Smith Electric

I recently bought at auction a 2012 Smith Electric D75 ex FedEx step van. I am desperately looking for an owner’s/shop manual for it. None seems to exist! It would also be great to find someone close enough to come by and check it out. I live in Anaheim, CA. I have not been able to even start It as of yet, but I used the charger cable from my 2013 RAV4 EV and it seems to have charged up. Can anyone out there help me?

lol. I was looking at those.

There's good reason why these are farmed out to suckers at auctions...can't get parts, unless you buy two or three or four (if there's a common failure that kills them...).

Was too rich for me - would need to gut and replace the controls. I guess it actually charging is a bonus....I would have expected the batteries were cycled to death, daily, over 8 years.

This would all be pretty straight forward if people located manuals for current vehicles and archived them here, wouldn't it?
