as for the traps they should be ok i used one for 20 yrs. i did have to add 
insulation to the outside about every 4 or 5 yrs. i used red insulation 
dope or you can use black liquid tape to seal the cracks. as for the  coax 
if it is the non foam type and not been outside it should be ok you can 
short the ends and use a noise bridge to check for loss . old arrl 
handbooks tell how,
if it is rated at a KW AM then you have a very good trap new ones are not 
rated for AM or RTTY. only problem i see is the rg58  taking a KW AM.. SSB 
maybe 800 watts .
