Cool Lots to learn

Just bought a 2008 Aerolite 29RLKSL, and find the owners manual lacking in good illustrated instructions. Don't get me wrong, I like that I can find technical information & diagrams of each component (Furnace, Water Heater, Pump, etc.). But, it would be nice to have, for example, step-by-step illustrated instruction for winterizing. I am an avid DIY type, and I'm sure I can figure out most everything as I go along; it's just easier if there are visuals. Does anyone know of a detailed service manual that would give me a better hands-on feel?

There's lots of good winterizing videos on youtube. You can find almost anything rv related on there.

Believe someone sells a DVD/Book about RV'ing and the ins and outs. However from my experience every unit is different and you just have to kind of learn as you go along. Ask questions and learn, then learn some more.

I've seen those videos, and they are certainly helpful. I was just hoping for specific documentation by Dutchmen

I'll search for that DVD. I know I can figure it out; just trying to minimize trial & error. Thanks to all.

That ain't gonna happen...

You are lucky you got what you did from those clowns. Everything seems to have gone to generic manuals now. And most of them are full of CYA legalese.
