I pick up my new OR next Tuesday. I've been reading everything on here for weeks and love the forum. I took all the suggestions you all had for proper PDI and composed a checklist with them and have it attached here. While mine is for a TT, anyone can download this list and edit it and add for more items specific to your model or delete a few that do not apply. Thanks for all the comments..I feel so educated and ready for this purchase because of this family!! Will post pictures when we pick it up (as if no one has ever seen one)...HAHA.

This forum is great for gaining experience from other owners. Good luck on your purchase, hope the new trailer checks out and the PDI goes smoothly!

Thanks so much for the checklist. We are doing the PDI this next weekend on our new LF311FLR at the Menifee Richardson RV. This is exactly what I need (being a newbie to RV'ing).

Thanks for the PDI. I'm picking up RT288FLR tomorrow. I don't want to miss anything. I hate to feel rushed so with this list it will keep me on track. It hopefully will let the dealer know I mean business and not to slide things by me. I can't wait to start a new chapter in my life.

Thanks for the checklist. We will be picking up our UT2410RL in about 6 weeks.

A tip that I got from an experienced friend it to share your lit with the dealer before the walk through, so they know what you want to see.

I can't read the PDI check list. Can someone who can open it copy and paste the text into something else. It appears the content has been corrupted.
Thanks!!!

It appears that the file is corrupted. I was not able to open the file either and I installed MS Office last week.

Make sure all the windows open & close. Ask the dealer if they put water in the fresh water tank and check for leaks. They should be able to do a pressure test.
