Default New Owner of 1986 Dodge Xplorer - looking for manual / suggestions

New to this forum and to van life / ownership!

Boyfriend and I recently bought a 1986 Dodge Xplorer XtraVan of the 222 model. In general is in pretty good shape, except for the interior which we plan on gutting and renovating anyway.

Previous owner is currently looking for manual, but not sure if he will find so in the mean time have been scouring the internet and unfortunately coming up empty handed.

Does anyone have a manual / pdf file they would be able to help out with?

AND / OR any suggestions from current / previous owners of this model for when we start the re-model of the van?

Thanks so much!

What information are you expecting the manual to have for you?

Most motorhome "manuals" are envelopes that have the appliance paperwork, and maybe some really generic information about stuff like filling and dumping tanks and turning on the water pump.

If you have specific questions, you'll probably have better luck asking questions here.

What are you planning to do for a "remodel?" Nice looking van, BTW.

RV manuals are not very helpful. Do you have any specific questions or issues at this time?

Did you look on this page (about manuals) of the forum to see if any are posted that would be helpful to you? Owner Manuals - Class B Forums
