We have left the interior original, so it looks almost just like yours.
Please post some pictures of the new paint when you get it home.

WOW …it looks mint

I bought a 73 Argosy 20' in original working condition. The fridge worked great…but was leaking ammonia gas. I'd keep an eye on it.

I was advised that the original water heater was an accident waiting to happen.

Then the furnace died, on a freezing Fourth of July night. ( true story )

Close call!

I went to turn on the roof vent fan and it did not work. I left the vent open a few nights ago and rain came in through the vent and must have got the motor wet. I flicked the switch a couple times and still nothing so I figured it had died because I left the vent open. I came back a while later to pull the motor out and it was smoking! I had left the switch to the on position. It was so hot the fan melted on the shaft. I turned it off and had to let it cool down for a while before I could take it out of the vent. I am sick to think I could have burned the camper up. A new motor and fan blade are on the way from Inland Marine so all will be fixed soon. SCARY!.

You could have maybe salvaged the old fan at first. Mine would not turn either so I took off the screen and turned the blades by hand and off she went. A dose of WD40 and it works like a charm. Since it toasted you will need a new fan now. I suggest replacing the switch as well with a DPDT center off switch so that the fan can be reversed to blow air into the coach.

I had figured on doing that put did not know the correct name for the switch I needed to make it work. Thanks for the info.

They come with 6 contacts on the back, (: : like this. Connect power and ground to the middle contacts. Cross connect the outside contacts, i.e. right front to left rear, left front to right rear. Connect the power and ground wires from the fan to one end only, i.e. right front and right rear. The switch will connect straight in one direction and reverse in the other.

Exclamation Motor will not run backwards

Disregard my last 2 posts. The motor is not reversible. I bought the switch and installed it and much to my chagrin, reversing the polarity also reverses the polarity of the field coil magnets and the fan still goes the same direction.
