Don't sign and pay until you are sure everything woeks like it should. Once they have your money, you will have no leverage to get things fixed in a timely manner. You are buying the unit to enjoy, not parked at a dealer waiting warranty repairs.

Like Flybob said DO NOT SIGN any paperwork until everything is fixed and/or working correctly. After you sign paperwork it is yours and now all repairs are warranty work. And now it is put in line to be fixed could be days or months.

I can't imagine any reputable...emphasis on reputable...dealer allowing a unit to leave their dealership without them having prepped it as you say. If they did, then they don't truly care about you as a customer.

Dealer Un-Prepped Unit

Check every light and switch, water pump, water heater, AC, heat pump if applicable, furnace, faucets, shower and outside shower or sprayer.

Sometimes they come to the dealer with no battery or not hooked up, so they have to do that too.

And hey - have fun and good luck!

Many travel trailers arrive at dealers without batteries, battery box, propane tanks and propane etc. These will all be additional expenses to you. This is not a problem if you are aware and figure them into the cost. Also units are usually pretty dirty inside and out so you will be doing some cleaning. If you do take the unit unprepped, Be sure to go up on the roof immediately and check for questionable caulking. There were about 8 spots on my TT that the dealer retouched ( slightly different color caulk) after receiving it.
