ISO owners manual

Can anyone help me locate an owners manual for a 2001 Tradewinds LTC? It is made by National, which is apparently no longer in business. Willing to purchase an original or a copy. Thanks!

Your plea is a common one on here, seems National RV owners never sell them with the manuals!

Try here: National RV Archives

Sadly, many manuals aren't worth the paper their printed on. They are often very generic, cover many models, and don't give details like, "The Auto Transfer Switch is located under the foot of the bed." or the like.

First, start by using the Teal colored search box, powered by Google, to search for '2001 National Tradewinds LTC owners manual.' You might get lucky. Then go from front to back in your RV, writing down make and model of every system you have. Then use Google to search for manuals for each item in your RV. Most are available on line with install, use, troubleshooting, and parts lists.

Finally, if you don't find your particular manual, read a couple for other brands of similar vintage. They will give you ideas on what you have and how to use it.

I had a 2002 National RV coach and the owner manual was of little practical use. It did have a dashboard layout (picture and list of functions), but not much else of value. And it was a generic manual covering several models as well. If you were thinking of something comprehensive like a car owner manual, save your time & money!
