She's home!

So we picked up our 2017 32ds yesterday - walk through went well. Can't say enough how valuable this forum was knowing what to look for and questions to ask! Everything looked to be in good working order. We did find a gouge in the dash that I don't think was there when we test drove? And also a big one in passenger side mirror. The lot here is pretty tight. Looks like maybe they caught the gate or something. As for the dash????? Anyway they have replacements for both on the way. Hubby had some requests on the outside and they did it all while we were finishing up - excited to get on the road - won't be for a couple of weeks- meanwhile we added a plug at the house and parked this sucker in our driveway. It's not a huge space lol but it's here so we can work on getting it loaded w all the essentials. Will have more permanent storage at his work. He went and exchanged the batteries before even bringing it home. Also have solar panels on order and a few other upgrades mentioned on here! Thanks again to everyone being so open and taking time to share not only the problems but the good stuff too - being completely new to the RV world it's helped us to at least feel a little more prepared!

NICE! May you have nothing but pleasant travels and joy in it. And yes, I have garnered a LOT of valuable information from the forum. And...some perhaps not so valuable, but still fun!

Welcome to the FR3 fold. Be safe and have many adventures in your new rig. Don't get discouraged if you find things along the way. It's normal after you stay in it for awhile. Keep it between the ditches.

Rock on! Make sure after you get it loaded down to hit the scales so you know what sort of air pressure to run in your tires based on the tire load tables. Also, get an alignment if the dealer hasn't done so already. The factory is "supposed" to have them aligned, but I doubt they are. You'll be chewing up those expensive tires after a couple thousand miles. Cheap insurance for around $100. And do the CHF before you hit the open road. Way too easy to pass up. Congrats and see you around.
