The owners manual for my B190 was chock full of incorrect information. The most egregious was the claim that there was only one combined waste tank and how many campers were being built this way and it was the way of the future, and I should ignore the reading for holding tank #2. The only problem was that there were in fact separate gray and black waste tanks.
While that always amused me, it was also annoying because I had no idea how large either one of them was. The spec given in the manual was for the nonexistent combined tank.
The B190 didn't have a wiring diagram with it, either. I went through and audited every circuit to figure out what was on every fuse, but that's not quite the same as a true wiring diagram. Our trailer, on the other hand, has wiring schematics for every trailer Airstream made that year. I'm not sure if they all come with them, or if we have them because of the extensive solar/inverter setup someone installed.
