Picking up our 8265S tommorow!

We're picking up our Rockwood 8265S 5th wheel tommorow. What are some of the main things to check out before we take delivery? We're having two slide topper awnings installed by the dealer. I know I'm going to check these out and make sure they work properly and make sure the attaching screws were sealed properly. The dealer also promised to put on the quick release landing gear pins for free and install an electrical plug in the bed of my truck for free (I have been using the one next to my bumper hitch with our old 5th wheel). I'm really not too keen on them drilling holes in the bed of my truck. If there's any drilling done on my truck, I like to do it myself, like when I installed my 5th wheel hitch myself. But since it's free, I guess I'm going to let them do it.

Congrats. I would surely do a very thorough Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI).
Look over everything for operation, defects, etc. This is your first chance to get things right before signing/delivery. Ensure they show you how to work everything. Check every system, and don't be afraid to ask questions.
There are some good checklists out there you can study/bring with you. (there have been threads about it right here)
Good luck! Post some pics when you get her.

We mounted our trailer plug in the tool box we have behind the cab of our truck. that way when we trade trucks we only unwire the tool box and leave fewer holes in the truck. We come up threw the bottom of the tool box. It is easy to reach from the side also.
