    All these test should take place at the dealership. not your driveway. Once you leave the dealership your screwed. and you know this! Honesty, is everything! treat others how you want to be treated. what comes around goes around.

    Great Video. To go from Newbie to competent RV'er will take some time and effort. But as they say, Enjoy the Ride….

    Make sure everything works and inspect your trailer before you take possession of it.

    Should you do this at the dealership during a walk through inspection before accepting it? Also, I heard to always check the outdoor bleed valve to make sure there is water in the hot water tank before turning it on. Is this true?

    He never checked the stove! Which you do before the hot water heater. The lines need to be bled!

    I couldn't make it through the whole video. It's a WATER HEATER. Not a hot water heater. Dam that just sounds dumb. You don't say cold beer cooler.

    Of course unless it's against the law to sleep in a RV in your yard, like it is where I live.

    Thank heavens my father was extremely mechanical and that I had the opportunity to watch him when I was a kid. I learned so much from him. And on that note there are so many people who do not belong out there on the road. They are just plain dangerous without logic.

    I know these are great things to do when you get your new toy home, but some of these things should be done at the dealership in case something goes wrong! Turn on the gas and check for leaks while you are there! Doing a full "walk around" before you leave would be a good idea, even if you can't do it all, such as water.
    My favorite power testing tool is a drill motor.
    The best advice are getting a surge protector, checking the seals (check the seals, check the seals, check the seals……..) and Sleep In It!!!

    I am looking for the checklists, but cannot find the link or .pdf. Can/will someone point me to the right location? Thank you in advance.

    OK…..so check my seals. But what am I looking for when I check the seals? How will I know if it’s good or bad? We have not bought an RV yet – still researching – so trying to learn as much as possible before spending the $$$. Thank you for sharing your honest & earnest knowledge!

    Another great vid!
    I just drove home with my first travel trailer last night!!! 2015 Jayco Whitehawk 28DSBH. It was preowned so a few of the items you mentioned were able to be alleviated, but the bombardment of information has been extensive and mind numbing. So much to learn and trying to get it all in beforehand flies out of the window when your hands first touch the trailer. hahaha.  
    This vid helped me so much and I am truly appreciative. I love your channel and am glad you're out there.
    PS. Our first night sleeping in it just happened to be accompanied by a torrential rain storm all through the night. I woke up 3 or 4 times to…. wait for it…. CHECK MY SEALS!!! =) All good so far thankfully.

    Thanks again.

    Ur right about getting ur starter kit items, but not from dealer!!!!!!! They rip U off!!! Go on Amazon and compare ur hose or other items with dealership and Bam!!! The dealership is ripping U off for the exact named product!!!!!!!!! If U do buy from the con artists, please make sure U they match price with Amazon!!!!!!!!! That's what I did!! I saved 100s of dollars!!!!!

    Why do most of The aluminum sided trailers I see come with the cheap painted steel wheels? Who would buy one of these with all the great trailers out there with alloys? Is the manufacturer just being cheap?

    Shouldn’t all of these things be done before you leave the dealership?

    No you do all this before you final sign and or leave the dealership. That way you don't have to worry about bringing it back or worry about them saying you did something wrong.. Even make they plug it in to shore power hook water so you can check for leaks and as far as the starter kits Make them toss them into the deal or go else-wear

    You lost me at "Hot Water Heater", I'm 65 years old and in my life I have never seen a hot water heater. Why would you need to heat hot water?

    I'm on my 4th RV and I've never had one with a "hot water heater". All of mine came with water heaters. Why would you need to heat hot water? My water heater heats cold water.

    You made such a big deal over telling people to “check the seals”…but you didn’t say what they should check for?
    I doubt walking around pointing to seal, seal, seal,…will do much! You did mention cracks, without expounding upon them though?
    Oh, to be fair, this is a great video regardless of anything you miss or fail to cover in detail. It’s super easy to get anything fixed in a timely fashion if you still have the check/money in your hand!
    Kudos for putting this series out there!
