Operators manual

For those who have a bus with lots of systems and changes to the bus chassis, have you written an owner/operator manual?
It occurs to me that I'm not getting any younger and, if something were to happen to me, no one would have a clue about how to operate and locate things. One of my projects this winter is to write a detailed manual with instructions, wiring diagrams and locations of components
It is in pdf form and also will contain all of the manuals/instructions for the various components.

I do know that Jack (aka: Ol' Trunt) is putting one together for his wonderful 1935 custom rig and I am trying to do the same for mine. I think every build would benefit from such even if just a simple handbook.

That's a great idea! We built this bus, so we know just about every detail of our build.....but it would be a good idea to write it all down anyway. We've got all of our appliance/utilities manuals and the bus operating manuals in physical form. Probably be a good idea to put it all in one place in form of a PDF....maybe add various filter numbers and whatnot too.

And...if you ever decide to sell your bus...having an 'Owners/Operators Manual" should prove to be worth its' weight in...well...at least some paper money.
