Thanks Nevada and Cookin. My best friend owns the garage that does all my local dealer's inspections for all the RVs they order in (and he's a part-time Rv guy in the summer too). I told him to go through it with a fine tooth comb when it comes in lol! I will do the same as well. My real concern is that this floor plan doesn't go into production until January, so I'm hoping the first models rolling off the assembly line won't be full of "bugs" that haven't been worked out. I guess that's another good reason to be thorough on my inspection!

I know I'm not saying anything that everybody else in this forum hasn't already said, but I'm going to say it anyway. When you go to pick up your rig, have a WRITTEN check list and plenty of time on your hands. Also go in with the knowledge that when you leave you're not going to have your rig, only a piece of paper with all the things that the dealership will have to fix. And hopefully when you get back the second time you'll be able to pick it up in perfect condition. I will suggest that when you pick it up on your second trip hopefully, you take it out for a night of boondocking at a actual rv Park so that you can again check and inspect everything and then if it's still not right return it to the dealership. I cannot emphasize having a WRITTEN inspection sheet which you can find all over the Internet with you and utilizing it fully

That's really good advice! Thanks. Especially the point about be prepared to not take the rv home after the inspection. I never thought of it in that way, but if I mentally go to the inspection, assuming I'm Not taking it home, I won't overlook or go easy on some of the small imperfections!
Great tip, thanks.

The PDI I found and used online was like 8 pages. Be thorough.

Be sure to bring some basic tools with you as well. I recommend:

Flashlight
Screw driver
IR Thermometer (to check hot water temp, furnace output, AC output, fridge/freezer operation)
Multi Meter
AC Receptacle Tester
Air Pressure Guage
Box of matches if needed to test stove/grill

Hope that helps!

Don't forget the iPad or camera to video some or all operation sequence of anything you think may not remember later, if you're a newbie it can be overwhelming & you will forget later.
