Annual Inspections - what to expect/ask for?

Hi, my TT is up for annual inspection (1st year) Have not put many miles on it, it is parked minutes from a fishing lake. To go to the KZ dealer would be now approx. 550 miles round trip. So thinking of taking it to Camping World 3 miles away. I have an extended warranty so have to keep maintenance up; good idea anyhow. My question: what should I expect in terms of inspection and costs? For example, do I really need the bearing repacked after 700 miles?

Note: Extended warranty is not through dealer or KZ.

P.s. Did search and could not find anything now I see there is a similar post below. But does not address extended warranty compliance.

Thanks

Might want to indicate where you live, I imagine it varies by state. Here in California there is no inspection.

I think he means annual maintenance based on warranty. I would call the manufacturer and find out where the nearest authorized dealer is. Also make sure you are specific what you are asking in your post and put your city and state in your signature.

Ahh, that's possible, but I know some states (i.e. New York) do require inspections.

Does the owners manual state a maintenance schedule? If so the extended warranty company likely specifies to follow that. A biggie is roof inspection to avoid for possible integrity problems. CW has stated inspection agendas methinks.

Our extended Warranty states that WE can do our own Inspections, we just need to keep records that show when and what was checked. I took it to the dealer the second year we had it, cost $125.00 Hr. labor, It passed. that's when I was told and shown in the Warranty I can do it myself.
