Everybody on this forum seems to be very knowledgeable and helpful so I'm hoping that someone can guide me to links on the above information. Anything on a 1997 or 1998 National Tropi-Cal 6330 or similar would be helpful. Technical information or sales brochures. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the link. Reason I asked was my lack of success with Googling the info.

Information on the appliances can be found from the manufacturer of the appliance. Use the "Contact Us" button on the manufacturer's website, give them the model and serial number, and they will send you the information.
Information on the Ford Chassis can be found in various places; Chilton's and Haynes manuals, and from Ford.
Information on the coach; good luck. The last time I tried to find any such information (from Fleetwood, on a 1977 Pace Arrow, many years ago) I was told that my coach did not exist, that serial number had never been used, no such coach had ever been built!

Yup! Only problem I'm having with the chassis info is delineating where it ends and the coach begins. The coach, on the other hand . . . . and, of course, National is defunct.

chassis componets are frame and running gear, and associated electrical
if you can find it on a car truck or bus, its chassis
excluding such add ons as jacks, airbags etc.

anything above the floor is probably RV not chassis

To get a general idea of what Ford contributed to your Class A motorhome chassis simply look at a picture of a stripped basic Ford F-53 chassis of your specific year if you can find one. With the info given to you so far you should be able to find that. If it's included in the picture, Ford assembled it. Everything else was provided by the coach builder. Some assemblies could be a combination of components from the chassis manufacturer (Ford) and the coach manufacturer. As an example, Ford may provide some of the chassis air conditioning/controls/gauges/vents/etc. which are then fitted (by the coach builder) to the complete dash board which is manufactured/supplied by the coach builder.

As an image example, see this link for a picture of the 2018 Ford F-53 chassis:
