First RV Purchase - Need Advice - 2002 Jamboree 31W

Just bought an RV tonight. It has 37500 miles, super slide, HWH leveling system, banks power pack, new tires, satellite, 4k generator, and some type of transmission fluid transfer system that circulates the tow vehicles transmission fluid? It has a new awning over the slide, and the 20' awning looks like it will last a little longer (maybe next year I will replace it). Its not perfect, but it is in pretty good shape. They put a new liner on the roof with some type of sealant on it a while back. There are some cracks around the very rear on the roof, and two of the roof vents as well as around the toilet exhaust. The worst part of the RV is right in front of the sink the floor is a little soft. It has basement storage, so I think I will build a box in the basement storage to hold up the floor better. That is what I need the help with - how common is this and what is the permanent fix? I assume ripping up the floor and replacing the wood. I am pretty handy, not sure this is a project I would try unless someone has some good info on this. I think I got a good deal at $22500. Yes, no? Where is the best place to get insurance? Is there a better insurance policy than another? I have agreed upon terms in my boat insurance, not sure insurance places will do that for an RV. I have AAA for my car/truck, should I go with them for emergency services or is there someone better that I should look at? More questions - how should I polish the outside of the RV? It isn't fading really bad and the graphics only have a couple of cracks at most. I would like to get it looking nice again. I was thinking of gel coat polisher of some type with a low speed hand held buffer.

Welcome! Lots of great questions. A couple suggestions on how to best get the info you are seeking.

Use the search feature as you will find lots of coverage of most of your questions already in place. After a bit of research then post any remaining specific questions - one per thread, as this will get all answered and maintain responder focus.

Use Dicor caulking for cracks and they make a rubber
roof sealer that is really good. Heng's sealer use over
caulking. It will seal up pin hole cracks and ones you
don't see. Be sure to wash area clean with soap/water
before applying.Work on cracks first because they will
prevent later major damage if not repaired.
