Congrats on your Rockwood 8280ws. Use Google or Bing, put in 'PDI Checklist' and you'll get links to several.

Bring a videocamera and record the pdi. You will want to watch it again later when you forget things. Basically if it opens, closes, turns on or moves have them show you how to do it (not just tell you) and then you return the demonstration. This includes hitching and unhitching. Take a really good look at how it should look hitched up. Have them open up the compartment where the water heater is and show you the water pump and water heater. Have them show you the winterization and dewinterization processes. Locate your low point drains. Check all caulking including crawling up on the roof and checking it out. open and check every drawer and cabinet carefully. Check heat and AC etc. Do NOT hand over any money until the pdi has been conducted to your satisfaction and anything in need of repair has been fixed. This may mean leaving and coming back for your trailer but better this than a headache trying to get a warranty repair done. Most of all have fun. Oh and if you have kids leave them home with a sitter or if you have to bring them bring entertainment for them while you do this.
