New to me 2008 Seneca HD 35GS

Headed to LA this weekend to pick up my new to me Seneca HD 35GS.

Will be my trailer hauler and base station at the track.

Bought this specific rig because PO hauled an enclosed trailer of motorcycles and added brake controlller, stronger leaf springs, shocks, tie rods, steering dampener and edge engine controller. Owner also appears to be meticulous in his care and maintensnce.

Batteries, tires, brakes, shocks, all fluids replaced within the past year and 4K miles, 35k Miles total.

What should I be looking for in the walk through?
Anyone point me to a checklist/punchlist?

Thx,

Mike

Welcome to the family.

Here is the checklist; https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f...ted-36094.html

Consider joining our Seneca family group;
https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/g...on+owners.html

We have done the same chassis upgrades and a few more to ours. Also know it pretty much inside and out if you have any more specific questions.

Let us know if you need anything when you pass through Phoenix.

What specifically would I be looking for? Is this hose to radiator?, end cap of radiator?

Am I looking for Coolant seepage. I would think anything more serious would have been revealed after 37k Miles.
