Hi all. I'm a newbie to this forum and in need of some advise.
First let me introduce myself and give some of my history. I work for a radio station in Fort Wayne, Indiana. In July the station bought a 42' 1985 Prevost XL Mirage. The bus is used to promote the station at local events and to take winners to concerts.
When I was asked to be the driver I immedately said yes. I had never driven anything this big and so far, knock on wood, no problems. It has been fun to drive and I always look forward to take it out. Although going under bridges can be a little scary. I don't know the exact height yet.
The bus came with a huge parts book but no manual. There are alot of questions I have concerning the operation that I'm sure the manual can answer for me.
I'm wondering if anyone can give me info on how to get a manual. Any info would be appreciated.
I also have a number of questions concerning the kitchen, water, bathroom, etc. Things that were put in after market.
The generator needs a new oil pan and there are no labels to tell us who made it. We have the bus serviced by Fleet Services and they cannot find the make. I even called the former driver and he did not know.
By the way, this bus was formerly owned by Paul Newman's racing team. It still has his logo on the mirror in the back of the bus.
Anyway, I'm sure I let alot of info out and I'm sure all be posting with more questions. I think a manual would be a good start to getting to know how this bus works. I need to know the do's and dont's to driving and operating. Thanks for any help. Kenny Edwards

US 93.3...
First of all...welcome to the best RV forum out there on the web!!
I will ask a couple of questions that may help you in your search along with sending you to a couple of links...
This first link... will take you into a Prevost site. You can dig around for a few hints of where else to go...
This other link..will take you to some Prevost publications ... You will also see a Parts Ordering link connected to this site. You may be able to find some stuff there also.

Do you know who did the conversion...at what location? Maybe find that and contact them..

Good luck in your search....and again...Welcome to iRV2..please post often with your questions...concers and just fun stuff that you can share!
