Our 1st PDI ever...

Hello Friends,
We're going to do our PDI for our brand new Whitehawk 27DSRL tomorrow morning. Are there any areas we should pay particular attention to? We are working with a very good local dealer and I have no doubt any issues will be properly addressed. But it is still nice to go in with a sense of where "trouble spots" may be lurking. I should add that this is our first TT and while we are excited about it, we are also a bit apprehensive that we may overlook something important.
Thank you in advance...
Glen & Bev

Two things I can think of. Either video tape it, or take really good notes. And there are no stupid questions, only the ones you don't ask.

Google RV checklist, there are several printable PDI checklist that cover EVERYTHING to check and how. Keep in mind that it's your money buying the unit, not the dealers'. Any issues that are found should be fixed immediately if possible, if not get an agreement in writing of when they will be fixed before signing off on the unit. Don't be pressured to sign off before the inspection is completed and YOU are satisfied. It's called a PRE-DELIVERY inspection for a reason.
Good Luck and Congrats on the unit...

May want to take a friend who is not part of the deal and ask him/her to look at the unit with a fine tooth comb. He will not see things thru the rosie glasses that a new owner might and is in a better position to notice flaws that you might miss. Like another poster said, it is your money and once the unit is driven off the lot you loose a lot of leverage with the dealer. The friend could also handle the video while you listen and learn. The PDI is a bigger deal than most people give it.

PDI = Pre-Delivery Inspection.

See this link for some info. RV.Net Open Roads Forum: PDI Checklist for NEW 2015 model from dealer

Your dealer, regardless of how "good", will only spend a minimal amount of time for the PDI. The dealer's goal is to go over some basic "stuff" and then have you sign the paperwork. Your goal is to take your time and inspect everything, even it means you'll inspect some things on your own time and inform the dealer when you're done. Congrats on your new TT ... Enjoy!

Another PDI reference:

Just select the items that pertain to your type of RV.

When we bought our first TT, it was recommended by a friend to video it for later references. It was a good idea, but somehow in my excitement I had forgotten to charge the battery in it. OOPS! The good thing about it was that the dealer was courteous enough to answer questions about everything that I had forgotten.
