Welcome to irv2. Best of luck with it. Take your time as with any new delivery and check everything. AC even if it’s cool outside , heat even if it warm outside. Dump operation even if there’s nothing to dump. Operate the levers. Etc.

Cliff

Test the Andersen valve and water pump. Check the hot water heater. Both electric and propane Test the vacuflush system to make sure it holds vacuum. Run the shower and check for leaks beneath shower door Frame. Run slides in and out. I'm sure I can think of more. Lol

Yes, on ours the slid would hit the pocket doors, (damaged the doors) took it to the dealer twice to repair.

Also:

Check the floor where the slides come in to the coach.

Drive it before hand see if the work station opens, and if there is any pulling on the steering wheels.

Check the awing, ours collapsed the second time we used it.

It is a beautiful rig good luck with yours!!

The attached thread is a good, still ongoing, very long read and valuable source of information for a new Bounder owner. 2016 was the year Fleetwood modified their floorplans to the current version. Only difference I am aware of is they added auto gen start in 2017 and changed the appliances and details. I would buy another Fleetwood product if the floorplan suited my needs.

I have a question about this model 33C does anyone know how tall it is. The specs. say
12' 10'' , my storage is only 12' 6''. It looks like I may need to find another place. If anyone knows for sure it would help.
Thanks

We, stayed the first night at the dealers and checked most everything out. We
had a few things all just little stuff (8-10 things) got them all fixed. Then we
hit the road and stoped at a RV park on our way back home. So far we like it,
really like the lay out far us.
I do have a couple of questions though. Hope someone can help me on here.
1: I can't get the ice maker to work. I have turned the water value both ways
but can't here any water running to the ice maker. I also tried to do the reset.
2:I have the Dish only with two Wally receiver's. I was told that I would get
a 250 dollar credit when I activated it. Anyone get this. I have Direct at home,
but change every few years to get the cost down. So if I get the 250 credit I can switch it over to the dish or just use the 250 for the pay as you go plan.
Thanks for any help.

Look under the kitchen sink that is where the ice maker water valve for my Bounder was located. With the way my Bounder was set up if you put a 4 way HDMI splitter behind the bedroom TV you could run all 4 TV's from that location with one satellite receiver. I use DISH pay as you go for the R,V you pay 30 days in advance for your service. I have no info on any promo packages. With the Roadtrip Mission antenna which is most likely what you have you will have to make sure that some DIP switches under the dome are set to the provider you are going to use. You can not get Direct in HD using the Roadtrip Mission. If your coach has the recievers pre installed it's a safe bet that the DIP's are set for that brand but just in case.

remember if your not connected to city water you'll need to have the Anderson valve set to normal and the water pump on. If you have a Samsung 18 cf refrigerator there is a switch located on the ice maker to get it to cycle. It will need to cycle a few times with pressure in the system to purge the air out.
The location of the switch is mentioned in the thread I posted earlier but I don't remember where.
