So the question is..... What are the key systems we should learn as well as test during the walk through that cause folks the most angst once they get home???
No one seems to have grabbed this so let me try:
All major dependency systems - meaning systems that need something else to work before they will - so
Generator: start, charge. It should take over when shore power is disconnected
Inverter powers 110V
Plumbing - hot water, water pump, obvious leaks in cabinets if there is water in the tank. Other wise get some put in. You only need a few gallons.
Main door fit
Black and Grey water slide valves. Dealer may have prepped the Black water so be sure to check before you pull the valve
All lights and switches
Precision Systems control access
OTA antenna and TV/matrix interface
Propane furnace ignition, hot water and cooker
Fridge cooling (take a thermometer and put it in the fridge when you start)
Tire pressures (take a gauge with you)
Truck fluid levels and warning lights off
Exterior truck switched or powered lights
Storage doors all latch securely
Step operation - no hesitation
If you read the manuals for these systems before you arrive, the dealer can stand by while you run the tests and then address any faults that turn up. The dealer should have done all this before asking you to take delivery but with so many different types and perhaps a lack of enthusiasm some will be abbreviated so you need to do it yourself.
Have a Plan B if the coach fails and you need to leave it with the dealer for another day. Know what motels are in the area and accommodation availability. Dealer should provide transport.
