Doh!! I forgot you were flying. Just buy some spare fuses at the dealership and ask the tech if the wheels need to be torqued (there would be a sticker near the axles if they do).

Have the Dealer put water in the clean water tank, while you are watching him and see how that works, over flow, lights on console, water pump, etc.
Make sure all faucets and toilet and shower works ok.

Get a lug wrench at the Dealer and make sure it works/fits... I have a 'fat' lug wrench from my old camper (did not work on new camper) and the lugs/rims need a 'slim' sided lug wrench. After 50 or so miles, stop and check all the tires lugs. Don't have to 'torque' them yet.... but 'torque' them when you get home.

Water pressure regulator. Sometimes the dealer throws one in but make sure you have one if connecting to the campground's water supply.

Until you get home I would use the onboard water only for washing and toilet. Consider it non-potable and use bottled water for drinking on this trip. Have fun and enjoy your new toy.

And make sure the TP is RV grade. You can probably purchase some at the dealer. If not, and you can't find a RV store, I'm told Angel Soft from WalMart is acceptable.

You can pretty much rough it for that trip home. The big thing we missed was sheets for the bed. That was not the most comfortable night lol.
