Need a pro for a complete review of my 1966 AS safari Boynton Beach Florida

Need a pro for a complete review of my 1966 AS safari in Boynton Beach Florida. Seems the local shops are not interested in checking things out.
I called 3 of them.

To scared of liability, too long a wait, and far too expensive.
$300 quote to look at brakes...when/if they have the time.

If anyone has a knowlegable person in my area please send me a note.

The safari is in very good condition. I just want peace of mind on the first of many trips.

Ny needs are review of brakes, check for LP leaks, General towing instruction and hookup of P3 in TV.

Thank you!

Gas Leaks

You can probably do a fair job of checking for gas leaks yourself. Propane has a distinctive, unpleasant odor, not quite like natural gas but just as sharp. If you notice that smell inside or outside (even underneath) the trailer, you may have a leak.

You can also go to your home improvement store and ask for a small bottle of gas leak detector. It is a liquid soap that you can spray on connections, fittings, and any rough looking spots on the hoses. If you can see little bubbles after spraying on the soap, there is a leak.

Good luck with the other items, I don't have any suggestions for your location.

If you have a Truck and Trailer USA (I think there is one in West Palm), they might be helpful with brakes and general towing issues. Mine in Tennessee has been extremely helpful and has done good work. Plus they are way less expensive the the RV shops.
