Exclamation Safety

Phaedrus
I would give this a little bit of thought.."As far as moving it."
My take"
The safest thing for all concern..including your new A/S, is to contract a wrecker service with a flatbed truck. They only charge by the miles and, they'll get it up on the bed as part of the cost.
This will get it "home" and, then you can work on what needs replacement at your own pace.
Just my take..
May all the A/S angels smile upon you.
ciao

Thumbs up where to start

any suggestions on the first step? I decided to take your advice and bring it home on a flatbed by the way...(no license fees, no worries because I couldn't find that dang stabilizer bar)

Thumbs up First..

Phaedrus
Fantastic news~!~Have a safe move~!
Personally, I believe it the best first move for your A/S..
I understand that, you're planning on staying put with it..??
You should still give some thoughts to making it roadworthy..Even if it's done way down stream..
First thing I'd do when you get it to where you want it..Is to get under some kind of cover. Sure makes working on it easier and, you could solve the issues that, are creature comfort without the pressure of getting sidetracked by leaks, etc.
Creature comfort would include the A/C, refrig working, water system checked out, heating system, electricity checked out for your lights and, water heater for those hot showers..
Somewhere in this process, you'll need to replace the gasket for your door, vents systems and/or reseal the seals on your roof around things like the TV ant, vents for the bathroom, etc.
It's not gonna be easy nor quick..How is the floor in it? You may want to just toss a bug bomb in it for a few days to drive out all un-invited guests..KWIM?
Please try to take as many pictures as you can. I know we'd all love to see how you're coming along with this..
Besides, after it's all done(and it will be oneday) you'll have something to look back on..'With Pride".
Good Luck~!
ciao
