A few questions:

1)I'm about to close the heater back in, I know there was insulation around it... But I forget where: covering the holes? Around whole things? Don't cover holes?

2) is this an inline filter cup of some sort? Because, see, the lid breaks when you run into it say 7 times.
Where can I get a new one?

3) the undersink hose fitting for the hand pump was very brittle and snapped off when I pushed new hose on. There is a valve inside that I've never dealt with. Is this a normal box store piece or do I need to order it?

1 - I wouldn't insulate anything, none of my furnaces have ever had it in 30 years.
2 - Any RV store has an inline filter - move it if you need to make a new one fit.
3 - Looks like a standard pipe thread - big box store and get a coupling, then put in a new pipe fitting for the hose.

2) My filter broke in the same fashion on my Scamp > I discovered the break when I turned on the pump and found water was running out on the ground under the trailer. New filter was about $5 at local RV store . I added some hose on the pump side of the filter and moved the filter / screen to a safer location.

Kevin, there is no insulation on or near my Scamps furnace. You might want to down load the manual from the documents centre here to see if there are any install instructions.

All sounds great. Thanks.

Now I have a dometic vent brand new from scamp for my AC access panel and it didn't come with any hardware to attach it in the hole I need to cut...

The refrigerator cover has metal clips that hold the cover to the fiberglass with tension from a bolt going through vent cover then through the metal clipClick image for larger version

Number One Tip (Albeit after the fact) Always take pics before and as you take things apart.

This is the pic of the fridge vent clips as reference... I haven't cut hole for AC yet because I'm curious if they should have given me these clips, if I can buy them, or I have to make them.

All the vents installed by Scamp on my trailer are riveted on. Put some butyl tape under the edges of the vent before riveting.
