Disappointing in Contrast to Trailer Life’s Manual, But Still Useful,April 2, 2008

Woodall Publishing Corp

My wife inherited a 1988 Winnebago (31 foot, no slide-outs) and we’ve decided to bring it up to speed for beach trips. This is one of two books I have bought to get started, it is the lesser of the two but still useful.

RV Repair and Maintenance Manual: Updated and Expanded (RV Repair and Maintenance Manual) is absolutely one the best car maintenance books I have ever had the pleasure of using (I also have a 1964 MGB and related maintenance books). This other book is brilliantly organized, crystal-clear, and I especially appreciate the full-page trouble-shooting guide with symptoms and fixes in two columns.

If you want only one book, buy the other book. I am not unhappy with this Owner’s Handbook, I use it for overview reading, but it is not anywhere near as good as the Trailer Life book in terms of detail and trouble-shooting.
