My wife and I, recently purchased a used 2008 Super Nova 6372 in May/2021.

We have been camping / traveling together for 19 years, starting with a Coleman pop-up. As we moved through life our recreational needs have changed over the years. We then aquired an 18' Prowler, then moved to a 27' Coachman, then a 38' Forest River.... currently the Super Nova, our first (hopefully, only) motorhome.

Looking forward to drawing upon the vast wealth of experience reading all the questions and suggestions. As you seasoned veterans know, it's not if you need to make a repair, but when you will need to make a repair. It's just part of the joys of ownership and the lifestyle.

Of course, being a 2008, it came with a few issues. Can anyone here guide me in the right direction on securing some maintenance / repair manuals for the chassis? If they have anything available for the living area, that would be a huge plus, but don't hold out for much hope there, never know tho.

Thanks in advance,
Happy Trails.
Mike

We have a 2008 supernova. Other than the weird design of some stuff ( heater bypass valve under a bedroom drawer that you can only access with the slide extended...) It's been a reliable unit. No manual came with ours, and I've been able to get the model number and serial no. off each appliance or component and download what I needed off the web. A lot of wire chasing has me convinced that each one was wired differently and with no actual design. My converter/ charger was in a dead space behind the undersink cabinet. Only accessible after emptying the cabinet and partially dismantling it. I've relocated that, the house batteries, etc. The leveling system had been replaced and an air suspension put in on the rear by a previous owner. If you have the international engine, it requires some fixes to the EGR system and frequent oil changes to keep the injectors working well. It's a good engine with some extra care. Good luck!
