Default Roadtrek owner manuals from 1987 to present

Roadtrek owner manuals from 1987 to the current models are located here

http://www.roadtrek.com/manuals.aspx

I've always been impressed that they took the time to do this.

I've seen this site... is there anywhere I can find the floor plans for the older RT's? Thanks!

It's too bad they don't make one for the Ranger.

The new manuals including the Ranger are coming soon. In "about a month" is the official word.

Interesting, and a whole lot better than the old ones were!

I just went quickly through the e-trek and CS manuals. e-trek still says 1600AH of battery (not rated at 12v obviously), the CS says 190/380AH so must be at 12 volts. That would also indicate you can't get the 8 batteries in the CS, I think. Generator is listed for the CS. Run time on battery specs are non-existent and lots of warnings about using too much power from the AC, cooktop, oven, instant water heater. Glad to see they are more realistic of the real world. CS says not to run the AC while driving off the 2500 watt engine generator and inverter for very long, and not at all on propane while driving. e-trek says 6 year warranty covers batteries, but was a bit sketchy as to defining defective batteries down the road.

There was a section on charging that listed the 3500 watts from the engine generator, the charge from the shore power charger, the solar charger would all be available to charge, but I don't think they really would unless the charge voltages matched perfectly. Maybe I misunderstood how they stated it.

Seeing it all in one place about the e-trek and CS seems to confirm what appeared to be coming, mainly that even Roadtrek is backing of the air conditioning on batteries, as it was not really mentioned in the manual. Because of that, the e-trek would be a tough sell in hot areas, at least to us, as there is no way I would idle the van all day or night. With running the AC off batteries out of the picture, the CS really looks like a much better option with solar, propane generator, 380AH of batteries, and the 2500 watt engine generator, plus a better layout IMO. You could be off grid pretty much as long as you wanted, and had propane and tank space (plus some sun).

Glad to see that they are getting their literature in order, it has been a weak spot for a long time, and probably one of the biggest complaint areas on the Yahoo Roadtrek forum.

I'm glad to see current manuals available too. I haven't taken a look at any yet but probably will soon.
