That's not just "wise words" for used trailers, but for new ones as well. Every week we have posts about people with water leaks, water heaters that won't work, furnaces that won't turn on, air conditioners that aren't connected to the thermostat, heat strips "hanging" in the air conditioner and not connected, cabinet doors that won't close, stove burners or ovens that won't light, windows that won't open or that won't close, cushions that don't fit the dinette properly, TV's that won't work, sound bars that aren't connected, outside speakers that don't work, awning lights that won't turn on, doors that won't lock or unlock properly, shower doors that won't close and/or that leak.... The list goes on and on and on and on......
So, words to the wise, when purchasing an RV (new or used) hook up water and test it, as well as go through the RV checking everything. Don't take the dealer's word for it that "they checked it and you're ready to go camping".... Then, when you get it home, find problems and call the dealer, their first appointment in service is in the middle of your "special trip that was the reason for buying the trailer in the first place" and they won't (or say they can't) work you in any sooner, so your trip is ruined or you go with a busted camper.......
