Welcome from Ontario. Nothing is out when doing your PDI. Get them to turn everything on and to run them, everything needs to work before you hook up and leave. Videotape and write down everything they say during the walk around, you wont remember that critical instruction when you are gone. After that it is trial and error.

Ask the Ohio dealer if they have somewhere close by ( if not on their lot) that you can spend a night to try stuff out. Do not sign and/or leave until everything you are not willing to fix on your own is working. Most dealers will not do warranty work on a TT bought elsewhere. Remember you are buying this to enjoy not park on a dealers lot awaiting repairs.

X2 what FlyBob said -- you really should stay at or near the dealers at least one night (with full hookups) before you head home.

During your PDI, test everything and do not be afraid to video the tech demonstrating how to operate!

Test everything gas water a/c heat lights electric outlets. After you sign it is warranty work. Have everything repaired before you sign

Words of Wisdom

Never pull over for slow traffic going uphill, it's difficult to regain your power. Always properly level your RV before using the refrigerator. Be careful opening compartments after traveling...things can shift if not stored correctly. I make myself a checklist so I don't forget proper set up and takedown procedures. Good luck, enjoyed many years of RVing.

Congrats on your new purchase...The outside looks awfully similar to my 312qbud.....I am curious if the inside is the same....I am guessing it is....If so, I can't wait to see what mods you end up doing....might have to steal your ideas

Looks sharp! Lots of good feedback have already been provided and I'm sure more is to come as well.


Happy camping!
