Brand new UTV owner. I've been driving a Polaris Sportsman 500 for a few years. We bought a Coleman Outfitter 400 a week ago today, and still trying to figure it out. Would really like to find a repair manual for it, if anybody can point me in the right direction. Our ATV/UTV are primarily to make life easier for us on our small horse place, but now that we have a SXS, we look forward to exploring some of the smaller back roads together. My husband is the mechanic of the family, and found that a repair manual REALLY helped after we bought the VERY well used Polaris a few years ago.
We have the owner's manual, but the nearest place that might provide warranty work/repairs is a two hour drive from here, best we can figure out, so an actual repair/service manual will be really helpful, especially once the warranty is up.
I am a first time owner of a ATV/SxS. I have owned many many motorcycles (on and off road), boats, PWCs, etc. but never a SxS. Just purchased a 2015 MSU-500 this weekend form the original owner. It has 850 miles (150 hrs), been used each year on the deer lease. Seems to be in very good shape and well taken care of but we will see. I had a few questions I was hoping someone could help with. I want to change all the fluids so recommendations would be helpful for:
1. Engine Oil, any brand or type preference? (reg or syn)
2. Trans/final drive
Besides the air filter any other general maintenance I should do before I haul to the cabin?
Also, the original winch is not working. Any reason to attempt to repair or just replace? The 500 will be light duty, mostly just hauling brush running around the property so no need to invest in a Warn so I was just thinking something from Harbor Freight. Is it possible to replace the winch and still use the original controller or does that become obsolete and you just use what comes with the replacement?
Thanks for input and if there is anything else I should do or know please feel free to chime in. Also, I am well aware of what I have. It is not a Honda or Polaris, it is a Chinese clone and cost a fraction of what a quality brand would have cost. But for what I need and as little as it will be used this fits the bill, I hope.

TLDR (too long didn't read) in blue for quick scanning
Hey all! I'm new to the Side-by-side/UTV world. We own a smallish farm and decided to go with the 2021 Tracker 800LE Crew. We like the seating and the ride is smooth. However as a newbie I have some questions that maybe some of you longtime side-by-side/UTV owners can help with. We're still in the "break-in" period and it seems that after 30 min or less of driving the dash area gets super hot. You can feel the heat waves coming off the floorboard by your feet and my phone sitting in the little hole (where a radio might go) felt like I left it in the hot sun for too long. The glovebox was also way too hot.
So the question is, is this normal, or should I start checking engine coolant and filters? We literal have had it a day. I have read forums and looked up info and can't find anyone mentioning this issue. I just don't want to burn the thing up before we've even put it through it's paces ya know!
Thanks for any help!
