Default buying a 2002 1703 hi lo

hows it going im buying a hi lo tom and just wanted to know what to look for since this is my first rv and basically bought it for small family trips to the lake etc. all advised would be greatly appreciated i found also a check list Basically, start with the visual items
1. Exterior
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
2. Interior cleanliness of the unit-
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
3. Test appliance functions
lights
fans
refrigerator
air conditioner
heater
water pump
range hood
stovetop
oven (if equipped)
microwave (if equipped)
stereo (if equipped)
4. Lift System-
Does the unit raise and lower properly
Check the lift system for hydraulic leaks (puddle under the trailer)
Check the lift cables to see if they are in good shape and not frayed
Check the seal between the upper and lower body halves for tears or damage
5. fill the tanks to the top and check for leaks
6. Battery
7. Solar Panel (if equipped) i plan to print out and use thanks to rueben on this forum.

what i was told is that the awning needs to be replaced and clean title everything works.
also how do i test each of the functions? does unit have to be powered on etc. like i said this is my first rv lol.

The night b4 you go to see it, asked the owner to turn on the refrigerator. Some Hi Lo refrigerators are 3-way, AC, DC and propane. It would be good to have shore power connected too. Except for the A/C and microwave (if equipped) everything else should work without shore power.
A weight distributing hitch will most likely be needed for whatever tow vehicle you have.
