There is a PDI check list here on this forum. Look under the Columbus forum and you should find it.. We used it when we picked up our 320RS and we also spent two days at the dealer going through everything on the list plus just trying everything out that we could. Knowing we only had a 30 amp hook up at the dealer but we tried what we could. take you time with you PDI. We spent almost 4 hours with our PDI guy. He really new the rig.

Try this link
Forest River Forums - Downloads - PDI Checklist

Click on blue download file button.

This list is extensive so warn your dealer if you are going to use it. Average PDI for 5th wheel is 2 hours. This list will take WAY longer than 2 hours to go through. I did not use this list. I simply went room by room and tried everything out that I could.

Good idea to hook up water and electricity at PDI and try out all functions. Then try out all functions that should work on battery only. Be advised that some applicances that run on 120VAC wont run on 12 volt battery. DVD, TV, microwave, air conditioner, etc. Ask your dealer.

Also I'd just run the shower against the door for 5 minutes or so, on the pump, at the dealer. Make them use their caulk to seal that door track (or install it correctly if it's still reversed), then they can vacuum out the heat vent that will fill up with water.

Basically, anything you can see and touch...try it out! Take your time and don't let your Dealer try to rush you through it (a good dealer won't try that), at least 2hrs will be needed maybe more with how many items you try out.
Good luck and enjoy

If your fridge is in a slide room, make sure it works on gas with the slide in or out.

Congrats, HD, on making it through the wait. We are already two weeks late with ours according to the salesman word at order (but we knew he was just dreaming). Hope it is fun!
