Question Pick up my 07 designer tomorrow

Well I am going to pick up my 2007 Designer 31RLTS tomorrow. I will be doing a walk through. They were detailing it today and I had the Dealer check the wheel bearings and install 2 new 12 volt batteries. Is there anything I should be extra leary of or that needs careful inspection. They are a reputable company and I have purchased 3 RV's from them in the past. They have done a [ropane safety check and all of the lights. I assume the checked the brakes while checking the wheel bearings. Any advise would be appreciated.
TIA
Mel

Make sure the slides open fully and level out. Also make sure they close tight. Check the entrance door for proper operation and look the closet over carefully. It might not hurt to count the light bulbs too. All this is from personal experience. Check the couch fabric for quality, (no runs).

I would ask them to throw in extra fuses, light bulbs, and a water filter cartridge just to have on hand. Congrats you will love the Designer.

Everything went fine. I did the walk through and took 2 hours inspecting everything. They installed 2 new batteries. Did a safety inspection and water and propane leak test. Checked and run all systems and checked all lights and appliances. Checked and operated all slides and even tried the central Vacuum cleaner. Everything was fixed and working.

We will be taking it on a short 300 mile trip to Laughlin Nevada on the 10th. Will dry camp for 4 days. I have it at our winter home in Yuma AZ right now and will be putting all of the stuff from the old fiver into this one. I unloaded everything from the old fiver here at home, before I turned it into the dealer. Here is a Link to some pictures of it taken today after I got it home.
