Thumbs up on 303!
Yup. I buy it by the gallon for various vehicles, transfer it to a spray bottle. About $50/gallon but worth it. Rubber loves 303. Plastic and fiberglass also.

The Winnebago grey tank has a strap holding it to the body, that was showing rust. Thick steel, that's good. There's a rubber isolator between the tank and the strap, that came loose.

The rubber body plugs I got from the VW dealer are fine. Kinda weird there are 20mm, 30mm, and 36mm. All of them sourced from newer VW's, NLA for a Eurovan. A 30mm plug would work everywhere, but VW.
