Getting ready to sign

My wife and I are picking up our new 5ver on Wednesday. Any last minute things I need to ask or look for? Thanks!

Welcome aboard and congrats on your new to be 5ver! Which unit did you get?

Ask for taking delivery - take notes & ask questions. Check everything out and note anything that needs fixing or touching up.

Other than loading it up, check the tires and at first opportunity get it across the scales. You will be surprised how heavy it is.

Congrats on the new FL!!! We took ownership of ours in April. Its A great unit!. We have had A few minor problems, but nothing really major. The one important thing I would like to suggest is dont rely on those self adjusting brakes. You most likely will have to adjust them after A couple hundred miles. Then you should be fine. Thats what I found with ours. Does your FL have the second AC up front? If you have any questions feel free to PM me as I have figured out most all the tricks to ours.

Happy Camping!!!!
