RV Parts?

ok, where do you get your rv parts from? so far i havent needed much but what i have ive gotten of the internet from various sources. took a four day camping trip with a few problems, first about 100 miles from home started smelling something burning, pulled over to find left rear brake dragging. my workhorse is a p32, not one thats supposed to have brake problems. scratched my head for a few minutes, climbed under mh, loosened caliper bleeder to see if that would free it, no, then lightly taped it with a hammer, lol, decided to try and limp it somewhere to try and work on it since i was in the middle of nowhere and caliper never drug again on my 800 mile trip. anyway back to my question. my bathroom vent fan blade completely desentigrated. looked online and found the part, was around 9 bucks, shipping was 12 bucks. so i decided to go to a small local rv dealer. says they normally have it in stock but out, gonna have some more in about a week. went to another small rv dealer, same exact answer. week goes by and call dealer, we havent ordered it yet, i ask why. we have to wait till we get a big enough order or you have to pay shipping, check back next week. is this what we have to do? i guess if you need something you just need to pay shipping....

I always try the normal big-box store, then auto-parts stores, and then specialty stores and there are some on line RV used parts "boneyard" type businesses. I just don't waste time with quote RV-suppliers who say one thing and do something else. On line rvupgrades. etc is a good source also.
