I'm preparing to go pickup my coach on Wednesday and trying to assemble my PDI checklist(s). In addition to the two in the stickies at the top, I could have sworn some time in the last few months I saw someone post a very thorough PDI checklist, but now can't find it.

What PDI checklists have people been using?

Thanks.

I wonder how you check this:

Check bi-directional relay delay (BIRD) operation, both ways.

I guess that's somehow checking to see if the engine battery is charging when plugged into shore, and when not plugged into shore but engine running, check to see house batteries are charging.

What voltage should I see with a multimeter for each scenario?

If your asking me, please don't hold your breath. I haven't even completely read this, just forwarding the list.

That's cool. Now I'm jealous and seriously thinking about ripping off some interior paneling so we can sign ours during our pickup tomorrow.

I also see that our Ventanas have the elusive side service center. The pictures Newmar sent me never had a shot where I could tell.

Good for you on the signing and the side service Center. Yet not on a Dutchstar wow who made that decision. Not making enough money and need to cut this corner...

Very unfortunate that Newmar did not allow Spartan to upgrade the Dutchstar Spartan chassis to be the same but still charging the same up charge for both??????

Did 2 on Tuesday, 2 Today and 2 on Thursday (unless we are out the door). Last coach only saw it at the end, this time we are not missing anything.
