I think he meant, check for the normal stuff like cracks.

My apologies for not being clear. The 3170ds has numerous reports of cracks around the drivers side slide (which may be hidden beneath the rubber). I think there are a number of posts on this forum around this particular model and these cracks.

Make sure he points out to you where the fuse is for the awning, its a small 15 AMP fuse. In the 2900 it was by the step when you walked in the living area. I blew 3 of them in one season. Saves a service call. Winterizing it is a bit tricky going through the water pump. Video record it if anything. Congrats!!

It's in my driveway! It's is normal for there to be a lot of movement in the steering wheel? And I see what you are all talking about with tire balancing/alignment - that needs to be corrected. Also, the guy doing the walk through didn't mention the black tank flush system and it was pouring rain and I forgot. So what do I need to know, any helpful links?

Congrats from a fellow SE Michigander! Where did you end up buying it from, if you don't mind me asking?
