Besides everything else also check the capacity and the date on the battery.

Do a shore power test and then do a battery power test. After testing those things that will only run on shore power, disconnect the shore power line and finish inspecting the trailer while on battery. If there is something seriously wrong with the battery it might show up during the course of your inspection.

I would also open the exterior exhaust grills and check for anything out of the ordinary.

Anything we should be aware of or ask when we have our demo with the dealer?

A few of the most common problems when people get there camper home .

Have them show you how to operate both gas and electric side of hot water heater and where the switches are.

Have them show you specifically how to work the furnace thermostat such as what auto and on switch does as well as if its a digital thermostat how to program it.

Ask what every switch in the camper does!

Make sure you know how the dvd surround sound radio center work .

And lastly have them show you the distribution panel with converter and fuses and how it works.
