Wow, nice list. If I would have not bought off the internet and had it delivered I might actually know more about my camper! <grin> No wonder I have to ask so many questions around here. So there is a way to manually operate a slide... never occured to me! I guess I should go over this list and know about these things and how they pertain to my camper... more to learn!

I'm buying off the internet, too, but going up to RVW in Ohio to pick it up. I made this list because I have one shot at these guys and didn't want to leave anything out. Pick it up July 5!

Manual slide operation involves a tool that looks like a scissor jack handle and cranking until you get a blister.

man that is a pretty inclusive list
however
i would have the dealer fill all the tanks, including the fresh water
then drain em and ask him why the tanks still read 3/4 full, my black tank has done that since the first week

I would definitely have them check the tank sensors. When our trailer was delivered on May 29th the black and fresh water tanks showed half full. The delivery person said hmmm maybe that's why she was swaying on me coming here. We went camping that weekend and after dumping the tanks the black and fresh water tanks still showed half full. I called Dave @ RVW and he said to try some tank sensor cleaner. I bought some but haven't had time to try it yet.

Tank sensors are all junk...and I seldom rely on them.

Keeping your tanks clean/flushed is a good way to help, but it's not perfect.
Some people add on The Tornado or something similar to help clean them.
Water....lots and lots of water and a nice drive around the neighborhood sloshes around nicely in the tank. (maybe some ice cubes and a little water) I hear that loosens sludge.
