I just bought a 1978 Fleetwood Prowler 5th wheel. There is a great deal of work that is needed. I have been trying to locate any information like schematics, tanks sizes, and propane systems. I contacted every company I could think of. If anyone has information on the camper, please let me know. I will post pictures and have questions and maybe even a couple of answers.

Forgot to mention,, on fresh water tanks thru the 70's into the 80's,,, example, a 30 gallon tank held approx, 23.5 gallons of fresh water.  ( for a tank that holds under 25 gals, they still listed it as a 30 gal.)

On average that size was set up with a 30 gallon fresh water tank, 15 gallon black tank and 15  gallon grey.

Ive come across a couple with only a 12 gal, black. and grey tank set up.

OOPS I forgot she is a 1978 prowler

Hello Lakota,

She is a Fleetwood Prowler 28 feet 5th wheel. I know I have to rebuild the entry door, fix some rot walls. I do want to change out the 12v lights. I really need to know what size my tanks are. I received no information, books, or owner's manual. I would appreciate any information you can share.

Thank you for replying
