Wowzer! Thanks for all the great info! You're right, some things will be easier to tell than others - like the new tank, if the step goes in/out when supposed to etc... I'm sure I can see those easy
You had a few questions in there so let me reply to those...
- On the step: yes that refers to it not going in/out when supposed to but I will check to see if there is some sort of disable switch to be sure. I saw the rig today and the door was closed but the step was out.
- 3 hydraulic lines leaking HWH: Good idea on moving the coach to a dry spot to look for leaks underneath after they are lowered - will any leaking occur relatively quickly if they are still faulty?
- Level sensor out of level: I can definitely ask if the sensor has been recalibrated b efore running the leak test. My only concern about the issues you raise on lowering jacks prior to this fix taking place - is that I know the jacks have been up and down numerous times since it was at the dealership - I'm not sure what I can do about that one. The front window looks just fine, not sure what other issues I should look for?
- For the hydraulic leak in the bay: (presumed to be a slide) assuming they fixed it, there shouldn't be any fluid for me to initially wipe away right? I can run the slide in/out several time though - then check for any fluids
- Roof: The techs that did the inspection didn't say they found roof leaks just that the roof needed to be cleaned and Spot sealed. But I will ask where the spot sealing was done and try to get up there to look at it. (not really afraid of heights
- Bed deck reinforcement - yes its my understanding that it is the support under the mattress. I'm waiting till owner back on Monday to see if they fill fix this.
- Awnings: they initially told me that they wouldn't fix anything that was cosmetic. I argued that the awnings over the slides were not cosmetic. Those may be the only ones they replace.
- Water heater - how would I know if they replaced the valve? Water would not run into the hot water heater and out the drain? I'm also not clear on what this means "The check valve allows water to backflow into your fresh water tank and the next thing you know you have water running out of your tank into the wet area of your coach" What is considered the "wet area of your coach" the sink/shower?
- They need to do a full water system/plumbing check as the other service place didn't do this. (rig is winterized) but I'll have them leave it UN winterized and keep a ceramic heater in the enclosed tank areas as I'm going to use the coach over the winter to train the dogs to it.
- I know I'm going to have to buy new tires all around... :( I'm already looking at posts related to tires and finding best prices (such an awesome resource iRV2 is!)
THANKYOU for all your wonderful information!!
