Plumbing help for a '79 Excella 500

I am the third owner of my 1979 31' Excella 500 rear bath trailer. The previous owner let the pipes freeze, and as a result of a repair attemptwhich left many pipe pieces missing from the " cluster " of water pipes accessed through the rear trunk on the outside. I have tried " engineering " it using flexible clear vinyl tubing. My result so far is underwhelming, at best. I do have cold/hot water to the bathroom sink, the toilet is ok, but, further down the line /s I have barely any water to the shower and only drops come out of the galley sink! This is after installing a new water pump( same stock model, etc. ).
I found the owners manual and the detailed service manual to be of no help, because there just were'nt enough detailed pictures or diagrams for me to figure out what I had to do. Can anyone help me with this? Pictures are worth a thousand words!

Now, my other problem is the electrical......

some pictures of the same area in my '79 sovereign (31ft, rear bath). Maybe they'll help?
