3) Batteries. If they are over 6 years old, just replace them.
4) Converter charger likely is due for replacement if it's a 20 year old original.
5) Make sure heat, fridge, stove, oven, and A/C work before you depend on them. 20 years is a while for an A/C unit ....
More of a deep dive stuff:
6) Floors are plywood. If they get wet, they get soft that can be fun to fix
7) Rear end separation. Do a search and dig into the details. You want to catch it
if there is an issue.
8) Leaks from anywhere. All that stuff going through the skin is caulked. 20 years is a long time for caulk to last ..... best to spend some time looking here and there. The old stuff gets removed before new goes on .... yuck ....
None of this is specific to the trailer you own. The entire list may have been taken care of by the PO last year. It's just a bunch of guesswork. There's also the usual "deep clean everything / everywhere" that one does on any new this or that. Just how deep that gets is very much up to you ....
