We have owned a hybrid for the last several years. When we pick up our next rv... We will insist on checking out every system... At the dealership, before it leaves the lot, and before we pay.
We will also ask for a ladder, so we can look at the roof... I have heard lots of story's on here about roof seams etc. Not being calked, or separating right from the factory.
We will open all windows, check all zippers and snaps, open the hatches and make sure water lines are connected. Is there a water filter? is it there? Does the heat and air conditioner work.? Some hybrids have heated bunks... If yours does, check them to be sure they work. Also the clip on lights and fans.
Check the bathroom fan. Make sure the Velcro around the bunk ends is properly attached. Check the stereo. Check that the fridge switches to gas when on auto. Etc, etc.... Good idea to get down on the floor and check for any soft spots too....
I am now unapologetic about the level at which I want to inspect my new trailer... And the amount of time that this inspection will take.
This comes after too many run arounds in the past, with the dealership denying responsibility etc.
Enjoy your new purchase....
