Does anyone have a link to a 1996 Newmar Dutch Star 3730DP owners manual?

I've been searching and searching and all I can come up with is a brochure. The MH didn't come with most of the manuals

Thanks in advance!

The appliances , fridge , stove , water heater , etc. should all be available from the manufacturers web sites .
Some electrical items , converter , power transfer switch , may be from a failed company ; Todd Engineering ; so you won't have any luck there . I do have manuals for my coach from Todd , but they may not apply to your older unit .
Having read through my 99 owners manual , I'd think you would be better off making your own notes as you go.
Post model numbers or pictures of anything you don't understand here in the forums , and we'll do our best to bring you up to speed.

"007" should be along soon , to check your post , and from my experience if he doesn't have access to it , it doesn't exist on the internet.

Have you been through the " Sticky Posts " at the start of the listing of all posts , in the Newmar Owners section of the forums , there are days worth of reading material there.

The owner's manual, especially from older RVs, really tell you nothing. I would suggest you make a list of all your components/appliances (i.e. refrigerator, AC, hot water heater, furnace, etc) and look for manuals for them. I think you will find they will give you much more info re parts, troubleshooting, etc.

I think that the OG that I have for my 97 has quite a bit of info in it - 149 pages of info. I don't even remember now where I got it but it has gotten me through a lot. Sure, it is coach focused and not individual component focused. Hopefully 007 can help you find one.

Hey Mez, did you sign up for a Newgle account at Newmarcorp.com? I looked in my account and there was a link to the Owners Guide. Maybe you'll find it there?
As for component specific info (i.e. HWH, Suburban, etc) you'll have to go to the OEM and download the documents, as others have mentioned.

I have a 95 and although it had most of the OM, I found that by calling newmar and spartan, I could use the 99 as most is the same. Having a great time working on it and can’t wait to start posting pics! My issue continues to be in transmission and that manual is very well hidden. My guess is that it is somewhere in the wiring as the Tcm was reworked due to a past no start issue or a programming issue. Anyone’s Allison 3060 just shut down��?
