Sometimes, it is better to have the tech go away and leave you alone with the RV to look over all the things you can look over yourself. Then after you do that, go fetch the tech and go thru the other stuff.
We took 3 hours to go thru our PDI WITH the tech on stuff like turning on the Hot water heater, letting it get warm with electric, then finished getting hotter with electric, furnace, AC, What fuses in the panel box went to what... operating the radio, Television and DVD player, etc, Then we dismissed the tech to look over everything else very carefully. We found some things like a crooked bathroom door, and also able to see thru the bathroom door strike plat, crooked radio and coat hooks. We also found one blind string that was fraying. My wife went and fetched the tech and they fixed the other stuff we found on the spot. After all.... YOU are paying for it, NOT the tech. Would you rather find issues while there or have to go back later.
That is why they like to get rid of you before you can find too much stuff that needs fixed or adjusted.
Like Bekrck46 said, do not sign UNTIL AFTER you do the walk thru so you have more control.
