Volvo B10M Mk I Operator’s Manual

About this document

This document has been assembled for use with our Volgren TwinDeck coach which is constructed upon a Volvo B10M Mark I chassis. This operator's manual has been divided into four sections and this one contains the Table of Contents and introductory information. The operation, maintenance and specifications sections are contained in the other linked documents. This information maybe of interest to other B10M Mk I motorhome owners.

I did not have access to an English language version of the Operator's Manual. This is not a reproduction of the original English language Volvo B10M Mk I Operator's Manual. It is a synthesis of the following Volvo publications:

  1. B10M Mark I Operator's Manual, French edition.
  2. B10M Mark II Operator's Manual, TP 9029/1 English 4500. 11.85.
  3. Volvo B58 Operator's Manual, TP 2003/1 English 2500. 2.80
  4. Volvo Service Bulletin 3-37-18, Wiring diagram for B10M from Chassis No. 503, May 1980

It does not include any official Volgren coachwork information.
