New 2007 Solaris 2363 owner tomorrow

Hello to all

If everything works out my wife and I will be new owners of the above trailer tomorrow.

Anyone have information on a Sunline PDI checklist?

If not, anything specific should we check out or watch out for tomorrow?

We are very excited. We swore we would not do what others do but we are upgrading from a 2004 Trailmanor we bought just last summer.

I knew we should not have gone to the RV show in Jacksonville.

I am a little nervous about having a trailer with a rubber roof since I will store it in my yard surrounded by trees. The TM roof really got dirty by all the leaves falling on top of it.

I hope the quality of this trailer holds up to its reputation

Mike

Hello Mike,

I'd like to welcome you & your wife to the group and joining the wonderful family of very very happy Sunline COACH owners. Sorry, I can't help you with a PDI check list, but I'm sure some one here will, or go to RV.Net and search "PDI" you'll get a wealth of info there. The degree of quality in your new 2363 will be very apparent once you really start loading it up and using it. You will no longer "doubt" the quality of the COACH you have purchased.

As for the roof and trees, sorry I can't help you as I have an aluminum roof, but I also have an aluminun RVPort over him. 28L x 14W X 10H delivered, installed for $1338. Makes my cleaning a lot less.

Geesh, and you won't even have to wait for nice weather to be able to use it,

Kitty

Hi Mike,

If you select the option "MS WORD - Tom Boles' Pre-Delivery Checklist
" from the link identified in the previous reply (i.e., http://www.angelfire.com/trek/buenavistas/) this will get you a MS Word version of Tom Boles' PDI in a table format that you can save, print out, and use it as a check list during your walk-through.

Plan to spend a few hours doing a walk-through, check everything out thoroughly, and have them fix any issues prior to you taking delivery.

Congratulations on your new Sunline and welcome to the forum.

Happy Camping.
Hutch

Picked up the trailer Thursday. Camped overnight in my driveway to test out the majority of the systems.

Major difference in towing from the Trailmanor. Having the trailer sitting up in the wind makes a big difference versus the TM hiding behind the tow vehicle.

A couple of quality issues that should be easily fixed and one I am not sure what to do.

1. The drain plug on the H20 heaters drips just a little when the tank is full.

2. One corner of the valance over the rear door popped up. Looks like the nail they used pulled through the valance. Anyone else have this problem or suggestion how to fix this?

3. The one issue I am not sure what to do is it looks like when they were cutting the carpet for installation they sliced the vinyl floor. I am sure I want the dealer to mess with this or not. IT is very irritating but I knew going in there is no factory support. I guess all I can do for the moment is lay a rug over the slice.

The floor plan worked out exactly how we thought it would. I can get comfortable in this trailer and the spouse has a real fridge to work with.

Mike

For the vinyl, you might want to use a clear silicon to cover the crack in the floor if you are going to leave it. In that way, nothing (like water) can get in or underneath.

For the plug in the water heater, you can remove it, then use a bit of vinyl plumber's/teflon tape around the threads then re-tighten. SHould be good as new, it MIGHT even jsut need tightened.

Mike,

The drain plug probably leaks because it was installed crooked and got striped. You could try to seal it up with Teflon tape, but your best bet is to replace it. They don't cost that much and should never leak unless put in wrong. You could also replace the old plug with a metal fitting with a valve from you local hardware store. Then it'll never leak. If only I had a dime for every drain plug I've stripped out...
