Damon Magnum parts

I recently acquired a 1998 Magnum travel trailer and need some parts. Any thoughts to the best and cheapest place to acquire them would be appreciated. Specifically I need electrical, plumbing and interior walls. The camper has two leaks also, so outside trim is also a need. Yes, it's a lot , but the price was right. I got it for the price of four new tires. I am brand new to the camper scene, so any suggestions are welcome!

Electrical and plumbing .

Electrical is standard house wiring for the 120 volt, you can get those most anywhere (Lowes, home Depot, Joe's hardware). and even plumbing parts the faucets and fixtures may be found at the bigger Hardware sources, pipes are usually PEX which Home Depot has a version of (likely Lowes too) but other options may be usable.

That leaves walls,, Plywood. and paneling work well there,,, On the aobve list change "joe's hardware" to Peat's Plywood, or Larry's Lumberyeard" (All generic names by the way intended to represent the name of your local Hardware or lumber/panel store).

Windows may be the only tricky stuff, Windows and doors are typically RV, not Homeowner. products.. And there you need a bigger RV store, salvage yard, parts store or Camping World.

Home is where I park it!

Congrats on the TT, you just became an electrician, plumber, carpenter. Think outside the box. The parts don't have to be factory original, or even TT parts. Inside walls are just 1/8 ply skins with inside bracing. You're not building a cabin. Most electrical is 12V auto, very little 120V. just make sure you know the difference. Make lists, draw plans, sit in it and think. Have fun!

For roof coating, I recommend DIY EPDM roof coating.
