    Owners Manual for a 1986 El Dorado????

    Here you are...

    The list below covers all different types of RV related manuals you may need. Please peruse to find the sites applicable to your specific requirements.

    You should try to obtain the specific manual for each appliance. Go to their website, find their phone and/or address, contact them for manuals. Generally, the actual coach owner’s manual is not that helpful.

    For the motorcoach, you will have better luck finding manuals for the chassis model, (Ex: Chevy P-30) rather than the RV name, (Ex:pace Arrow).

    For the future benefit of other requesters, please let me know whether or nor this list helped you. If you find other resources for manuals I don’t have listed, please forward them to me so I can pass them on.

    Please contact me @ Russ748@Adelphia.Net if I may be of further assistance on any other RV resources or issues.

    Best Regards,

    Russ Ritenour

    AIRSTREAM MANUALS
    Q: I need an owners and service manual for my Airstream. Where can I get one?
    A: The first owners manuals were published in 1964. Prior to that, the owner received a brown envelope containing parts lists and other helpful information on the accessories in his trailer. The VAC has started making these available in the Members Archive section. A service manual with instructions for performing service operations did not exist until 1972.
    You can get photocopies of owners manual (1964+) and service manuals (1972-1986) from:

    Helen Davis Secretarial Services
    PO Box 484 Sidney, OH 45365
    (937)492-8885

    Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively. After 1986 the Owners Manuals included available service information.
