Congratulations on the purchase, better keep a watchful eye on the dealer, ask many questions.

Let me know if you find a list that I can use for our 28BHS.

I'm in the process of putting an OUTBACK FAQ together, which will include an additional checklist for OUTBACK PDI's. Not ready yet though! Here are some items I'm including in the list. Maybe some of it will help.

PDI Specific to OUTBACK:

Here are some issues to look for during your inspection:

Gray and black tank labels (exterior) were installed in reverse order
Fenders not attached to center support
AC breakers were labeled wrong
Fuses blowing on electric slide out
Damaged queen bed slide seals (from rain gutter)
Wrong size mattress on lower bunks
Crushed air duct (fill water tank, turn on AC and check)
Antennae crank for leaks
Check all roof-opening sealants for cracks/leaks
Cracked plastic LP bottle cover
Check slide out seals for rain leaks
Check "bike door" for rain leaks
Cabinet doors rubbing cabinet face when opened
Loose exterior wires where battery attaches to frame
Windows all operate properly
Water tank gravity fill hose (inside) too high to allow water in.
Exterior doors adjustment.

Get them to demonstrate:

Awning use
Manual operation of electric slide out
Manual slide and support system
Use of all appliances and systems.
Black & Grey tank dumping procedures
Hitch operations
Electric Brake Controller operation

It's not a complete list, but it should help. You can get a general list at the other posted links.
