Mormass---Check list--- '75 Excella

I recently purchased a used Excella n was wondering if there is a tread for a check list of the things I need to check and/or address before actually takn it bac out on the road/camping. Check for leaks, reseal windows/doors, tanks, frig, wtr heatr, ect....u get the picture....
Also I'm be needing some supplies, caulk and sealers, ect....cause it's been sitting for about 5 yrs.
Where's a good place to order it from? Oh yeah and thanks everyone for the help with my ambiblical cord I'll be going Sat or Sun to pick it up. It's in pretty good shape for the 150 mile trip home, but I need 2 check everything out real good B/4 going back out on the road..
Thanx,
Mormass

More than likely the trailer will need new gaskets for the windows, access compartments, the entrance door and especiall the sewer vent pipe covers, as they only last 2 to 3 years.

Since the trailer has been parked for an extended period of time, you should check out the axles. The following articles will help you to do that.

The Dura-Torque Axle
