just bought a 1972 holiday vacationer and could use all the info i can get

Hello out there
My name is c.j. and I am new to the camper thing. I just bought a 1972 holiday that looks to be in great shape but some of the lights don't work and the power inverter keeps clicking on and off and it would be great if someone could tell me a little about this camper and maybe the know about of where to get an owner's manual.

Your '72 Holiday

Congrats on your vintage purchase. Unless you are a competent electrician [I'm not] you need to bring it to one. If you are on a budget try driving it to an electricians shop instead of taking it to an RV dealer and leaving it. Make sure you bring a power cable extension cord to plug in your system so he can look at it. Try saying: "Can you take a quick look at my converter, I've got cash?" It it takes him less than a few minutes he might not charge you anything. Make sure you "buy him lunch" with a $10 or $20 bill. You'll probably be back sooner or later and it's the right thing to do.

The electricians shop probably knows more than the RV dealer and may be able to either fix it on the spot or tell you whats wrong with your old converter. [It's probably junk and needs to be replaced, its older than some rock stars for Gods sake.]

Forgot to tell you to go online and google your make and model and year MH. It will not only return clubs and associations with a wealth of info. but may lead you to an ebay auction for a manual on your rig.
