Welcome. Just to keep it that way, don't cut any wiring blindly. I'd suggest that before dismantling anything you have a problem with that you might need in future, take a few pics of how things are originally. You'll get over the exhaustion but not the excitement anytime soon.
Enjoy your build experience.

John

Welcome! --- I will second keeping a photo record of anything involving more than two screws as well as the order of disassembly. It is also a good idea to start and keep a journal of anything you install. Amazingly easy to forget what brand or source you employed for some fix after a year or so.

Welcome to our skoolie group! I am looking forward to seeing your progress!
The other piece of advise is DO NOT remove the heater system without clamping the hose or you'll have radiator fluid all over your bus! FYI
