Trying to Post an Owners Manual
« on: March 22, 2021, 10:43 PM »
  I tried to attach  the "OWNERS Manual" for the 1970 Lifetime Motorhome but the site said the file was to large. It was only 37 pages.      RVSteve

Number of pages doesn't matter.  File size does.  An owner's manual that's 40 pages can be 20mb or 500mb, depending on what the quality settings are when scanned.

What manual are you trying to upload and what is the file size?

Yeah, that's too big.  Way too big to post as an attachment in a post.  Max for the Gallery "album" for manual uploads is 10mb.

Isn't there a manual section where a file that size can be posted? I thought the site was looking for manuals to classic rigs or maybe I misunderstood?    Steve

Oz, What's the procedure for uploading the owners manual? I don't see any props on the link you sent to start the process.        Thanks, Steve

Hi Oz, Is it not possible to post my owners manual considering what the site  message said in my last email to you? Not sure why this would be problem for a manual page.
