You are right about the fresh water tank pump switch. Had the same switch and monitor on my 98 Prowler.

Yes... The pump switch at the bottom is your fresh water pump switch. You only turn it on when using your tank (not city water), as it keeps your lines pressurized. If hooked up to a city water supply, no need to have it on.

I could not imagine a legit dealer trying to sell that unit for any price in the condition its in.

When we had it move by the local rv dealer we told him about the roof but he didn't look at it.He sold us some self leveling caulk and sealer for the roof.I'm going to try and do the repairs myself.We are using it as a temporary home while we build one on our land.

Any idea what the switch under the cabinet between the range hood and sink light goes to?

Also has built in stereo when powered off the speakers stay on with a static hissing sound.Could this be from water damage?

When the dealer moved the camper he said it was worth 11,000 and wouldn't sell it less than 6,500.We have officially purchased the camper yet it was a family members that said we could use it until next hunting seasons.

So I thought I would buy it after the dealer told me what it's worth.So should I avoid this one or is it worth the repair for the price?
My personal opinion it sounds a bit pricey with the water damage and needing a new roof and new caulking thru out the camper. Looks like it has been neglected. You can find better campers in better shape for that price I believe. less headaches hopefully. No way that TT is worth $11,000 in the shape it is in. And Even $6500 I personally would have walked away! Just my opinion.

Good Luck!

The dealer told him what they thought it was worth, but did not sell him the trailer. He is getting it from a family member for 4500, as per his quoted post above.

I'm going to the dealership today to see what they have in stock and to see what the cost of material to repair this one would be.

If he's getting the trailer from a family member in that condition he should rethink what that family member thinks of him. I wouldn't touch that unit if it was free. Because of the model year, I'd be willing to bet that Wildcat also has hidden water damage under the front cap.

If you already bought this unit and want to rebuild, I would buy materials from a home improvement store like Home Depot and not from an RV dealer. I'm not sure where to buy a new roof but I'm sure someone here can tell you.

I would have to agree!

He could check online for a new rubber roof or Get it from a dealer. Sounds like a lot of water damage and a mildew/mold problem to me!
