It's Spring!!! Opening up the trailer

So I've been given approval from she who must be obeyed to bring the trailer home this weekend and play with it.

My Plan of Attack.
Open everything up to air out the trailer.
Check over the roof and all seals.
Address the surface rust on the frame
Wash, polish and wax the exterior.
Clean an dust the interior.
Install the battery master switch I didn't do last fall.
Load all the stuff we took out last fall.

If it's warm enough, camp out on Saturday night in the driveway with the kids.

Any other ideas from you experienced guys?

Sounds like a good plan. Especially that last part.

I don't know if you can say you're going to "play with it." But I just reply "By your command" to my wife.

Sounds like a great plan! Pouring a slab on our permanent site Saturday so we can move the camper and have a porch. Ready for warm weather so we can enjoy the lake and the camper!

A few minor additions...
Lube the pop-up antenna on roof.
Lube slides and jacks
Check trailer brakes, exterior lights, etc.
Check water in battery
Check air in tires.
Check propane levels
