How to find blueprints for 2024 25RDSWE

Happy Sunday! ☀️

Does anyone know where I can find the build plans or blueprints for a 2024 Cougar Half Ton 25RDSWE?

It was easy to find for our Lance 850 TC, but I’m not having any luck with our Keystone.


Thanks for reading!

As far as I know you wont find them anywhere. What specific information are you looking for?

Hi Chuckster!

I have some wall storage items I want to install and I don’t want to hit anything. I use command strips 95% of the time, but I have a few things that need to be screwed in.

I wish they made that stuff available! I’d also like to know how deep my converter is under my oven. LOL. We are changing it out because the one we have WF 9855 AD…..doesn’t auto detect our lithium batteries ☹️.

Thank you for your quick reply! 👍🏼❤️

Stand alone converters are often times within 3 feet of the breaker panel, Ive seen them plugged into anoutlet on the rear of the panel and I have seen them plugged into an outlet somewhere else.

The converter in a 25RDS is located behind the distribution panel and alongside the furnace. The converter is floor mounter with 4 screws.

I wouldn't drill any holes anywhere beneath the oven, lots of wiring shoved into that little space!

Converter only reachable thru the hole for the distribution panel. Not accessible by removing the stove.

Before you change out your WF-9855-AD converter (AD stands for Auto Detect), is it really malfunctioning, and if so why not let warranty handle it?

The reason I ask if it is really malfunctioning, is because it will not auto detect battery type unless you connect it to a discharged battery first. So if you had lead acid batteries and swapped in a set of fully charged lithium batteries, it will not detect the fully charged lithium batteries. In some rare cases, the converter firmware needs an update. Green LED means it is sensing and charging on a lead-acid profile and a blue LED is lithium.

If you have not done so, I might suggest disconnecting solar and shore power and bringing the lithium batteries to a low state of charge, then re-engage shore power and let the converter auto-detect and charge the batteries.

As for screwing things to walls, a good quality stud finder is suggested. However, keep in mind that exterior walls are framed with aluminum studs so don’t use just any old screw and watch the length if you do choose to attach anything to an exterior wall

We found it! It was really close to the panel. I was worried we would have to take out the oven to access it. Good news is I think the converter finally auto detected our lithium batteries! YAY! Saw the blue light. 👍🏼👏🏼

Thanks again for your help!

Hi Bulldog!

It finally auto detected! YAY!! It is right behind our panel. The blue light is on!! 🙏🏼. I’m so glad. One less thing to deal with.

Question: Our batteries are at 13.8 when fully charged. Does the voltage only go up to 14.4 during bulk charge? I saw it was at 14.6 for awhile, but came back down. Maybe once it went into float charge?

Thanks for you time and help!
Debbie

Hi GlasNav!

Exactly where you said! 👍🏼👏🏼👊🏼. Mess of wires, sawdust and hunks of whatever. 🤣🤪. Got it all cleaned up and saw the blue light indicating lithium charge profile! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. One less thing to deal with. So happy!

Thanks so much for taking the time!

not necessarily so…you could move to the Goshen Indiana area for a year and befriend the locals ….study some of the local traditions and perhaps convert to the Amish lifestyle…purchase a farm and some animals….get someone to recommend you for a job on the assembly line at one of the local rv manufacturers…after you prove yourself as a dedicated worker you could perhaps get promoted from insulation installer to the coveted and respected electrical systems installer and perhaps get your hands on a set of blueprints…..after you finish out your shift and get paid. ( not sure if you would have to wait for weekly pay or daily pay?? ) but either way
put you two weeks notice in and go back to the farm and finish feeding the cows and other animals and put the farm up for sale and back to your regular life….easy peasy

Good to see you out and in public. The Work Release program at your institution seems to be helpful for rehabilitating certain... well behaviors.

Why not just break in and steal it? Just look for a piece of butchers paper with crayon lines drawn on it. The electrical drawings are most likely pencil marks on a peice of cardboard with hex signs drawn in crayon on it to ward against the evil of the "devil's lightning".

Sounds like you have some friends down in Matthews, that's how they would handle it!

But they still wouldn't be the blueprints for your particular rig, nor any rig made beyond that Friday.
