Welcome to the forum Marty. I'm from 'Jersey too. Exit 13
You're wrenching skills will come in handy with your new used RV. Which model Freedom Spirit do you have? Have you taken it camping yet? Are you going to winterize it yourself?
Back to maintenance. One thing you'll find is that there's really no users manual that covers all maintenance/repair for your rig. Here's a generic one for all Dutchmen 2010 models :
So what you have to do instead is find pdf manuals for each piece of equipment you have such as the refrigerator, stovetop, AC, commode, etc. A lot of these will be on the dutchmen website here :
Dutchmen RV Customer Service
Click "Manuals,parts and archived literature" link and then click "parts manuals".
You'll see everything from chassis-frame to monitor systems although you probably won't find a system electrical, plumbing, or framing diagram. I haven't personally requested these from Dutchmen but supposedly you can.
And of course, posting here will get you answers you need fast and friendly.
