need a list of what to check for on pick-up FE 320BHDS

Well - we went completely crazy and struck a deal on a Freedom Express 320 BHDS. Wife loves the floorplan. Supposed to pick up Wednesday, 6.5 hours from home.

Need a good list of what to check when we pick it up.

If it is electric, turn it on, make sure it works. TV, radio, slide, awning, electric water pump, air conditioner, refrigerator, microwave, hot water heater electrical side, power jack, stabilizer jacks (front and rear) and all lights external and internal. When working the radio and tv, raise the antenna make sure you get reception. Make sure the antenna signal amplifier works for the tv. Check all doors for alignment including the entrance and cabinet doors. Check the plumbing. See if they can get water so you can flush the toilet run the spigots to make sure there are no leaks. You can also check all the propane devices which include the refrigerator, furnace, stove and hot water heater if you have water. Make sure all your locks work with your keys, open and shut all external compartments. Check general quality with all seals and look for any type of water damage which could be a sign of a leak. I would even cycle the couch and table into a bed to make sure one you know how and two that it works. That should be a good start. Good luck!

Here's a checklist that I use (stolen from many different sources). You can obviously ignore the stuff for hybrids, but the rest of it should help.

PDI Checklist


Congrats on the new camper!!

Make sure your bedroom escape window has a locking mechanism.
