campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your dealer, or Starcraft.
   To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline toll-free at 1 -800/424-9393 (or 366-0123 in Washington, D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S.

                  IMPORTANT INFORMATION
                                    TENT FABRIC CARE AND MAINTENANCE
PRE CONDITIONING;
It is important to precondition your canvas before your first camping trip by using the following steps:
         1. Set-up camper making sure all windows are zipped closed and all vents and doors are closed.
         2. Using a spray, rather than a stream, from your garden hose thoroughly wet entire canvas and allow to dry.
         3. After drying spray again and check for any leaks to the interior of the camper.
         4. Any stubborn leaks may be sealed using 3M Scotch Guard Protector for fabric in aerosol spray following directions
             on the container.
         5. Complete application is recommended to further resist any staining that may occur as well as provide complete water
             repellency.
         6. Allow to completely dry before closing down unit.

CLEANING
Suggested cleaning procedure for all Tent Fabrics are as follows:
        1. Use clean tap water with mild detergent and soft bristle brush, then rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
            DO NOT USE HARSH DETERGENTS, SOAPS OR SOLVENTS SINCE THEY MAY REMOVE WATER
            REPELLENCY.
            DO NOT USE AEROSOL TYPE CLEANERS
            DO NOT USE INSECT REPELLENT AROUND FABRICS SINCE AN AGENT USED IN MOST WILL
            DAMAGE OR DESTROY WATER REPELLENT FINISHES
        2. Check interior for any leakage after rinse and allow to thoroughly air dry.
        3. Upon completion of each cleaning it may again be necessary to apply 3M Scotch Guard Protector for fabric, to assure
            water repellency if cleaning process has removed it.

TO HELP EXTEND THE LIFE AND APPEARANCE OF YOUR TENT:
        1. DO_ thoroughly clean whenever bird droppings, tree sap or dirt becomes apparent
        2. DO apply Scotch Guard Fabric Protector any time accidental contact with Insect Repellant, Hair Spray or Suntan
            Lotion occurs.
        3. DO NOT fold down unit wet for any extended period of time. If canvas must be stored wet, open unit to thoroughly
            dry as soon as possible.
        4. DO NOT allow the sun to dry moisture (rain or dew) into vinyl. Moisture combined with dust and dirt will result in
            stains which will be almost impossible to remove.
                                   SPECIAL SAFETY PROCEDURES

                           SYSTEMS
    WATER SYSTEM
     Fresh water may be supplied to the sink from one of two sources;
either a water tank or a city water hook-up. Fixtures for both sources are                               City Water Fill
located adjacent to each other on the same side of the camper and are
labeled.
     You should install a pressure reducer in the campground faucet that
will limit the pressure to 60 PSI If the source pressure exceeds that
amount. The city water bypasses the internal water tank, but does fill
the water heater. Open a hot water faucet to help fill the heater tank. In
either case, put only clean drinkable water in the system.
     DEMAND PUMP
     The pressure in the internal tank system comes from the 12V
demand pump. Open the faucet the first time you turn on the demand
pump until the water flows steadily, then close the faucet. When the
system is pressurized, the pump will stay off until you use water.

              ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
       110-VOLTAC
        The power supply cord for the 110V AC electrical system is stored on
  the road side of the trailer behind a round access door. This cord is rated at 30
  amps.
        If 110V appliances or lights are operated outside the camper, an outlet
  with a ground fault interrupter (GFI breaker) must be used to provide
  protection against electrical shock.
       Appliances with motors require a steady flow of voltage to operate
  correctly. Voltage fluctuations can damage these appliances. To protect
  them, obtain and use a plug-in volt meter to monitor the line voltage.
       CIRCUIT OVERLOAD
                                                                                                   Power Cord Storage

       1. Turn off all electrical appliances.
       2. Reset the breaker by turning it momentarily to the "OFF position,
  then back to "ON".
       Determine why the circuit breaker "tripped". The cause could be an
  overloaded circuit, a faulty appliance (or other piece of electrical
  equipment), or defective wiring.


      WARNING: DO NOT use a 15 amp extension cord on
      campers that have a 30 amp power cord, or use a
      cheater plug that would eliminate the grounding circuit
      (third wire) on the power cord. Failure to comply
      could result in electrical shock and/or fire.

                   LP GAS SYSTEM
     LP (Liquid propane) gas is an efficient, inexpensive, portable fuel
that burns readily with intense heat. It is used for cooking, heating,
and refrigeration. The LP gas systems are designed and built to rigid
standards. They are tested before leaving the factory and with proper
care and maintenance they are safe. Except for simple connection                                       Single LP Bottle) and Retaining Straps
tightening, take your unit to the dealer for LP gas problems. The LP
bottle should always be filled and the regulator checked by an
authorized LP supplier. Read the manufacturers' instructions before
using any LP gas appliance.
NOTE: STARCRAFT RV, Inc. is not responsible tor personal injury
  or property damage resulting from improper use or maintenance of
  LP gas appliances or systems.
     LP gas has a distinctive odor (you might note* this as you light the
appliances). If you smell gas, immediately investigate the source. The
gas is heavier than air and settles in low areas. It could cause
suffocation or create a fire hazard. Your authorized LP gas supplier
may be able to supply you with a gas leak detector which will help
eliminate this danger.


      WARNING: DO NOT bring or »tore LP gas container*, gasoline,                                             Doubt* LP Gas Bottle
      or other flammable liquids inside the camper. LP bottles are equipped
      with safety devices which relieve excessive pressure by discharging gas to
      the atmosphere. An improperly used or poorly maintained LP system
      can cause a fire or explosion.


       To operate any LP gas appliance, be sure all appliances are off, then
  open the service valve on the bottle, found on the "A" frame. At first
  some air in the gas line may escape as you open a valve, extinguishing
  your lighter. Likewise when you close the bottle service valve, some gas
  remains in the line unless you light a burner to burn off the excess. Turn
  the burner off when the flame burns out.


      DANGER! ! ! IF YOU SMELL GAS:
      1. Extinguish all open flames, pilot lights, lanterns and smoking
      materials.

                          silicone sealer (available from Starcraft). A similar procedure should be followed for

                          if necessary.

Winch                        To insure trouble-free operation, the winch must be oiled at least once a year, and
                          more often if necessary. A light machine oil should be applied to the pawl
                          mechanism shaft between the pawl and the bushing. After oiling, the roof should be
                          cranked up and down a time or two to help work the oil into the bearing surfaces.
                          The winch can be oiled from underneath the rear of the camping trailer without
                          removing the winch from the frame. If the winch is not oiled regularly, the pawl
                          may eventually seize. This condition is easy to detect, as the clicking sound that
                          accompanies normal operation will be absent. The roof can still be raised, but the
                          inertia brakes will not operate and as soon as the winch handle is released, the
                          handle will backspin and the roof will descend rapidly.
Canvas                       Clean using a soft bristled brush and scrub with warm, soapy water and a mild                Closing camper while canvas is wet.
