BTW, be sure to download a copy of the PDI Checklist from the Forum Library. Good luck with your new Roo!

There's a PDI for Hybrids sticky at the top of the Hybrids/Expandables section's home page.

Just be sure to take your time and not get rushed the first time you dump you tanks. It's easy to get distracted or sloppy and end up cleaning up a mess. Unfortunately we have probably all been there!

I have a 30 to 15 adapter but the dealer said that I get a temporary adapter with the unit too. They do supply a sewer hose but we will see about the quality of that.

I attempted to download the PDI list at the top of the HTT section but it said that I don't have permission to do that. Could it be because I'm viewing from my phone?

Really not much going on with a 183, no slides or anything too terribly complicated. I bought a Harbor Freight WDH for about $175 on sale out the door that has served me well with my 183, instead of waiting for day of pickup and having to purcahse an overpriced dealer WDH. I put it together using some common sense and when I arrived for pickup of my 183 the tech looked at it and said perfect... less work for me to do to get you out of here.

first thing I did with my 2014 183, was to crawl underneath and after seeing all the exposed wiring under there just waiting for some muffler or road alligator to tear or pull them from what they were hooked to (electric brakes)... I bought wire loom at Harbor Freight, all three sizes they sell, and some zip ties and dressed and covered the exposed wiring and tied it up tight out of harm's way.

Next thing on my list was to get into all of the out of the way places they cover up with light wood panels and remove them to give me more storage space, recognizing that some places had exposed wiring that I cleaned up and screwed down out of the way.

I added a lot of LED puck lights that activate when you open a door to give me better ability to see into dark cabinets, above the sink and the pantry and the rear storage area. I took out all incandescent lamps inside and outside porch lamp and put in LED bulbs. There were only a few.

I bought a tube of recommended caulk at the dealer and went over all body seams to be sure they were all sealed tight.

I looked at the stock tires, and for that light of a camper, I figured that they were NOT undersized and should give me at least a few years and many miles of service, BUT I did invest in a TPMS to monitor pressure and tire temps this year for added piece of mind.

After one year of ownership, I bought several rolls of Eternabond tape and sealed all roof seams, side gutters and front and back roof seams to help eliminate possible roof water access (search forum for eternabond). I would have done this the first year but did not know any better.

X2 on battery drill and dedicated socket for corner stabilizers.

Read thru Roo/Shamrock forums in your spare time and you will get many more ideas.

Good Luck and Great Camping...

I use 2 of these on each side then add homemade X-Chocks.
