owners manual or DVD version?

Recently bought a 24ft. FBS. I have read the owners manual twice and still have trouble finding "how to" in it. I have forgotten most of the stuff that was showed to me during our walk through with the dealer. Is there a better how to manual out there? Or a dvd that I can watch and reference? Just seems a bit overwhelming right now. Thanks for your time

I have found the Jayco manuals aren't the best for trying to figure out how everything works. I have had better luck searching You Tube videos and found pretty much everything I needed.

I agree with jayfowler - I made good use of YouTube and Google when we bought our first camper. We also did our first overnight at a local campground with friends who knew what they were doing.


It is overwhelming at first, but it will become habit after the first couple of trips.


One tip I will give you - make yourself a departure checklist. It will help keep you from pulling out of a spot with the antenna up, shore power / water still connected, etc.

Youtube has been a lifesaver for me. The manual is next to useless
