Service Recomendations

Good morning folks. OK, so we have a 2003 Classic. We have only owned it the last year. So do not not have a firm idea on how it has been serviced. it has been well cared for.

So, we have an appointment at A/S in jackson center next week for general service. I want them to look over the brakes, bearings, etc.

o the question is, what would you have serviced at this point in this trailers life?

JC does excellent work but they are not inexpensive. Since you don't know the service history of your trailer, having the bearings repacked and brakes and hubs checked is a good start. If you are not mechanically inclined, having them check the operation of the water heater, furnace, AC, water pump and refrigerator might provide some peace of mind. But if it ain't broken.....

Maybe have them perform a pressure leak test. Check all the roof vent seals etc.

Your Classic falls out of the range of 2005-2009 Classic hydraulic brake recall.
Not sure if your Classic has hydraulic brakes.

We were in the same situation 3 years ago when we bought our 2007 trailer used. We left it there over the winter to get the discount. They did everything mojo suggested and also informed us that the frame and the underneath portion of the trailer needed to be painted due to rust. We also had a street side awning installed. When we picked it up in the spring, we stayed the night in the terraport to make sure everything worked. We discovered the furnace would not light on a near freezing night. I marched in there at 7am and they ended up putting in a new furnace right then and there. At least it was at the winter discount rate.
