What to grab from a motorhome?

I am having a '79 BFA Onan 4.0 delivered to me from a father of a former neighbor for only $150!!!!
It came out of a '79(?) motorhome.
I'm wondering what else i should have him grab for me while he's at it such at the electrictrical panel, converters, chargers? Sorry, can't think properly today. My head is killing me, just don't want useful stuff to be trashed even if its decades old.
Maybe i can find a use for it later on?

Water tanks, sinks, appliances. There's a ton of stuff in a MH that's reusable in a skoolie.

That Onan should have its own start/stop switch in the motorhome so grab it and the wire that goes to the gen itself in the control panel. Makes life easier starting and stopping the gen from inside the bus cabin.

It's gas I presume, is your bus a gasser too?

No bus yet. This is more for stand by for the house , but I figured whatever else might come in handy for the future skoolie.

I believe he's grabbing that as well. It was weird. He loves Waaaaay down in the bayou from me, but I mentioned my classic car and he knew exactly what house I lived in , because he's in love with my car. Turns out his daughter was a former bartender/ neighbor/friend of mine and she had just mentioned to me last week about her dad and my old Riv. Small world
