Where are you located? I am going to recommend this as a great primer for anyone getting into RV'ing.
This is in Kelowna, British Columbia at Okanagan College (they have an RV Certification program there) and it is 3 days worth of almost everything the starter might find handy. Topics change a little bit every year but here is a sampling of some of the topics
Electrical problem solving
Holding Tanks, maintenance
Working from your RV
Hotwater Tanks, How they work/maintenance.
And that is just a partial list. You can pick and choose what you want and you Boondock in the college parking lot for the 3 or 4 days. All classes are either taught by instructors or some cases fulltimers or company reps eg. (Onan), The cost including barbecues and entertainment in the evenings.... a whole $190.00 Canadian per person.
This year is June 22 -25th.
I can't overstate the value for the money. If you are at all close, this would be an excellent place to start.
It is called the RV Owners Lifestyle Seminars. This is the weblink
