I just bought a gently used 2017 Mallard M27 model from a private seller. He gave me a generic manual that applies to heartland 5th wheels, trailers, and toy haulers. Is there a manual that is specific to my particular model? I did not get the benefit of the dealer walk through and this is my first travel trailer. Needless to say, I don't even know where to start with figuring out what does what and where things are located. Thanks in advance.

The manuals that we get are pretty generic.
Your best source of answers to your questions is right here on this Heartland Owners Forum.

Peace

Hi Sharpsburg,

We also have a number of owner-written user guides (http://manuals.heartlandowners.org/?man=User%20Guides) that fill in many of the details not covered in the owner's manual. While not specific to the Mallard, you may find them helpful.

Thanks. Will check out the user created versions. It's hard to ask questions of other owners when I don't even know what to ask (if that makes sense LOL). But hopefully the user manuals will provide a starting point. Thanks again!

x2 Dave, everyone here is very helpful.

Here is the link to Heartlands generic manuals. https://www.heartlandrvs.com/resources/utilities-menu/owners-manuals

Also, do you have any friends that own a TT? If so, see if he/she would give you a how to run through. Many of the functions/operations are similar across makes and models. ie: pumping out tanks, filling tanks, hot water heater, a/c.

If you are a visual person, Youtube is also a good spot.

Congrats on your purchase~

thanks. We are excited about the upgrade from an old pop up. This trailer is like a luxury hotel compared to the pop up. I believe I have the black gray fresh water tank issues worked out thanks to YouTube. But was hoping for some form of manual or diagram showing where everything is so I can familiarize myself with the various parts. I think we will "camp" in our yard for a weekend and explore to see what we don't know and what we need to learn.

Try and go to a rally. There you can talk to other owners and for sure they will help you out with any questions you have. The folks here are great and willing to help.

Good idea. If one comes to the southeast, I certainly will try to make it.

Hi there... We (I) was also flabbergasted after our first TT purchase and the rather quick walkthrough. Besides the aforementioned sources, we have found that just talking to camping neighbors yields a ton of information, help, shortcuts and tips.
Might even lead to onsite help from well equipped campers, which then results in an increased Amazon shopping cart after the trip --lol
