Pick up our Roo 233s on Friday!

Is there anything specific we should be asking during the orientation? We are new to travel trailers!

This is what we found wrong on our 233S when we picked it up this month. Just double check.
Caulk broke around all bed frames on the exterior
Wall next the fridge and side bed had a huge gap from a screw being over tighten
Latch on the slide out drawer under the dinette didn't line up so it was very easy to open
One of the snaps that hold the bed to the door in travel was broke
Good luck!!!!! And happy camping!!!

Check that the foam for all 3 beds go slighly beyond the door and create a proper seal. They tried to fix ours with 2 way tape and ended up ordering all new seals for the beds.

Check the leg for the sofa bed. We found when we flipped ours over it was 3 inches short of touching the floor. They replaced it while we were finishing our pdi.

We had a similar issue with the drawer under the dinette but I relocated the backet when we got home as that is when the DW noticed it.

The last odd one we encoutered was that the polarity was reverse on one of our bunk end fans. So grab one of the fans and try it in the rca plug for each bed (and make sure the fan blows the air out the right way).

Take your time. In all the exictement of getting the new HTT you can miss something small and have to take her back to the dealer for something they can do while you are there. The pdi check list here is great!!!

less the 2 weeks will we are off camping. Can't wait!!!!

Hope all goes well tomorrow. Don't let them rush you thru the PDI. Anything you don't understand ask them again. Post some pics when you can.

Congratulations. It's been just over a year since we bought our Roo and it's farm from being over with the excitement. Being your first Trailer, It's hard to know really what to look for, but in my opinion, The Roo is a great choice. We started with a popup Rockwood HW so we generally knew what we wanted.

Carefully look at everything and use your best judgement as to whether it's missing something or not. Check the stove for all it's gromets. (the rubber stoppers on each corner) make sure you ask if you are not sure how to do something. Have them show you how to open and close everything and don't be afraid to ask questions. You will find yourself reading about everything in the trailer anyway, but might as well have someone show you. Make sure all the radio speakers work. Ask about using the AC and heater. Open the slide out and extend the awning. Have them show you how to change the water filter and how to winterize the trailer. It's cheep and easy as heck to do it yourself.

No matter how much you think you know about the trailer when you leave, your wrong I'm still finding out cool stuff a year later.

Have fun!!! Feel free to ask me questions. there are several of us who have the Roo models. I have the 2013 233s and I'm sure it's not far off from what you have.
