Hours from PDI

Morning to all, just a couple of hours before PDI on our new Wildwood X lite 261 Bhxl! Any advice would be great.
Thanks

Do not let them rush you, make sure everything is actually checked example is the microwave bring some popcorn along to test it don't assume it works because the lights are on. Test the water heater on both gas and elect same with the frig. Plan 3 to 4 hours for a really go check. The time you take will pay off in the end.

Yeah, what he ^^^^^ said!

Check and make sure all faucets work, the furnace kicks on as well as the a/c, open and close all the slides (if any). Open and close all storage areas as well as work the locks, open and close all drawers and cabinets/wardrobes. Turn on/off all the lights, light the stove and oven (probably the only time oven will be lit) and make sure there are no propane leaks. Show how to use the TV and any dvd players, as well as the difference between the over-the-air antenna and the satellite feature.
Have them show you the converter and go in detail the difference between the 12v side and the 110v side - how to tell "quickly" if you blow a fuse or if a circuit breaker trips.
They should show you exactly how to hook up any tanks to be emptied and have them demonstrate the black tank flush.
These are just a few if what I consider the major issues most people will run across.
HERE is a PDI Checklist you can download. One other suggestion is to take a video (camera/cellphone) of the PDI.
Ultimately,

Just wanted to say thanks. It went great! Dealer went over everything pretty well. Only thing I didn't get into was the remotes my fault there. I Said I could figure them out with no problems. I might have been wrong there but will do some reading.

Thanks again
