Winnebago Parts Catalog and iOS

Does anyone know how to make the Winnebago parts catalog viewable on iOS platforms? In the age of ipads I would think this has finally been updated, but still can't seem to find out how to do it. I also have a Mac laptop.

Print in a pdf format, than send it to your "Books" app for easy viewing.

We use a VM (Parallels) on our Mac laptop to run Win 10, that way we can run MSIE and view Winnebago’s 3D parts list website.

I know that MS is beta testing a Mac version of it’s Edge browser, but I don’t know if the Winnebago parts list Addon necessary to view the parts list can run run on anything other than Internet Explorer.

I needed Win10 to run a non-Mac device on my laptop, so I installed Parallels and Win10 for that purpose. Using it for the Winnebago parts list is just a lucky byproduct.

Thanks for the info on the VM Parallels - looking into that now. Wondering if I do the free trial and then could download the catalog into Books like WinnebagoSC suggested. For me, there is no other reason to have the VM other than the occasional need to look at the parts catalog. Thoughts?

I’ve never tried to download any pages so I don’t know. Thing is it’s interactive. So you click on a sub assembly or part and then it highlights the part number. I have no idea how you’d down load everything and then find things. But as I said I don’t know if it can be downloaded or not as I have not tried.

It’s both super helpful the way it works and a huge pain too. We needed some parts and the repair place had rules against installing the needed browser Addon on their corporate system. So it was my job to find part numbers for them. It’s helpful in that yo can really drill down into sub assemblies.

Sorry I’m not more help.

Ps. Even if you download the trial Parallels program you’d still need Windows to install. You could use Win 7 or 8 or 10 or 10.1. But it does not come with Parallels.

On any Apple product without "Paralles," or something similar you cannot view the Wineebago 3d information.



I run Paralles on my Macs and it works well. Easy to TAB switch between Windows apps and Mac apps.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

How? Exactly. Did you do that? Would be the question.

In 2011 Winnebago went from PDF to the more robust Cortona 2D and 3D viewers. I have a 2001 Adventurer so this does not impact me however if you own one of the newer coaches you would need to be able to load the Cortona Viewer Plugins in your browser.

Cortona works with IE11 and higher on the Windows Platform however there is a version in the IStore for Apple products.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cort...er/id471275514

Note that newer Apple products being made overseas use a cheaper alternative to quartz crystals in their clock chips which will fail permanently if certain light gases are present such as helium. People working in buildings with equipment that uses helium such as CAT Scan machines found this out the hard way. Once these bargain chips absorb a light gas they race up until they fail completely. One could face failures from using aerosol parts cleaners or any other product that off gasses light vapors that are incompatible with the newer Apple Products that use these chips.

Yes. I didn't know that the models older than 2011 had that option. Now the only option for parts and various layouts and diagrams is via Internet Explorer with the Cortana Viewer addon installed.

There is no way to download to a PDF.

And, Neil, I did a search for your warning about Apple products and "light gasses" and found only one or two mentions of this. But certainly nothing general or widespread. It doesn't seem like much of a worry to the average user.

Sorry, but not the Parts Catalog - not for anything newer than 2010

There are plumbing and wiring diagrams in PDF format.

For the Parts catalog what is there is a link to the Interactive parts list that requires Internet Explorer on a Windows computer with a special 2d/3d viewer addon.
