Help Needed - Anything missing from PDI List?

Finally pick up the new 2016 Windjammer 3029 on Thursday. Spent time perusing all the various PDI walk through threads and PDI checklists. Consolidated them into my own PDI checklist.

If anyone has time to review the list - would love to get opinions on anything I may have left out.

Any Windjammer owners - anything you have discovered that you wish you would have checked in your walk through? If so, please let me know.

Thanks for your help.

Steve

To complete that list you better give yourself at least ten hours and make sure you have a place to dump your full tanks.

Your list is definitely comprehensive, but a tad excessive for me. I was able to check all of these things out over a two-day period while I camped about three miles away from my dealer. I went over several of the things you list during my PDI and found nothing wrong. I have had my Windjammer 3029W for a month now and I have still found nothing wrong.

I think you will find your Windjammer exceeds your expectations and you are going to be very happy with it.

Good luck and congratulations.

Bruce

Thanks for the feedback Bruce. Since I live in NC and the dealer is in Ohio I am going a little overboard. Don't want to make the 600 mile roundtrip if I can avoid it. I also plan on camping by the dealer (Indian Lake State Campground) for two nights to check things out.

Comprehensive list. To take advantage of all that prep work, do not sign paperwork until it is the way you want it. Once the dealer gets your $ things get corrected much slower.

Our salesman suggested we video the walk through. Once you start setting up, you can replay the parts you may have forgotten.

⬆️ This

Video is a good idea. I took a post it pad with me and stuck notes all over the inside. Video helped with the outside.

Thanks for the feedback. Agree with not paying till fixed. And the video and post it notes are both great ideas I had not considered.

Have them check the hot water bypass valves and show you how they work. First trip out in mine and I was scrambling to figure out why I didn't have hot water. The bypass valves were turned wrong and allowing hot and cold water to mix together.

Great list Steve. I just purchased my 2016 Columbus 320RL 2 days ago and have not been able to test unit near dealer. The fumes were too strong that the PDI alone made me sick and had to cancel the 2 nights we had planned to spend testing unit out. Have had the unit on my driveway for 2 days with all windows open and fantastic fans going. This morning added two portable fans blowing out as well to speed things along. Planning to test RV this weekend and hopefully all will be fine.

This very comprehensive list will assist me in the process as well. Thank you!

Robert

We love our 2015 3039W and live up near your dealership. We are lucky as we purchased ours from Arbogast RV just a mile from our house, the one not on wheels.
Be sure to check the fold out bed. Our cover had a small tear. I think the dealer did it when unpacking it. Also the radio antenna wasn't connected correctly. Just little things as otherwise the W has been great and we have camped over 50 days in it already.
Enjoy your trip to Ohio!
