Trailer Life's RV Repair and Maintenance Manual:Updated and Expanded by Bob Livingston is absolutely the best troubleshooting guide for anything that is in any type of camper. From air conditioners to Oil Analysis, if covers it all in great detail. It is available from Amazon.com for $23.07 but I found it on the shelf at Barnes and Nobel in their Transportation section. I already used it to fix my Genset and water pump.

I second Quietwater's RV book repair review. Trailer Life's RV Repair and Maintenance Manual:Updated and Expanded is a great book describing general RV systems.
But, your inital idea of carring your trailer's owner's manual and all the other appliance manuals with you, gives you a wealth of information and research web sites for your spacific needs and systems. And it is free.
Unless you enjoy a little light reading about RV electrical, heating and plumbing systems, why spend the money unless you have a problem your owner's manuals and web sites do not address.
I have to admitt: I bought Trailer Life's RV Repair and Maintenance Manual:Updated and Expanded even though I did not need it. It was interesting and I kept it as a resource. HA
Thanks for all the info, everyone!
Both books look worthwhile.
Though I did read the Safari's manual, I did not really go over any of the other appliance manuals that came with the paperwork, so thanks for the tip, KeithC!
