2009 Sundance

I purchased our 2009 fifth wheel in 2015 from a private owner. He always kept it protected from the weather by keeping it in his barn. Since purchasing I had a RV carport built and have kept it protected too. About the only thing I have done in the six years is have the bearings packed and replaced the tires. I’ve had no issues at all but want to take it in this fall to have it checked out just for peace of mind. My question to other owners is there anything I should be asking them to check that I might be missing? I live in the Seattle area so I’m glad I keep it covered. I’ll have them check the roof, AC, slides, appliances, etc… Thanks in advance.

My first thought is spend a weekend or two in it, and just see if everything is working okay. For the same reasons you replaced your tires for age, the slide seals might be getting hard and checked as well. And as always the roof, and all surfaces that have caulking on them should be looked at to see if there is any areas that need touched up. I too keep my RV under a large car port, so it keeps the majority of the inclement weather off the largest part of my rig, but outside is hard on anything.

I just took it out last weekend and everything worked great. I’m taking it out again at the end of the month.
