New buyer checklist

Next Monday I pickup my new (to me) 2014 Airstream Flying Cloud 30. I think I am ready. I don’t want to go overboard but I don’t want to miss anything obvious. I am going to be too excited to think clearly so I want to write down on a piece of paper (or my iPad) the things I should look at.

What am I missing?

Things to take with me
A Sonin moisture meter.
A Schumacher battery load tester
A Prime Products AC line monitor
Airstream Inspection Checklist
A tape measure

Inside
Open and close all doors, windows and drawers
Open and close all faucets/hot water
Test all AC outlets
Test all switches
Test air conditioner/furnace
Test inverter
Test for moisture in back of cabinets
Test microwave
Test TVs/Radio

Outside
Open and close all doors/latches
Inspect roof
Test (not leveling) stabilizer jacks
Extend/retract steps
Extend/retract awning
Inspect dump valves
Inspect spare tire
Test backup camera
Inspect/test batteries
Inspect LP gas tanks
Note tire age
Visually inspect axles/brakes
Attached Files
File Type: xls Air trailer inspection.xls (55.0 KB, 97 views)

Does it have leveling jacks, or just stabilizer jacks?

The power jack will get tested when you hook up to your tow vehicle.

You are right. I think they are stabilizer jacks. The manual kind too. So just planning on making them go down, and making them go back up with the included tool.

That a very comprehensive list. It should give you a good idea of how everything is working.

One small point. Your list includes "Test leveling jacks" Airstream trailers do not have leveling jacks. The crank down stabilizers are not used to level the trailer.
