Looking for 1992 fleetwood owners manual

I want to introduce ourselves and would love some help learning about our 1992 Fleetwood Wilderness 5th wheel trailer. We bought our trailer a month ago and just started going through and learning about the operations.

We have no manual and have looked everywhere online and eBay. We our in our 70ís and new to start glamping. We were die hard tent campers but our bones are getting to brittle now, LOL.

We canít even find the switch to convert from electricity to battery and need help learning about this 5th wheel. Anyone that can help us would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much in advance,

Sharon

Hello and welcome.

Who manufacturers your Fleetwood 5th wheel? Looking online I see it appears to be from the former Fleetwood RV company before the REV Group purchased them. It’s not a Winnebago product.

You might try looking for info from their forum. Here’s a link to their brand forum at IRV2.com: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f107/

Good luck

A second bit of info, if you are not familiar with RV, is a hint on how we may have to search for info.
Like our house, the RV is made of several groups of parts and those part are often made by different people who have their own manuals!
So we look for things that are made by the RV builder but often other things like frig, stove and furnace are bought by the rV builder and we need to find brand, make and model of the specific item we want to know about if we want really good specific info.

The RV manual if you can get one, will be somewhat generic and good for finding some things like drains, etc. But for the best info on things like how to work the furnace and certainly how to repair it, we need to go to the manual from the furnace builder!

Kind of like at home? If we want to know about the front door, the builder may know, but if we want to know much about the frig or furnace, we need to ask the folks who build it as the home builder may only know how to open the door on it!

Point on the electrical? There are two sets of wiring in trailers.
One is the regular 110 AC that we have in a house and powers things like microwave, Air conditioner, and the electrical outlets.
This 110 power also powers some form of converter which changes the AC power to 12volt Dc power. A box that hums when you are plugged in?
This DC power then runs most of the smaller things like vent fans, lights and controls for things like the frig and furnace. Any excess 12 volts not used right away is stored in batteries and used when you are not plugged in.
Got a switch , often somewhere near the entry door for battery cutoff when we store the RV?
If the lights don't work, try changing that switch as a tricky one to know about when first looking at the new toys!

We've all been there and still have to do the same search every time we switch RV, so just go with the flow until you get better info?
Best of luck on the new game!
