Default looking for help

Hi
Just bought a used 2008 FF x139. Didn't have an owners manual. How can I get one? Thanks

Health, first, welcome and congratulations! I've had two 139s -- a 2003 and now a 2012, and I'm a fan (as you can see by my screen name).

Second, the original manual for the 139 is almost useless -- it is very generic, with almost no info on the trailer itself.

But third, the manuals that really matter are easily available on the web. So, for example, figure out which fridge you have, and what model. The manufacturer of that component will probably have a manual available. Even if they don't have the 2008 manual, they will have 2009, or whatever. And there is relatively little change from year to year, in most cases.

Finally, be sure to ask lots of questions on this forum -- us old-timers love to answer them, rather than doing the things we are supposed to be doing (like work or chores).

Is this your first RV? Where are you located?

Welcome! Gonna love a little rig.
Yep like Dan says the manual is not any help. It's a sales sheet. Get the model numbers from the water heater, fridge, pump, etc. and look on-line for user info.
As far as axle specs, cleaning tanks, winterizing or roof maintenance that info was never in a manual anyway. There is much better info and even video on line and in forums.

Thank you both for your help...really appreciate it. Can either of you help with lowering the stabilizers? Is there a manual tool or is it mechanical? Thanks again

Without the manual, just need a tutorial on stabilizers, how the water systems work, including pumping out grey and brown water, etc

Google is your friend. You can find a youtube video that will walk you through just about everything.
Here's a link that explains most of what you're asking:
https://wandrlymagazine.com/article/...n-an-rv-works/

As for your stabilizers I'm going to guess that they are manual operation and look something like this: https://balrvproducts.com/products/c...stabjack.shtml
If that's the case, you should have a crank that fits over the end of the threaded rod to raise and lower the stabilizer. Or you could also have a drill bit that fits over the end to use with a cordless drill. If that's not what you have post a photo and we can give you a better answer on how to operate it/

Also - a word of caution, the jacks aren't meant to support the weight of the trailer only to stabilize it from moving. So don't use them to try to level it.

What LJAZ said.
Also look here: https://www.youtube.com/c/rved101/videos
(another helpful site) and scroll thru their videos. Probably be a big help. If you're a total newbie get ready for a learning curve. But a fun one...
