Help Needed - Anything missing from PDI List?

Aggie90 - have added the bypass valve check to the list.

Medic - did not even think about the fumes being bad. Hope ours is already aired out.

MCTroy - thanks for the advice. It seems most windjammer owners did not find much. Walk through starts in 2 hours and I feel like a kid Christmas morning. Been 6 years since we sold our last RV.

What fumes would be that bad? Our 2010 didn't have them, had a new smell

We probably should have not only lit the oven but let it get to temp. We would have noticed what turned out to be a bad pilot light assembly from suburban. Our scare light on the left side of the trailer was mounted too close to the rear and the big slide contacted it when it was closed and broke out the back 2" of the housing and had to be replaced.
Our dealer had an additional DVD of the PDI premade which was a good review. Get a good explanation of the black tank rinser. It's not a flusher! See that the cranks fit the slide out manual retractors. Make sure you see where the pin comes out and how to retract the awning manually just in case. I shored up the floor of the shower with some additional foam, because it was spongy and not supported.
Overall we really like ours

Help Needed - Anything missing from PDI List?

Update
Walk through went ok. Biggest issue was our Maxxair fans did not get installed. Ended up working out as unit had the remote controlled fantastic fans already installed so did not have to pay extra. I just had them add the Maxairr covers to each.

Dealer needed to fix a few minor problems:
- Water pump would not shut off - adjusted the pump and it shuts off a few seconds after water is turned off
- seal on one window was not set right- they fixed it
- small hole in roof right by fan. Looked like a screw or drill bit fell and made hole. Sealed it up with Dicor.

That was it. We were very impressed with RV Wholesalers walk through process. Allowed us to do everything on checklist - full walk through and fixes took about 4 hours. Also had them install the equalizer hitch. Much easier to use then my old Reese dual cam.

We are now at Indian Lake campground. 1st night went great. Plenty of room for all of our camp gear and almost everything worked great. Only problem was I could not get the water heated with the electric heater. Made sure water was in heater and heater turned on but no heat. Switched it off and put on propane and heated up quickly. So will call dealer this morning and see if they can fix it.

So at this point my expectations have been exceeded. Let's hope it continues.

Steve and Rhonda

So searched the forums on electric water heater issues. One poster suggested it may be unplugged. Called my salesman Mitch at RVWholesalers and he talked to service guys who suggested the same thing. So got in water heater cabinet and they were right. Just had to plug it in. A fix I can do. So enjoyed a wonderful day and another night in our new windjammer. At this time I am a happy camper.

Steve.
