I've found over the years when you start taking stuff apart you'll usually find trouble in the form of broken parts or whatever. Do a visual inspection of the area and go deeper if you find evidence of insect or varmint activity. Other than that, if it's working leave it alone.

We used to have a tent trailer long time ago and none of that stuff was ever done. The first trailer we had none of it was ever done, now all of a sudden I get told that it should be done every year, Wife and I thought it was a ploy just to get money out of us. Asked the service guy if it is supposed to be done every year then why wasn't I told about it last year. Thank you everybody. So people kids jeeez

We had our Prowler travel trailer for 13 years and never did anything with the water heater or furnace. We did open the top of the stove and clean things up about once a month when we were using it a lot.

X2. I vacuumed and wiped out mine a month or two ago. Just be careful of the igniter wires going to the burners. You get a lot of junk down there from cooking. Keeping it clean removes a food source that can attract ants and other undesirable critters.

clean

Do not mess with what works. If it stops working you can mess with it.

I do drain and flush my hot water heater usually at the end of the season when I drain the water for winterizing. This is when I inspect the Hot Water Heater Anode Rod.

We don't consume any of our trailer tank water and it is just used for washing dishes and showers etc... We bring along bottled water for our cooking and drinking. We also bring bottled water to use in making our fresh ground and brewed bean coffee. It requires the same brand of water to get the same coffee taste we like.
