The book offer great review of basic and generic RV systems. Now I have a much better understanding of propane, electrical, and water system, etc. It offers all the basic information to do your repairs. Provided a minimal general mechanic knowledge the book does the job. The only shadow is the number of sketch and plans is a bit low and information is not specific to any RV model. It is a general book, so I do not think we should expect such detail for each vehicule model. It does not offer step by step description of repairs, so you have to know a bit. On the other hand I will keep the book in my RV for all repair. This is a recommended book for every RV owner book. It could be quite useful to fully understand what the RV repairman had done/is doing/will do to your vehicule.

I was surprised. Great illustrations, in-depth enough to satisfy my curiosity, but not to the engineering level. If you have an I.Q. over 100, skip the Idiots guide and just buy this book for it covers the basics in one chapter and the real "guts" in the other chapter. Everything is covered from solar power to rubber roofs to checklists and notes areas. It's a book you work with and in as well as from. Wiring diagrams, suggested manufacturers, and even mathmatical formulas will help the novice gain a solid understanding of the RV as a whole.

Similar to, but not as in-depth, as Trailer Life's "RV Repair and Maintenance Manual (RV Repair & Maintenance Manual)".
That stated, you might not need to have the amount of depth either, which is why I rated it

Overwritten, confusing, and sloppily edited. Full of misspellings, omitted or duplicated words. RV owners are often confronted with an incomplete, generic owner's manual, which contradicts the separate component manuals to which it refers the owner. I was hoping this book would serve as a quick-start introduction to understanding and maintaining my diesel pusher motorhome, and make it easier to wade through these manuals. No such luck. Yes, the information is there, but the presentation is so amateurish that the book loses credibility. If you don't believe me, read the first sentence of the chapter on RV electrical systems. It's rare that an author can be redundant and contradictory at the same time, but Mr. Bunzer achieved it. I received this book as a gift, and it's still annoying.

This I purchased as a Christmas gift, for one of my brothers, who had just picked up on an older model Winnebago, as his new residence. He was very, very thankful, and said it was highly, greatly informative.

This is a great reference book that gets into the nitty gritty of how different systems in an RV work. It is not a novel or even a little bit entertaining - nor should it be - just the facts!

It's a good book for the person that knows something about RVing, but it doesn't cover the material I was hoping for. I would still RECOMMEND this if you're getting started in RVing.
