PDI is before it is paid for. After payment and/or delivery it is now warranty work.

Looks like the PDI has already started from over a 1,000 miles away....dealer sent me a bunch of pictures and noticed this....



I won't be able to pick it up for almost 3 weeks....I wonder how he will handle this if I haven't paid. Make a large down payment?

Nope. Any defects found during PDI, or even before PDI during dealer prep that results in a dealer having to spend service time that he expects to be reimbursed for or replacement of parts, is handled by the exact same process as warranty work. Its warranty work no matter who owns the trailer, you or the dealer.

I have 19 pages of authorized "Forest River warranty repair claim forms" still sitting here for a unit I eventually refused to buy because of the many issues that proves so.

A nail in the tire would not be covered under the manufactures warranty, it there was a road hazard warranty it would be covered. This is one repair that the RV dealer is going to have to pay for. The nail is just another indicator of the China bombs that are being put on TT. If he had not caught the nail and had a blow out on the way home everyone would be blasting the poor quality of the tires on the TT. How many of the blow outs that people have on their new trailers are caused by poor driving by delivery drivers and not the tires.

Never Pay for the Unit until you are throughly satisfied with it, dont let them pressure you into paying befor completely satisfied, once you pay for it ,it is yours the delivery driver is just that. Good Luck

even a flat on a pdi is the dealers responsiblity, every thing that you can find wrong is theirs to repair before you pay for it.

I'm curious about the comment about the nail in the tire having anything to do with the brand of tires on the trailer. I'm pretty sure nails are not overly particular on what brand of tire they go into, as for the delivery driver hitting the nail, kind of hard to see a nail in the freeways. Just my $0.02.

Yeah, it is the off road package...15" tires and they lift the trailer a couple of inches.

Looking at the angle of the nail it might just go into the tread block. Who knows...I sent the dealer an email about.
