To be owner Aspen 3010bdhs

Hey everyone, Iím preparing to buy an Aspen trail 3010bdhs in the next week or two. Is there anything I should or need to know about the TT? Any major issues youíve had that I need to look at closely while at the dealer? I was planning on having them fill the fresh water tank to the top and run the hot water heater to check all the seals. Ill be living in it for a month down in FL so I want to make sure I wonít have any major issues. I can fix seals and small stufff but any big items the Aspen line up has problems with? Thanks in advance for any insight!!

Take a look at this.

Don't let the dealer give you the bum's rush because they will want the papers signed and you on your way, out of their hair. Notify them you are going though the inspection process and will need the time to do it thoroughly.

Make sure EVERYTHING works before you leave the lot. Easier to get it fixed before you leave than afterwards.

I did a PDI on my current unit prior to picking it up. Then took another 3 hours on the day of pickup to make sure everything was corrected. Check everything, including DVD players. That was the only thing I missed on the initial PDI, found a bad AB switch, but let them slide on it, they sent me a new one within a week.

There is madness to my methods
