Sorry, Can't be of much assistance, I've never had to investigate anything in this area. My coach doesn't have the rear slide so there could be some differences in wiring runs. In my M380 there are a couple of wiring bundles, one for house power and the other coach wiring, which are tucked into the upper corner of the body on the driver's side. I'm uncertain if they go all the way into the burnt area shown in the photo.

I might have to fly and look for myself..They say it runs and drive shifts..Heck they say they will deliver it for me which is a 900 mile trip..can lighting strike twice...Some people I have read said the main power runs under to the cabinet under tv.But for sure it does look like wiring to me probably for the side..Will have to ask more questions tomorrow..Thanks john

In the M380 with a rear slide the AC breaker panel is under the TV in the curb side corner. You might also want to google Karolina Koaches and see what comes up.

Randy is right on the money with his assessment. Take the amount of money that you think you will have to spend on fixing it, and double it. Then take the amount of time you think you will have to spend to fix it, and triple that. I am not trying to talk you out of it, just being realistic. Whatever the case, I would not even consider it unless you take the time and look it over real good in person. Pictures can be deceiving, and the pictures they have aren't scratch-n-sniff. You could easily end up having to replace all of the flooring, wall coverings and window treatments, etc.

what about water damage from the fire department?

Firemen are great at their jobs,but when they go to a fire they are not concerned about water damage,or anything other than putting the fire out!

Amen. Give a fireman an anvil, and in less than 5 minutes he will have broken it.

The M380 is a great coach,i have seen them sell from $110K to $130K in recent months.
I have one for sale with a new engine and always garaged for $125k.
Buy one you can use today,not a fixer upper that may be ready next spring!
