Excited to be getting our new camper tomorrow. I hope the PDI goes well and we have no problems.

Go through that camper with a serious eye. Don't let them push you and pull and check everything. Hook up water check gas heat and electric. Run the water pump fill fresh water tank and pump water. Look at roof real good. Take off screwed down panels. I took the panels off below our sink where the heater is and found balled up newspaper between the wall and heater exhaust. Nice fire starter. Campers are like new homes. All kinds of junk gets hidden behind the walls and closed spaces.
Good luck to you. Bring your tools to the walk through.
Pick up some red sticky tape to mark items for repair or replacement. I made them hook the water and the kitchen facet broke as I turned on the tap. "Okay fix this"

Take your time and go over the unit REAL GOOD. Check everything out to make sure it works.
Take a pdi check list with you, heres one. Forest River Forums - Downloads - PDI Checklist
If you having the dealer set up a wdh, make sure they do it right. TT and truck level as possible before you leave. My dealer is O for 2 on setting them up right, had to do it myself.

Congrats and enjoy!

Platokidd is correct. My dealer set up my Equilizer 1200 for me. Bless them. When I got home in thought something looked odd. The best distance was 32" from the center of the ball to the a frame brackets with no shorter than like.. .29". They attached them around 25" because it was the easiest place to get to. So...outcome my tools and I read the directions and did it correct. Pulled a lot better.

It's home! Only had a couple problems. The transport driver broke a door to the charging station using the slide. We found a tear in the fabric on one of the shiver rockers. But all will get fixed. Looking forward to our first trip.
