New Palomino Solaire 317 BHSk

We signed the paperwork last Friday, and will be doing our walk through this Saturday. Being this is our first TT, what will be the best things to investigate (verify functionality). I have asked the salesman to leave the slides out to check for slide leaks.

Any help will be appreciated

Look in the Library for a file called the "PDI Checklist". It will run you through all of the systems (for instance, electrical on 120v and 12v, water on the tank and on city water, etc).

Welcome to the forum. ask them to explain how the tv works, the dvd , the outside speakers ( we played a movie to the neighborhood once!) the check list is good, look into every nook and cranny. We bought a 2013 Solaire 267 BHSK and we absolutely love it! headed to Gulf shores not this weekend but next weekend! Also Be sure to have them explain how the thermostat works for the heater and ac, i thought i knew and lo and behold you can run both at the same time!
