Newport by Cobra Owners Manual Wanted.

Hi Folks, although new to this forum, I've been lurking (so to speak) on this, and some of the other forums. I've accumulate alot of good info from the good people who post on the forums. So much so that I've gone out and purchased a 1990
29' Newport by Cobra in better than average condition from the original owner. Unfortunately, he didnot keep the coach's Owners Manual, although he did have a few of the appliance manuals. Can anyone point me on the direction that may lead to a copy of the Owners Manual?
Also, an comments on Newports manufactured by Cobra (plus/minus) would be of some interest as there doesn't seem to be much said about them. Have a nice day !!

Well Duke,

You are about to find out that you have a problem. Most RV have had anything like a real owners manual. What was shipped with the unit was a looseleaf with the owner manual for the purchased parts.

One of the first things you need to find is a chassis manual. I cannot begin to help you there. It is most likely a GM or Ford, but even that is just a guess. The parts that you do not have manuals for, you may be able to find and download after a web search. You may never find wiring diagrams for the house 12V and 120V systems. Ditto for the plumbing. I suggest that you start by making up a loose leaf with all everything you can find in it and then add a bunch of clean pages for notes. Make lots of notes.
