Take a camera and record the PDI.
Ask questions about ANYTHING you did not catch the first time even if you need them to show you how again.
How does the couch fold out?
Where are the bypass valve? (make them show you)
Pop a bag of pop corn or boil a cup of water.

See if dealer vacuumed any construction sawdust from cabinets. Check each furnace register for any blockage in the vent pipes. The PDI checklist is very important. You might consider e-mailing your dealer a copy so they know what you're going to be checking. Hope all goes well for you.
x2 and check everything.
When I had my PDI I was shown in detail what to do and I dotted down notes. Then the employee refreshed my memory on what I had learned below going through the unit with me explaining what needed to be done. It was a long day for me but everything was checked and all worked correctly.
Have questions or not sure about something? Keep asking until you fully understand. After taking delivery consider doing a bit of driveway camping. It's a great way to refresh your memory after a long day at the dealership.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
