Congrats and welcome. Things I would ask the dealer for are , water regulator, water hoses, sewer hose and fittings, if they are not included buy them before you leave for the trip home. In your case and where you are going I would have a a couple of jugs of RV antifreeze on hand. There are lots of youtube videos on how to winterize and during the PDI find out where the water pump is and look for the antifreeze tube that is connected to the pump for quick winterizing and in my experience that hose is too short to go into the jug so ask them to install an extension piece. ( I have found with dealers if you don`t ask you don`t get).
Make sure you go to the Thor Resource website for all of the manuals relevant to your coach and I downloaded them all to a flash drive (its better than 4 pounds of printed information) but there should be a Thor Info Package with your coach.
Best of luck on your return to the cold as up here in Canada its real cold right now.

We then drove home to PA in 2 days because we had to go to work so no sightseeing. We stayed in Walmartís parking lots but not all Walmartís allow it. It was also our first RV. There is definitely a learning curve when things donít work. As others have said find yourself a local shop that will do work. My personal opinion on the extended warranty is forget it. Take that money you would have spent on the warranty and put it aside for fixes. The warranty does not cover very much. I have used the forum to enlighten myself and ask for help. Unfortunately many times I was unable to fix it myself and had to take it into the shop. I was amazed that even though someone is a Thor dealer if they didnít sell it they often wonít fix it. Luckily we have a small family owned dealership that will do work and are reasonable locally. We videotaped the walk through and it has been helpful. Hope you have many wonderful adventures in your new MH.
Congratulations on the coach. Definitely a learning curve to these things. Unlike with autos many independent RV repair shops can do warranty work and might be quicker and maybe even better than a dealership whose primary business is selling.
