    They said it was all working and anything that develops they will fix. Wow what a misrepresentation!!!!
    My Frig failed 5 times spoiled food. They won’t fix it they cannot find out why. The Truma heat won’t reach through out the rig it is cold. They cannot fix that so I am having to purchase a new Furnace and water heater and Frig 😞 it’s been in the shop 4 times 3 to 4 weeks at a time so 4 months out of 12 was in service. They showed me things were working but they certainly didn’t stay that way.
    Forest River Sunseeker. The Ford part is wonderful. $89k later I have to spend more.

    Thanks for this! We’re picking up a new toyhauler/trailer on Tuesday and know with our last camper there were things missed.

    Totally agree! We had a loose connection on the stove and could smell the gas long after we turned off the burner! 😮 Dealer resolved, we retested. All good now. These steps PAY OFF!

    Very good advice. I've been trying to get my 2018 Jayco Eagle repaired under warranty for the past 11 months has been a nightmare. They turn down everything. and if you don't like it. Try to sue them LOL They have lots more attorneys than you can afford. Tell the salesman that you want to be left alone in the rv for a couple of hours. Then give him the list of what you found wrong, and tell him you'll take delivery AFTER EVERYTHING IS FIXED. He won't like it. But i guaranty that he wasn't going to add you to his Christmas card mailing list anyway…..

    Until now, I had done pdi myself, and got lucky enough. Last one I missed a bad leak in shower and I had to call a mobile mechanic to fix it. This time I'm g going "half" full time, so I'm paying an inspector. I think the almost 500 for a 50k RV, is with it,.

    I had 4 Goodyear Marathons RV tires bow out on me. So Goodyear is not a tire I buy for my rig. Thought you would want to know.

    OMG never thought about this. The wife and I are getting ready to move into an RV full-time and we are picking it up out of state and it would suck if we had no place to live.

    Great video! As a newbie I assumed it should all be checked and guaranteed before we pick it up. Crazy!

    Thank you!

    I really enjoyed your video, thank you. BUT, I have an issue…We live in Canada, after owning used trailers and tired of dealing with leakage brought on by other owners, we decided to splurge and buy a brand new trailer so if it has a leak, it will be on us but never if I have anything to do about it. I consider myself as anal as you now. We bought the trailer in November, looked at it in the show room. Decided to take advantage of their storage yard and leave it with them till we pick it up May 4th. I just did my walkthrough this past Monday on April 15th. Made a list of some little things but my red flag was in two spots. Water has wet the dinette cushions on one side and also the sofa cushions which is beside the dinette. (Dinette and sofa are in slideout). I am betting the window at the dinette is not sealed properly. What tipped me off to investigate this was the fact the wood trim underneath the bench seat of the dinette was black in one corner. It has obviously been sitting wet for some time. Likely, as soon as they moved the trailer to the storage yard. There was still some puddles of water sitting on the floor below the cushions of the sofa. THEN, I picked up on a little tiny bit of wall paper sticking out along the floor in the bedroom. Ran my fingers over it, put on the reading glasses, used my flashlight and found a faint sweat of water sitting there at the edge of the paper and floor. Looked outside at the wall but there is nothing on the wall (except a window). No sign of swelling. So, again maybe another window or from the roof. My concern here is, the cushions will dry, the floor can be wiped, the wood can be replaced that is now black, the windows can be better caulked and sealed, a roof leak can be repaired, IF, they find the proper source BUT, there is now water in my walls. Who knows how long it will take for that to show up? How can they fix water that has leaked into the walls? Or the floors?? I am peeved, disappointed, disheartened. And, I haven't even drove off with it.
