Hi all,
Where do you find parts for our trailers? I've been searching online and find one item at one place, another somewhere else, and so on. Are there any one-stop shopping places online that have become your favorites? What are they?

I'm looking for;

Belly band - about 32'
Butyl tape- lots
Fresh water inlet
stabilizer jacks - 4
Sink hand pump
mud flaps
interior light fixtures - 12v and LED


Thanks for recommendations!
Fran
Compact II '74

Fran, most RV dealers stock many of the replacement parts for these trailers as off-the-shelf items. There are those parts that will be more difficult to find replacements for... and you're going about finding those sources the right way.

Hi Fran . . . I don't know where you are in Washington State, but here in Vancouver, WA we have RV Pro, an RV parts & repair place that I'm pretty happy with. Their pricing is about the same as shopping the Internet, they have a thick catalog of parts they either have on-hand or can get within a day or two, and on the one occasion when the City Water connection I bought from them leaked, they swapped it for a working one.

Nice people.

The Belly Band is a standard aluminum extrusion, something you can order from a metal products supplier and (carefully) bend to match your trailer. Ask around, see if you have any friends that build or repair airplanes and they should be able to show you how to bend the stuff without disforming. If you have the old one it's probably easier to remove, strip, polish, and re-install it.
