Welcome.
The best suggestion I can give you is get out and enjoy your new Columbus!
What are you towing it with?

I do suggest performing a thorough pre delivery service & walk around with a knowledgeable person from your dealer. We had the salesman AND a technician do ours.
Take notes, take pictures, ask questions, and operate EVERYTHING. That includes all faucets (including inside & outside), the TV & stereo (inside & outside), all the light switches, all kitchen appliances, BOTH A/Cs, operate the slides a few times each, and make sure your 3 LP tanks are full.
I ended up labeling the switches with a label maker as there are so many.
Columbus makes a beautiful rig, we really liked the 365RL, but it was a bit too much for my 2500.
Once you get finished with the PDS, go enjoy it!

Speaking of which do like the original Columbus did... Discover America, by the way America is a continent and includes Canada

Just saw a Columbus for the first time the other day.... wow, what a great unit. Congrats, must be very excited.
