard. Always happy to see a new member.

I am sure you have already tried this but a quick google search got me to this site that give you some basic data.

https://forestriverinc.help/#/coachm...torhome/browse

A little more searching might give some more info.

Also, if you go to the Coachman sub forum here and look around, you may find someone who has the same rig that you may be able to get a line of manuals. A little while back, a guy was looking for a specific model and found a member that had one that had dies and was abandoned. He was able to get some documentation on the rig that way.

As mentioned above, locating manuals can be a real pain.

Welcome and congrats on the new rig.

You are joining a good group of folks here with good info to share. Manuals are hard to find and generally so useless to be almost useless. Google and u-tube are your friends as well as the various threads here on this forum.

Enjoy the adventure.

Small world. Back in the early 70's I started out my road construction career in Wurtland, Ky and we used tents for our first few years. Then moved to Ashland, Ky where we bought our first house and a popup trailer. Then after several transfers and several travel trailers, and motorhomes we retired to live near Lexington, Ky.

This forum is a great bunch of owners covering all makes and models. You can be assured answers to questions. Some of them are even correct!

Electric heater

Anyone have any clues as to why my electric heater would not come on in my Coachman Leprechaun FS 240? I did not have any other electric appliances up and working. I was plugged into shore power. I have read where the electric refrigerator must be off, which it was, but I could not get it to come on. I don’t think this would have anything to do with it but one of my ceiling fans wouldn’t come on either. Of course this is 12 volts dc and not 120 vac.

Thanks

It would be better for you and you will get many more responses to restate this in another part of this forum.

But to answer your question, I'm assuming you are referring to a 110 volt space heater, right? Couple of answers pop to mind. One is a GIF has tripped somewhere and the outlet is dead. Reset any GIF's your RV may have.

Secondly is a inverter, if your RV has one. They probably have a circuit breaker on them and if could be tripped.

Third would be a bad outlet either at the plug your are using, or somewhere else along that circuit.

Forth would be a standard circuit breaker has tripped.

One more thought, your RV has a 30 amp service, correct? A space heater uses about 13 amps of that 30 amps available. So I'm not sure what the refrigerator has to do with it. Even if it is a residential refrigerator it probably won't draw more than 5 amps. Now if you were using a coffee maker or a hairdryer in conjunction to the space heater then "Houston we have a problem"! Each of those can draw about 13 amps.

Just add up the amp draw for whatever is running and keep them below the 30 amps you have available.

Electric fireplace issues

What area of the forum would I place a question about an electric fireplace in my Coachman 240 FS?

Class C Motorhomes
or
