Exclamation Help needed to save 99 Mountain Aire Spartan MM-2242

Hi everyone.
I am new on this forum. I just bought a fixer upper(water damage) 99 mountain aire 4081 on spartan MM-2242 it has the 330 cummins so I can travel around with my little family. In the meantime of waiting for paperwork to be done and plan the remodel some folks vandalized my rv. They took some metal parts off of it like muffler, intake pipes etc, batteries, the main problem is that they emptied the compartment next to the batterie's. All I know about it is that there was a main switch and fuses. They cut wires out here and there. I called spartan and newmar but they don't have any wiring book for this chassis they say. the guy there had the part number for that "rear pdc assembly" and he is trying to find out availability and price. Still waiting.
So I was thinking maybe I could find someone here who has the same model or chassis and would help me find out what parts am i missing from the rv. I know its going to be a headache but I have to try it. I live in Jacksonville Florida. Maybe someone close to me? I am pretty handy, i can fix things. (Otherwise I wouldn't want to try to save this rv) But i really need help with this wiring.
Hopefully I'll find some help here. Thanks
Here is what's left

Welcome to iRV2!
That sucks what the vandals did, sure doesn't help your project one bit.
I'm sure with all of the knowledgeable folks here, you'll get some guidance.
One member comes to mind....he goes by "DavL". He rebuilt and refurbished a burnt-out ('03 I think) Mountain Aire. Maybe he'll stop by here and be of some help.
Best luck, I'll be following along.

Check online RV salvage yards. They post what the have in their yards. You might be plesently surprised. Found a few things for my 1999 Dutchstar. Many oarts are interchangeable. Good luck. Im down in Melbourne fl. Keep in touch.

Welcome to the forum, Atee
Here is a link that will answer many questions for you and RV Salvage yards would be one of them.
Looks like you had a inverter/converter removed in that compartment.
If you go into QT's # 3 to end of first page you will find SPK64's MOD & REPAIR Section that will have a review and rebuild of items in your coach.
The first link I gave you will find all the info you need for your coach and instructions in finding more.
Enjoy the forums and safe travels.

Ouch,,, that stinks...
So, I assume there wasn't any insurance on the rig when it was vandalized?
Just looking at your pics, the layout is different than my 2002.
I would get with Newmar to get a wiring diagram for sure, or from another owner.
I have a 2005 diagram that I glean from for my 2002. Most is similar especially their color coding.
I think a lot of expensive parts are missing :(
You can get all from ColawRV. Make a big order and then negotiate the price for all.

Me too. I hope the owner was insured but based on his comment about "while waiting on paperwork..." hints that such is not the case.


Don't want to be a pessimist but he's missing probably $5k-$10k worth of stuff (by the time it's replaced).

No I did not have insurance yet.
I contacted few yards, sent them pictures. I am waiting for response. I hope they can find everything.
