Question Books for Newbies

I love these forums, but I'm getting overwhelmed. Can anyone suggest books that helped them get grounded on the basics of maintenance and operation.

This book came with our 2016 FC. Very useful.

Since everything but the aluminum skin is a kit of parts seen in every other RV under the sun, a book like this would probably be all you really need:

+1 on this book, bought it while we were waiting for our AS to be delivered. Read it a few times and now keep it in the AS while traveling.
