I'm hoping the tech who does it knows the rig well enough to answer some specific questions. For example mine has the little entertainment center hookup with a coax connector outside the unit. I'm assuming that is connected internally to something but don't know if it's to the external cable connector on the other side, to the antenna, etc. I'm going to drive the guy crazy but for the money I'm paying I want all my questions answered

I agree! Get as much as you can from the pdi.

We even went so far as to bring a bag of microwave popcorn to try. Dealer probably thought we were nuts but we found out that the microwave worked that way 😃

Those all seem like really good ideas. I think you have just created my to-do list lol! Thanks and I may have some questions when I get to them if you're up for it

Congrats on your purchase! Just be sure to check everything with a fine tooth comb, all wall plugs, operate all switches, etc. If you have full body paint check it closely as ours had some very deep scratches on a compartment door. Our Forester 3011 came in and when we went up to look at it found a few things that were not done on the special order request with one item bad enough to cause us to refuse the unit.

Wow....good suggestions! Thanks I guess it's like doing a home inspection when you're buying a new one...

The only issue is where you connect the electric the hinge on the door is really fragile unless they changed it they break really easy. I super glued it but ever time I opened it would break again. Forest River is replacing it I hope the hinge is better.

Just finished my walk thru and only a couple issues...some paint chips outside, Knicks in the wood cabinetry. Most serious thing we found was the plate for the outside outlet is cracked...looks horrible but still works. They had to order it because it's apparently a non standard plate. I leave on my virgin trip with this thing in the morning so wish me luck!
