Run the generator under load

We also purchased in the winter. The only issue we found was when running the generator, turning on the A/C shut it down. Fixed now but was a PITA with the dealer.

We have been through ALL of this in the WINTER! Super Cold but Clear roads! Dealership was Small so NO inside pre Heat! We were able to Test the H and Cold system with 50 PSI Air,No leaks! Come Spring the FW tank leaked and filled the Belly Cover,bad tank,and after replacing the Tank and tank heater the Water pump was Junk as well,2 things that could NOT be Tested with Air! Go for the COMPLETE PDI! Youroo!!

and if you wish, you could watch the "Winterize Job" and take notes.

FYI

I did have the RV dealer un-winterize the unit and fill it with water even after they informed that it was not necessary. In the end, I found a big leak under the sink which required changing out the faucet and the ice maker in the frig was not working. In the next week or two I will be taking it back to check out the ice maker and look at a few other minor things.
