Red face Pop Up Newbies

Hello all. We are new here. Just got our first diamond in the rough. It is a Jayco J Series 1008 Sg I think. From 1988. I am looking for an owners manual. Does anyone know where I can find one?
Thanks a bunch!!

I just googled 1988 jayco pop up manuals and had several hits. See if any of these may be what you are looking for. I believe one manual probably covers several models. Hope this helped.

Hi Folks:

I am picking up a 1993 Jayco Cardinal pop up on Saturday. I have always had a class C or A motorhome. I was looking for some towing advice. I have a 2012 Nissan pathfinder, I was just wondering what kind of ball hitch I need, also the trailer connection, I suspect it is a 4 connection on the older models.

Lastly, from my reading you do not use electric brakes with these as they have hydraulics? Please let me know if there is anything else I should know.

Thanks,
John

joyco cardinal towing

jcassidy,

generally the ball is a 2" and it usually has the 4 pin connector. The cardinal usually has the hydraulic brake unit because it is a heavier 2-axle popup. but it is simple to hookup and tow. your pathfinder might feel it a little back there, but it should be fine.

Shanzy, you can also call Jayco with your vin number and they will send you an electronic copy, from that era.

Hi There:

Thank you very much, definitely much assistance. I will let you know how it turns out. Seeing as I am a newbie, I can ask dumb questions for a while. Why doesn't Jayco make these anymore? They are one of the best I have seen from any manufacturer. I suspect cost is the main reason, as I would suspect they would go for 20k nowadays, I was just wondering.

Thanks,
John
