Trailer Sitting 2 years

Due to taking care of a family members failing health, our 2006 JayFeather 29n hasn't been used in 2 years. The water system still has the RV antifreeze, and everything is the same as when it was readied for winter 2011. Tires are excellent.
Other than double checking the wheel bearings, is there any thing I'm not thinking of to get it ready to go again?

Check the battery.
While you're looking over the bearings make sure the brakes are still free to move.
The roof may need a once-over too.

I would also recommend going through all the various systems such as the water heater, stove, frig, and etc to make sure they work. Spiders like to make homes in the orifices.

Check the date codes on the tires. If you have the original tires it is time to replace them no matter what they look like. The tires were probably made in 2004 or 2005. Most think 5 to 7 years is the life of the tires.

X2 A trailer or MH that sits will cause more tire problems than one that had been on the road. That can be verified on Michelin's web site.

Take a test run not to far from home so that you can shake down all the vital equipment. Good to run everything for a couple days. Flush the tanks and check the battery as others have mentioned. Have a good time.
