New Inspection list
Does anyone have an inspection/PDI list they used when picking up their RV, a list of must checks. I do have a small list started but want to make sure I'm not missing anything important, as this will be my first RV purchase. We will be picking it up the last week of this month at Sherman RV. Any ideas or strong points I need to pay extra attention too would be much appreciated. I am really looking forward to finally getting into my new RV as is the wife, but I need to make sure all is good with our new Tiffin Red 37PA. Any info is much appreciated!:dance:

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your purchase of a Tiffin. Are you purchasing the Tiffin new/used from a dealer, purchasing from a consignment dealer, or purchasing from a private seller? If purchasing from a reputable dealer, they should perform a comprehensive PDI for you to review. If purchasing from a consignment dealer or private seller, I highly recommend hiring a certified RV inspector to inspect the Tiffin and build any problems that are identified into the purchase agreement. The NRVIA website can assist in finding a certified inspector -->

Regardless of the PDI report, I physically test all of the major components before purchase i.e. slides properly move in and out, steps move properly, A/Cs - furnace - hot water heater work properly, all appliances and entertainment systems work properly, generator operates properly, toilets flush properly (especially if macerator type toilets), awnings work properly and of course for a motorhome that it has been taken on a lengthy test drive to assure engine and transmission are functioning properly.

And I assure there are no water leaks. To do all of this testing means the motorhome needs to be connected to shore power and water at the dealership or private seller's location.

Hope this helps!

Here is one used by most pros (or some version thereof) that's quite thorough imo.

This is one I made several years ago, you're welcome to copy, paste, throw away, etc, etc. Note its intended for an F53 chassis, but its generic enough that it could be used for anything.


This is one I specifically use for an early model F53 chassis:
