Picking TT up tomorrow

Well it is finally time to pick up the new 2702SS and the DW and I are making the treck to bring her home. We have a nice 6 hour ride ahead of us and I know that I will counting every mile. We are planning to stay in a hotel over night and our appointment is for 11AM on Thursday. The dealer still will have to install a new tv in the living room and install the equalizer hitch i am bring up. I figure the DW and I would drop that stuff off around 9AM when they open to get that done and walk around and look at all the other untis to kill time. Then after the PDI we are off and running back home to load everythign up.

If anyone has any words of advise i would greatly appreciate them.

ask questions ask questions ask questions
fill all switches and ask what they do if not sure .
ask where water filter and water pump are.
ask where hw heater by pass is.
ask where all the manual options are incase of power outage . including the tool to do it.
for the slide/s awning if so equipped with a power one.
have them show where the fuse panel is.
thats a good start even if your a veteran camper.

Congratulations John. I know it's been a little longer than you thought.

The only thing I suggest is to bring a torque wrench for your trip home. The wheel lugs and your new Equal-I-zer will need to be tightened in the first few hundred miles.

Enjoy your trip and new RV!

But please be careful about which units on the lot you check out while killing time. I made the mistake of checking out another unit which got the wheels turning in my head.

Counting down the hour till we leave. Thanks for all the well wishes and the great advise. I have a PDI list loaded in my iPad that is very detailed ( the mechanic and salesman are going to hate me ), I also will be video taping all of the important parts of the walk thru. I loaded the truck last night with all my tools and safety gear and just have to load the new tv this morning. I will be sure to post picks as soon as I can.
