Google NIRVC PDI delivery checklist. If I remember it's like 238 items. We spent 2.5 days going over every one of them. It was a great alternative to FPU, which was just too far away for us.

There is a pinned information thread in this forum that has a Newmar specific PDI check list.

Here is a copy. It has other information you should follow regarding your new coach in addition to the check items.

I found this post in the Entegra section which gives a link to the Newmar PDI but the link doesn't work.

Without mentioning names , where I purchased my Newmar 4369 2021 in sw Fl canít get an appointment for warranty work and maintenance til March

I bought new for many reasons mostly not to inherit problems

Getting service at this mega dealership pre and post delivery has been less than reasonable.

Selling these new coaches with known little items not addressed and having to solve them with zero dealer support is unacceptable .

Contact newmar directly. Bypass your dealership, and schedule direct. The sooner you call them with your list, the sooner you will be enjoying your rv.

Just read all 4 pages of this thread for the first time. I have 3 thoughts in no specific order:

1. Swirl marks in paint are easily "hidden" with wax or paint sealer as swirl marks are simply fine line scratches in the surface of the paint. The wax, while it is there, partially to fully fills in the scratches making then seemingly disappear. Problem is a few washings later using too much soap, or too warm water, or too aggressive a wash mitt removes the wax and son of a gun, those swirls are really still there.
When cut and buff is done correctly, the surface becomes scratch free PRIOR to any paint protection being applied such as wax, ceramic coating, etc. My message here is don't settle for a buff and wax, that is not a cut and buff.

2. The RV dealership network is woefully understaffed with quality, properly trained employees. It's just the nature of the beast. If you are ordering a brand new Newmar, pay the extra fee for factory delivery. It is my personal opinion that that is the only option to potentially drive away with a mostly perfect product. They have the trained staff, and they have the parts even if it means grabbing it from the assembly line. Save yourselves months to years of aggravation.

3. "Recalls" are almost exclusively limited to genuine safety related concerns. No RV manufacturer is going to recall a coach for paint/trim issues. At best, a manufacturer may issue a "service bulletin" to their dealer network notifying then that they are aware of a particular issue and informing the network as to what they will cover and for how long.
