Congrats and welcome to JOF! Wow is a beast very nice, you want to make sure that you have two batteries in that my dealer only put one battery so now I have to buy another battery but no worry.

Very good. There are at least 3 of us now. I second the second battery! Dealer only had one in during my PDI.

Also check the tank doors, hopefully yours has the new low profile hinges. Mine was hitting the hinge and bowed out the door. Dremel tool to the rescue.

Congrats. Been out in mine only once, I love my mobile hotel. Came from a hybrid.

Yes

My tank doors were pushed out by the tank latch, had the PDI Tech make adjustments. Also had to explian to him about the air cushion in the water heater.

Sorry about that. The propane tank doors are what I was referring too.

I brought it up at the PDI and the worker showed me other rigs and that is how I know they had some with a low profile latch. He said he could not do anything to fix it because they used spring steel. Believe it or not he said if the door breaks you have warranty! Really!

Any of you folks using air bags or other addons on your 3500. My new trialer is about the same pin weight dry. Leaving this Thursday for the Maiden Trip. It will tell me if I would need to add something to my 2013 F350 SRW. My last trailer was fine. I stopped by the CAT Scale on my way home from the dealer and I'm about thousand pounds under my legal limit.

I have not installed airbags on my truck. Does nit seem to squat to much and it handles fine. I have timbrens on my list but after our maiden voyage I put the shocks for the RV higher on the list.

See the thread I started on Timbrens. I like them and they have great customer service. I now have the softer ones they sent me on and improved the ride greatly. Mine is a 2018 Ram 3500 CC LB SRW. Also, I recorded our PDI a couple of months ago on our 355. I reviewed the videos and can't believe how much I've already forgotten. Great to go back and review it.

Congratulations. Our 355 is so similar to the 357. I recorded our PDI with my go pro. Nice to go back and review.

Congrats. Staying for our second time in our 357.
How did the PDI go? No problem with the propane tank door?

That is normal. The one control modules outputs are all used so the do not have that awning or light connected. Kind of a bummer.
