Four new tires and our trailer is ready to pull home, we plan to do it Wednesday. As I replaced the tires I also pulled the hubs and checked then repacked the wheel bearings. The electric brakes seem to be working, (they move when power is applied) and we will only pull the trailer about 10 miles to get it home so I am not worried.

When I get it home I plan to clean it inside and out, then find and fix problems.

Pictures to follow

Thanks for all your help so far, I am sure I will need much more

Put a duct tape 'patch plug' over the interior plumbing drains at the bath/shower, bath sink and galley sink (don't forget the overflow safety drain, if provided) just to keep what ever pre-dates y'all in pipes INSIDE the pipes when towing & the wind is winding through the trailer - and then keep the air-lock drain traps full once home while you clean and disinfect the system.

This would be a good opportunity to clean and dump the holding tank if its not spotless already - yes, a PITA to include a dump stop now & have the hose & valves checked and working but still easier than a special trip later on. I failed to do this, or tape the drains, when retrieving my new trailer and regret it.. see 1st Dump & North Country Warning!!
