Hello from Adams, NY

My wife and I are new to both this forum and rving. We purchased a leftover 2015 Wildcat 317RL 5er from Great Outdoors RV in Fulton NY and have not yet scheduled our PDI. We are waiting for some nicer weather to do it. Any advice on what to ask and look for is welcome. TV is a 2012 Ram 3500 Cummins Laramie Longhorn with ram box.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum this is a great place to get questions answered and find how others have done things. See if you can find an inspection sheet on line copy it and then you and the wife go over whats on the list so you understand what you are looking for before actually going to the dealer for the PDI. congrats on the new RV

Thanks again found a couple of good PDI check lists and printed them off. Now just need to lose the snow to pick it up. Really great site so far.

Hello from just down 81. Purchased my first RV in 2008 from The Great Outdoors. They have their detractors (ALL dealers do), but I have no complaints about the PDI nor about subsequent service work. Did they offer you free off season storage?
They have a decent store, but I suggest you get familiar with Wal-Mart which has a nice RV section for chemicals, cleaners, sewer hoses at much lower prices.
Adams is a terrific gateway for some terrific camping once Spring hits.
