Thanks, folks. I'll look into both options. I'm not particularly handy with electronics, but there's always an opportunity to learn how to solder and heat-wrap. Also, I'll keep my eyes open on ebay--a used ancient harness can't possibly cost more than a single arm and leg.

RVGuy 101, if you do have a '76 parts harness, I'd like it. Thanks!

I'm back to update.
Currently, the RV is at a mechanic. We're stripping parts and taping over holes so we can clean the engine compartment early this week. We've found a rebuilt carb for about $200 and other sundries are falling into place, but the wiring harness burned in places when the engine caught fire, and that's still impossible.

There's one https://medford.craigslist.org/rvs/d/1976-american-clipper-rv/6461886094.html '76 (same model year as me) that might supposedly have a wiring harness, but at this point I think it would be as much hassle as building a new harness entirely from scratch and gumption.

This website offers a huge bevy of connectors for the engine and cab of my vehicle, so I think we could string together all the correct connectors and make a go of it.

However, I think some phone calls and advice from people who know more than I do would go a long way. Any clues for where I should hunt would be helpful. Thanks!

I looked into replacing my harness.  I determined that even if I found one, I would have to check every line to make sure there was no short.  I would buy the connectors and build a new one.  That way you KNOW it doesn't have any faults.
