Welcome to the Forum from Western New York State! Congratulations on the Precept purchase.

Best advice I can offer, is to do a very thorough PDI, making sure every system works properly, where it is, and that you know how to operate them. Be sure the manuals are in it, and look the whole RV over inside and out for any concerns before you leave with it. Happy camping!

Congratulations and welcome to the JOF. Keep in mind that you are purchasing a used RV and as such you will not have the Jayco warranty as that is not transferable. So as previously mentioned, make sure you check everything out before you hand over the check. Once you drive off with it there is no going back whether it be a private party or a dealer so it’s on you to know what you are getting. Not trying to scare you off but rather want you to go in with your eyes open. Good luck and enjoy the lifestyle.

Congrats ..... If you have never driven a Class A..... i would recommend learning about the pivot point of an RV. Below is a decent video and you can find others.

More congrats here. Make sure hot water is hot, and all A/C's and heaters work. Plug something in to test all receptacles. Make sure fridge cools on electric and gas. Make sure fridge can hold large wine bottles and at least a twelve pack!!!

Thanks for the tips, everything is working as it should, we head out for a weekend getaway and get familiar with setup and all.

For that size Precept you'll want your tires at 95 psi (cold) and have the front end alignment checked.
