I was actually daydreaming earlier today about a "Wiki" style effort by you, and Lew and several other of the obviously knowledgable and generous contributors to this forum.

I'm sure Airstream would have trouble coming up with a compensation plan. I wonder if there would be a payment-in-kind opportunity (e.g. discount on accessories, service (LOL! funny) ) or something?

After just several months of ownership, I think I can imagine how the manuals get written. One part-time employee (or full-time who devotes a % of his/her overall job to it); starts with the .pdf of last year's manual; routes it around various departments and asks for changes; which takes a month or two; and then some committee approves the final version, which as we all know has lots of inaccuracies and missing info.
