Wow proud ol gal isn't she..Big concern for myself would be the running
gear starting with tires,they are not easy to change so about the last thing
you want to go bad. I would invest in towing insurance, from Good Sam or???
Bottom line, check tire dates..over 6 years..they should go.
Brakes Ok??
If you want the water to work, disconnect inlet to hotwater tank and plug it, see if everything else is OK.
Good luck, make a nice project

Thanks Jim.. Is the water heater accessible from the inside on this model or outside via a flip-door like many trailers? I think it's probably the door just ahead of the drivers-side rear axle -- correct?

The water heater is an Atwood/Bowen 6 gallon. You have to undo the water lines inside the coach and the floor mounting screws, the LP line from outside, unscrew the 2 dozen or so screws holding it to the outside skin, and wiggle it out from the outside.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Thanks.. I guess for the short term to diagnose whether further issues exist in the plumbing of the rig, I could just disconnect & cap the lines inside as you indicate and see if further leakage ensues..
