Basic contract law requires that all material facts known to the parties be disclosed. If the seller knew of the issues and did not disclose them and you purchased the trailer in reliance on the battery being functional, you may have a claim for rescission of the contract. By consulting with an attorney you can best assess the facts here and get the best appraisal of how to proceed.

An as-is sale does not have a warranty. You can check out all the systems, tires, wheel bearings, snd other stuff before you buy it. Change the battery.

Caveat Emptor. Let the buyer beware. Especially in the case of an as-is sale, the buyer has the responsibility to verify the status of the purchased object. If you could prove that the salesman knew of a problem, knew rather than merely suspected, you might have a case, but that would be nearly impossible to prove. You can try to get the seller to repair, replace, or refund, but it is more likely that you will have to bite the bullet and deal with it on your own.
