My additional suggestions:

(1) Have a second person VIDEO the walk-through. Unless you are experienced with RV's, you will watch it many times! I know this was a helpful suggestion on my first one.
(2) Pay particular attention to the audio/video setup and how to change from one type of input to another (Over The Air to Cable to Satellite to DVD, etc.). It can be very confusing.
(3) Draining the holding tanks
(4) MUST SEE "RV, The Movie" staring Robin Williams

Picking up my 2017 3170DS tomorrow

Thanks to everyone!
Everything went well. Couple minor adjustment type issues were found and corrected. Dealer owes me a new sunshade in the bunkhouse. Other than that, for the moment, all seems well.
She drove like a dream on the 200 mile trip home. Gives me great confidence that the wife will be able to handle her on some long trips or in case of emergency.
Sitting in the driveway, looking at manuals (discovering those new things that make you go "oh, cool") with the kids across from me having breakfast at the dinette. Last night my brother and I amused the neighbors ...had the awning out, LED's on outside, TV on and beers in hand.

I would be remiss, I didn't thank all those who not only contributed to this thread but to the forum as a whole. I was well very prepared from shopping and selecting to the walk through and PDI. My walk through was less than comprehensive but fortunately I was able to get what I needed out of it because of what I've learned spending hours reading threads here. Great community of helpful people. Again... THANKS!

One thing I wish I had them go over on pdi was how to manually extend and retract the slides. If they don't know how then make sure not to take the rig to them if you are having any issues with the slides. My dealers service is so bad I'm sure they would have been no help.
