Customer Question
I just purchased a 1999...
I just purchased a 1999 southwind motorhome and did not get the owners information package. Southwind sent a general information book but it keeps telling me to refer to the owners info pkg. I need information on the hydraulic jacks, auxiliary start system, slideout, etc.etc.

I've already been in contact with Fleetwood, all they sent was the general owners manual for a 99 southwind not the individual manuals w/ instructions and warranties for components and appliances such as for the hydraulic jacks, slide out, etc. I can find the manufacturer name on some stuff but not on everything. I would like to receive the entire package without going to each and every manufacturer.
Thanks for your reply but that's not exactly what I need...... Melvin

SORRY AFTER BEING IN THE R.V. BUSINESS FOR YEARS, THE PACKET IS ONLY THE PAPER WORK FROM EACH ITEM THAT IS INSTALL. IF THE PACKET IS REMOVED FROM THE COACH, IS TO CONTACT EACH MANUFACTURE, IF THE FLEETWOOD OR THE DEALER, WON'T DO IT FOR YOU. BEINGS THAT IT HAS BEEN 9 YEARS, YOUR GOING TO HAVE A HARD TIME. HAVE A GREAT DAY. THANK YOU FOR USING JUST ANSWER.

THANK YOU,
