Her we go with restoring these old fossils again, :laugh: , I have a 1979 Foretravel, and have found that most parts needed to restore Nellie Belle or no longer made. The good part is that most items needed are available in a somewhat newer version, such as light fixrures. They have a nice assortment out on the market. The newer water pumps for house water made by Sure-flo are a lot more dependable and have internal pressure regulators.

The engine and drive train parts are not computer controlled which gives us a better chance of fixing everything in our back yard.

West Marine has a lot of 12 volt lighting that looks real good and the same with campingworld.

Don't know it this helped or not.
