New owner of 2008 Roo 21SS

Hello everyone, This Friday my family and I will be taking delivery of your 2008 Roo 21SS. This is your first actual camper besides tents. As a kid we always had popups, now that I am older I chose a hard sided version. Basically I need a little information from you all. Are there any particular things that I should really pay attention to during the walk around inspection at the dealership. I have already looked it over, but seeing that this is my first Roo ever, I thought that someone experienced might have me check something that the untrained eye won't see. Good or bad please let me know. I am buying it used but it still looks and smells brand new. Thanks everyone.

make sure they show you how to set up the trailer and tent ends. run the slide out and in. pressurize the plumbing and run the water in all the faucets/shower/toilet.
turn on the Concertone stereo and fool with the features. they are notorious for not working.
make sure the battery is fully charged.
run the furnace and a/c with the thermostat, fridge(propane and electric settings), water heater(same as fridge), bunk fans, heated mattresses, water pump, Fantastic Fan.

to the forum. After you check everything as stated above inspect the tires and wheels as well, look under the frame. If it all looks good and you have good fellings about it then you are in business....enjoy.

Thanks for all the input so far. About how long should the inspection take, I'm thinking at least a couple hours?

If you even see a Concertone, ask them to swap it out now...better now than later cuz they are pieces of s**t. FR seems to be a great company with quality products, but that Concertone nonsense is off the hook !!
