When we picked up our Axis it was the middle of Feb 10F-20F outside. They had the coach inside their heated service bay filled with water to show us all the faucets worked, hot water, etc. The tech then proceeded to show us how to winterize it.

Its a small world so who knows... Maybe our paths will cross one day
Unfortunately RV's are driven from the factory to the dealer. Which means that the initial break in period may have already been done by the transporter instead of the final owner (seeing as your a bit away from the factory you'll probably encounter this as well).
The good news with the V-10, though, is that it really isn't broken in fully until about 8,000-10,000 miles. Somewhere in that range is when you'll notice a slight uptick in the mpg figures (I've noticed this on the past 3 V-10's we've owned).
