Of course there's the obligatory tire age check. I would have the chassis and engine maintenance done unless there is good documentation the it was done recently. Other than that it's check all the appliances, doors and windows, any water intrusion, any steering issues, wipers, etc...

Stew... I am the maintenance type person... i love to do a nice shake down of my rigs...even do it seasonally to make sure everything is functional. Here is a great task to get you warmed up with your new rig. Wash and wax it top to bottom. The exercise allows you to view every bit of the exterior in detail. Then grab the owners manual... do a complete system walk around. Make sure you can find all the items they have labeled and see if they all work. After that ... get underneath.... I have never seen my servicer ever get all of the lube points when I paid for a fluids change and lube. get your grease gun out and find every lube nipple. You can draw them out on part of your manual if they are not marked. Make sure you are satisfied that you have filled each with fresh grease. Check all fluids.... fire up your genny and run it for an hour.... get some STABIL added to your gas and keep STABIL in your maintenance kit. I use the Marine type in my rig...it absorbs more water and has better anti rust inhibitors according to the Stabil guy who came to the RV and boat show.

IF it is on a Workhorse W series chassis, you should VERIFY the Bosch brake recall was completed. Lots more Workhorse info down in the chassis forum below.

WELCOME to iRV2.com, we're glad you joined.

Stew1:
Here is the info you need, pasted from a thread in the WORKHORSE FORUM:

If you don't find a yellow sticker with the recall number 51101-C and the date completed placed under the "hood" somewhere near the master cylinder, then you can verify the "new" calipers by the following:

The new calipers can be identified via the caliper assembly date code, .........
The caliper assembly date code is etched into the part just below the casting part number
4153269 .The first date code was 0155A.

So, IOW, looking at the back side of each caliper you will see the part number 4153269 MOLDED in the metal. The "date code" will be stamped into the metal in under the part number. Any number greater than 0155A means you have new calipers. Absent ANY number stamped under the casting part number means you still have the old style which were recalled.
