There are two books.. Last I knew we had one in stock at the Rummage Room of Darien but I would suggest someone more local..Most better RV stores will have one of them

one is the RV Owner's Handbook as I recall
And the other is the RV book

Both are Generic owner's manuals and will be of great assistance to you.

Here is a photo of one of them.. Alas 90 degrees off and I can not seem to rotate it.

A suggestion: find an RV park (prefer near an RV store) near your home and pay to 'camp' there for a couple of weeks while getting to know your gift. If you don't have a way to get it there find someone nearby that would help. After a couple of weeks with the manuals and living in the trailer you will have a better list of questions for sure.

b105--welcome to the forum. I know this is going to sound a little crazy, and you will have to be very careful about it these days... but I think it would be invaluable for you to have an in-person walk-through of your new RV by someone with experience. Since it's not safe for you to meet someone via some on-line forum, I wonder if you could make an inquiry at a local RV shop near where you live, ask if there is a way that you could pay a service fee, and have a professional go over all the systems with you? It would be best if you could find a dealer who sells the same brand, but that's not a requirement. Just finding an experienced RVer would do wonders... but again... be careful how you meet that person! This is why I recommended a local dealership.

Just a thought.

First...I am taking applications for traveling companion.. And a NURSE would be a very good choice,,but alas.. I'm looking for someone closer to mid60s (you are a tad young for me).. So you would not be a top candidate.

Now. to your situtation: I thought I posted the names of a couple of books (might have been elsewhere) The RV book and the RV Owner's Handbook.. Either of these (either one but not both) would be a good investement.

Also,, Go through your RV and find the make and model of most everything

The Toilet
The Fridge
Air conditioners
TV, and other "electronics"
Antenna (likely a Winegard Sensar II or III,, Same manual)
And so on... THen Google as follows

Make, Model, MANUAL

NOTE: some things, epically Microwaves and Smoke/CO2 Detectors might be re-painted other makes..My Dometic Microwave is an LG and like all LG products I have ever dealt with required modification before it worked right. But in cases like that the ID TAG (not the outside case but the product information tag) showed the LG logo.

So Google: LG model numbr Manual in this case

With MOST products you will find a downloadable PDF you can save to your hard drive... I forget if LG had one for me (but I have the original paper book) NOTE: Not all Dometic Microwaves ar LGs.

Remember your converter (The thing that makes 12 volt out of 120) or Power Center (may be same assembly)
Home is where I park it!

Wow! What a great gift he gave you! Are the manuals with the TT? If so, you can learn a lot from them.

Good luck and I think going to a RV dealership is a good idea and see if someone would do a run through with you. Lynne

Congrats on your degree and the surprise gift! You've come to a great place for advise on everything RV related. As others have suggested, google for the manuals for each appliance. The "owner's manual" provided for your trailer will be pretty generic and will tell you to refer to the appliance manuals.

Good luck and ask all the questions you need to. Knowing make & model of the appliances would be helpful for iRV2 members.
