Before leaving the dealer, check the tire pressures. Good luck!

Welcome to JOF. Sure hoping for a great first trip. I would suggest holding off on a load of purchases and just get the things you will need for safety, like chocks and the basics. This shake down trip home will be a great lesson in what you need. You should get some basic stuff but will quickly find that there are many options and what is right for you is what you want. Get in the habit of checking tire pressures each morning before hitting he road.

Have a great experience.

My important things to take away from the dealer is how to connect and disconnect the trailer from the tow vehicle properly and how to use the trailers systems correctly.

You will be taking many trips and equipping the trailer will be one of the most enjoyable parts of it.

Hi Guys,
We did the same thing purchased the trailer in Michigan drove back to AZ. The dealer went to the factory and pulled the trailer back. Depending on the model only the lug nuts need to be checked for torque. The bearings are greased and factory torqued so they only need checking. The brakes I have in mine are self adjusting. You will also need a brake controller along with that Weight Distribution hitch. Dealers ships normally do all the set up and adjustments before you pick it up because 99% of all travel trailers sent to dealerships are towed by private vehicles. The dealership then passes that delivery charge on to you.

Before you leave the dealer, also make sure you account for all remotes, glass plate in the microwave, and the sink covers for the kitchen sink since your unit has the Elite package.

Thanks for all the advice. I will defiantly have this site open while I'm checking out the trailer.
