RV junkyards/sources for used parts

Does anyone know of places that specialize in used RV parts? I've got a power distribution module (#A06-84731-005) that I'd like to replace but Freightliner wants about $970 for a new one (with shipping). I found a website (FindItParts) where I can shave about $180 off of that, but the part itself should really run less than $200. It'd be nice if there was a giant RV junkyard somewhere that you could order from. Anyone run into a place like that?

Thanks for the responses so far. I came across this site that looks quite promising. They are based in Missouri and also have an eBay store but likely only list the parts most in demand on there. I sent them a request for my part and will hopefully get what I need: https://colawrvsalvage.com/

I sent requests to both Colaw and Arizona RV Salvage. Colaw said they didn't have the part. Arizona RV never responded back.

I found what I needed on eBay for $115.46 (including tax). The seller is www.trucklinerparts.com out of Decatur, IN and it looks like they sell new but slightly damaged units that were intended to be installed in motor homes/trucks. I ordered on 9/26 and received it yesterday, 9/30. The damage on the one I got was just a broken tab that was intended to secure the primary incoming 12V power cable, likely to prevent it from working loose under road vibrations. A few cable ties can easily remedy that defect. Shipping was FAST, so I highly recommend the place. The module is now installed and works fine! Needless to say I'm happy to have saved $800+!

Thanks for the recommendations!

Just a quick point about buying used RV parts. I needed a rear compartment door cover on my 2001 Horizon, I called Visonerv they had the part. they wanted 1200 plus shipping for it. sight unseen.

For the heck of it, i called Winnebago, and they were still making that door to order, I ordered it, it took about 6 weeks to get it but the cost delivered was 1k.

My point before you look for used, make sure its out of production, as those used parts cost more than new.

When I have needed to source parts...I have found that Visone RV is the HIGHEST price of all...including the dealer in some cases.

Greed sux.
