PDI went without drama. Only two issues:
1. I guess when the lot monkey did the afore-mentioned damage, it knocked the rubber plug out of the bumper. They replaced it. Since we don't plan on using the bumper storage I'll probably put a couple screws thru the bumper and into the rubber plugs so we don't lose them. I was thinking about just throwing them in the garage, but the do give a more finished look...
2. The refrigerator door travel latch wouldn't slide. The tech got it to work by holding the refer door handle at just the right angle... I'll look into it later and see if I can figure out what's wrong. Even with the refer door open the lock doesn't want to slide.
Dealer installed and set up the WDH for us, but I'll redo it. Chains are angled (trailer frame brackets aren't in the right position), and I tightened up the chains a link at our first stop. I'll make all the proper measurements when I redo it.
At that first stop during the walk-around I realized the dealer hadn't put the temp license on. I called them, and they ran one out to use while we were eating lunch. That first stop just happed to be at a gas station with a couple fast-food options, so we ate in the camper (slide in) while we waited for the tag.
I read somewhere where someone lost their propane tank cover. I guess like most there wasn't really anything holding ours on except gravity and friction. Before we left the dealership I pulled the cover off and put it in the camper. Then yesterday I drilled a couple small holes in the bottom so I can run a small bungie under the tank supports. May be unnecessary, but gives me one less thing to worry about. My first mod!
We also lost the battery box belt along the way. I put a bungie over it.
We threw all our camping stuff and linens in, and have reservations at Blanco State Park Thursday!
If you order stuff from Amazon they have that battery box strap. Only $4 and change of course you need to spend $49 now for free shipping. With new camper you should cover that. Bungee cord works but just in case you want the finished look.
Congrats on your new camper and enjoy.
