we picked up our new 2015 XLR last April in Ohio. They told us already to go and did a walk through. Hadn't owned a camper for at least 20yrs and is wasn't no 42ft 5th wheel, lol. Anyway, we had a two day drive back to Texas. They said they filled the water tank, NOT. Wife not to happy when I got a hot shower the first night and she didn't as we ran out of water at a rest stop. No water hoses or sewer lines so that was our next stop at Walmart. If you have a generator make sure to check that the hose from the extra fill tank will reach the generator tank. We ran out of fuel in the generator late one nite and the hose was about 4inches to short. Could just see someone at the plant laughing his ass off. Got back to texas and camping world has been glad to see me every time I walk through the door. lol. Getting everything you need is an on going project.

A way to change a tire if need be. Your TV jack may not work and the lugs may be a different size. I use a trailer aid plus and an impact wrench with a torque stick socket. Be sure to have a torque wrench with you. The wheels will need to be re-torqued frequently during the first several hundred miles.

PH - the expandable hose from TV is not for potable water. I don't even think it's recommend for watering plants.
We only use it for draining the grey water or washing the trailer.
