Hi,
Have a friend who just bought a 1992 Falcon Class B on a Chevy chassis. She can't find any owner's manual, might someone out there know how to get one?

Thanks,

I am unfamiliar with your rig ...but in most rigs the "manual" isn't worth squat and in older rig probably even less so. The chassis stuff you may have to rely on "chevy" and the interior stuff is going to have to come from manuals from the individual mfg (microwave, water heater, etc). How everything is connected and where the wires run etc is something your your going to have to investigate on your own.

At 28-29 years old, she will need help to determine if the chassis, engine etc and living area appliances are working correctly. Check tire manufacture dates too.

Don't know about the complete RV's owner manuals, but she can easily get the chassis manual. Just go to any Chevy dealer's parts dept and have them look up the manual number for her specific chassis model. With that, commercial manual houses like faxon or the motorbookstore should have original or copies for sale of the GM shop manuals.

I was able to get a compete set of original GM shop manuals with all supplements on a CD and they threw in a copy of the original chassis cab owners manual from an online manual house, and, since mine is a Winnebago product, they have all their owner manuals available.

May have to go on a prolong hunt until one pops up.

At the moment we are trying to get the water heater and the furnace working. Neither show any signs of life. Furnace fan won't run. Checked fuses, water in heater, LP ok (lit stove burners), battery charged etc. She has the wrong owner's manual for the water heater. Am suspecting the switches are bad and/or solenoid valves. Any suggestions?
I have a photo of the water heater box (lots of rust) and would post it if I can figure out how.

Go to this link and upload your photo to it. Then copy the photo link you get from that website into your post using the photo icon at the top of the posting window (see below).

Thanks, here is the photo (I think it's an old Suburban DSI type, am I right?):[image]
Anyone recognize it from around 1992?
I have read elsewhere that the solonoids often go bad, especially the one closest to the tank. Either drippage onto it from the TPR valve or temp cycling does it. They said to remove the leads and measure resistance, should be around 40ohms. Solonoids, maybe, could be replaced by a tech, or more likely the whole valve. Probably would be be better replacing the whole heater, given its appearance, if we can't get it working.
Thanks,
Chuck

Glad you were able to post the photo but I have no idea what it is. It does appear to be way past its prime though. [emoticon]

A water heater in a 1992 Falcon camper van, Class B. I explained earlier, should have repeated it. It's LP only, not electric. Can't get any gas to flow.
