Question 1974 Dodge Minnie Winnie

My husband and I just purchased a 1974 Dodge Minnie Winnie...kind of as our summer project as it needs some work. We quickly discovered that we know NOTHING about a Minnie Winnie...not about the tanks, the a/c (which leaks into the ceiling) or anything else except we thought it was cute and it ran good. To top it off, it didn't come with an owners manual. Can anyone tell me where we can find and books or manuals on how to actually operate it? We don't even know what most of the switches are for! Thanks in advance.

Sorry , I can't help with manuals for you MH, but I worked for Dodge when the chassis was new, so I could answer questions on that. At the time 2 manufacturers were operating in the area, Vanguard & Frontier ( Canadian ) so being the only Dodge shop we saw a ton of the chassis.
If you could post the brand names and model numbers of your equipment ; fridge , water heater, A/C ; members should be able to help with links or the documents themselves.

While Winnebago has some of the best online resources of any manufacturer, they don't go back to 1974. Here's a Minnie Winnie owner's manual from 1996.

http://www.winnebagoind.com/resource...nnieWinnie.pdf

They are pretty generic, if you read through this one it will give you good information about many of the features of your RV. For specific appliances and systems, do a Google search for manufacturer and model # followed by the word "manual."

I would think your first job would be to stop the leak in the roof. The wood structure of the roof will rot and be a mold issue if not corrected and dried out. The air conditioner has a foam seal between the underside of the A/C and the roof. If you take off the cover the A/C is generally held to the roof by 4 large screws. Get the seal from an RV dealer or service center.

Any seams in the roof that need re-sealing, Dicor Self-leveling caulk is the RV gold standard. Also seams can be covered with EternaBond Tape, available at Lowes and RV parts places. Don't use silicone caulk, it fails and then nothing else sticks where the silicone was.

Has the Minnie Winnie brochures back to 1972, I have not looked to see if they have manuals.
