I got the sewer hose, power cable, and power adapter. That's it.

Thanks everyone! I pick it up yesterday and made the 7hr drive home. Did well. I got a box with a sewer hose, TP, brass regulator and some sanitizer for the tank. So not bad. They said they were going to de-winterize it but I looked and it still has the red anti-freeze in it. So I am going to do it myself. I looked in the manual and it seems pretty easy. Drain the holding tanks, fill fresh water tank, turn on pump, let it run through the pipes and then drain tanks.

I ran into this issue. There is a nozzle in the front by one of the tanks and beside the nozzle is a hose. I closed the nozzle and tried to fill the tank up and about 6 min later the minitor was still indicating that the tank is empty. Then the hose beside the nozzle started to expel water. So I thought it was overflowing or something so I opened the nozzle as in the picture to allow it to drain faster.

So what am I doing wrong? I can't seem to fill the fresh water tank without that hose part draining.

So addition to not being able to get the pump to work, or the sensors in the tank to work, the toilet is leaking. Possibly a broken toilet valve. Great!

*Gulp* I hate to ask at this point, but did you take a PDI checklist with you? [there is one in the library: Forest River Forums - Downloads - PDI Checklist]

When I read your previous post about not letting the dealer dewinterize I kinda winced and hoped that your plumbing system(s) would function correctly.

At this point, I recommend you call the dealer and explain the situation; be prepared to make a return trip to the dealer with TT in tow.

Please keep us posted

Yeah I didn't have time to go over it all as we live 7 hrs away and were leaving asap. I think the toilet issue is a simple fix that I can do which I am going to call and see if they allow it most likely is a metal strap that just needs to be replaced and tightened. And I think the pump issue might be because the valves are closed I believe. I'll keep you guys updated. Other than those 2 issues. The trailer is great.

That hose is suppose to be the over flow.

The Hose with the Valve is the Drain

Yeah, I filled it up for a good 8 minutes and kept checking the monitor. It kept saying empty. Even when the overflow was pouring water out.

I remember running across a thread last year about a situation like that. The overflow was causing a siphon effect and no water was staying in the tank. I don't remember what the resolution was though but I think it ultimately ended up going back to the dealer and having them fix it.

I think that is going to have to be the plan.
