Bonehead camper manuals....

I have gone through the manuals of my 96 Casita 17 SD, and I am having a difficult time understanding them. Doesn't anyone write in American any more? 3/4ths of the manuals deal with liability issues, and there is usually nary a drawing in sight. I can't help thinking as I read them that I could have done much better. At the very least, a graphic pictorial from Casita--showing where everything is and how it is related--would really help. Oh well, sorry for my venting. Maybe I am just a novice with lots to learn. Maybe also the folks that write camper manuals like Algebra. :r

Tony, you're right...

The Casita "manual" is a big, cruel joke. I couldn't believe it when I picked up my trailer (which I love) and then tried to read the "manual" that night at Bardwell Lake. If Casita had to work a little harder for their market share they would probably spend a little more time and money on their alleged manual as well as other materials. The serious part of such a totally incompetent piece of work is its implications about their ultimate commitment to customer service. I work in publications and that sort of thing and it would take me a week on site to produce a manual that would more than do the job. The fact is, they don't care. Hungry is as hungry does.

It's not just Casita manuals... Lately everything I get has at least 1/2 of the info dedicated to "don't do this, if you do, we won't be held liable". And is it really necessary to imprint on a plastic bag that covers your DVD player "This is not a toy, keep out of the reach of children". It's amazing I survived my childhood without all these warnings....

The Bigfoot manual was probably written by the same person! :)
