I have never bought a trailer where I found all the defects during a PDI. I don't waste a lot of time doing one. I check the major systems and spend a few minutes looking for major flaws and I'm on my way. There will always be small things that need attention and you can usually fix them yourself.

Make sure you pay attention to fit and finish of all moldings and other trim item . Dealer had to remove and recut and fix sloppy putty attempts before we would accept trailer . Get up on roof and do a thorough inspection . All major system were good to go , but the trim and sloppy attempts to make it fit werent going to cut it . We got our silverback 37 BH in April and the last part for a jacknife bed yesterday .so overall we r very happy with it

DW does not want a dishwasher but if something should happen to DW then the nineteen year old new DW might not want to wash dishes

That is what DW stands for, right? DishWasher??

Cedar Creek PDI

I bought my 36CKTS this January. My first RV. I needed the PDI because I knew nothing. A couple minor things found at PDI which were corrected on the spot. Only one major thing, when using hydraulics breaker would trip. First, I never would have found the breaker in a year of looking. Second, the wrong breaker was installed (which was the reason it tripped) fixed on the spot.

Out on the road, I realized the storm window for the front door not included. Dealer gave me a hard time (Chesaco in Maryland). Called Cedar Creek factor, inserts sent out same day, no charge. They were great to work with, including returning my call.

check fit and finish

besides trying out everything when we did our PDI we looked at the fit and finish of the unit (inside cabinets line up, screws/staples inserted correctly/nicely, wire looming tidy - that sort of thing). I didn't know much about trailers but figured that if the things we could see were a mess then what about what we couldn't see (underbelly, plumbing/wiring inside walls, etc.)? We turned down a couple of tt's for these reasons and are happy with what we finally bought, haven't had too many problems (knock wood) cincia
