I always ask before going to see a trailer that they have water in all the tanks, hot water tank turned on, fridge
on and propane
in at least one tank so I can try switching items running on electrical
over to propane
That way you can be sure things are working. Run the shower, water pump, light
the stove etc. Open up the grey water tank and watch the water flow out ;-)
It is what the parties selling me the last two trailers did and what I did when selling the Scamp
(unasked). Both parties I have purchased from (out of the Country & sight unseen) took a lot of time to showing me how each item worked including emptying tanks etc. I tried to do the same with the party who purchased from me.
If someone is not willing to even do that then I would pass on the trailer for sure.
If they say it has no propane
tank or battery
- then bring your own! Although to be honest I do not understand folks who can not be bothered to even replace those items prior to selling. Would make me wonder about what else they could not be bothered with.
