Just Ordered a 27HFS

So, I just ordered my 27HFS for pick up in April. We are super excited about it. I downloaded the PDI checklist, but, is there any particular items that we should check when we take delivery?

I noticed that it appears the 2014 now includes the 8" I beam Frame as standard, which used to only be available on the Extreme package, is this true?

i would verify you can add gas to the fuel storage tank. Often it doesn't have enough drop to even fill (it just pours back out). Some have not had the pump motor work that operates the fuel station either..
pretty sure it was remedied back in late 2012, but verify you have 4400lb axles or bigger, not 3500lb ones that they came with for a short time.

I have a 2011 f150 fx4 with the 5.0 v8 and it pulls the camper great with a 550cc arctic cat and a 250cc kawasaki four wheelers in the back. My truck gets about 9-10 mpg pulling around 65mph. I have a 2014 hfs and it had the 6" frame, no extreme weather package.
