Owners Manual

I recently purchased a 2014 DRV MS Estate 39 RESB3 and can't find the owners manuals. The dealer said they don't have them and that the previous owners must have taken or lost them. Can anyone direct me to where I can purchase these for this fifth wheel?

If there is a DRV owners group on here, I must have missed it.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Here's a couple of DRV forums. But......you won't find an owners manual. The binder supplied with the unit when new was full of the individual manuals for the installed equipment supplied by the various manufactures. There really isn't anything that address operation of the systems in the 5er. Just download what you need from the web.

Thanks Mike; the top url is blank, but the thor forum works and thanks again for the heads up! I figured the owners manual would only have the vendors listed and the info on each item, but thought there might be more. Disapointed that the binder is missing!

It's not like an owners manual for a car and is really useless. All the info you need is readily available on the internet with a little research.

THis is a generic post.. RV"s Both motor homes and trailers have multiple manuals
Motor homes are based on a TRUCK, get the manual for the nearest Truck Match you can find .. Chiltons or the other 3rd party Truck manual publisher.. This will cover the engine and drive train, brakes and such, NOTE you may need a few special manuals.

House. Walls, floors Ceiling and roof. Other than the roof no differnt than yoru sticks and bricks (inside) and car (outside) Roof is closest to kitchen floor. Mop with Spic& SPan and rinse well at leaxt 2x a year I use a long handle "Van Wash" brush instead of a mop on mine, Rinse with garden sprayer or auto wash sprayer.

STUFF, Including Doors, Mirrors, Fridge, Water heater, TV's Microwave Furnace Jacks, Steps, Toilets and well. just about everythign else.

Find the make and model from the ID plate and visit the manufacturer's web page for the manual for that device in PDF format for your computer.

NOTE: Dometic does NOT make Microwaves.. The model on mine traced to LG, same model neumber worked on LG's web page. ID place said LG, only the door said Dometic. I assume they buy from multiple sources. IF yours is an LG.. Good luck LG = Lucky Goldstar and I've never been that lucky (Mine does work but.. Well it's now a wa8yxm)

Thanks! I actually received the owners manual from DRV on line yesterday. There actually is a lot of information I was looking for. Like torque on wheel lugs, electrical system, etc. I understand that the appliance information can be found on their respective websites! Appreciate the comments!

If your DRV is anything like my HitchHiker there will be a sheet inside one of the cabinet doors listing all the things you have (make, model and maybe serial) That makes it easy to go to the web and find info.
