Good day all.

This forum has already helped me with a possible fix to my Onan 4500 generator with an open ground fault issue I currently having with my Bulldog surge protector.

I am going to give it a try today.

I am currently in the midst of doing a complete remodel of a 2003 Fleetwood Pride 36 5L. I have completely tore everything out and down to the raw walls and floor. I have even had to remove the fresh water tank, black tank and all of the plumbing. One problem I am have is getting replacement parts for an RV that Fleetwood stopped making in 2007. Fleetwood seems to have zero interest in helping with parts so far as they only make coaches now. So I may be reaching out for ideas on here.

I have upgraded the power from a 30 amp service to a 50 amp service. Installed a solar system, lithium batteries, Victron energy components, replaced some old wiring as well as added some new wiring. I will have 2 panels, one is the old 30 amp panel being powered by a 3000W Renogy inverter and the other is the new 50 amp panel being powered by a 3000VA Victron Multi Plus II Inverter/Charger.

I had a slide out motor that had stripped gears on it. Of course the motor was discontinued so I had to find a new motor that was comparable. The living room slide had a pin sized hole in it that had rotted out half of the roof and part of the rear portion of the slide plus a leak on the window of the front portion of the slide. I have replaced the roof and the walls, redone the electrical and installed all new framing and panelling.

That is where I am at so far.

Any feed back or suggestions would be welcome. More heads are better than one.

Thank you in advance.

You're already further along in your project that most members would care to go ; but I'm sure that someone here in the forums will have ideas if you're having a specific problem.

I believe that is called a soft demolition and a lot of work!!

Have you tried either of these places for parts?
