:you do this on a regular schedule then you will never have problems, only takes a minute to check your frame, pull wheels and drums check to see condition of grease and if needs it then buy the tool that helps you do the work, it is not to expensive and if u do not know how learn how.
To check air in tires
real easy to do. Go to your favorite garage and have them put a load test on your battery
(they will usually do this free) if bad buy a new batter but make sure it is Deep Cel battery
, if not plugged in then buy a 50A solar panel
it will keep your battery
charged, and if plugged in then u don't have to worry.
Want cooling and your roof has a vent hole in it they are usually 14" square then buy a new complete Vent called Fantastic Fan 3 speed with Forward/Reverse on is to remove hot air from the interior and the other is to bring cooler air in.
Make sure you check the air in your spare tire and that it is a decent spare.
inside trailer to LED as save power where you can.
I know longer have a trailer but even when I did I kept my Propane Fridge
on 24/7 so far no problems and I do not expect there will be any as I have my lines inspected every two years to make sure no leaks
, I do this to keep my insulin cold and were usually out there from 3 weeks to 3 months any time of the year.
When camping and you get a heavy rain check anywhere there is a hole in the FG like windows
, doors, vent, to make sure no water coming in as u really do not want mold.
This is the same as looking after your car or your apartment or house. Once u have done it a few times it will get easier.
