The quirks:
It starts up fine in good weather but needs the glow plugs replaced. We have them, just never got around to putting them in.

The drivers side back blinker doesn't work. I've spent some time looking in to this and can't figure it out.
The headlights don't work. It could be the on/off switch, I've been meaning to test that out.
A couple of the marker lights need replacing and covers.

The drivers seat needs to be hooked up to air. It's a nice seat, would be a little nicer with some air.

The inverter can't handle the fridge while not plugged in to shore power. When the fridge switches on, it overloads the inverter and shuts it off. We thought a 2000w inverter would be enough, apparently its not. Its no problem if you're staying plugged in but something to keep an eye on if traveling.

You can see some pictures of the build up and more on
