When RVs sit at dealer lots, assuming you bought your from a dealer, the salespeople are really hard on batteries. They leave them sitting with lights on over night or radios, etc and run down the battery frequently. Then no one bothers to plug the TT in to recharge the battery and before you know it the battery is ruined. Heck, another favorite trick of theirs is to move batteries around the lot of TTs as they are showing units trying to find one that’s got some charge left.
So, it’s common to end up with a ruined battery right from day one unless you make the dealer supply a new one at closing.
I’m not saying this has happened to your battery, but it’s possible that this happened OR the previous owner mistreated the battery, as well.
You can try to save that battery, but unless you know it’s history you might want to cut your losses and not waste time trying to save it. When owning a new RV you’ll find that batteries are a major issue and that their care and use is a vital component. Don’t skimp on some cheapest possible battery - do some research and get a good one. Also, consider getting two batteries, if you’re replacing the current one. Upgrading your TT from one battery to two will prove to be a wise decision that you’ll be glad you made, and the time to do that upgrade is when you can get two identical brand new batteries at the same time.
The only other thing I’ll mention is your travel trailer’s tires. Sure, yours are only 4-years old and have lots of wear left, but TTs are notorious for coming with cheap tires and are prone to blowouts. A blowout on the road is not only is a hassle (do you have the gear to change a TT tire?) but many times does body damage to the TT, as well.
The cheapest insurance you can get is to replace all four tires now with better ST tires, maybe Goodyears, so you can know they are in good shape.
I know you just spent a lot of money on your new-to-you TT, but spending a bit more right now will prevent a lot of additional headaches down the road. Trust me.
I grew up in Akron, and we’ve taken our motorhome to Ohio 3 or 4 times to visit family. There aren’t a ton of camping options in the Cleveland/Akron area. We always stay at the Streetsville KOA. It works well for visits to the new Cuyahoga Valley National Park. And, of course Lake Geneva State Park is a fun stay, too. Most Ohio State Parks are perfect getaways.
