water and waste systems

Just bought a '70 safari land yacht. We don't have a clue about how the water and waste systems work. Are there any manuals out there we can obtain?

I copied this information from a previous thread about owner's manuals. Hope it helps.

Q: I need an owners and service manual for my Airstream. Where can I get one?
The first owners manuals were published in 1964. Prior to that, the owner received a brown envelope containing parts lists and other helpful information on the accessories in his trailer. A service manual with instructions for performing service operations did not exist until 1972.
You can get photocopies of owners manual (1964+) and service manuals (1972-1986) from:

Helen Davis Secretarial Services
PO Box 484 Sidney, OH 45365


Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively. After 1986 the Owners Manuals included available service information

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new Airstream. From your question I wonder if you have a mechanical problem with the water and waste systems or do you just need someone to show you how to fill the tank, turn on the pump and then dump the mess when you are finished? There are plenty of people here ready to help you with both ends of the question.
