I hope everything comes in as expected or I'll never hear the end of it from my other half. This thing with the extras cost more than my first house!
In this Forum under "Tech Talk" there is a Sticky with a PDI list. One cannot do too thorough a PDI and that is advice from someone who has purchased 4 RV's new. Take your time and if possible do it with a friend/relative who has RVing experience. It is best for the Dealer person to be available but not accompanying you or you will feel hurried. My recommendation is to NOT sign for the purchase until all is resolved. If you are too anxious to get on the road, you will eventually pay for it. If you have to come back to the Dealer for something that could have been adjusted before you left the lot, you will most likely be put in the Dealer's cue for an appointment -- and then the time delays usually begin. Do not let them rush you on your PDI. It would be advantageous to advise the Dealer ahead of time of your intent at a very thorough PDI and even send him the document you will use. This might motivate him to do a better prep job also.
While you are at the Dealer's be certain to learn how everything works.
Best wishes for a very satisfied purchase.
