New owner from Washington

Hi all,
We just pulled the trigger on a new Wildcat Maxx 295rsx.
We take delivery on Wednesday and really look forward to it.
Apart from slide seal issues, are there any other things I need to pay extra attention to on our walkthrough?

Welcome to the site from SW Idaho.

If you have not please go to the sites Library and print out a couple of copies of the PDI list.

Forest River Forums - Downloads

Look your whole unit over because you are the last inspector, make sure EVERYTHING works and that you understand how everything works.

Have them show you where the water heater bypass valves are, low point drains, sofa bed setup, antenna booster switch.

Does the micro work?
Put a cup of water inside and see if it gets hot, or you could pop a bag of pop corn.

Welcome from Camano Island!

yes, the Wildcat Maxx is one of the few FR brands NOT made in Indiana.
having them made in Oregon, helps the brand compete pricewise with the Midwest, for us West Coasters.

wish they made a 5th wheel like the Montana High Country 293RK floorplan.

Welcome from Everett! One word of advise make sure that any items that need to be fixed that are found during the PDI gets written up, they can not argue if it is in writing.
