We are expecting delivery of our new hybrid RV, a Rockwood Roo 23IKSS, in a couple of weeks. Does anyone have suggestions on what to do before we take possession? I've read the article at Trailer Life magazine (https://www.trailerlife.com/lifestyle/rv-living/rv-delivery-dos-and-donts/) but wondering if anyone out there has additional wisdom to share.

We plan to follow their suggestion to do a "shakedown trip" right after we take possession. I just happened to stumble across a discussion on how to season the seams on the tent beds. Never would have thought of that. So if you have ideas about what to do AFTER taking possession, I'd appreciate that too.

Take a checklist. Run every system. Crawl underneath and inspect. Check tire manufacture dates. All before you sign anything.

Look online for a list to ask learn about. I’d suggest video recording the tech showing you everything.

Go to the Forest River Forums, under the Library tab there is a PDI checklist in the Most Popular Files you can download and take with you.

All good answers above + I second a shakedown trip as soon as is convenient. Youll prob catch everything you want to change/fix in a weekend, but i'd make it a week at least so as to start enjoying your new RV.

What I ran into was the fact that even after being shown how to run the TV and radio/DVD/CD/BT, I still can't remember how! Oh, and how to shut off the outside speakers.
Pay close attention to the PDI, and do a shake down trip to figure out the rig.
Retorque the lug nuts, check the hitch set up, do NOT forget a blender, and have fun.
