Getting new 351

Going through PDI on the second of May. Does anyone have a good PDI on digits?

I am still learning about the terminology used here, what is? "PDI on digits"

I hope this is what you want.

I suggest going through everything to include running your residential refrigerator on batteries, and checking all cable connections. Have the dealer somehow hook something up to the cable jack in the basement to make sure you can see it on all TVs. Same thing with antenna. Have them fill your tires to 92 psi. If you can, as part of the deal, have the dealer relocate the trailer's plug connector to an area where it won't get destroyed. Check the front lower grill and make sure that each sheetmetal screw that secures it has a large washer. If not, it could come off going down the road. For your sound system, make sure the subwoofer works in all volumes. The FR installed amp for the subwoofer is way underpowered for the size of the sub. Good luck, and please post how it goes.

Put your jacks down and your slides out and in then make sure you check the basement storage, see if anything is leaking, our hydraulic pump blew out.

Check the block that holds the door in the tracks going into the master bedroom. Ours was barley screwed into the floor. Also, several of the cabinets doors wouldn't stay shut when going down the road, so give them a quick pull to make sure they are good and tight. There's a good chance it will still have pressurized lines from winterization. We didn't realize this until our first trip out. Check both CD players in DVDs in bunks, as one of ours didn't work as well. Make sure all the seals on the windows have been put in correctly as several of ours were put in backwards causing trouble when we rolled them out and then back in. Best of luck.

I am so bookmarking this thread, our 351 is also due within the next 2 weeks (in final finish last week according to our rep) and assuming they can find a driver to get it all the way out here!

Please, keep the suggestions coming!

Tap on the driver and passenger's side windows to make sure they are tight while they are fully closed. The sliding glass will rattle and drive you nuts if they are not adjusted properly. There are clips on the horizontal part of the frame that the glass should fit snuggly into. On both side of hours it was not and had to adjust them myself.

Check both side privacy curtains as well as the front one for loose screws. I was driving down the road and a screw dropped out of nowhere. It was one of a few that secure the front curtain. I didn't know where it came from until the curtain was deployed and noticed that it was crooked. Also, the side curtains are barely secured to the top. As a matter of fact, they are noisy as all get out and I will be doing something to fix them. The problem is the curtain's frame is installed with three snap clips. The clips are secured with one screw each. The only clip that is properly secured (enough wood to properly torque them) is the front one. The two other clips are installed on really thin wood paneling and will eventually fall off. The other problem is that even if all three were properly secured, the frame will always rattle within the clips. I'm going to remove the clips, install a piece of plywood the same size of the curtain's frame onto the thin wood paneling then screw the frame directly into that.
