Congratulations!!! Make sure you do a very good PDI and write everything down! Check the operation of everything, drawers, doors, electrical, water, generator, everything. Give the dealer a copy of your list when you're done and insist the items be fixed immediately.

Congrats and welcome to the forum.

Since you are buying a Freedom Elite you are apparently purchasing from Camping World where the reputation for service is less than stellar.

My advice to you is to call the sales person and inform them you will not take delivery of the coach (to include final document signing) until all issues are worked off and then do a thorough PDI and enforce the all items worked off provision.

Also, inform the sale person that during the PDI all systems must be connected to include shore power, water and cable and then check all systems during the PDI.

And most importantly, there are some items such as adjustments, appearance defects (bubbles in wall covering etc...) that must be documented during the PDI or they will not be covered under warranty. Read and understand that provision of the warranty before arriving for the PDI and don't, under any circumstances, let the dealer tell you anything different.

Also test everything in Dry Camp mode while not connected to anything, especially exercise the batteries.
