Find the make and model of your appliances and download the manuals. You should be able to read the manual and learn how to use them. As far as dumping , many campgrounds will allow you to dump for a fee, better yet, spend your last night somewhere that has sewer hookups so you can dump your tanks before you leave. You can also check out www.sanidumps.com for locations.

Hello hello this is my first post it's nice to meet you. My husband and I recently became the joyful owners of a lightly-used 87 Chevy Southwind by Fleetwood. We live in Los Angeles and this RV is going to be our home for the foreseeable future. We love it but the only problem is at this time we have no idea how to run our appliances. Mainly the refrigerator stove and shower water heater. We also have absolutely no clue where we can go to fill up or dump are water and sewage in the Los Angeles area. Other places we've lived there were clear rest stops along the highway one could easily go to but in the middle of this Concrete Jungle I'm not sure where Urban campers take care of business. If we could even find one helpful person who is knowledgeable about the workings of RVs willing to help us we would be extremely grateful. Thanks for your time guys have an awesome night bye bye for now

Are we to understand that you're just living along the road somewhere and did see a lot of that, in LA.
I ask, because if in a campground and they're on many on the CA coast alone, then one of your neighbors or the campground host should be happy to help you out, with the workings of your unit.
After that, tech questions of all sorts can be answered here, as well as to the probable causes of something that isn't working right.
We once owned an 87 Chevy Pace Arrow that would be close to what you have.
They have front air bags, if original, that should be replaced with after market coil springs and eliminating the need for the bags.
The fridge should have settings at the bottom when opening the door for gas or 120vac elect.
Should be a sw. on the hall wall for starting the propane water heater and whereas it will fire up or try, with the sw. light and sound to indicate when it's on. Ours had an aftermarket elect. heater in the drain plug hole, so had two sources for hot water.
Whatever the case with your accomadations, welcome aboard.
