Congrats & welcome to "the club".
Can't speak to your particular coach and since you've already owned a 5'er, you prolly know about much stuff already. Would suggest on your PDI you get to see and check the levelers in action and insure no leaks in lines...also have them show you where the breaker for them is located and how to set.
Bring a DVD and test it on the TV's to insure all the hookup wires are done right.
I assume you will have the 110V fridge so probably will have FOUR 6V deep cycle batteries... you might want to check those to insure they are new and charged and in good shape. Make sure they are not Dual Purpose 12V batts.
There's several good examples of PDI checklists here on the forum if you want to be thorough and I enclose the one I used as a supplement for my own lack of experience some of which was inspired by noting the problems other G'town owners reported here! Good luck with it all.

Congratulations. I hope you are as happy with yours as we are with the new 378 TS XL We bought last July. We have had only minor problems and love the coach. We moved up from a 2004 Class C. Check Lowes they have nice runners and area rugs that work well. We have had no problems with the tile at all. That was one of the reasons we bought the unit.

A year ago, we bought a 2015 GT 364TS with the same F53 chassis as yours. Before PDI, we arrived two hours early and asked that we just be given time to look over the vehicle on our own before the PDI. We told them we'd let them know when we were done and ready for the formal PDI. That gave us time to look it over closely at our pace. (Finding something on the spot gives you the leverage to insist it be fixed before driving it off the lot.) We also filmed the PDI, which didn't seem to bother the dealer. The guy doing it seemed like he just wanted to get it over with. So who conducts it with you can be important. Welcome to a new adventure!

Congratulations on your purchase. We own a 2013 377TS. If your 2015 model comes with a dinette that is supposed to turn into a bed, be sure to check it to make sure the cushions fit. On ours, the back cushions of the dinette would not cover the entire dinette table when pushed down to make a bed. As it turned out a middle cushion was missing, and looking on this forum I discovered a whole lot of other people had the same issue. In my case FR paid for a new cushion to be made so all ended up well.
