How to library

Is there a "How to library" on this forum? I have not been able to find it if there is.
New to RVing and looking for a basic instruction for dewinterizing. I know it is in my RV's paper work. But I am at work until Sat night and need to de-winterize Sun morning. Thought I would read up on the process before I start. Just wanting to see if there are any heads up instruction I am not aware of. Did a search & found some info but not specific to basic de-winterizing.

We don't have a "how-to" section of the forum.

If we have a manufacturer's forum for your RV, I suggest posting in one of those forums.

If not, post your question in General Discussion and mention your RV make and model.

There isn't a Coachman Araura Class A Thread.
I have seen other forums with the how to library and have found it very useful. However you need some one with good experience & willing to write the articles. You need to follow the advice at your own risk. But it does help & if you are somewhat mechanical inclined you will be able to pickup on bad advice.

This forum is the how to library. If you want to know how to do something, just ask, someone probably knows how .

Forest River now owns Coachman and we have a Forest River forum that includes Coachman.

There are plans to develop a system that allows us to pull the gems from the sites on topics such as winterization/de-winterization, tank maintenance, battery maintenance, and other how tos. We do not have an ETA for this tool yet.

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

Great link Lori..... Some local RV dealers will have classes in the spring and fall for winterization/de-winterization. Once a month they would have a different topic. But since you are doing it Sunday, I think Lori's link is a good starting point....I have to wait till April 1st to even think about getting her out of storage...

Thanks Lori, thats exactly what I was looking for.

I had no idea Forest River was formerly Coachman. Thanks. I was wondering why I coldn't find it under manufacturer.

Looks like I will be de-winterizing in a downpour. To bad I am working from 7a-11p today. Today is not that bad here, just a little on the cool side. We will be heading to South FL when I am finished de-winterizing. Hopefully we will drive out of the rain sooner than later.

I know that there is alot of experience & good advice here at iRV2. But sometimes I prefer to read outlined steps and ask questions on what I don't quite understand. The link Lori suggested has a lot of good info.

Thanks to all for the advice.
Dan

More accurately, Forest River acquired the Coachman brand to add to their many existing brands.

Our owners manual for our Aerolite Cub covers many different models in different Thor lines. So everything is very generic, where this site you can some very detailed ?'s and get answers.
