You can get a lot of parts at Auto parts stores and online. They don't have to be purchased from an RV dealer.

Figure out what engine you have and it will use the same parts, usually, that it uses on the manufacturers other vehicles.

As far as resealing check every year or so. Or if it's leaking, fix it.

Hard to say what the guy had on the roof. People carry some strange things around.

Welcome to the forum.

Hi and welcome. If you post pictures of the missing part on top, one of these guys will be able to identify it for you, more than likely. I looked at a motorhome like yours and the one I saw had a Ford 460 gas engine. Doesn't mean yours does, but it's a start. And like has already been said, for the engine components, check your local Auto Parts Store for most of what you're missing. As for the coach itself, a lot of manufacturers used the same parts builders for things like inside light covers, toilets, stoves, refrig, etc. etc. Good luck and get some pics up of that beauty!

My bet is you have a P32 Chevrolet chassis with a 454 engine. Do you still have an air conditioner on top? The only other thing might have been a solar panel. You have a pretty nice motorhome. I would like to see some pictures. Does it look like this?

I would bet you had a solar panel and they took it off. If you don't do much boondocking, you won't miss it. No, you don't have to do anything special to plug into 110. The coach will do whatever it needs to do automatically. The 110 will power your wall outlets and air conditioner(s) and anything that runs on 110vt. There is a converter somewhere in your coach that will convert the 110 to 12 volts for the 12 volt items, like your lights. You don't have to do anything for that to happen.
Now, to run off the generator is another situation entirely and it depends on how your motorhome was configured. On mine, I have to plug the 110 line into a receptacle from the generator for it to work. Some RV's switch over automatically. I have no idea what your configuration is.

Look under the hood, should be a black plastic box with cover.
Sometimes if fuse looked good, still replaced with new one and
lights worked. Good luck !
Also check your light bulbs.
