2011 EB Screw with 20,935 miles. Oil looks and smells clean. Trailer hitch receiver doesn't look like it was used much. Not knowing what maintenance has been done, what should I do right off the bat?

Check all fluids. Top off as needed.
Check spark plug gaps. Set to .032 max
Grease all zerks. Have no idea how many or if there are any under there...
Drive the snot out of it! :D

At 20k isn't much of anything to do. As previously recommended check fluid levels. Do a sanity check stick your nose in and under the truck looking for any signs of previous damage or maintenance.

Possibly change the oil, if you don't know the last time it was changed.

Drive it.

Scheduled Maintenance (from the manual):

At every oil change interval as indicated by the information display
Change engine oil and filter.**
