New Owner Redwood 36FL

Just purchased a 2014 36FL. I will pick it up this Friday. Dealer had to order the washer and dryer stack. From reading on forum seems like several owners have had issues from washer drain not being plummed correct. Any info on issues would be great so I can address them with dealer before i leave with unit!!

I believe most of the issues were with the 36RL where the plumbing is routed under the bed.

We have the W/D prep package, but I capped the fittings and shelved the cupboard to provide additional storage.

Enjoy your FL, it is a great floorplan and welcome to the forum

Someplace warm? HaHa...not really. In the middle of this nasty weather we decided to think summer so we traveled down to the Chesapeake Bay and stayed at Elk Neck State Park in Maryland (highly recommended). We figured if we ate enough Blue Claws we'd force the changing of seasons. It didn't work...the changing of the seasons that is, but we had a fantastic time. We were literally the only campers in the entire park. I wonder why?

If I didn't know better I would have thought your picture was of our rig in the snow. That is exactly how our rig looks in our home sight in Iowa during the winter. We finally got smart and went to Florida for the winter

Do a real good pre delivery inspection. check fit/finish on all woodwork/cabinets, have the dealer instruct on all system operations and appliances. Make sure you turn on refrigerator and use elec and gas options, turn on heater and AC units and make sure they work, take a TV with you and make sure you get reception to all tv connections that do not have a TV attached, check the vacumn cleaner and make sure a bag is in it (unit is in the cellar) check water filter to ensure a filter is emplaced, again, unit is in the cellar. Check battery boxes to ensure you have 2 batteries, extend the awnings and slide outs to ensure they work, extend the antenna and make sure it works with the TVs. If you have a satellite, turn it on and make sure it works, turn the dishwasher on (if you have one) and run it thru a full cycle. Turn on washer and dryer and run through a full cycle. Check paint on the outside, look down the side of the coach for overspray, clear coat not applied correctly, paint runs, etc Check the roof to see if the roof fabric has wrinkles (no wrinkles should be there) fill the grey and black tanks and go through the process of draining and flushing, fill fresh water tanks and turn off "city" water to see if water pump works, turn on hot water heater to see if it works (use gas and electric) Check if Gas Bottles are full. Check tire pressure. Have them instruct you on the operation of the Lippert Level Up system. Check to see if the fireplace works. I am sure there are a few more things but these should help you check your new unit out.

COLJDM, your list sounds like all the most important things to look for. When we picked up our coach almost two years ago we did the same basic pre-flight. Just common sense items and don't let them rush you. Use your hands as if you were blind and feel, push, pull everything. A few minutes well spent. Our dealer went over my list and we had another half day to check out everything again.
