Hi Everyone,

New to the forum and we have a 2007 Dutchmen 31P and will be using it a lot in the next few years. I have a problem, I don't see anything about my RV. I can't find anything, zero. So where do I look or do I use a similar RV? Thanks for looking and hope you can get me going in the right direction.

Are you saying you don't have any owners manuals or other literature?
Most of the manuals are pretty generic. If you can't come up with anything, try Google.
Good luck, and welcome to the forum.

I have the Four Winds International Owners manual..... and its not worth much, I have all the other manuals for the appliances. I have a lot of wonderment... so why do I need to use the remote battery switch on the dash for sometimes to start the RV?

The good news is that RVs, like boats, are largely assembled from 3rd party components. About the only thing made by the RV maker is the frame, cabinets, and upholstery. All of the appliances, fittings, water pump, converter/inverter/power distribution system and so on are assembled from 3rd party components.

So chances are when you need to fix something, parts and manuals will be readily available - which I suppose is one reason RV manuals are horrible... not much unique information to put in there in the first place.

Other than perhaps a good wiring diagram...

You can download a Four Winds manual which while not exactly for your unit, will probably have applicable general information that might be useful to you... such as how to dump the black and grey water tanks (and the need to keep the black water tank shut off between dumps), that you need to be somewhat level for the slideout and fridge to work, and so on.
