I won on all issues so, then, what issues will be the focus of the appeal?

Answer:

In Pennsylvania, the appeal from a small claims court decision in your case sets aside every determination made by the magistrate a/k/a district justice in your case.

An appeal from small claims court is considered
de novo. In essence, any party can appeal for any reason and the appellate court (most likely an arbitration panel) will have a full and complete opportunity to address all issues that were before the magistrate. Hence, every fact and point of law that went your way will be treated as null and void if the other side appeals the magistrate's decision.
