For us here?  From the first made up to the 1990s.  That's about the time the chassis and technology really started to change.

OZ,  :)clap


Okay I figured it out. Wow! downloaded two manuals already.

Sorry, guess I am so use to being ripped off! My reference to simple machine was from previous experience as an admin.

While I didnt find any info specific to my Itasca, what I did find will help. Gonna dive in. I dont know about others, but I dont go a single day without pangs of buyers remorse.

thanks

In case you didn't know, Itasca is the same as Winnebago.  Service and part info for the chassis will be the same, and if you find body and coach wiring diagrams they should be about spot on.

All appliance and generator info is standard equipment by other manufacturers and a lot of info on that is here.

You will find that 1978 was kind of an "odd" year for Itasca. The Itasca line generally used Chev chassis where Winnebagos used Dodges. But in '78, they built some Itascas on Dodge chassis. Here is the link to the brochure, you can see that the chassis is listed.

The link to all the Winnebago brochures is also in the member area as well as in a specific topic.


It takes a little longer but,t, the reason I process all orders manually and send every purchase acknowledgement message individually, is to ensure that our members do get exactly what they pay for and get my personal help if they have any problems.

That's becoming rare, these days.

Visitors can view our boards so they can see just how interactive and helpful our community is.  We typically have between 150 - 200 visitors viewing our boards at any given time!

bbcode should work.  Type what you want, then highlight it and click on the bbcode icons.  It doesn't appear if you use the quote or quick reply options, as I am now, unless you enter the code manually.  Like this
