I recently purchased a Fender Squire Acoustic knowing it had some issues. First it hasn't been setup apparently: Also, the back of the body is cracked:

I think I need to do something about the splitting of the body before I try messing with the truss rod. What can I do to keep the body together?

that looks like a neck joint separation. maybe the previous owner torqued the heck out of the truss rod already and caused that. it could happen from extreme temperature abuse, or its a poorly made guitar.
in any case have it looked at. it isn't an awful expensive repair.
have the repair person look at the set up. he should be able to determine the state of the truss rod.
