I doubt you will get help from Winnebago.
The shop manuals are CHASSIS manuals, not Winn.
I would try Ebay.

As jenks60 said, the chassis shop manuals you may be interested in are actually chassis manuals. You need to know what chassis and year you have. It is not uncommon that your chassis may be one model year older than you motorhome. You will need to check the chassis vin to find out. I was able to get a complete set of chassis manuals from ebay for a reasonable price.

The owner's manuals for the house portion are normally a collection of user manuals from the respective manufacturers of the appliances installed in the motorhome by Winnebago. Check the web sites, they may be able to provide manuals that can be downloaded. I have downloaded all the manuals for my coach and copied them to a CD to carry with me. If you have specific items you need, let us know, maybe we can point you in the right direction.

I got the chassis manuels given the vin# direct from Chevy.When I contacted Winnebago they ref'ed me to the local dealer and he requires the numbers off the tag from Winnebago on the drivers door jam.Winnebago said even thro it was a 1981 they have them on file but I had to order them from the parts dept of that local dealer.I am thinking what Winnebago is talking about is owner's manuels and what I really want is shop manuels for the home itself.Once I have gone to the dealer I guess I can ask if from them if I can get the shop manuels.I remember seeing a section on the forum here that offers maneuls,but I forgot where it was.

I think what you are referring to as a shop manual for the house portion, Winnebago refers to as a "parts manual" for your model home. This may or may not be available for your unit. It is a book completely listing all parts used to assemble the unit along with exploded drawings and part numbers. They also have electrical and plumbing schematics posted on the web for later models. Again, yours may be too old to be included on the web.

For something like your fridge - if you know the brand and model number you can go to Bryant RV, scroll down the page to find your model and download the complete service manual. This is the manual the service techs use. Also on the same web site you can find the original service manuals. You may also find the manuals for your furnace and water heater here among others.

Chris Bryant runs an RV service center in Florida and had been kind enough to post the manuals on his web site. Wish I lived closer, bet he is a capable and honest service tech. If you have other manuals you are looking for, send him an email and he may be able to give you the web location to find them. He kindly helped me out that way on an uncommon item.

Hope at least some of this information is helpful.

Right now Lichtsinn has a 20% off offer on old Winnebago and Itasca manuals. They say they have them from 1967 forward. You might want to check with them to see if they have what you are looking for.

I didn't think of Lichtsinn here at this link, check through their web site. There is a link on the site to email the parts dept. They have been very helpful in the past, and usually have the best prices on Winnebago parts.

Yes,Lichtsinn did have a parts section for my 1981 Warrior Winnebago which has the model number of WC723RH.I will call their 800 number this wk to see what info I can get and then see who still has the parts around based on the part numbers.These MH's are a never ending learning curve which is ok,makes it interesting.
