Picking up New 3011DS Friday

It's finally in!! We went up and looked at it today and should be coming home with it this Friday after spending the night at the dealer. Only problem we noticed is the entry door needs adjusting as there is a small amount of daylight showing thru. They did an excellent job on everything else. Paint looks good and we really love the pull down black out shades we ordered instead of the two handed day/night that always fall apart. I forgot to snap a couple of pictures but will do that when it is cleaned up. And yes, it does have LED tail/brake/backup lights and the LED clearance lights on the cap.

One question.....Does anybody know what the light switch right next to the Fantastic fan control is for? It is not for any of the overhead or under counter lights as near as we could tell and is not a power switch for the fan control. Our salesman was not sure without looking in to it.

Can't help you with the light switch question yet. Our 3171DS just arrived at the dealer today, but we haven't gotten by to see it yet. Waiting for our salesman to contact us for the walk thru. Couple of quick question, how long was your walk thru? Did you take a check list of your own with you and if so, what was on it? Thx, Ben

We have not done the walk thru yet. That will be done Thursday I hope. Dealer said it should take about 3 hours. We wanted to see it since the unit was ordered with some unusual changes (eliminated window over bed, pull down blackout shades).

Here is a link to the PDI checklist I plan on using

I downloaded a 10 page walkthrough when I went through mine but didn't end up using it. Here is a list of the probs with my '16 3171DS.

1. Subwoofer fuse blown. If the audio is all treble then sub is not working, period.
2. Broken composite cable on bunk tv
3. Jensen in wall dvd would load dvd and stop playing after 2 min. (take a few test dvds and get them all going at the same time on different tvs.
4. Sat cable severed.
5. dream dinette had a wrinkle in the facing
6. Passenger recline issue (specific to 3171 without outdoor tv opt)
7. Playing a DVD from front dash to main tv results in analog scan lines running across tv
8. When in nav mode with no radio playing, hearing occasional popping sound from speakers.
9. LP Tank gauge defective

Honestly, I didn't feel compelled to spend all day at the dealership going through the coach with a fine tooth comb as many people insist needs to be done. Instead I did a basic walk through and have discovered most of my issues spending time in the coach in my own driveway.

I just ordered my 3011 with same option of no window over the bed. At first the dealer said F.R. Rep said no...then when I contacted the factory rep, I got a yes. Having that window over the bed is really a dumb idea. It's cold / wet / in the way when sitting up in bed. I am really looking forward to seeing your pictures GL1800Rider . There are only poor pictures of the 2016 paint scheme. Having a hard time waiting 10 weeks for delivery
Jim
