Mark,

Service manuals are non-existent, Dutchmen has does have the owners manuals which are very generic and can cover several models. This will get you to their archived documentation, select you year then the model and it will get you to what came with the camper.

Hi Mark,

What are you trying to service? There is a lot of generic information on the web that can help you out. As Jim pointed out the owner's manual is pretty generic. Ya seen one, ya seen them all.

I have a 2001 Thor Fifth Ave fifth wheel. I'm having a problem with the carpet in the living room coming up when I slide in the slideout. I would like to have a service manual for repairs like this and general knowledge. I bought this unit used from the original owners but they don't have it any longer. This is crazy for me because I can get a manual for my 1968 Chrysler 300 and my 1948 Harley with no problem!!! I know welcome to the RV industry!!!! LOL

And that Chrysler manual will be chock full of useful info. Not so with the manual you are looking for. I bought a used Dutchmen's last year and the owner had all of the paperwork, which was pretty cool. The manual for the trailer itself is totally useless. While I have had no problems to date I have made many mods. Your best bet is to watch the forums and learn from the experienced people. Engineers know how things are supposed to work, mechanics know how they actually do work.

Yep, this forum IS your service manual. The folks in here have tackled almost anything you will face.
