Well Mich,
The trailer works for us at the moment; I am not crazy with the layout, but the Boss likes it. If I was going to look for a different trailer tomorrow, I'd probably look at small 20 - 24 foot 5th wheels, if they make them that small. I like the overall length of ours, but I think the 5th wheel would give me more livable space for about the same overall length... However, again, the one I have works and I'll keep it for now. I have been considering a home built for quite sometime, but workspace is an issue. I am so disappointed in the overall quality and material of what I see manufactured today, and the real killer is workmanship. I am a nit-picky sort that sees the quality and pride of workmanship in this country pretty much a lost art...

Anyway, enough about that, I need to redo some of the plumbing before it bites me... I am afraid that I'll go out to drain the tank and the cheap plastic valve/pipe will snap off and I'll watch water flood the whole trailer...

I like to know how things work and why and how things are put together so they are good reading material and of assistance if/when needed.

And I must add, invaluable when one makes alterations too!
We think a lot alike Eagle, I come from a mechanical and engineering background and raised by a Dad that believed if something was worth doing, it was worth doing right. I also worked Quality Control in the Nuclear and Aviation industry which as you know is all about documentation. I can't see taking my rig in to be worked on by someone that could care less about how well the job is done, just get it done. There are enough differences in equipment that having the correct manual can make a difference in how it should be repaired and/or adjusted... And I really hate having to do it a second time because the first time was done incorrectly...

Good going Chas,
I didn't go to the trouble of making an electronic copy, but it sounds like a good idea. The manual stays in the trailer in an overhead cabinet. It is a bit of a hassle to go grab the book, but there are a lot of pen changes, notes, and photos of things that need reference from time to time. I might go to the trouble of making electronic copies if it was new, but I'm almost 4 years into this one...

Hi John, where we are camping there is a rv dealer,but just talking to him was not pleasant, so hubby says we will wait till we get home and scout around for one that is familiarwith a/c units..
We are actually third owners,but did come with manual except the air.
