A couple of questions

I have inherited my in law's 87 345 Classic MH and I have some questions.




What are the wall ribs made of? Aluminum, steel or wood?


Why are there pit holes in the aluminum that look like rust?


Where can I find a spare fiberglass tire cover, or should I just fabricate one?

It was not latched and got lost along the highway.


Thanks

Congrats on your inheritance of 1987 345, now the fun can begin.

ribs-aluminum
pit holes-corrosion
tire cover- NLA tough item to find. May want to get creative


You may want to consider consolidating all your question into your own thread, like many of us have done. You can called it something like ie. Airbusses Airbus

I had a fellow working on the 345 and it turned out that he was a complete IDIOT! He screwed up the dash wiring to the gauges and radio. Is there such a thing as a schematic for the wiring on an 86 345?


Thanks in advance.

Another reason why Peter's advice to start one thread and put all your questions in it, I responded to your other thread on the dash wiring.

Good luck with your new 345
