Looks like a good find? Did you check the rear end for water intrusion and floor rot? I ended up replacing the last 4 feet of floor in the rear.

Also where are your batteries located? Mine are in the front.

Rear end looks good - very minimal rot from drips coming from the vistas... Batteries are right behind the door- considering building a battery box for the front- but that is a low priority at the moment.

I would remove that trim around the back and make sure that caulk seal back there is good. It is not a matter of if that seal will leak but when. It is one of those ounce of prevention things.

Anyone know what the second pump is for? My water pump is mounted under the converter to the left of the pic and then there is another pump by the tank to the right.

Used a plastic weld to fill the holes in the back end cap

Maybe if you remove it and lubricate it it will work again. My rear bath has the fan in the ceiling but it barely would run due to lack of use and age. I was able to lube it and clean it. Replacement fans are available.

Will do - have a few other electrical spots to track down- maybe this one has a disconnected wire like one of my lights has... Thank you.
