Welcome, here's a link to a lot of good information from Winnebago, much of it specific to your year and model:

https://winnebagoind.com/product-res...ct-information

In addition to the wiring, plumbing diagrams, etc., the Service Tips are valuable for all years and models.

Where in Germany are you located and do you know how your rig found its way to Germany?

Post some more photos for us when you get a chance.

If you set up a signature, you can list your year and model so, when you post, you don't have to input it each time.

Hi,
the pre owner told me that the first owner (a teacher) had shipped the rig from US to Germany.
I will check all the papers in the next days.
THX for you nice replays.

We're looking forward to some travel reports and photos.

I assume this is a pretty big rig for Europe but I saw a video of a double-decker bus conversion in the Netherlands of all places.

Welcome to the forum. Europe has so many things to see that it must be a great place for an RV, but I do not know if there are many campgrounds for RVs.

Stay safe on the road.

Hi all,
We live in Wales (UK) and have travelled all around Europe in our Winnebago Brave 27RC. You do need to check, but most campgrounds can accommodate RV up to 30ft with ease and many can also take you BIG BOYS

I am rather surprised to see such a large RV in Germany.


I was in Berlin, last April, and saw several RV's parked in the streets but they were all quite small.


Did someone have to make major changes to the RV's electrical system for the 220V in Germany?


Enjoy your travels!!
