  • What comes 1st?

    I will be taking delivery of my 32-5m at the end of August most likely which got me thinking about the PDI checklist. Please remind of the typical process. Its been 5 years since I did this but is it the PDI walk and review 1st then sign the contract papers or does the dealer make you sign the contract papers then the PDI ? I could call the dealer and ask but would rather ask this knowledgeable group.

    We special ordered our 2016 29-5t, and upon arrival at the dealer, we did the PDI 1st, then signed the purchase papers while a couple of small items found during the PDI were being addressed.

    We looked at the PDI, as a chance to catch any issue(s), before driving home and having to return to the dealer at a later date for repairs.

        If you can bring someone with you to help do the PDI, do it. You will be distracted thinking about signing paperwork, even if you don't until after the PDI, it will be nice to have someone there who will only focus on PDI. Especially bring someone who is somewhat familiar with Northwood's sort of known problems like the leaking shower enclosure, among other things. Call ahead to the dealer and ask them to have water in the fresh water tank. If they can have propane hooked up, great. Also, be sure battery is hooked up. If they'll also plug in to shore power, even better. Check every system.
