Another thing I like about the tablet or computer ... I can zoom.

They keep printing smaller and smaller!

Well, I have been discussing this with my husband, this gets into tender territory. He is a computer geek IT person and doesn't trust computers
He believes in having the paper books. We have iPads and so I am going to download all this in iBooks for myself. He is anti-computer/Google if you have to, I am an Apple person.
I drive him crazy with my unsafe computer habits. We have a password manager program and virtual private network program. He doesn't work in computer security but works next to them and they don't have Facebook or bank online and their computer cameras are all taped over.

I put everything that came with the TT in a 3-ring binder. I've since added hard copies of additional manuals that I've downloaded from the internet that didn't come with the TT. For example, I have copies of Dometic fridge troubleshooting guides, Schwintek slide out troubleshooting guides, Dometic fridge parts list,etc.

There are times when having something in hard copy that you can see "all at once" beats the heck out of looking at one page, or part of a page, on some tablet or laptop. I can also write notes on the hard copies.

You can write notes on a tablet too... just don't wipe the screen.

Actually the PDF reader program I use lets me highlight and put notes on them.

Did you have to go to a lot of different websites to get your manuals?

Several, yes. Depends on how many equipment brands, etc. that you have. If there's something in your FR coach (washer, dryer, microwave, etc.) that's like mine, I'd be glad to email you the manuals I have. Just PM me with an email address.
