In 2 weeks we're picking up our new 831BHDS

Woo Hoo!

So, can I get tips/pointers on what to check for in the demo?

The dealership is over 150 miles away from my house, so I think it's best to make sure everything works, but are there known 'bugs'?

Go to the 'Library' above and download a PDI checklist for starters.

You should plan on staying at a camp ground closing the dealer for the weekend. Should any issues arise over the weekend, your close enough to take care of it. There should be a link on one of these topics for the walk through of your camper. Print it out and follow it. Also read a bunch of messages from other owners (keep n open mind) as to what they found and did about it. Good luck.

Congratulations on the new RV. My suggestion would be since you live so far away, see if they will put you up in a camp ground close by for a night or two to make sure everything works and that you are a happy camper

Picked her up yesterday and all went well!

Pulls with no issue with my TV

One thing I forgot to ask, how do you put the slides in manually and the awnings?

Have a look by the entry step and outside kitchen for two grommet where the manual handle will fit. You should have a manual handle usually in the couch drawer. For your awnings you should have instruction sheets for them.
