What is missing?

Hi we bought a slightly used 2018 Freedom Elite 26HE from a dealer. There were no manuals of any kind. I have been downloading manuals but I was wondering If there are other things we were missing. The Ford E350 chassis has power locks but we only have keys. Did it originally have a pair of key fobs? Did the Axxera radio come with dual mirroring connections? I am pretty sure it came with a waste basket under the sink which we don't have. Luckily we have the TV and dvd player remotes. Were there any other loose gadgets that originally came with it?

That is about right..very few manuals come with them when new either.

I wonder if Thor's owner resources page will work for Freedom Elite owners? You could try it:
https://www.thormotorcoach.com/owner-resource/
Register with your VIN and see if any documents come up.

(I see no such login/owner resources link on the Freedom Motorhomes page: https://freedom-motorhomes.com/ )

Former owner kept everything or dealer misplaced the black bag containing the manuals, spare key etc. Yes to the dual mirroring on the radio, yes to the key fobs and yes to the waste basket. The waste basket is a Serilite available at Walmart.

I went to the owners resource page and was offered about 51 different manuals for almost all the component parts. It's a great resource.

Congratulations on finding yourself the right rig!
But it DOES seem that the prior owner (and perhaps the dealership) didn't give you all of what they had...
Good luck in tracking down the missing stuff!

Mine didn't come with keyfobs. There was a black bag of manuals and a trashcan.

No trash can with ours, no biggie to us, but the ignition keys had separate door lock fobs.
The ignition keys do not have a chip in them, to me that is okay, we went and had a spare one made as a hide-a-key for like $5.

We bought our Freedom Elite, used, in September.
It came with one set of keys and a single remote lock key fob.
We were told by the dealer that a second set of keys was turned in when the RV was traded but, they couldnít find them. I made myself a nuisance at the dealer chasing the second set of keys to the point that they sent me to a locksmith to have a second set of keys cut on their nickel. However, I had to get a second fob on my own.
Went to a Ford dealer only to be told that the existing fob was not a Ford product. After researching further, I found that Thor had installed an aftermarket system. Found a replacement fob on Amazon and purchased it. However when I tried following the programming instructions I could not get the fob to program.
I dug under the cab floorboards and found the remote lock controller. It was supposed to have an LED indicator and programming switch plugged into it for programming a fob. It did not. For whatever reason, Thor installed a remote lock system minus the components needed to program it.
Iíve contacted the after market remote lock company about purchasing the necessary components but have yet to get a reply.
I guess having one fob is better than no fob.

Yeah, When I got my truck years ago, I noticed the prior owner had kept all the 'how to' books and the repair sheets in a compartment. So I bought a hardback notebook, some laminated plastic sheets and put together a logbook of sorts. I bought a car, did the same thing and for my RV too. Also called Thor and got some electrical diagrams e-mailed. Let's me know when I need to get things done, if I already did it and if I want to take it to a repair shop instead. A pain to put together but later on it helps.

You'll need it. A bottle of asperian, maybe some beers.

just off the top of my head

key fobs from Ford
curtain for the windshield
remotes
no trash can
I think there was one of those RCA type cables to plug something into the dvd player...just like always used to come with things like tv's and vcr's
the Thor manual for the RV is generic and worthless, so nothing lost there.
the typical manuals for AC, furnace, fridge, etc... all of which are probably what has already been downloaded

I can't think of anything else

Manuals

Before I took delivery of my Thor Compass I knew all of the components and knew from this forum that the Black Bag from Thor was lacking most of the needed manuals, so spent a few days downloading and printing the ones I needed to know most, and have the rest on a flash drive for easy access .

That 'black bag' of mine has all my manuals and two maintanance logs so far. The Thor schematics are there too, as well as the plumbing and sewer diagrams. Kinda wish the schematics were better though.
